“So Harry says: “You don’t like me anymore.”
“Why not?”
And he says, “‘Cause you got so terribly pretentious.”
And Harry says, “Pretentious, moi?

As said by Mr Johnson (Nicky Henson) in the outrageously funny Torquay-set show Fawlty Towers  (1975 – 1979). Long considered one of the greatest British sitcoms ever, the main character of Basil Fawlty was based on a real-life rude hotel owner. Creator John Cleese had met him when he was still a Monty Python member.  You can find other examples of the show’s humour here.

    • It’s on the first episode. One of the show’s first jokes I think. Set the tone 🙂 I think my absolute favourite is when he grows so exasperated with a guest that he asks them if they want the hotel moved to the left haha.
