Archie Rice: Look at these eyes. I'm dead - behind these eyes. I'm dead.

Archie Rice: Jeannie, love. Shall I tell you something? All my life I've been searching for something. A draught Bass you could drink all night without running off every ten minutes, without feeling sick, and all for fourpence. The man who could offer me that would really get my vote.

Archie Rice: Anyway, you can't get draught Bass in Canada... I went to Canada during the war. Couldn't get draught Bass, not even in Toronto.

I may be an old fraud Daniel, but I do know this: something that two people who are in love create together against impossible odds, can hold them together... forever.

Julius: There was no Emilia. She was a fantasy.
Daniel Michon: She was a lie.
Julius: She was an attempt to bring - a little romance - into my life.

Julius: If I could pick horses, I wouldn't have to pick pockets.

Milo Tindle: What for?
Andrew Wyke: Suppose somebody saw you coming.
Milo Tindle: Here? In the middle of nowhere? I could hardly find this place with a bloody map.
Andrew Wyke: You never know. A dallying couple, a passing sheep-rapist.

Andrew Wyke: It's sex! Sex is the game! Marriage is the penalty. Round and round we jog towards each futile anniversary. Pass "Go." Collect 200 rows, 200 silences, 200 scars in the deep places.
