|Who would "put their head where some horrid girly's bottom's been?"||'The Young Ones'
Vyvyan. Though I'm sure Mike would, due to his constant mention of being the one that gets all the girls, Vyv says he would in 'Summer Holiday' when they are about to rob the bank with water pistols from Tesco's and dodgy sunglasses to get themselves off the streets. They were kicked out by Jertzy after he found his rug ruined, his chair and window broken (he broke both them, of course, he came in through the window. He then heard it was a party and danced about until he smashed the chair), the TV smashed from when Vyvyan kicked it, and the fridge door exploded after Vyv put a grenade in there. It took awhile to explode, but it did at just the right (or wrong) moment.
