This never gets old though.

Tristan Farnon Quotes III

Siegfried: Could never work out why they didn’t give me that job you know.

Tristan: Couldn’t have anything to do with the fact you got blind drunk and wiped the windshield of your car with a dead chicken I suppose?


Siegfried: She’s younger brother’s latest conquest!

James: Really? I hadn’t heard.

Tristan: Well, I’m not one to natter on about my personal life, others do that for me!


James: Well since one good turn deserves another…

Tristan: *indicates empty glass*

James: Yes, you’re going to need a drink! I’m afraid you’ve drawn the short straw.

Tristan: You mean Siegfried’s drawn it for me?

James: Got it in one.

Tristan: So what’s the latest demonstration of brotherly love then?


Tristan: I know that dawn is the traditional time for settling these matters of honour but, I’d never get up in time!


Tristan: I think this is what’s known as collective responsibility. Siegfried loses the cat and everybody else has to find her.


James: Tristan, everything I ever try and do for Rowan Garth [his house] goes wrong. Everything Helen does goes right. Why is that?

Tristan: It’s one of the immutable laws of the universe: she’s a woman.

Do you like attractive and adorable Englishmen? Do you like puppies? Do you like WWII era dramas? Do you like dry humour and snark? Do you like quaint and rustic countryside? Do you like awkward yet somehow charming romance? Do you like goofy pub scenes and parties gone wrong? Do you like cows that can wink? Do you want to learn about a dog named Tricki Woo? If so, All Creatures Great and Small is probably the show for you.

Tristan Quotes II

Tristan: You know I’d do anything for you James?

James: Well of course.

Tristan: Anything at all!

James: That’s what I thought!

Tristan: Except for one thing. I’m not going back in the car with that cat!

James: *unamused look*


[About the war]

Siegfried: When we get back, to whatever horror there is, I mean if the worst has happened. And I think it will have done. I want you to promise me one thing.

Tristan: What?

Siegfried: Don’t do anything damned foolish.

Tristan: Me?

Siegfried: I mean, don’t be a coward but don’t go in for any empty heroics.

Tristan: Well I’m not likely to.

Siegfried: On the contrary, it’s exactly the sort of damn foolish sort of nonsense you are likely to do and…well just don’t that’s all!

Tristan: Nor you Siegfried


Siegfried: Now, one other thing, I must insist we all carry our gas masks with us at all times?

Tristan: At all times?

Siegfried: Yes!

Tristan: Could be a bit difficult eh James?

Siegfried: Tristan, James really! There are ladies present!

Mrs Hall: I don’t know what he’s talking about!


Siegfried: I’m sorry, I’m not at my best at the moment.

Helen: I think you’re at your very best, *kisses him*, and I wouldn’t have you any other way.

James: Oh, I agree.

Tristan: Go on then, prove it! You kiss him too!
