Without a doubt some of the best news of 2019, James Corden took to social media today to announce that Gavin and Stacey will be returning with a long-awaited Christmas special!
Gavin and Stacey Quotes and Moments
The cosy British sitcom is one of our favourite feel-good shows, and to celebrate its upcoming return, we thought we’d take a look back at 15 memorable Gavin and Stacey quotes and hilarious moments.
1) “I have had some wines”
From her witty one-liners to bickering with Mick, Pam is one of the best characters in Gavin and Stacey. And when it comes to drinking wine, we can definitely relate. She wasn’t drunk, drunk. Just had some wines…
2) The OG Carpool Karaoke
Long before The Late Late Show brought the world carpool karaoke, James Corden took to the road as Smithy to belt out one of our favourite Christmas songs. This memorable Gavin and Stacey moment never fails to put a smile on our faces. Fingers crossed the next Gavin and Stacey Christmas special is just as good!
3) The Indian Takeway Dilemma
A scene that perfectly captures a British night in, we’ll never get tired of Smithy’s frustrations while ordering an Indian takeaway. Chicken bhuana, lamb bhuana, prawn bhuana, mushroom rice, bag of chips, keema naan and nine poppadums…
“What is it about a group of people orderin’ an Indian or Chinese, that it’s somehow unexpectable to eat your own food that you order yourself?”.
4) Islands in the Stream
A scene that needs little introduction, never forget this iconic performance of Islands in the Stream. Is there a better duo than Nessa and Bryn? We don’t think so.
5) Mick’s Big TV appearance
A hilarious anti-climax and one of our favourite Gavin and Stacey quotes is from Mick’s appearance on TV. The Shipmans had popped open a bottle and invited round the neighbours for the big occasion…but it wasn’t quite what they’d been hoping for.
“It’s the last thing you expect to find when you come to work in the morning.”
6) Bryn Singing James Blunt
Goodbye my lover, goodbye my friend…
7) Nessa as Father Christmas
Nessa as Father Christmas is another of our favourite Gavin and Stacey quotes and moments. Quick to shatter any dreams of luxury Christmas gifts, we’re sure the children of Barry are still recovering now.
“Oh. Oh. Oh.”
8) Smithy Being Dramatic
It’s safe to say that when it comes to drama, Smithy is the expert. From being heartbroken by Gavin’s honeymoon, to this memorable moment, Smithy was never one to look on the bright side…
9) Pam Getting Caught Out
After a panicking Pam pretended she was vegetarian, she found the lie very hard to keep up. One of our favourite Gavin and Stacey moments is Pam getting caught eating ham…to nobody’s surprise!
10) Smithy’s Big Entrance
Always one to make an entrance, another of the most memorable Gavin and Stacey moments is Smithy’s big entrance with his football chant. So good that even Mick and Pam join in!
11) Nessa and Smithy’s ‘Moment’
The unconventional love story of Nessa and Smithy is something we’re hoping will feature in this year’s Gavin and Stacey Christmas special. This adorably awkward ‘moment’ is one of our favourite scenes, and a testament to just how well James Corden and Ruth work together.
12) Smithy’s Wedding ‘Toast’
One of the best (and worst) wedding speeches to ever grace our TV screens. “I’d like to raise a toast“…*weeps on table*
13) Bryn’s Holiday T-Shirt
A prime example of why Uncle Bryn is so lovable. This well-rehearsed joke had “mixed reviews”.
14) Gavin Surprising Stacey
Back to where it all began with this heartwarming scene from the first episode of Gavin and Stacey. If Gavin hadn’t followed Stacey all the way back to Barry, where would we be now?
15) Pam Loving the Drama
Another relatable Pam moment and one of the most quoted Gavin and Stacey quotes. It’s safe to say that we’re this excited for the upcoming Gavin and Stacey Christmas special!
