Zoe on Ian tech-speak: "Just pretend we know what he's talking about!"
Ian on Lisa wearing boots to train in: "I don't like them, they're pink. I don't like the colour."
Anton on Arry's QS, trying to please the judges: "We're working on the posture and not bothering with any steps ."
Jerry, on Anton's army of female fans: "I felt like an accessory. I was his feather boa constrictor. It's like the days with the Stones, I had to mark my territory."
Brendleton role reversal - Victoria bench pressing Brendan outside TV Centre. The Zoe making him cycle in a gold, sequinned helmet, him collapsing on the floor and her jumping on him to administer the kiss of life!
"Her singing is atrocious but it keeps me in sync." Michael on Natalie's new found method of helping him get it.

Zoe, on Flouvia's salsa: "Dionne, can anyone recreate the magic of Swayze and Grey?"
Dionne *beat* "No."
Rufus on Richin's cha cha: "If you looked at his shirt and crossed your eyes slightly and imagined looking through it, you could see a sail boat."
Dionne Warwick giggling at every Rufus Hound joke.
Zoe asking Dionne about Colin: "He's hot!" Zoe: "I'll tell him." Dionne: "So will I."
