I only know of one of these panelists going into the episode, and it’s Cathy Dennis, whose last appearance was on the very second episode EVER of Buzzcocks. And she kept persisting that the lyrics were ‘a barrel of fudge’. And she was adorable.
Craig Cash is a television comedian and actor. Boothby Graffoe is a bizarre musical stand-up, sort of like a pre-tim-Minchin Tim Minchin. DJ Spoony is a rap-based DJ.
Cathy just keeps giving these overly complicated answers to the Dylan-Britney one.
Sean: “Cathy…I appreciate the effort, but the show’s not really that complicated.”
Mark: “Cathy, you can say whatever ya like.”
Mark’s thought bubble: “If I’m nice to her, maybe she’ll write me a hit song.”
Boothby on the Subterranean Homesick Blues video: “You can tell this was filmed in London, because the next sign Dylan flips reads ‘golf sale.’
Mark: “Instead of saying fore, Dylan just says ‘look out kid.’
Boothby on Bark at the Moon-era Ozzy: “You look at the picture on the right, you’ll see Bonnie Tyler…hasn’t aged well…”
Boothby: “Can we see him when he gets out of the car? There. On the moped.”
Boothby: “That’s Osama bin Laden.”
Phill: “Delivering Pizza.”
Mark: “I DIDN’T ORDER THE ANTHRAX TOPPING! IT SAID ‘OLIVES’!”
Phill has a brief moment to redo the lyrics to OutKast’s Miss Jackson, as “OSAMA BIN LADEN, WOOOOOO! I AM FOR REEEEALLL!”
Spoony: “See, I don’t think that Will Smith track’s his best one. I think he’s takin’ the piss in it. And here, Ozzy’s drinkin’ it. So there’s the connection.”
Sean: “Cathy, come home…”
Cathy: “I HAVE got an idea…”
Mark: “Oh, god…”
Cathy’s attempt at doing the first intro is hysterical because she keeps screwing up the flute part, and then she screws up a hint. Craig even goes “you honestly write songs??”
Cathy, for the second intro, says she doesn’t know the song, so an annoyed Mark comes over, says “I’ll do the singing, you do the smart remarks.” And he does the intro for her, with Sean.
And then, a second into the intro, Cathy says “OH, I REMEMBER IT!” So Mark rolls his eyes and switches back to his desk.
Cathy says she’ll be singing as Julie Andrews.
Sean: “Does that make me the Van Trump family?”
Mark: “THE VAN TRUMP FAMILY? They had to leave because they farted all over Austria. THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF *FRRRT*!”
The five guys for ID Parade, as it’s for Billy Don’t Be A Hero, are all dressed as militia men with costumes and props and everything. They’re not pirates, but it’s still funny.
Mark is so desperate to get out of this episode that he thanks everyone very quickly, mumbles his sign off and darts off stage.
Overall: Lighter than last show, though Cathy’s ineptitude and Boothby’s randomness kept this from being a complete waste. Cathy gave a ton of crazy stuff, and was a lot funnier than her first time out. Boothby had a ton of really nice jokes and moments. Craig didn’t say much, and Spoony, while he picked up toward the end, wasn’t as vocal as Boothby.
