^^^ She should've said "dearly", but how do you know she's not referring to her audience as her beloved "dear" audience?

Another one of my GC favourites is the rare and sought-after "that's WILD!" after a mat-missing smash.

Say the following very up-tempo, with a hint of sibilance, volume maybe only 2 notches above a whisper, and like the words are running to catch a train that's already leaving the station; throw in a slight tone of misplaced elation, and you get...

This thread is still going!?!
Will it soon rival the Reiko thread in posts?
It's a shame that Ms. Clark hasn't honoured us with a comment. But of course, what would she say? We've already listed every phrase she has ever uttered!
(Hmmm.... maybe there is a market for a "Tickle-Me Gill" doll this Christmas. Poke it in the tummy and you hear "My word! Would you believe it!")

Here's a new one I've been noticing. Or I just haven't been watching her enough.
When it's 20-20 in a game
"Extra points until there's a clear two point margin/advantage"

I was wondering if we should open some other threads for other commentators (Morten, Paul-Erik Hoyer, Ian Wright etc), but I can summarise the one for Darren Hall right here:

The colourful, but not universally praised, John Burgess has a thread of his own, already.
I do recall the gentlemen doing the English commentary for the WC2007 (LD v SDK) having some good lines:
eg. "Ahh, we are now being treated to such a rich variety of stroke-play" - who was that commentator?

Not only did they get it back, they got it back with interest!

Morten has lately started to come out with "dare to win". Don't know if it's a maxim of his from his coaching days, but I bet Gill nicks it for her own uses.
I was amused by "big, strong lad" and "thunders the shuttle down" in relation to Zheng Bo (but I doubt we'll ever hear those again, will we...).

IN recognition of which...
And for your unswerving loyalty, unabashed enthusiasm, and undiminished admiration for the “Voice of Badminton” we are proud to honour you with the Highest Award in the form of this badge of honour. The Honour roll doth comprise (Editor’s Note: up to the present, but not limited to)
drew tze en
-and we do include our acknowledged closet admirers:
In recognition of which, the all-above-mentioned, immediately or posthumously as may the case be, stand up to receive the badge of honour awarded to you.
You may reproduce this badge as a “car sticker” or a “cuff-link” but it will also make a rather attractive pin-badge to add to any collection on your khaki satchel or carpetbag. The muted colours and two-tone effect that brings “The Famous Face” into focus in relief makes this badge of honour a candidate for “collector’s item.” You must guard this possession jealously, as it is not given lightly.
The “Voice of Badminton” will be comforted to know that the above Honours List will be refreshed regularly, and can fully expect the list to reach the figure of around 1.9 billion within a year.

cobalt, I salute your dedication to the cause. As such, you will be awarded an MBE (Mad-Bad Ensign) effective immediately.

I'd rather be on cobalt's honour roll... madbad's award doesn't have a nice sticker

Seriously I wish GC would drop in right now and respond to this thread, I'm sure she'd get a good laugh out of reading this thread =). To be honest though it's actually weird to hear anyone else other than her now when I watch badminton.

Boys boys.. PLEASE DUN FIGHT.
All those on the honour-roll, will get a kiss and/or hug from The Voice herself ok?
Please form an orderly queue.

We should put that badge on a big flag, spray a few of Gill's choicest catchphrases around it, and take it to the All England next year. I bet the camera would find it on crowd shots, and if the BC URL shows up, we could get her in here.
