    Top gear - "how hard can it be?"

    Dad's Army - "they don't like it up 'em!" And the fact cpl jones is always half a step out of sync with the rest of the parade.

    The Dr Niles Crane 'seminar' jokes should get a mention I feel.

    "I have to go, I'm holding a compulsive sex seminar and I don't like to leave them alone for too long."

    "I have to go, I'm holding a identity crisis seminar, and I've already forgotten 3 of their names."

    Edit- I realise now that Frasier is not British..

    Fawlty Towers had a whole host of pseudo-catchphrases:

    The Major : "Papers arrived yet Fawlty?"
    Sybil : "Basil!"
    Manuel : "Que?"
    Various : "He's from Barcelona."
