English term or phrase: as last seen in Gregory's Girl
In this article: http://bit.ly/TfCF there is a reference to a TV series which I don't quite get

Cue effusions about that darling trattoria in Lucca, those hidden della Francescas in Arezzo and enthusiastic reiterations of the word ‘bella’ ***as last seen in Gregory’s Girl***.

I don't think that in a series set in Scotland ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregory's_Girl ) they often used the word "bella", so what does that sentence mean?
Thanks a lot!

  -> Thank you. Cringeworthy because you recall your own teenage awkwardness.

agree  ~Ania~: if I remember correctly, it was actually a film and not a series, a very good film I hasten to add and well worth watching, of course Jack's answer is correct, for some strange reason this was indeed the case
