Inbetweeners fans come together and decide on what's the best ever line from the show
| Last updated
During its short but sweet three-season run, the show spawned countless iconic moments, which are still widely quoted among fans more than a decade after the Channel 4 series concluded.
To try and find an all-time winner, u/Whosentyounow kicked off a thread on Reddit, asking: “What is your favourite ever line/scene from The Inbetweeners?”
They went on to reveal their own ‘personal favourite’.
Neil: How about this one?
Jay: Championship manager? Completed it.
Neil: But you can’t complete it.
Jay: Err, I know. But I got so good at it they offered me in a role in the England set-up.
Neil: Did they?
Jay: I took Woking from the Conference to the Champions League in 6 seasons, that kind of stuff doesn’t go unnoticed.
One person went for the time when the lads found themselves stuck on a boat while on a field trip to the Dorset coast and reeled in a huge fish:
Jay: I’m not eating that, it’s come out the f**king sea.
Praising their choice, someone else commented: “This one is seriously underrated.”
Another went for a much more obvious – but equally as amusing – moment, writing in the thread: “Simply ‘Bus W**kers’ because I do this when my teenage son is driving me back from the pub. He cringes and is terrified.
“It is how a nicely drunk dad should behave IMO. Revenge for all the times I had to pick him up drunk at parties or stuck with no way home from town.
“I even shout it at the cows.”
Someone else piped up, adding: “Cow w**kers!”
But the winner – as declared by the post’s 1,800 upvotes – was this tender exchange between Simon and Jay:
Simon: No-one brings a bag of s**t to a pub.
Jay: Your dad does.
Simon: Does he?
Jay: Yeah. Your mum.
“Thread over,” one person commented.
Another said: “It's the nonchalance that Jay oozes with this one.”
One fan cheated slightly by putting forward two suggestions – in turn racking up a respectable 1,100 upvotes to secure them a joint runner-up spot:
Tara: Her dad just died last month.
Will: It’s not really relevant is it?
They also shared:
Jay: When I say I’m gonna deliver, I f**king deliver.
Will: Like a postman with Tourette’s.
Someone else agreed that the first was a strong choice, writing: “’It's not really relevant is it?’ is such a classic because he's actually right, but it still feels so wrong and because of that it makes you cringe even harder.”
Another said: “The amount of times I think in an argument ‘not really relevant though is it?’ Is too high.”
Inevitably, there were also a number of honourable mentions for chronically disgruntled teacher Mr Gilbert.
"Most of Mr Gilbert's appearances," one person said, adding examples of: "'Well, you assumed wrong', 'you're a virgin, aren't you McKenzie', the malice when he tells Will to report to the garage... Actually the malice behind most of what he says."
