      • Sid: You know my philosophy. Eat, drink, be merry. Tomorrow we snuff it. If you've got it, spend it. If you ain't got it, get it.

      • Hancock: Do you realise you didn't turn one single thing off? Not one single thing! The washing machine was still going. All the water has evaporated and what has happened to the shirts we shall never know.

      • Hancock: I can't find the door key.


        Sid: It's hanging on a string behind the letter box.


        Hancock: Oh no! You're joking! You didn't leave it hanging behind the door?


        Sid: Certainly.


        Hancock: Oh, well that's it then, we've had it, haven't we! I doubt if there'll be any wallpaper left!

      • Returning home, Hancock notices a shadow behind the front door. He fears it to be Raffles. A.J. Raffles, the gentleman thief, was a creation of E.W. Hornung (1866-1921). He appeared in numerous short stories, novels and plays. David Niven played him in a 1939 film.
