Hooked on Fry & Laurie

I'm in love with these guys at the moment.
Bought series 1 and 2 of 'A bit of Fry & Laurie' whilst out with Nawal last week and they've been on repeat ever since.
There's one particular bit that cracks me up because of its brilliance. Here it is:

"I think it was Donald Mainstock, the great amateur squash player who pointed out how lovely I was. Until that time I think it was safe to say that I had never really been aware of my own timeless brand of loveliness. But his words smote me, because of course you see, I am lovely in a fluffy moist kind of way and who would have it otherwise?
I walk, and let’s be splendid about this, in a lightly accented cloud of gorgeousness that isn’t far short of being, quite simply terrific.
The secret of smooth almost shiny loveliness, of the order of which we are discussing, in this simple, frank, creamy soft way, doesn’t reside in oils, unguents, balms, ointments, creams, astringents, milks, moisturisers, liniments, lubricants, embrocations or balsams, to be rather divine for just one noble moment, it resides, and I mean this in a pink slightly special way, in ones attitude of mind.
To be gorgeous, and high and true and fine and fluffy and moist and sticky and lovely, all you have to do is believe that one is gorgeous and high and true and fine and fluffy and moist and sticky and lovely.
And I believe it of myself, tremulously at first and then with mounting heat and passion, because, stopping off for a second to be super again, I’m so often told it.
That’s the secret really"
