  • Part 2 -

  • Bob is the only person on this show who gets interrogated by both the other team and the members of his own team

  • My favourite thing about Bob’s tales is how he consistently turns to Lee to tell the most outrageous parts...

  • "Fingerprints on an abandoned handrail" and "Sniper's Dream..." are enough, but "I do beg your pardon, but we are in your garden." elevate that story to Pythonesque levels of Comedy Gold...

  • Petition to get Bob Mortimer, James Acaster, and Henning Wehn on the same episode so we can watch David Mitchell slowly spiral into madness trying to wrap his head around their ridiculous stories.

  • The sudden "WOLF" had me in tears, Bob's stories get me every time. I'd listen to him talk about his random adventures for hours

  • "Sniper's dream we used to call him" is still the best phrase I've ever heard on this show.

  • Bob Mortimer is like a child's an imaginary friend come to life

  • He reminds me so much of my grandfather that it's almost nostalgic. The rambling, the stories that lead to knowhere, the zest for life. My grandad once tries to escape his nursing home by dressing as a baby and getting his mate to push him. He didn't actually want to leave, he just wanted to "keep them on their toes".

  • I urge everybody to read Caitlin Moran's recent interview with Bob. His stories of crippling shyness and loneliness as a child make the fact that he is now one of the most loved people in Britain, if not the world, all the more heartening.

  • “We do beg your pardon but we are in your garden” is one of the funniest things I’ve heard. And i love how much Bob laughs when Lee says “Sergeant Bytheway”

  • "Mum said DON'T GO OUT!" is one of the most underrated gags in this reel.

  • The way he says “hand lion” like it’s an entirely regular thing is hilarious. He doesn’t even try to explain what it is, just how it works, like THAT’s the part that needs clarifying.

  • Bob Mortimer is the only guest where his team is just as confused as their opponents.

  • Sometimes I wonder whether Bob is just throwing silly little lies into his truths to make them more interesting, or if he really is a completely, utter madman who lives in some alternate, Mortimer reality. I really hope it’s the latter.

  • You get so lost in Bob's stories and then David brings you back to reality by summarizing what Bob has said which sounds so ludicrous and unbelievable and yet almost always turns out to be true 😂

  • So smart to always have Bob and David on opposite teams. David is like a brilliant prosecutor, but Bob is like the mob boss who has the perfect answer for everything. So the whole thing usually ends in a stalemate.

  • "I am a hair-dresser, David."

  • I've watched this video in it's entirety at least 10 times. It's like an old friend I visit every now and then to lift my spirits. It's yet to fail.
