Sam & Gene (UK) Appreciation #1 - They're like Starsky & Hutch, but better!

I really enjoyed the Sam & Gene dynamic on the show, they made a great team (when they were both up for it, at least.... :lol: )

Sam: "Okay. Alright. Surprise me. What year is it supposed to be?"
Gene: "Word in your shell-like, pal."
(He grabs Sam by the collar and hauls him into the little office. He slams him against a filing cabinet. Sam throws his hands off him.)
Sam: "Big mistake."
Gene: "Yeah? What about this?"
(He punches Sam in the stomach. Behind them, the rest of the office watches, laughing and enjoying the theatre. Gene slams Sam against the cabinet again.)
Gene: "They reckon you’ve got concussion. But I couldn’t give a tart’s furry cup if half your brains are falling out. Don’t ever waltz into my kingdom acting King of the Jungle."
Sam: "Who the hell are you?"
Gene: "Gene Hunt, your DCI, and it’s 1973. Almost dinner time. I’m ‘avin’ ‘oops."
Season 1 Episode 1
Gene: "I love this city. Its mess. Its noise. Prozzies. Drunks. Stray dogs, little old men."
Sam: "Buttered crumpets for tea."
Gene: "You’re a right smart Alec and all, not squeaky clean, nor’s this place. Rest of this country couldn’t give a threepenny bit about this town. The orphans take whoever they can get to look after them. That’s me."
Sam: "So you want me out now."
Gene: "Are you joking? You got to put this right."
Sam: "I only know one way to police."
Gene: "So do I. She’s not giving up and nor should you."
Season 1 Episode 2
Gene: "My friend is going to ask you some questions. Personally I hope you don’t answer them because I want you to die in here and end up inside a pork pie."
Gene: "How did you know Red Rum was gonna win the national?"
Sam: "Just a hunch."
Gene: "You didn’t have any… inside information? Little bird in the racing fraternity?"
Sam: "I wouldn’t do that, would I?"
Gene: "Well, I didn’t think you’d lock a murder suspect in a giant fridge."
Sam: "He wouldn’t answer my question."
Gene: "I’ve got a feeling he will."
Sam: "How’s that little animal, in your stomach?"
Gene: "Do you know, I do believe he’s sleeping."
Season 1 Episode 4
Gene: "Are you on strike? Common, hands off your ding-a-ling, we’ve had another shout."
Sam: "Well seeing as you’ve just broke my door down, I take it, it’s big."
Gene: "As Shelley Winters’ arse."
Season 2 Episode 1
Gene: "Oh you made it then? ‘Bout bloody time!"
Sam: "As for you, I can just about handle you. Driving up like a pissed up crack head and treating women like bean bags! But I’m gonna say this once, and once only Gene, stay out of Camberwick Green!"
Season 2 Episode 5
Sam: "Why are we running?"
Season 2 Episode 7
Gene: "I didn’t do it, Sam. Neither of them. I swear to you I did not kill those men."
Sam: "Why should I believe you?"
Gene: "Because you trust me! Like I trust you."
Season 2 Episode 7

Ooooh, add me please :flowers:

The banner is cracking me up :lmao: I don't think I've seen those pics before.

I love to watch their relationship grow and develop (or shall I call it friendship?), anyhow - as the show progresses you can just feel how both of them pick up things from the other and how they learn to rely and trust each other.

Chrissy 08-09-2008 03:56 AM

Please add me. :flowers:

And I :love: the title and the banner. :rotfl:

indigo sunrise 08-12-2008 07:06 AM

Added you both! :D

:lol: glad you like the title, I couldn't really think of much and that was the first thing that came to mind :lmao:

Chrissy 08-12-2008 07:53 AM

It was a really good thing! :lmao:

indigo sunrise 08-12-2008 08:43 AM

great :lol:

I don't ship them romantically, but...

Sometimes they do make it hard not to see the slash :lmao:

Chrissy 08-13-2008 03:33 AM

I normally really do not like slash.

But yeah, these two.... hmmmmm :lol:

indigo sunrise 08-13-2008 04:56 AM

and the fact that Gene would be COMPLETELY freaked out by the very idea makes it even funnier :lmao:

Oh my, just to imagine his reaction if somebody would tell him that. :lmao:

Lost in Translation 08-13-2008 09:47 AM

Yeah, definitely don't see the slashiness, but their partnership rocks. :D

Little 'Un 09-02-2008 08:25 AM

Could I be added please? :blush:

I love them as a duo, but I don't like the idea of slash. I think poor Gene would have a heart attack at the very thought :P

Devil's Cry 09-13-2008 06:11 PM

They're awesome :nod: :D


Gene Hunt: [To Sam] Where are you today, then? Here, or Planet of the Clangers?

Add me, please :)

Nad 09-26-2008 12:33 PM

Welcome :wave: I'm sure Val or one of the mods will add you ASAP.

They sure came a long way from being constantly at odds with each other to developing respect and a friendship.

Do you guys have a fave Sam/Gene scene? :look:
