Iain: When I was ten I wanted to be taller (a vet).
Hacker: To answer your question about me, it was brilliant! Iain almost didn't show up and I very nearly had to do it all on my own. Because I am professional.
Iain: I am not.

Iain: Yes! Yes. That was originally a show with us both in it, but I've been done over by Jedward.

Iain: It'd be called "HACKER... and Iain"

Hacker: Who offered him... the chance of a lifetime!
Iain: I didn't take it, I will never forget that day.
Hacker: The end.

Hiya Iain & Hacker, my questions are Iain - why are us obsessed with ur hair?

Iain: Thanks Hacks.
Hacker: Not you!! I meant Sue's lovely golden locks! Oh, Sue. Can I replace Tuffers on Question of Sport? Please. Thank you.
Hacker, whats your favourite meat produce? - PeachNoseyStarfish
Hacker: Hello, you! I do like meat produce, but I will digress for a bit. When I was young, I once walked by a lake. And I peered into the lake. And I notice sommat.
Iain: A monkey!
Hacker: Not a monkey Iain. It was my reflection, my handsome reflection. As I stared into my own 2D watery eyes, I began to dream of yesteryear, and my thoughts wandered to freshly mown grass... What was the question again?
Iain: His favourite is meat paste.
Hacker: Oh yeeeeeeeeahhhhhh!
Hacker, Do Ian's feet smell?? Ian, If you had to describe your self as one character from confrintation street who would it be? - BlueZingyHamster
Hacker: Oh his feet do smell, they smell of scampi and chips!
Iain: I would describe myself as... actually, this has reminded me of an anecdote. Once, when I was a little girl, I was playing hopscotch with my good friend James which is odd, because you don't need to roll a dice in hopscotch. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the man got covered in flan.
Hacker: That wasn't the question!
Iain: I would play Elsie Hateraisin.
What is your favourite dance move? - StarstoneSmileyButterfly
Iain: Zumba! All of it.

Hacker: Yes, Iain is holding me back - he stands on my tail.
Iain: I am the brains behind the operation.
Hacker: You can't even play Operation.
Iain: On the topic of operation, there was once a small pelican...
Hacker: That was not the question, Iain! How many times?
Iain: Get off my leg!
Hacker: It's like a leg of lamb.
If you could get away from each other for a day what would you do - JetCupcakeFrog
Hacker: I'm off!!
Iain: Great idea, let's go!
Hacker: I would stay at work and do a webchat all day. My lovely fans deserve to hear my ramblings.
Iain: I've got a load of meat paste back at the flat!
Hacker: Right fans, I'm off. I've got meat paste awaiting me. Lay it up nice and thick on a piece of bread.
Iain: Stay in school, do all your homework, and don't forget to watch all your favourite documentries on the iPlayer.
Hacker: That's catchy, Iain.
Iain: That's why I'm as successful as I am.
