Eddy – ‘Patsy used to out with Keith Moon, sweetie.’
Patsy – ‘Sort of. You know I woke up underneath him in a hotel bedroom once.’
Eddy – ‘Yeah… That was going-steady in the sixties.’
Darling! Sweetie! Your life is incomplete until you see the 1992 BBC comedy television series, Absolutely Fabulous. In this over-the-top comedy, best friends Edina (left) and Patsy (right), two prominent figures in the fashion industry, and products of the Swingin’ Sixties, reminisce about the good ol’ days, drink, smoke, and cause trouble through their extreme selfishness. They each have unique style, Edina wearing whatever is trendy at that second with an obsession with Lacroix, whereas Patsy wears chic skirt suits complete with alcohol in one hand and a cigarette in the other. Check out their most memorable quotes below, some vintage outfits I think they would be into today, as well as a video featuring some of their greatest moments.
Edina – ‘Inside of me, sweetie, inside of me, there is a thin person just screaming to get out.’
Mother – ‘Just the one, dear?’
Patsy – ‘One snap of my fingers and I can raise hemlines so high the whole world’s your gynaecologist.’
You have to watch full episodes to capture their amazing humour, but here are a few memorable clips to let you know what you’re getting into.
