      • Dan: Will you feck off with your feckin' bon-bon!

      • Theo: Ice cream? At a funeral? That's a novelty.

      • Sgt. Dick O'Toole: Have you considered an equestrian statue?
        Dan: Ah, nothing fancy like that, Dick. A fella on a horse would be ideal.

      • Dan: There was a grand-uncle of a third cousin of mine, he died of the Flu Epidemic of 1918.
        Jacksie: When was that again, Dan?
        Dan: Ara, some time in the last century, Jacksie.

      • Willie: (rehearsing the eulogy) Then came the Black and Tans who for 800 years marched the length and breadth of this little village until their blood ran red in the field!...And then the Famine, when the potatoes rotted in our streets!

      • Mr. Cantwell: (to his class) I'll tell ya this much now boys, ye're a guard of honour at a funeral tomorra, ye're not a shower of monkeys being paraded about at feedin' time!

      • Ken Hammond: Mr. Houlihan's death comes just two days after his horse, Killinaskully King, was put down. He was 87. The MET office has confirmed that last week-
        (Jacksie turns off the television)
        Timmy: 87. That was a fair age for a horse.
        Dan: It was Jumpin' Gerry Houlihan who was 87, ya looder!
        Timmy: Oh.
        Dan: Killinaskully King was no more than 61, 62.

      • Jimmy: If there's a shower worse than them Black and Tans, it's that shower above in Dublin!

      • Jimmy: For me, it would have to be the Emerald. God, the Emerald's a lovely sweet.
        Jacksie: I could never object to an Emerald.

      • Dan: I must see a man about a badger.

      • Dan: Well, do you know what?! If there's a shower worse than the Black and Tans, it's that shower above in RTÉ!

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Timmy: I heard that every time John Wayne shot a Cherokee Indian, it was really Gerry who fell off the horse.

        John Wayne

        John Wayne was an American film actor whose career began in silent movies in the 1920s. He was a major star from the 1940s to the 1970s. He is most famous for his Westerns, but he also made films of various other kinds. He epitomised a certain kind of rugged individualistic masculinity, and has become an enduring icon. His final film was The Shootist in 1976. He died of lung and stomach cancer on June 11, 1979.

        The Cherokee

        The Cherokee are a people native to North America who at the time of European contact in the 16th century inhabited what is now the eastern and southeastern United States before most were forcefully moved to the Ozark Plateau. They were one of the tribes referred to as the Five Civilised Tribes.
