QUOTES FROM Richard E. Grant CHARACTERS

Clifford
You don't have a life. You have a schedule.
Barkis Bittern
I was betrothed, once along time ago but tragedy bestowed my love.
Jack
She doesn't need someone who's impressive, Mum. She needs someone who'll love her.
Anna
All I'm saying is, if you'd like a couple of days off around the 22nd, it would be good for us.
Jack
But she's not due until the 25th, Anna.
Anna
Fine, I'm just saying things will be more manageable around the 22nd.
Jack
All right. sure. I'll ask Sarah to check her diary and see if she can bring the birth forward.
Jack
Do you want nipple pads or nipple shield or just the pads?
Amy
Bastard.
Jack
Okay, I'll get both. Flesh colored or white? (shrugs)
Jack
Okay, I'll get both. Flesh colored or white? [shrugs]
Amy
If your father goes on this way, we're going to end up being a single parent family.
Dennis Bagley
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOIL!
Barkis Bittern
*crawls out from underneath table, after all the dead people interrupt the wedding reception* That's it. We're going to take whatever money we can and get out of here.
Barkis Bittern
[crawls out from underneath table, after all the dead people interrupt the wedding reception] That's it. We're going to take whatever money we can and get out of here.
Victoria Everglot
Money? What money?
Barkis Bittern
Your dowry. It's my right!
Victoria Everglot
My parents don't have any money. It's my marriage to you that will save them from the poorhouse.
Barkis Bittern
The....the poorhouse?! *grabs and shakes Victoria* You're lying. It isn't true. Tell me that you're lying!!
Barkis Bittern
The....the poorhouse?! [grabs and shakes Victoria] You're lying. It isn't true. Tell me that you're lying!!
Victoria Everglot
Did things not go according to your plan, Lord Barkis? *squirms out of Barkis's arms* Well, perhaps in dissapointment we are perfectly matched!
Victoria Everglot

Withnail
I feel like a pig shat in my head.
Withnail
I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth. And indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory. This most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appeareth nothing to me but a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculties! How like an angel in apprehension. How like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me, no, nor women neither. Nor women neither.
Barkis Bittern
But first! A toast, to Emily. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride! Tell me my dear, can a heart still break once it's stopped beating?
Withnail
We've gone on holiday by mistake.
