from an interview w/the Boosh
Q: So the kiss scene; I only caught the one, but have you kissed more than once?
J: It happens at the end of every episode [laughs].
N: [Laughs] That was the best part of the documentary that we used in the show.
J: I kind of wish that at the end of every episode we made out.
N: And then just said, 'Ok, see you later' [laughs].
J: Enjoy the credits.
N: I don't know, it's one of those things we thought would be funny and it was quite strange. It was sort of popular with some viewers and then it freaked quite a lot of people out. It caused quite a stir actually. It still does.
J: It breaks a lot of rules in terms of double acts.
N: It's really crossing the line, there's no way you should kiss your double act partner 'cause it's that sexual tension that keeps you going.
J: And what happens when you lose that?
N: We did actually think about doing a whole episode where we kiss then we weren't funny anymore.
J: We thought of an idea where we went to a bar that served us this magic punch that made us get really erotic and we woke up the next day in bed and thought we made love. So we thought that would be a quite good episode to do that, you know, sort of the awkwardness between us.

apleasantsurprise: “Amy [Poehler] was in the middle of some such nonsense with Seth Myers across the table, and she did something vulgar as a joke. I can’t remember what it was exactly, except it was dirty and loud and ‘unladylike.’ Jimmy Fallon, who was arguably the star of the show at the time, turned to her…
