  • (Colin Firth) "Why ask? And what sort of berk would do that? You'd just about forgive an alien visitor from the planet Tharg, but even then, you'd have --"
  • (Mark Strong) "Where're you going? You're mad. You might miss something."
  • (Colin Firth) "I wouldn't put that on. It -- you know -- not the right mood."
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "Oh? And what's the right mood?"
  • (Colin Firth) "Well -- I don't know. Just something --"
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "What?"
  • (Colin Firth) "You know -- just -- something not as sweary and loud."
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "Paul, that's the most romantic thing you've ever said to me."

  • (Colin Firth) "Sorry Ted as far as I'm concerned there's nothing to think about. Come on Sam, put it away."
  • (Colin Firth) "Why is it that adults aren't supposed to go mad about anything? You gotta keep a lid on it. And if you don't then people are apparently entitled to say what they like. "You haven't grown up. You're a moron. Your conversation is trivial and boorish. You can't express your emotional needs. You can't relate to your children." And you die, lonely and miserable. But you know, what the hell, every cloud has a silver lining."

Ruth Gemmell as Sarah Hughes

  • (Ruth Gemmell) "So you don't get many Micky Thomas moments in real life?"
  • (Colin Firth) "You don't a lot in football either."
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "Paul, it's only a game."
  • (Colin Firth) "DON'T SAY THAT. Please. That is the worst, most stupid thing anyone could say. Cause it quite clearly isn't "only a game." I mean if it was do you honestly think I'd care this much? Eh? Eighteen years. Eight-teen years. Do you know what you wanted eighteen years ago? Or ten? Or five? Did you want to be Head of Year at North London Comprehensive, I doubt it. I'd doubt if you wanted anything for that long. And if you had, and if you'd spent three months thinking that finally, FINALLY you were gonna get it and just when you think it's there it's taken away from you -- I mean I don't care what it is, a car, a job, an Oscar, the baby -- then you'd understand how I was feeling tonight. But there isn't, and you don't, so --"
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "So, so what, so f*** off, go home, leave you alone? I'll tell you something Paul, there isn't anything that I've wanted for eighteen years, cause I was a kid eighteen years ago. And if I did still want the same things I'd think I'd gone wrong somewhere, because actually I don't want to marry David Cassidy, I don't want bigger tits, I don't want to do better on my mock-Os. I've stopped worrying about that kind of thing and maybe you should try."
  • (Colin Firth) "Well maybe there's a big bit of you that's gone missing somewhere, maybe everyone should want something they've always wanted."
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "What are those?"
  • (Colin Firth) "My Arsenal boxer shorts. But they're not my best ones, I was running out --"
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "But you're willing to show them to another human being?"
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "I don't think that Arsenal's home form is a sturdy enough basis for marriage and parenthood, do you?"
  • (Colin Firth) "No. Not even this season."

Holly Aird as Jo

  • (Holly Aird) "It's all a sinister form of male manipulation."
  • (Ruth Gemmell) "Rubbish."
  • (Holly Aird) "It's true. You get colonized. Your native culture gets driven out, and it's replaced by stuff that you don't like and don't even want to know about."
