[to Lucy] My god you... you have perfect teeth. No, no. You do -- they're perfect. You know, people in Liverpool only seldom do. They stick out in all different directions. It's horrible.
Haven't you ever heard of braces?
Yes I have, thank you very much. We use them to keep our trousers up.
[after hearing Max wants to avoid the draft] You still have options man.
Yeah, jail or Canada and they both suck. I mean I could never come home, so what is it, it's a choice of a 6x4 cell or an endless wasteland of frozen tundra.
Montreal is cool.
Man, they speak French there.
So learn French. Learn French or die.
