Double Booking

Television (Full Length) – 1998

Okay we have two fugitives on the loose alright. They're on foot, so they can't have got far, Well, unless they took a taxi...or a bus.
– Murray (Geoffrey Dolan) outlines the mission to find Brett and Jane
We broke the sacred code mate: no women. We broke it — God punished us.
– A worse for wear Neville (Mark Ferguson) on loosing the fiancé on his stag night
Don't you want to find out if whatever this is is real?
– Brett (Kevin Smith) to Jane (Theresa Healey)
I've still got a huge soft spot for this little blip on the screen on New Zealand television ... I still reckon there was a bloody good series that could have followed this pilot that wasn't a pilot.
– Writer James Griffin, in his backgrounder on Double Booking
The only women Brett wants to see tonight are naked ones with tassels!
– Neville (Mark Ferguson) introduces himself to the women at their hen's night
We had a bunch of comedians sit round our dining room table for a couple of days along the way (most of them were in the show). They threw in gags, and then I did the mahi in actually writing the script.
– Writer James Griffin
