“I did a lot of my degree on nuclear weapons, so I have quite fixed views.”
“Masterchef is like so harsh because it’s the only show where you don’t get to hug people when you’re rejected.”

“So he’s like the guy who’s my MALE friend.”
“I told you in Debenhams last week what I want for Christmas and I’m not telling you again if you can’t be bothered.” (One kid who was unimpressed by Santa’s work ethic.)
“Shower your loved ones with festive logs.” (Somewhat confused ad for yule log cakes.)
“For goodness sake Jeremy, we can just chop it up and give it to the pony.”
“What are you doing? Checking your teeth? Oh, you’re checking if you’ve got food in your teeth. Yeah, you do.”
