Rab C. Nesbitt is lowlife scum (and proud of it) in Glasgow, Scotland who spends his time drinking in his local and speaking to the camera about the state of society as he sees it.
Although she is a regular character, Barbara Rafferty's Ella Cotter didn't appear in the pilot or the first two episodes of Series One even though her character was referenced a number of times. Over all Rafferty wasn't part of 15 of the 65 Nesbitt ... ...
And now for the lottery numbers - which are, funnily enough, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, and the bonus number 13.
Rab C. Nesbitt: What? I chose 26, but it's 7, 8, 9, 12!
Rab C. Nesbitt: Ah, love!
Rab C. Nesbitt: You, you are the hand that bought the ticket, I'll give ya...
Rab's age is somewhat inconsistent. In the original script of the episode 'Rat' ( made in 1990 ), he gives his age as 39. In 'Country' from series two ( 1992 ) he gives his age as 45, in 'Pie' and 'Affair' from series five ( 1996 ) he says he is 44 whilst in 'New' from series seven ( 1998 ) and 'Bug' from series eight ( 1999 ) his age is given as 45 again. In the 2010 episode 'Bottle', he gives his age as 58.
At the end of every episode, we see a television with Rab on it. He rambles about something, but we cannot hear due to the music. As the credits end, Rab leaves his chair and shouts "Beat it!"
