      • Fletcher: You don't wanna let that illegitimate bit worry you. I mean, lots of famous people were illegitimate, you know? Oh yeah, royalty and all. William the Conqueror, he was illegitimate. Leonardo da Vinci. Lawrence of Arabia. Napper Wainwright.
        McLaren: Who's Napper Wainwright?
        Fletcher: He was a screw at Brixton. Mind you, he was a bastard, he was...

      • Ives: Fletcher, what about a decent book, do you know what I mean?
        Fletcher: You mean something risqué?
        Ives: No, it won't be risky. I won't tell anyone.
        Fletcher: Risqué means dirty, you stupid nurk.
        Ives: Oh, yeah, yeah, that's what I mean.
        Fletcher: I thought you did. I could let you have this one. It's about sex-starved lady pygmies of the Southern Malaysian desert.
        Ives: What's it called?
        Fletcher: Little Women.
