    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Gerry Standing: Now Stanley left the factory for a bit of the other, right?
        Jack Halford: Right.
        Gerry Standing: But he forgot his mobile phone. So when he gets to his girlfriend's flat he realizes he can't find it, so he dials the number, like you do when you lose your phone. Now the fire started in the kitchen area, and he'd left the gas on. The phone rings, ignites the gas. Well it's like when you turn on a light bulb. When a mobile phone rings, it *can* spark electricity. That's why you get all these notices telling you not to use 'em near petrol pumps and stuff. So the call sparks the phone; the spark ignites the gas. Well, it's obvious, isn't it?
        Supt. Sandra Pullman: You clever boy.

      • Gerry Standing: I'm game, as the poacher said when they shot him.

      • George: You are joking!
        Sandra: No, because if I was I'd have a red nose and a hat with a ruddy great bell on it.

      • Brian Lane: If you find a map with an 'X' on it, you are intrinsically bound to follow it, go there, and start digging!
