    • Chris: Money, it's just bits of paper or numbers on a screen isn't it really. But these walls they exist. If you can imagine memories happening in them than that's real isn't it? I just, I want you to imagine dying. Alright I know that sounds weird but just, you're really old and you're in your bed and you're remembering your life. Your daughter's first birthday. Shagging on a Sunday afternoon. Skinning up in the garden. With the kids. Alright when you do that, is this the house that you see in all those memories? Cause if it is than a few bits of paper here or there don't really seem to matter.

    • (Chris is at a job interview)
      Interviewer: Your CV, it's unusual. We don't get many written on cigarette packets.
      Chris: I like to recycle.
      Interviewer: By a few of your GCSE subjects you put a question mark?
      Chris: I wasn't sure if they counted.
      Interviewer: Why not?
      Chris: Because I achieved fail grades.
      Interviewer: I see... So, I'm looking for a trainee, somebody good with people. A talker.

    • Chris: Thanks for coming.
      (Jal holds up a piece of paper that says 'Yes' on it).
      Chris: OK. I've been thinking about why I alway f*ck everything up for myself. And this is the best way I can explain.
      (Chris with a posterboard turns a page).
      Chris: This is how it started for me. It was good.
      (Chris turns another page).
      Chris: Then it started going wrong.
      (Chris turns another page).
      Chris: Then someone else escaped. The gravity holding us together was gone. We're floating in space.
      (Chris turns another two pages).
      Chris: It's kind easy when you've got nothing. Cause when you've got nothing, nothing can be taken away from you. But I don't want nothing anymore.

    • Jal: You're not who I thought you were. You're an empty poisonous smile.
      Chris: Jal, what do you want me to say? I don't know what I'm meant to say. Jal, look at me. I was perfectly happy killing myself. But then you asked me to try. And for the first time in my life it felt like sombody actually gave a sh!t. That person was worth trying for. And now, I'd make the worlds record biggest sandwich if you asked me to. I'd kick old granny in the tits. I'd fill the rivers with panda pops. I'd...
      Jal: Stop.
      Chris: I f*cked up big time. I'm more than sorry. I love you Jal. You're my whole world.

    • Careers lady: What happened, Chris?
      Chris: We'll there's loads of these Chinese lads flipping the burgers there right? Me and Hanley were having a spliff break and then Paul, shift manager comes along and he said you can't do that. Why not? It's pucking hard getting people to talk to you. Child abuse is pretty depressing. So my theory was, reel them in with the free porn and then get to the serious stuff. So then I said why can't people bring their own glasses to the bar. No wonder this countries turning obese. But this fella said that was the job and if I didn't like it, I could puck off. So I told him he was a pitty boss and a pastard and he could puck his pucking polo up his packside stupid pr!ck.
      Careers lady I think one slipped through there Chris.
      Chris Stupid punt.

    • Chris: Do you ever get depressed about your accident?
      Tony: Used to. But who does it help? I had everything I wanted and I lost it all. Hurts like fuck. But Chris, I'm going to get it all back. Piece by piece. What else is there?

    • Chris: It's kinda easy when you've got nothing because nothing can be taken away from you, but I don't want nothing anymore.

    • Cassie: That's people. We arrive, consume all we can and then leave. Like locusts.

    • Cassie: (to Jal) I've already had my pain. Yours is in the post.
