But if any knowing bastard says that's me I'll tell them I'm a dynamite dealer waiting to blow the factory to kingdom come. I'm me and nobody else. Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not because they don't know a bloody thing about me. God knows what I am."
  • (Albert Finney) "Think of number one, share and share alike's no good."
  • (Bryan Pringle) "You wouldn't think like that though if you won the pools though, would you?"

  • (Albert Finney) "Make a bonfire."
