I paid a quid for these underpants and I’ve got about 50 pence worth stuck up me arse!
Sorry, but I could not resist another Royle Family quote, of which there are many
Brilliant delivery and timing goes to make this a bit of pure sensational comedy from the cast of the Royle Family. Famed for picking at his body parts, Jim explodes with this witty retort when his daughter, Denise, suggests he should stop doing this.
The whole quote goes as follows:
Denise Royle: Dad, stop fiddling with yourself.
Jim Royle: I’m not fiddling with meself, I paid a quid for these underpants and I’ve got about 50 pence worth stuck up me arse.
Barbara Royle: She’s right. If you’re not picking your arse, you’re picking your teeth.
Jim Royle: I’ll pick what I want in me own house and when she gets her own house she can pick what she likes – her nose, her arse, her teeth. Just go and treat yourself.
Barbara Royle: Oh, I’m ashamed of this family, I am really.
