What's that old saying? 'When a man is tired of Peep Show he is tired of life.' You know the one, it was Samuel Johnson or George Orwell, or Orson Welles, or someone like that who said it.

Fortunately, no one is tired of Peep Show, because whether you're man, woman, child or goat, we as Brits love seeing other people stuck in awkward moments. Go on admit it, you secretly love watching others misjudge a handshake or linger behind a social circle, desperately longing to break in: 'Accept me!' Well Peep Show is the television equivalent of that.

So with last night's triumphant return of the cult sitcom, we've compiled a list of the most awkward and amusing Peep Show lines and moments.
