A Shock to the System
Movie Quote Quiz

Lieutenant Laker: You know, sudden death hasn't been all bad to you.

Lieutenant Laker: He was your superior, wasn't he?
Graham Marshall: No, he was my boss.

Melanie O'Conner: I think it's rotten, Mr. Marshall. The only reason you didn't get that job is 'cause they didn't give it to you.

Robert Benham: This isn't exactly comfortable for me, I know you wanted this job. I suppose if we were rival princes, I could just have you killed. It would save a lot of politics.
Graham Marshall: It's not that easy to kill someone and get away with it.

Graham Marshall: My father had it all figured out. He was a London bus driver. And when I was a boy, he used to take me over the river to Mayfair, where the rich people lived. And he used to say to me, "Son - there is no heaven. Here is the closest you will ever get. Life, here, is sweet. Life, back over there, is hard. So live over here, son!"

Deliberate mistake: The same shot of the railway station concourse is used when Graham and George are heading to work, and also when George commits suicide. The giveaway is that several people are seen in the same position. (00:05:00 - 01:20:30)
