        Grandad: Twelve hundred pounds for a hotel next to a smelly old waterworks?

        Rodney: What?

      • Grandad: He's a psycho!
        Chief of security: Do you have any idea what a "psycho", as you so eloquently put it, is?
        Grandad: Of course I have. He is a geezer what dresses up in his mother's clothes.

        A reference to Norman Bates, the main character in Hitchcock's Psycho, who indeed committed murders dressed in his mother's clothes.
