Shallow Grave Quotes

Christopher Eccleston as David Stephens

  • (Christopher Eccleston) "Well, Brian McKinley, if you want to talk to my girlfriend you talk to me first. If you want to dance with her, then you apply in writing three weeks in advance or you're going to end up inside a f***ing bin-bag. You didn't apply so you don't dance."

These are the important things in life. These are the things that matter, that help you on your way. If you can't trust your friends, well, what then -- What then? -- Oh, yes. I believe in friends. I believe we need them. But if one day you can't trust them any more, well, what then -- What then?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "And how would you react, then, if I told you I was the Antichrist?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "Victory is the same as defeat. It's giving in to destructive competitive urges."

  • (Christopher Eccleston) "Do you smoke?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "You paid 500 pounds for this?"
  • (Unnamed) "That's what it cost, David."
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "No, no, that's what you paid for it. 500 pounds is what you paid for it. We don't know how much it cost us yet. For you two to have a good time, we don't know the cost of that yet."
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "It's a sick idea Alex. It's sick."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Go ahead then, telephone. Telephone the police. Tell them it's a suitcase full of money and you don't want it."
  • (Unnamed) "Chartered accounting. It's often sneered at. Were you aware of that?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "Not any real sneering as such, no."
  • (Unnamed) "There's a whole wide world out there, and it all needs to be accounted for, does it not?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "Well, I --"
  • (Unnamed) "But they sneer, do they not?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "I'm not sure."
  • (Unnamed) "Oh, it's unfashionable, I know, but yes, we're methodical, yes, we're diligent, yes, we're serious, and where's the crime in that? Why not shout it from the rooftops? Yes, maybe sometimes we're a wee bit boring, but by God we get the job done."

  • (Christopher Eccleston) "They know."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "So they know."
  • (Unnamed) "He's right Alex, they know."

Ewan McGregor as Alex Law

  • (Ewan McGregor) "Cameron, what a surprise."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "And if you see I'm dying up there you'll call the police and tell them everything, right?"
  • (Unnamed) "Everything."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Except that maybe it was his idea in the first place. Now that's important to me. I need to die misunderstood."

  • (Ewan McGregor) "To love and to happiness forever."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "So tell me, Cameron, just tell me because I'd like to know, what on earth could make you think that we would want to share a flat like this with someone like you? I mean, my first impression, and they're rarely wrong, is that you have none of the qualities that we normally seek in a prospective flatmate. I'm talking here about things like presence, charisma, style and charm, and I don't think we're asking too much, I don't think we're being unreasonable. Take David here, for instance: a chartered accountant he may be, but at least he tries hard. The point is I don't think you're trying."
  • (Unnamed) "Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention please. First of all may I thank you all for coming along tonight and supporting our appeal to raise funds for the sick children's unit."

  • (Ewan McGregor) "They went up there alive and came back down dead. Did you notice that? The difference, I mean: alive, dead, dead, alive, that sort of thing? It wasn't difficult to spot. He killed them both."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "When was the last time you heard these exact words: "You are the sunshine of my life"?"
  • (Unnamed) "Alex, what are you doing?"
  • (Ewan McGregor) "I'm just looking."
  • (Unnamed) "Don't."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Don't look?"
  • (Unnamed) "No."
  • (Unnamed) "Have you seen Hugo?"

  • (Ewan McGregor) "Look over there. It's Cameron."
  • (Unnamed) "Who?"
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Cameron. You remember Cameron."
  • (Unnamed) "No, I don't."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "What's he doing here?"
  • (Unnamed) "That's not him."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "It is. Cameron. Cameron. Come on over here. Come on."
  • (Colin McCredie) "What?"
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Nothing. We thought you were someone else. Good luck. (Cameron leaves.) I love that guy, but why does he have to follow us around?"
  • (Ewan McGregor) "I'm so happy I could DIE."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "It's not every day I find a story in my own flat."
  • (Unnamed) "It's not a story, Alex. It's a corpse."

  • (Ewan McGregor) "Hey Hugo, can you open your door?"

  • (Unnamed) "It's about me and David."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Oh, the perfect couple, I should say."
  • (Unnamed) "You mustn't take it so badly."
  • (Ewan McGregor) "Oh, don't worry. I'd do exactly the same thing, only I don't think I'm his type."

Ken Stott as Detective-Inspector McCall

  • (Ken Stott) "And the other three people living in the flat?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "There are only two other people living in the flat."
  • (Ken Stott) "Only three people here? You're sure?"
  • (Christopher Eccleston) "Yes, absolutely. Who said there were four?"
  • (Ken Stott) "Make a note of that, Mitchell. Only three, rather than four. Write it down. You can use numbers or words. I have no preference. Which are you using?"
