Press Gang (TV Series 1989–1993) Poster


Paul Reynolds: Colin Mathews



  • Colin : Maybe I should just mention my extra-specially-close friends get a preferential loan rate *and* badges. I do have vacancies in my peer group...

  • Colin : I'm not following this am I?

    Frazz : Of course you are, just a long long way behind.

  • Julie : Don't take this wrong, but you behave like a real jerk.

    Colin : There's a right way to take that?

  • Colin : Can we talk Spike - man to man?

    Spike : [looks at Colin in disgust]  Man to what?

  • Colin : Ruby Grogan, Spike. Just stay away from her.

    Spike : Don't tell me, you've fallen in love again, and you haven't gotten around to telling the lady yet. Ethel Stuttgart two right?

    Colin : I'm warning you Spike, just stay away from her.

    Spike : I'm trying to! And what are you going to do if I don't?

    Colin : Spike, I don't want to get violent.

    Spike : [pushes Colin]  Violent?

    Colin : Well, rude.

    Spike : [pushes Colin again]  Rude?

    Colin : Well a bit off hand certainly.

    [Spike grabs Colin by his shirt] 

    Colin : Well more kind of reserved, you know, distantly. A kind of polite.

    Spike : So if I don't stay away from Ruby, you're gonna get polite with me?

    Colin : Yeah!

    [Spike lets go] 

    Colin : And that's just for starters!

  • Colin : ...and I mean that, Kenny. From-the-Heart City. Total Sincerityville. You're gonna be big. And I mean that. Right from the heart.

    [Pats his chest] 

    Kenny : The other side.

    Colin : What?

    Kenny : Your heart's on the other side.

    Colin : Oh right! That's what you get for practicing in the mirror.

  • Colin Matthews : I love the dictionary, Kenny. It's the only book with the words in the right order.

  • Tiddler : Colin, what does a rabbit mean to you?

    Colin Matthews : A four pack of lucky feet.

  • Colin : Preservation of animals? You mean like in the freezer?

  • Tiddler : How was Warner Edison?

    Colin : Dead.

    Kenny : What?

    Colin : He had a heart attack last Wednesday, two hours after he phoned me to come round. It was his funeral this afternoon, and they were having a sort of a gathering at his house. Do you know what I really wish?

    Tiddler : What?

    Colin : I wish that I hadn't pushed past the guy that opened the door, rushed into the house and shouted "Hi Warner, I'm a bunny-gram!". Do you have any idea what it's like to have every single rich and powerful person in town dressed in black and staring at you, while you're wearing a giant pink rabbit costume to a funeral? Excuse me, I'm just going into the toilet to whimper for a while.
