  • (Abbie Cornish) "Did you know that dad mixed a martini for Winston Churchill? He also danced a waltz with Amelia Earhart in 1975."
  • (Russell Crowe) "Well, considering that Amelia Earhart died in the 1930's, that's a perfect example of the type of exaggerator Uncle Henry was. Want to know the real Uncle Henry? Not the one your overactive imagination is manufacturing? The real Henry Skinner was a man so afraid of committing to the real world, that he retreated from life to drink and shag his way to a lonely and loveless end."

Isabelle Candelier as Ludivine Duflot

  • (Didier Bourdon) "Oh, but very few still understand it. It's now exclusively practiced by poets and sodomites."
  • (Isabelle Candelier) "Hmm -- what a "sodomite" is, by the way?"
  • (Didier Bourdon) "Ah, we'll explain you tonight."

Freddie Highmore as Young Max

  • (Uncle Henry Skinner) "Max, have I told you why I enjoy making wine so much?"
  • (Freddie Highmore) "You don't make the wine, Uncle Henry; that guy Duflot does."
  • (Uncle Henry Skinner) "In France it's always the landowner who makes the wine, even though he does nothing more than supervise with binoculars from the comfort of his study. No, I enjoy making wine, because this sublime nectar is quite simply incapable of lying. Picked too early, picked too late, it matters not; the wine will always whisper into your mouth with complete, unabashed honesty every time you take a sip."
  • (Uncle Henry Skinner) "I thought, as it's your last night here, it only appropriate that we open something extra special."
  • (Freddie Highmore) "Bandol."
  • (Uncle Henry Skinner) "Excellent choice. Tempier Bandol, 1969, the kind of wine that'll pickle even the toughest of men. I once saw a Castilian prizefighter collapse in a heap after drinking just a single glass. Perhaps my knee landing squarely in his testicles may have been partly to blame -- What was I talking about before?"
  • (Freddie Highmore) "You said the importance of a good blue suit can never be overstated."
  • (Uncle Henry Skinner) "Quite right. A blue suit is the most versatile of accoutrements. More important than the suit itself, is the man who fits it for you. Once you find a good tailor, you must never give his name away; not even under the threat of bodily harm."
