[show]Known for being a perfectionist, Ronnie Barker monitored David Jason's raspberry's carefully for volume, tone and duration whenever they did The Phantom Raspberry Blower sketch; Barker directed Jason in a sound-booth doing a raspberry version of the 1812 Overture. Jason joked in his autobiography that he would gladly re-stage it at the Royal Albert Hall, and considered "making farting noises into a microphone" one of the most profound jobs he's ever done for the BBC, and he's proud of his contribution to "that little moment of comic history". Barker and Jason became close friends, and Jason believed Barker very wise, and if he thought something was OK, that was good enough.
- When describing Ronnie Barker's death in his autobiography, David Jason said "Goodnight from him", alluding to Barker's signature line on the show.
- The swear box sketch was voted as "One of The Two Ronnie's funniest sketches."
