I've seen the two '80s outings umpteen times over the years and could never tire of watching 'em. Gloriously un-PC TV and special mention must also go to Bill Paterson and the late James Booth as crafty criminals in the above entry. Great performances from these two renowned thespians.[QUOTE]
Ali Fraser and Kenny Aimes are the names of the characters of the above two. I love the first two series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet and have seen both far too many times for my own good. It's hard to seperate the two because the writing is superb in both and they still had the full cast of characters. IMO they are the UK TV highlight of the '80s. So many funny scenes and characters, but it goes beyond that, every part of the series had been polished to perfection.
One of my favourite scenes is when Kenny Aimes gets Vicki (Ali Fraser's girlfriend) to have lunch with him and they are reading the menus. Vicki says, "Rape!?! Well, I knew these Spanish were forward, but that's a bit strong, isn't it? To which Kenny replies,"No, Vicki, that's Rape'(E with a hyphon). It's spanish for monkfish!
