  • (David Thewlis) "Have you ever thought, right, but you don't know, but you may have already lived the happiest day in your whole f***in' life and all you have left to look forward to is f***in' sickness and purgatory?"

  • (David Thewlis) "You think you can recapture your youth by f***ing it? You don't want to f*** me. You'll catch something cruel."
  • (David Thewlis) "Look, if you take the whole of time and represent it by one year, were only in the first few moments of the first of January. There's a long way to go. Only now were not going to spout extra limbs and wings and fins because evolution itself is evolving. When it comes, the apocalypse itself will be part of the process of that leap of evolution."
  • (Peter Wight) "Yeah, well. Whatever happens mankind will not cease to exist"
  • (David Thewlis) "We must. By the very definition of apocalypse, mankind must cease to exist, at least in a material form."
  • (Peter Wight) "What do you mean, in a material form?"
  • (David Thewlis) "We will evolve."
  • (Peter Wight) "What into?"
  • (David Thewlis) "We'll evolve into something that transcends matter, into a species of pure thought. Are you with me?"
  • (Peter Wight) "Yeah, like a ghost."
  • (David Thewlis) "Not like a f***ing ghost you big girl's blouse. Into something thats well beyond our comprehension. Into a universal consciousness. Into God. Who is by the same principle that time is."

  • (David Thewlis) "Resolve is never stronger than in the morning after the night it was never weaker."
  • (David Thewlis) "You know at birth when you cut the umbilical cord; what would happen if, uh, well if it was never cut?"

  • (David Thewlis) "And what is it what goes on in this postmodern gas chamber?"
  • (Peter Wight) "Nothing. It's empty."
  • (David Thewlis) "So what is it you guard, then?"
  • (Peter Wight) "Space."
  • (David Thewlis) "You're guarding space? That's stupid, isn't it? Because someone could break in there and steal all the f***in' space and you wouldn't know it's gone, would you?"
  • (Peter Wight) "Good point."
  • (David Thewlis) "f***in' hell, why hast thou forsaken me? Bastard."
  • (David Thewlis) "Oh, "Jane Austen" by Emma. That's one of me favorite books."

  • (David Thewlis) "Thanks for the mammaries."
  • (David Thewlis) "You see, the thing is, Brian, that God is a hateful god. Must be, because if God is good, then why is there evil in the world? Why is there pain and hate and greed and war? Doesn't make sense. But if God is a nasty bastard, then you can say, "Why is there good in the world? Why is there love and hope and joy?""
  • (David Thewlis) "It's funny bein' inside 'int it? 'Cos when ya are inside, yer still actually outside aren't ya. And then you can say when you're outisde, you're inside because you're always inside yer head. Do you follow that?"
  • (David Thewlis) "No matter how many books you read, there is something in this world that you never ever ever ever ever f***ing understand."
  • (David Thewlis) "Has nobody not told you, Brian, that you've got this kind of gleeful preoccupation with the future? I wouldn't even mind, but you don't even have a f***in' future, I don't have a future. Nobody has a future. The party's over. Take a look around you man, it's all breaking up. Are you not familiar with the book of Revelations of St. John, the final book of the Bible prophesying the apocalypse? -- He forced everyone to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one shall be able to buy or sell unless he has the mark, which is the name of the beast, or the number of his name, and the number of the beast is 6-6-6 -- What can such a specific prophecy mean? What is the mark? Well the mark, Brian, is the barcode, the ubiquitous barcode that you'll find on every bog roll and packet of johnnies and every poxy pork pie, and every f***in' barcode is divided into two parts by three markers, and those three markers are always represented by the number 6. 6-6-6. Now what does it say? No one shall be able to buy or sell without that mark. And now what they're planning to do in order to eradicate all credit card fraud and in order to precipitate a totally cashless society, what they're planning to do, what they've already tested on the American troops, they're going to subcutaneously laser tattoo that mark onto your right hand, or onto your forehead. They're going to replace plastic with flesh. Fact. In the same book of Revelations when the seven seals are broken open on the day of judgment and the seven angels blow the trumpets, when the third angel blows her bugle, wormwood will fall from the sky, wormwood will poison a third part of all the waters and a third part of all the land and many many many people will die. Now do you know what the Russian translation for wormwood is? -- Chernobyl. Fact. On August the 18th, 1999, the planets of our solar system are gonna line up into the shape of a cross -- They're gonna line up in the signs of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, and Scorpio, which just happen to correspond to the four beasts of the apocalypse, as mentioned in the book of Daniel, another f***in' fact. Do you want me to go on? The end of the world is nigh, Brian, the game is up."
  • (Peter Wight) "I don't believe that. Life can't just come to a stop."
  • (David Thewlis) "All right, I'm not saying that life will end or the world will end, or the universe will cease to exist. But man will cease to exist. Just like the dinosaurs passed into extinction, the same thing will happen to us. We're not f***in' important. We're just a crap idea."
  • (David Thewlis) "I've got an infinite number of places to go, the problem is where to stay."
  • (David Thewlis) "Well, Brian, congratulations. You've succeeded in convincin' me that you do 'ave the most tedious f***in' job in England."

  • (Masseuse) "Why?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "I don't want to get old, do you?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "You're very beautiful, aren't you?"
  • (Katrin Cartlidge) "Am I?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "In a quirky sort of way."
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "You've got wonderful breasts."
  • (Masseuse) "Don't you mean "tits"?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "Are they both the same size, or is one bigger than the other?"
  • (Masseuse) "I don't know. D'you want to weigh them?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "Is that a proposition?"
  • (Masseuse) "No, it's a threat -- Are you rich?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "Life is for enjoying."
  • (Masseuse) "What about family? Have you got any brothers or sisters?"
  • (Greg Cruttwell) "I try not to remember."

Peter Wight as Brian

  • (Peter Wight) "Waste not, want not."
  • (David Thewlis) "And other clichés."
  • (Peter Wight) "But a cliché is full of truth, otherwise it wouldn't be a cliché."
  • (David Thewlis) "Which is in itself a cliché."
  • (Peter Wight) "Yes, it is a boring job. Bloody boring, actually. But all you can see is the tip of the iceberg, the present, the tedious here and now. What you're incapable of seeing is the rest of time, the rest of the iceberg, past and the future; my future; which is a very interesting place to be. The good thing about this job is that it gives me time and space to contemplate the future at my leisure, whilst the city sleeps, free from the cacophonous curiosity of the hoi polloi. So, you see, it's not a boring job. And I'm not boring either."
  • (Peter Wight) "What are you doing here?"
  • (David Thewlis) "Well, I was standing over there, but that didn't seem to be working out for me, so I moved over here, but this one isn't much better."

Sorry about that pal, it's just I've had a lot of bad experience with walls, you know, what with talking to them and climbing them, and me dad's driven me up a good few of them in 'is time, you know what I mean? But I think I've got the secret. The saucy little secret, this solipsistic, sagacious little secret is just, you got, you just gotta bang your f***in' head against them. Just crack the old pate. Are you with me? Have you got it? And that's it, that's the key to enlightenment, which is, it's like that's why, it's like such a potent motif of civilization; it's the wall. It's like the, the Great Wall of China, and the Wall of Jericho and the Berlin Wall, and the Wailin' Wall. Now you see the Jews, they've almost got it, an't they? What with the old rockin' and that, and you know, just that six inches away and they'd be there, they'd have won the f***in' race, they'll be there, you with me?"
  • (David Thewlis) "What is all this, anyway? What are you doing? Cancel everything. In the beginnin' there was the Word, and the word was "cancelled." D'you get like satisfaction out of this? D'you think you're makin' a contribution? You're like sort of publicly promulgating vacuities? Are you with me? f***in' hell."
  • (David Thewlis) "Oh, that's it. Blank it all out. Blank it all out till you just atrophy and die of f***ing indifference. Can I show you something, pal? You see that at the top of your legs? That's your arse and that's your f***ing elbow. Do you want to write it down or s --"

  • (David Thewlis) "The place?"
  • (Claire Skinner) "No. And this is where I --"
  • (David Thewlis) "Live?"
  • (Claire Skinner) "Yes, and I'm not feeling very --"

  • (Claire Skinner) "Yes."

Katrin Cartlidge as Sophie

  • (Katrin Cartlidge) "I don't know what they want from you half the time. What they start off liking you for, they end up hating you for. Don't like you if you're strong. Don't like you if you're weak. Hate you if you're clever, hate you if you're stupid. They don't know what they want."
  • (Katrin Cartlidge) "You shouldn't stick anything up your c*** that you can't put in your mouth."

Lesley Sharp as Louise

  • (Lesley Sharp) "So what happened, were you bored in Manchester?"
  • (David Thewlis) "Was I bored? No, I wasn't f***in' bored. I'm never bored. That's the trouble with everybody; you're all so bored. You've had nature explained to you and you're bored with it, you've had the living body explained to you and you're bored with it, you've had the universe explained to you and you're bored with it. So now you want cheap thrills and like plenty of them, and it don't matter how tawdry or vacuous they are as long as it's new, as long as it's new, as long as it flashes and f***in' bleeps in forty f***in' different colors. So whatever else you can say about me, I'm not f***in' bored."
  • (Lesley Sharp) "Well, I don't know if I want to get married, but I wouldn't say no to a proper relationship."
