Am doing a round on game shows this week, so obviously I had to have a question about the marvellous Bob Monkhouse, funnyman and horror film buff extraordinaire. When I was trying to decide what to ask, I came across a list of notable quotes (yes, all right, on wikipedia), and these are some of my favourites:

"They laughed when I said I was going to be a comedian. They're not laughing now."
"Personally, I don't think there's intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?"
"I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my father. Not screaming and terrified like his passengers."
"Growing old is compulsory - growing up is optional."
"I came home and found that my son (wife) was taking drugs - my very best ones too!"
"I'm not afraid of death. The only problem is that you're so bloody stiff the next day."
"You'll be glad to hear, I can still enjoy sex at 74. I live at number 76 - it's no distance."
"I can remember when safe sex meant a padded headboard."
On his visits to Princess Grace Hospital for treatment after being diagnosed with prostate cancer--"I've been in and out of Princess Grace more often than Prince Rainier."
"With my wife it was sex, sex, sex... Yes, three times in 35 years."
"The doctor said have you heard of faecal impaction? I said, I think I saw that with Glenn Close" Joking about his cancer battle on Parkinson in 2003.

BTW, if anyone wants to contribute quiz rounds I'll be v grateful, but send them non-publicly please. The last lot I got from you guys were great :) I need ten questions around a theme, and I'm particularly bad at sport ones...
