Oh, this is a good question.

I too liked the Drooping Derriere. And the lady returning the wig - Mrs Slocombe mistakes her real hair for the wig.

Oh, and the couple (not) buying the blue evening dress in "No Sale".

I haven't picked any Humphries ones because I only really like his earlier ones, the ones that show off his crafty salesmanship. The ones like "little Roger", that spotlight his gayness, make me cringe.

The "Drooping Derrière" is one of my favorites as is the "Cushy Job" guy from "Cold Store". He's bold as brass to Peacock but genial when faced with Brahms.

Yep. Drooping Derriere was a great one. She played that character up very well.

I enjoy watching the scene with the made-to-measure suit/undetectable hairpiece customer.

I liked Mr. Grainger as the Glove Customer.

Liked Reg Dixon too, fat face, piggy eyes, pimple on the nose and all.

Hillary Pritchard buying a hat.

Carol Cleaveland and her bratty kid.

Jan Holden exchanging stockings.

I second all of the above, and add Anita Richardson coming out of the fitting room to ask if there were any bras cut a bit lower.

Years ago, when Carol and I were on speaking terms (sadly no longer the case), I asked her if she had any recollections of taping her AYBS? episode. She said she'd been ill with food poisoning at the time: just beforehand, she'd eaten something in a canteen that had disagreed with her.

I replied that I was sorry to hear it, but after all the jokes made on AYBS? about getting sick from eating canteen food, it was a case of art imitating life.

I didn't think about Mr. Grainger. He made a great customer!

I helped run her unofficial website, "The Castle Cleveland," from approximately 1995 through 2003, when she set up her own site.

And speaking of Carol, here's a recently-discovered addition (most likely NSFW) to her filmography. "Wink wink, nudge nudge" indeed!
