And -- and they gave -- they gave me this pipe, said it was apple tobacco but that's not what they called it when I was a student, so -- so I made my excuses and left. I needed time to think.

  • (Judi Dench) ", we dunk biscuits into it."

Nothing else matters."
  • (Judi Dench) "But it's also true that the person who risks nothing, does nothing; has nothing. All we know about the future is that it will be different.

  • (Celia Imrie) "When someone dies, you think about your own life. And I don't want to grow older. I don't want to be condescended to. To become marginalized and ignored by society. I don't want to be the first person they let off the plane in a hostage crisis."
  • (Judi Dench) "Can there be anywhere else in the world that is such an assault on the senses? Those who know the country of old just go about their business. But nothing can prepare the uninitiated for this riot of noise and color. For the heat, the motion; the perpetual teeming crowds."

  • (Bill Nighy) "Look. Can you hear yourself? Can you? Do you have any idea what a terrible person you have become? All you give out is this endless negativity, a refusal to see any kind of light and joy, even when it's staring you in the face, and a desperate need to squash any sign of happiness in me or -- or -- or -- anyone else.
