“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible” 

It’s the end of series 4 and love is in the air in this bumper length show as the team discuss Rob Reiner’s romantic comedy ‘When Harry Met Sally…’ As Rachael and Paul tussle with the distinction between rom-coms and chick-flicks, Andy slightly flusters the rest of the team by declaring his love for them, before unleashing a five minute diatribe on the state of the modern romantic comedy. Paul reminisces about the video shop at the end of his street, Rachael tries to define what makes Meg Ryan so damn captivating and Andy comes up with an analogy for why the famous orgasm scene works so well that might just get the whole team banned from further broadcasting. Rachael offers a touching tribute to the film that sparked her own lifelong love affair with jazz while Paul tries to crib notes from Andy’s adoring stories about his wife and, despite claiming to be little more than an awkward boy at heart, shares his own love for making his wife laugh.

But it’s not all flowers and chocolates, as elsewhere Rachael looks at the disappointment that can result from letting rom-coms set your romantic expectations and Andy takes a look at one-line wonders, our cinematic surrogates who somehow manage to bag the best lines.

This week’s scale: I’ll have what she’s having or a wagon-wheel coffee table
