Episode Quotes
David: I don't look upon this like it's the end, I look upon it like it's moving on, you know? It's almost like my work here's done, you know? I can't imagine Jesus going "Oh, I've told a few people here in Bethlehem I'm the son of God, can I just stay here with Mum and Dad now?" "No! You gotta move on. You gotta spread the word. You gotta go to Nazareth, please." And that's, very much like... me.

David: I can wake up one morning and go "Ooh, I don't feel like working today, can I just stay in bed?" "Ooh, don't know, better ask the boss." "David can I stay in bed all day?" "Yes you can David." (laughs) Both me, I'm not-- That's not me in bed with another bloke called David.

Helena: Is there a better half?
David: David quipped, "Why buy a book when you can join a library?"

Dawn: A real relationship isn't like a fairy tale. I f you think that for the next forty years, every time you see each other you're going to glow, or, you know, every time you hold hands there's going to be electricity, then, you're kidding yourself really, you know? What about reliability, or er, someone paying the mortgage, or someone who's never been out of work. Those are the more important, practical things, you know? In reality.

David: Life is just a series of peaks and troughs. And you don't know whether you're in a trough until you're climbing out, or on a peak until you're coming down. And that's it you know, you never know what's round the corner. Er, but it's all good, you know. "If you want the rainbow, you've gotta put up with the rain." Do you know which 'philosopher' said that? Dolly Parton! And people say she's just a big pair of tits.
