Quotes from Ewan McGregor's Characters

    • Bill Fordham:
      You're so goddamn self-righteous, you know that?
    • Barbara Weston:
      Surely you must have realized when you started porkin' Pippi Longstockin' that you were due for some self-righteousness, just a smudge of indignation on my part!

    • Bill Fordham:
      You're thoughtful, Barbara, but you're not open. You're passionate, but you're hard. You're a good, decent, funny, wonderful woman, and I love you, but - YOU'RE A PAIN IN THE ASS!
