Quotes

Sam: I sincerely wish I wasn't in my boxers right now.
Deborah: Boxer briefs. And like clunky exposition, they leave very little to the imagination.

Keeley: So where do you think her father is right now?
Roy: In the drawer of a funeral home.
Keeley: No. I mean, like, spiritually.
Roy: In the drawer of a funeral home.

Ted: You know, growing up, I used to believe that if you did good things, you went to heaven. You did bad things, you went to hell. Nowadays, I know we all just do both. So wherever he is, I hope he's happy.
Higgins: I like to imagine a heaven where animals are in charge, and humans are the pets. I'd like to spend eternity curled up in front of a fire at Cindy Clawford's feet.
Nathan: I'd like to be reincarnated as a tiger... and then ravage anyone who looked at me wrong.

Coach Beard: You know, if you weigh a person's body right after death, it's 21.3 grams lighter, and some say that's the weight of the soul.
Roy: Whoever figured that out clearly weighed someone, murdered them, then weighed them again. You live, you die, you're done. Good night.
(Roy leaves)
Keeley: He's on his period.

Isaac: Oi, so we're all going to this funeral as a team. So that means ties, shirts... and no trainers.
Zoreaux: What if they're, like, really nice Yeezys?
Isaac: What color?
Zoreaux: Bright red.
(Isaac stares at him)
Zoreaux: Okay, I'll wear some dress shoes.

Dani: Where do you get dress shoes?
Colin: I don't have time to stand in line at midnight and wait till morning to buy new shoes.
Jamie: You don't have to do that for shoes like these, mate. Nobody wants them.

Keeley: Roy, if you die, do you want to be buried or cremated? Like, if you were hit by a bus today, what do I do?
Roy: Go after the bus driver and make him pay for what he did to me. Avenge me, Keeley. Avenge me!

Keeley: I found this company, and they bury you in a biodegradable sack. So when your body decomposes, it fertilizes the seeds of a fruit tree. That's what I want. Because then you and all the people that love me can eat the fruit from my tree.
Roy: That is f*cking mental.
Keeley: Coming from the guy that wants me to ruin a bus driver's life just 'cause he killed you swerving to avoid a child.
Roy: I didn't know about the f*cking child.
Keeley: I just like the idea that my death can nourish people.
Roy: With fruit made from your rotting corpse? I wouldn't eat that.
Keeley: But you'll eat a kebab that you find a hair in?
Roy: It's fine if you know who the hair is from. That's part of the deal. He's a lovely bloke.

Deborah: What a chubby baby!
(baby cries)
Rebecca: Congratulations, Mother. You've just fat-shamed a baby to tears.

Roy: Cheer up, Keeley. It's a funeral.

Dani: I hate dress shoes so much, Jamie.
Jamie: I know, muchacho. 'Cause remember, they ain't made for people like us. They're made for sheep. They're made for Muggles. They're made for twats.
Dani: When I get home, I will set them on fire, and their memory will burn in hell.
Jamie: Jesus, Dani.
Dani: Jesus has no place in the conversation of these damn shoes.

Ted: You want something to drink? A cup of tea or something?
Dr. Sharon: No, thank you. I hate tea. Tastes like a wet paper bag.

Coach Beard: I don't think I've ever been in a properly... Anglican house of worship before, and... it makes me miss you, and I just wish you were here.
Jane: Me too. I love funerals. Is it an open casket?
Coach Beard: God, I hope so.

Sassy: So, Stinky. Who are you secretly shagging?
Rebecca: What?
Keeley: Let's skip the part where you pretend you're not, yeah?
Rebecca: What are you even talking about?
Keeley: How about the bullshit text after the date, the fact I have not seen you outside of work for two weeks, and that even though today is your father's funeral, you are glowing like a girl that just got properly plowed.

Keeley: We're just trying to figure out who Rebecca is shagging.
Deborah: Oh, I know. And it's good.
Rebecca: Mother.
Sassy: Hang on. Hang on. Okay, let's play 20 questions.
Keeley: Yes! Yes.
Nora: Oh, my... this is thrilling.
Sassy: Is he tall?
Rebecca: Yes.
Keeley: Is it Sam?
Rebecca: (suprised) How the f*ck did you know that?

Ted: When I was in fifth or sixth grade, there was this book called Johnny Tremain, and our homework for, like, a month was to read this book. At the end of the month, I hadn't read a lick of it, you know. And we had a test, big test, like, the next day. And the night before, I was anxious as all heck, and I couldn't sleep, and my dad starts getting after me about that. And I start crying. And he's like, "Whoa, buddy. What's wrong? What's wrong?" And I tell him what's up. And he says, "Hey, don't worry about it, okay. Just go up to your room, lay your head on your pillow and think about something you're looking forward to." So that's what I did. Next morning, I wake up, and he says, "Hey, you ain't gonna ride your bike to school. I'm gonna drive you." And I'm like, "All right." And on the way to school, he talks me through the entire book, like it's a bedtime story or something. Because he stayed up all night, the whole night, reading the whole damn thing, 'cause he didn't want his little boy stressed out over some stupid, silly test. And I ended up getting an A. Boom. He was a good dad. And I don't think he knew that.

Rebecca: I don't really know what to say. My father... was... (begins to recite song lyrics) We're no strangers to love. You know the rules... And so do I. A full commitment's what I'm thinking of. You wouldn't get this From any other guy. I... just want to tell you how I'm feeling. Try to make you understand. Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry. Never gonna say...
Ted: Never gonna say goodbye. Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
All: Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry. Never gonna say goodbye. Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
Rebecca: Never gonna give, never gonna give...
All: Give you up.
Rebecca: Never gonna give, never gonna give...
All: Give you up.
Rebecca: Thank you.

Dani: (wearing Rebecca's slippers) Rebecca, muchisimas gracias. I can feel my toes again. I am so happy we wear the same size.
Rebecca: Good. Me too. You keep those.
Dani: Your generosity knows no boundaries.

Jamie: (to Keeley) Listen, Keeley. I know that you're with Roy and that you're happy, but today's made me realize that I'd hate myself if I didn't say... I didn't just come back to Richmond to get away from my dad. I also came back 'cause of you. I finally think that I'm becoming the best version of myself, the kind of man that you always knew that I could be. And I know that this is a mad, shitty thing to do, but... I love you, Keeley.

Roy: (to Keeley) Listen, I was a prick today, making dumb f*cking jokes. It's, just, death makes me uncomfortable 'cause when my granddad died, I spent every single night for a whole year praying that I could just talk to him just once, or see him just one more time like he was Obi-Wan Kenobi or some sh1t. And I got f*ck all. But it did make me realize, we only got this one life, and I don't wanna waste a second of it. I love you, Keeley.

Ted: I know I only got to meet Mr. Welton that one time, but, well, the fact that a fella his age could still do every move from Donald O'Connor's big old dance scene from Singin' in the Rain, it just gave me a lot of hope for getting older, you know.

Rebecca: (while watching a Rick Astley video) I think you had a bit of a thing for Rick Astley, Mother.
Deborah: Well, maybe I did. But that's not him, is it?
Rebecca: Yeah, of course it is.
Deborah: No, I thought he was Black. That's Rick Astley?
Rebecca: Yes.

Music

"I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Badd (Plays at beginning, while Sam and Rebecca are in bed)

"Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley (Played by Rebecca's mother at home. Later, it is sung at the funeral, and then Rebecca and her mother watch the video at home.)

"1991" by Marcus Mumford, Tom Howe (Plays while Ted and Rebecca talk about their fathers)

"I Remember" by Molly Drake (End music)

Notes and Trivia

The title is a reference to the 1994 movie "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

When Roy tells Keeley to "Avenge me!" in the case of his death, he is referencing a scene in the 1984 film "Red Dawn." (Youtube)

In S02E5 Rainbow, Ted says, "I think a fella should only take as long as the tune 'Easy Lover' by Phil Collins and Philip Bailey to get dressed in the morning." In this episode we see he was not joking as he is shown listening to "Easy Lover" while dressing for the funeral.

Note, you can see Jane on Facetime singing along to "Amazing Grace."

When Ted says, "the fact that a fella his age could still do every move from Donald O'Connor's big old dance scene from Singin' in the Rain, it just gave me a lot of hope for getting older," he is referring to this classic scene.

When Rupert and Bex are leaving the church, people wonder where is the baby? However, if you notice, when they arrive to the funeral there is a nondescript woman with a pram just behind them. The same woman is sitting next to Rupert at the funeral, and is in the background when they leave. Clearly, they have brought a nanny.

Locations

Details about common filming locations such as The Crown and Anchor Pub, The Dog Pound Stadium and The Richmond Greyhounds practise field can be found here.

Most interior and exterior church scenes were filmed at St. Andrew's Kingsbury, 28 Old Church Ln, St Andrews Rd, London. (Google Maps)

The scene where Coach Beard Facetimes Jane in front of stained glass windows, and scenes where Rebecca, Deborah and others wait for the funeral in a library, were filmed at Strawberry Hill House, 268 Waldegrave Rd, Twickenham. Note, this location is nowhere near the location where the other church scenes were filmed.
