    • QUOTES (4)

      • Sid: I can't wait to get into my pointed Italian two-tones and off down the high street. Makes you feel like a king. Clean dicky dirt, new peckham, a pair of luminous almond rocks, new whistle, nice crease in my strides, barnet well greased up and flashing my Hampsteads at all the bona palones.


        Hancock: I didn't understand a word you said, but it sounded marvellous.

      • Sid: I am not ugly. There's a lot of women think that I'm very attractive.


        Hancock: Only women who aren't as good looking as you are. And they are few and far between, poor devils.

      • Hancock: I'm not interested in your washing. Just that I thought you were getting a better picture on yours, that's all.

      • Hancock: Saturday night nearly over and not another one for seven days ...
        Sid: Wait a minute, I think there's still time to find a couple of birds.
        Hancock: Of course there isn't, it's ten o'clock, all the spare stuff'll be fixed up by now. You mark my words, by my experience if there's anything left after ten o'clock, mate, it's rubbish!

      • Hancock: Jayne Mansfield's old man?

        When a customer at the launderette takes off his shirt and shows a puny chest, Hancock makes a snide remark, alluding to Jayne Mansfield's bodybuilder husband, Mickey Hargitay.
