  • (Julia Sawalha) "Bunty, why didn't you give her some of yours?"
  • (Imelda Staunton) "I would have. She didn't tell me. She didn't tell anyone."
  • (Julia Sawalha) "This isn't good, Mac. IWhatever is in those boxes is for us, and I don't think it's softer hay."

You know, I come up here every night and look out to that hill, and imagine what it must be like on the other side. It's funny, I've; I've never actually felt grass beneath my feet. I'm sorry. Here I am rambling on about hills and grass, and you had something you wanted to say."
  • (Mel Gibson) "Uh, y-yeah. Um, it's just that, you know -- life, as I've experienced it; you know, out there lone free rangin' and stuff; it's, uh -- it's full of dissapointment, and, uh --"
  • (Julia Sawalha) "What, you mean grass isn't all it's cracked up to be?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "Grass. Exactly, grass. It's always greener on the other side. And then you get there, and it's brown and prickly. You see what I'm trying to say?"

  • (Julia Sawalha) "Something is wrong here; can't you see that? Strange boxes arrive during the night. Babs stops laying but they don't take her to the chop, and now they're giving us extra food. Don't you see what's happening? They're fattening us up. They're going to kill us all."
  • (Julia Sawalha) "That's for leaving."
  • (Julia Sawalha) "And this is for coming back."
  • (Julia Sawalha) "We've got to get out of here."
  • (Julia Sawalha) "You know what the problem is? The fences aren't just round the farm. They're up here, in you heads. There's a better place out there, somewhere beyond that hill, and it has wide open places, and lots of trees -- and grass. Can you imagine that? Cool, green grass."

  • (Jane Horrocks) "Is he on holiday?"
  • (Julia Sawalha) "He isn't anywhere. Don't you get it? There's no morning head count, no farmers, no dogs and coops and keys, and no fences."

  • (Phil Daniels) "That is French."
  • (Timothy Spall) "It's two hats in one, miss. For parties --"

  • (Phil Daniels) "Like a duck."
  • (Julia Sawalha) "Uh, Mr. Rhodes, perhaps I didn't explain our situation properly. We lay eggs; day in and day out. And when we can't lay any more, they kill us."

  • (Miranda Richardson) "What -- what -- what's all this, then?"
  • (Mrs. Tweedy) "This is our future, Mr. Tweedy. No more wasting time with petty egg collecting and minuscule profits."
  • (Miranda Richardson) "No more eggs? But we've always been egg farmers. Me father, and his father, and all their fathers, they was all --"
  • (Mrs. Tweedy) "Poor. Worthless. Nothings. But all that is about to change. This will take Tweedy's farm out of the Dark Ages and into full-scale automated production. Melicia Tweedy will be poor no longer."
