After reading a headline suggesting AbFab's return to television, I audibly gasped with joy. Could it be true? Have I been freed from the monotony of my Absolutely Fabulous collector's box set? Will there be new cocaine-addled shenanigans from Patsy and Edina? The answer to all these questions is yes. Actresses Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are currently filming three new episodes of the beloved sitcom, which will return to BBC1 in the fall.
In honor of this momentous occasion I offer up some of the best Absolutely Fabulous quotes of all time. Enjoy.
Edina: Patsy hasn't eaten since 1974.
Patsy: A crisp, darling. A crisp.
Saffie: My life just flashed before my eyes.
Edina: What was it like? A Bergman film without the jokes?
Edina: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.
Patsy: The last mosquito that bit me had to check into the Betty Ford clinic.
Patsy: Eddy, what are you wearing?
Edina: It's LaCroix.
Patsy: Well, then it's fabulous.
