Today I was watching some episodes of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai (because my job requires me to do such difficult things) and really, this show is a gift that keeps on giving. So after listing down Rosesh Sarabhai‘s epic poetry, here are 10 Maya Sarabhai burns you need to use as comebacks!
Monisha Beta, yeh haila toh theek tha, but this haichi is categorically middle-class.
Jab tum kabhi kabhi ubaasi leti ho na bina mooh dhake, toh Ajanta-Ellora caves ki yaad aati hai
Maya: Good morning Sahil
Sahil: Good morning mom
Maya: Clinic jaane ke liye taiyyar?
Maya: Good morning Monisha
Monisha: Good morning mummy ji
Maya: TV dekhne ke liye taiyyar?
Sahil: Late Mr Jaspal Singh had no heir-
Monisha: HAIR?! Jaspal mama ke toh bohot saare baal the, Sahil.
Maya: Monisha, hair nahi heir! The H is silent.
Indravardan: Yeh bakwaas language hai. Jab H istemaal nahi karna toh likhte kyun hai samaj mein nahi aata!
Monisha: Bekaar mein ek alphabet waste.
Maya: Iss mein bhi bachchat, Monisha?
Sahil main ghar chod ke jaa rahi hoo – that’s sheer poetry to my ears.
‘Kameena’, ‘Haramzada’ is all so pedestrian.
PLEASE BRING THIS SHOW BACK! PLEASE! PLEASEEEEEEEEE!
