"D’you know what you sounded like? You sounded like a fucking Nazi Julie Andrews!"

"You say nothing, okay? You stay detached, or that’s what I’ll do to your retinas."

"You get sarcastic with me again and I will stuff so much cotton wool down your fucking throat it’ll come out of your arse like the wee tail on a Playboy Bunny."

"Not the time, luv. I’m busy. Fuck off!"

"Fetus-boy. Lesson one. I tell you to fuck off, what do you do?" "Er. Eff off?" "You’ll go far. Now fuck off."

You are him.” They forget what their position is.’”
