      • Alan: Oh, Norman, don't cry, please. I can't bear to see a grown transsexual cry.

      • Norman: When I'm a woman, the authorities won't be able to touch me. Unless they ask me nicely.

      • Alan: If the British people have just voted for an independent nuclear deterrent, then they should be proud to have British nuclear waste under their schools.


        Norman: But this is Argentinian nuclear waste!


        Alan: Well, then it's probably less radioactive. I mean, the Argies aren't as fit as we are, are they, Norman?

      • Sidney: I'm afraid of depths, sir.
        Alan: afraid of what?
        Sidney: Depths, sir. Some people are afraid of heights, I'm afraid of depths. That's why all the barrels in my pub are under the counter, so I don't have to go down to the cellar.

      • Alan claims he's storing nuclear waste for General Galtieri. Leopoldo Galtieri (1926-2003) was the Argentinian dictator during the Falklands War.
