Quotes from Bill Nighy's Characters

    1. Adam: Remember, I have no soul.
    2. Naberius: You have soul.
    From I, Frankenstein. Submitted by Dave S (2 months ago)
    1. Tim's Father: No, I never said we could fix things. I specifically never said that. Life's a mixed bag, no matter who you are. Look at Jesus: he was the son of a God, for God's sake and look how that turned out.
    From About Time. Submitted by Peter A (5 months ago)
