  • Jennifer : George was very sick at the end, you know. Very sick in the end. Stripped of his faculties. One day he asked if I'd help speed the going; put him out of his misery.

    Dawn : And did you?

    Jennifer : Had to. Hit him over the head with a shovel, dumped him on the bonfire.

  • Jennifer : I don't want to eat your skin, Madonna! I'm not a crazy!

    Dawn : Yeah, she's not even a fan. She hates your work!

    Both : Madonna!

  • Jennifer : Male or female caucasian... dead... Aged anywhere between... ten and fifty years old... Two small bosoms... huge buttocks... too obscene. Two hands... attached to the arms. There's evidence of bruising to the head, the neck, the botty, the pee-pee.

  • Jennifer : With me on the couch today is our financial specialist Dawn French. Hello Dawn!

    Dawn : Hello!

    Jennifer : Now Dawn is here today to talk to us about what's going on in the market today. Dawn, tell us a little bit about what we might find in the market today.

    Dawn : Well, in the market today you'll find apples, bananas, all types of fresh produce and things of that nature. Of course if we're talking about a farmer's type market you'll find all sorts of knick-knacks including those little plastic flowers that dance when you talk to them. of course they're not the Japanese ones, they're the imitation English ones.

    Jennifer : Right. Actually I was talking about the financial market.

    Dawn : Oh, the financial market! Well in the financial market right now people are very concerned about... money.

  • Jennifer : Perhaps you could tell us, for instance, what one might be spending if one wereto invest in gold?

    Dawn : Right, well, for about fifteen pounds you can get a fine thin chain bracelet. For twenty five pounds you can get a necklace and perhaps your initials in some of that curly swirly writing. But I feel duty bound to warn you that if you are looking for something such as a chunky identity bracelet, you may find yourself paying upwards of fifty pounds.

    Jennifer : Well! A word to the wise, there!

  • Jennifer : A lot of our viewers seem to be having a lot of trouble discerning the difference between a pension scheme and a unit trust.

    Dawn : Oh yes, I get that one a lot. Now listen, people, I don't know how many times I can explain this to you. The first one is a PENSION SCHEME, and the second is a UNIT TRUST.

    Jennifer : Well, that clears that up, then.

  • Jennifer : Well, we've almost run out of time, but perhaps we can finish up with a bit of the word on the street?

    Dawn : Right. The word on the street is... many a muckle makes a muckle.

  • Dawn : Listen, I really don't want you to take this personally or think that I'm being cruel or unkind, but you're really just a hideous, talentless bitch with a foul attitude, aren't you?

    Jennifer : Well, thanks to you AND your mother.

  • Jennifer : Do you know who really has it all? Jeri Hall. She is an international woman, that woman. She's got one leg in Texas and one leg in London, and the whole world in between.

  • Jennifer : [as Madonna, to the tune of "Me Against the Music"]  Hey Britney, did you see what I can do with this pole? Come over here, I got somethin' to show ya...

    Dawn : [as Britney Spears]  You can do this on your own, I'm goin' home, I gotta drone...

  • Jennifer : For the sake of our friendship I am willing to forego the Tatania in favour of the Lola.

  • Dawn : And once I have given you that capital letter, what will you be doing with it?

    Jennifer : Well, if I can go out on a limb here and make an executive decision, I am going to say that we will be photocopying it, probably passing it around the office and tacking it up on bulliten boards. Exciting!

  • Jennifer : Now, I've prepared a little mock-up for you Jo, I hope that you approve. Would it be safe to say that THIS is the size that you'd be thinking of for your book "Rock Stars and Their Toilet Seats"? Pop-up size, Jo?

    Dawn : Yes, well, that size, definately, but certainally not that thick.

    Jennifer : Of course, yes. And although we've got Princess Stephanie in there for the mock-up, obviously it WILL be Bob Geldolf. And I wonder, Jo, have you given any consideration to incorperating pop-up?

    Dawn : Can I suggest something? Plop-up.

  • Jennifer : Celebrity gossip! So I decided to see a play about a week ago. A small thing, something to do with morality in the art world, very high brow. Well the curtains opened, amazing, lavish sets. Great acting. But you'll never guess what happened. This woman, all of a sudden, walked across the stage. It was Madonna! She just walked over to the fireplace, took off her coat, and then proceeded to lounge about for the entire show. I mean, what was she thinking? And the actors of course were totally professional, acted as if she wasn't even there. Perhaps she thought that Gwyneth Paltrow was doing a show there and she would just stop by to say hello. But then she had the nerve to take the curtain call with those people!

    Dawn : What a deluded cow!

    Jennifer : Yes, but you haven't heard the whole of it! I went back a few days later hoping to catch the play undisturbed, and she did it again! Walked right over to the fireplace, took off her coat so I knew she was staying.

    Dawn : My God. Ever since that woman moved to London it's like she thinks she owns the place. Well, did you at least get your money back?

    Jennifer : No. But I did sell the story to Pop Trash magazine. Big bucks!

  • Jennifer : [Introducing musician Rufus Wainwright]  Ladies and Gentlemen... Loofah Wetwipe!
