Well I suppose it's nice for a change. Ok, here goes --"
  • (Lucy Owens) "My family's here tonight sitting at that table over there. Were celebrating my mum's birthday today. We all love you, Peggy Owens. And, there's a man down there in my crowd called Adam and he's my fella. And I know my mum's mad about him. So I thought the best present I could give my mum would be to say that him and I are going to get married."

  • (Laura Owens) "Lucy said he was shy. He doesn't look shy to me. Why does she always delude herself? Oh, poor mum. So many boyfriends and she tries so hard to like them all. Even Martin. Well, she suffers him for Alice's sake. Whatever else I do, I won't make that mistake. Whatever else I do, nothing basically. Right, be nice."
  • (Alice Owens Rooney) "Oh, Jwanie. Why can't you always stay that way? You'd be better off. Nope, it's all ahead of you. You'll grow up, and you'll be beautiful. The fellas will come sniffing around, and sooner or later some f***ing eejit will lurch over to you with that look in his eye. And he'll say, "Do you know what you need, love? What you need is a good shag." Oh, it will happen. Believe me. But Jean, you know what really annoying thing is? It might be true."
