This show is hysterical! Steve, Jane, Susan, Sally, Patrick and Jeffery have some interesting interactions and friendships/relationships. coupling It’s from the BBC and they tried to make a US version but it flopped, which is funny since some of the shows seemed identical except for the accents (although that is one of the great parts).

Some people think it’s a copy of Friends but that’s never crossed my mind. It’s more of a Sex and the City with both sides of the conversation. Although when Jeff talks to women it’s reminiscent of the pain of watching Ross talk to women. I think they’ve written him out for the most recent season which hasn’t hit the syndicated airwaves here yet. Too bad, he’s one of my favorite characters.

Jeff is this goofy guy who says goofy things.

Do you know what would be the best way to wipe out all of human kind if you were a space alien with a special kind of mind ray…? Make all women telepathic. Because if they suddenly found out about the kind of stuff that goes on in our heads they would kill us all on the spot.

FYI – Jeff does have a slightly stranger mind than most of us (but that doesn’t mean what he said isn’t true).

More quotes are on-line at the IMDB and the BBC site and the BBC America site.

I guess the best part of the Jeff-isms is that he always thinks what he thinks is normal.

Jeff: We were just spending a quiet evening in front of the television. In the course of events I swallowed some of her jewelry.
Steve: You what?
Jeff: There was a swallowage incident. I swallowed an item.
Steve: Right?
Jeff: Now normally when I swallow some of Julia’s jewelry
Steve: No no, Jeff please. Normally… has never been used in the sentence before
Jeff: Well, you know what it’s like when you’ve got your own actual real life girlfriend. It’s like you got a woman with a nudity switch. Sometimes when she’s laying there and she’s just so so totally naked, I can’t control myself. I just sort of hoover.
Steve: Ok.
Jeff: Obviously now and then in the course of any nudity hoovering you’re gonna ingest an item. Now normally, I remain calm, let nature take it’s course, and in due time slip the relevant item back into her jewelry box.
Steve: I see.
