...that answers that question. Whenever I tuned into ITV4 The Professionals were on I'd get to thinking what happened to Lewis Collins?
...to this. Tony Soprano from “The Sopranos”. One of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite TV shows.

...Rodney. John Sullivan who died last week was responsible for two and more of the funniest moments in TV history.
...and don't call me Shirley. Come on, everyone's using it, it's one of the classic comedy lines of all times, in one of the classic comedy films of all time.
