Hot Fuzz (2007)
[Nicholas is giving a talk to a group of school children]
Nicholas Angel: Are there any questions?
[Danny is sitting at the back of a group]
Danny Butterman: Is it true that there's a point on a man's head where if you shoot it, it will blow up?

[last lines]
PC Doris Thatcher: [over radio] Any officers near the church?
Nicholas Angel: Go ahead, Doris.
PC Doris Thatcher: Chief, we've just gotten reports of some hippie types messing with the recycling bins at the supermarket.
Nicholas Angel: Leave it with us.
PC Doris Thatcher: Right-o.
Nicholas Angel: Sergeant Butterman? The little hand says it's time to rock and roll.
Danny Butterman: [puts on his sunglasses] Bring the noise!
[Nicholas wheels the car around, hits the siren, and floors the gas pedal]

Nicholas Angel: In the meantime, why don't you check out a few of Martin Blower's clients?
DS Andy Wainwright: Martin Blower represents damn near most of the village. Do you want us to go through the whole phone book?
DS Andy Cartwright: Yeah, we'll put a call in to Aaron A. Aaronson, shall we?
Nicholas Angel: Please, don't be childish. At least consider interviewing the widow. Martin Blower was clearly having an affair with Eve Draper.
DS Andy Wainwright: Ohh, and how did you establish that?
Danny Butterman: [pounds table] 'Cause we sat through three hours of so-called acting last night, and the kiss was the only convincing moment in it.
DS Andy Wainwright: All right, pipe down, biggun'.
DS Andy Cartwright: Here, what else you got, Crockett and Tubby?
Nicholas Angel: Skid marks.
DS Andy Wainwright: Now who's being childish?
Nicholas Angel: There were no skid marks at the scene! Doesn't it seem a little strange that Martin Blower would lose control of his car and not think to apply the brakes?

Danny Butterman: By the power of Greyskull!

Danny Butterman: So what made you want to become a policeman?
Nicholas Angel: Officer.
Danny Butterman: What made you want to become a policeman-officer?
Nicholas Angel: I don't remember a time when I didn't want to be a police officer... apart from the summer of 1979 when I wanted to be Kermit the Frog. It all started with my Uncle Derek. He was a Sergeant in the Met. He bought me a police pedal car when I was five. I rode around in it every second I was awake - arresting kids twice my size for littering and spitting. I got beaten up a lot when I was young, but it didn't stop me. I wanted to be like Uncle Derek.
Danny Butterman: He sounds like a good bloke.
Nicholas Angel: Actually, he was arrested for selling drugs to students.
Danny Butterman: What a cunt...
Nicholas Angel: Probably bought the pedal car with the proceeds. Needless to say, I never went near it again. I just let it rust. But I never lost the profound sense of right and wrong I felt at the wheel of that pedal car. I had to prove to myself that the Law could be proper and righteous and for the good of humankind. It was from that moment that I was destined to be a police officer.
Danny Butterman: Shame...
Nicholas Angel: How so?
Danny Butterman: I think you would have made a great Muppet...

Danny Butterman: Do you want anything from the shop?
Nicholas Angel: Cornetto.

DS Andy Wainwright: What are you thinking? Foul play? Maybe...
[to Danny and Nicholas]

Danny Butterman: [smiling] Hey, that's us!

Danny Butterman: Forget it, Nicholas... it's Sandford.

Nicholas Angel: You're a doctor, deal with it!
Danny Butterman: Yeah, motherfucker!

Danny Butterman: Ever fired your gun in the air and yelled, 'Aaaaaaah?'

Nicholas Angel: And are they as big as he is?
Danny Butterman: Who?
Nicholas Angel: The mum and the sister?
Danny Butterman: Same person.

Danny Butterman: [running to police car] I'll drive!
Nicholas Angel: SHOTGUN!
Nicholas Angel: Punch!... That!... Shit!

Nicholas Angel: I didn't mean to upset the apple cart.
DS Andy Cartwright: Oh yeah, cause we all sell apples 'round here, don't we?
Danny Butterman: Your dad sells apples, Andy.
DS Andy Cartwright: And raspberries.

Danny Butterman: Point Break or Bad Boys II?
Nicholas Angel: Which one do you think I'll prefer?
Danny Butterman: No, I mean which one do you wanna watch first?

[repeated line]

[repeated line]

Danny Butterman: What's it like being stabbed?

Danny Butterman: You're off the fuckin' chain!

Danny Butterman: Have you ever fired two guns whilst jumping through the air?

Danny Butterman: You've seen 'Die Hard', though?
Nicholas Angel: No.

[Nick Angel and Danny are returning from the pub]
Danny Butterman: Fancy a coffee?
Nicholas Angel: No thanks, don't drink it.
Danny Butterman: Cup of tea?
Nicholas Angel: I don't drink caffeine after midday.
Danny Butterman: A beer?
Nicholas Angel: [pauses] Umm...?

[looking at a suspicious-looking passerby]
Nicholas Angel: All right, what about this guy? Ask yourself, why has he got his hat pulled down like that?
Danny Butterman: He's fuck-ugly.
Nicholas Angel: Or, he doesn't want you to see his face.
Danny Butterman: 'Cause he's fuck-ugly.

Nicholas Angel: Yes, sir. Why is everyone eating chocolate cake?
Inspector Frank Butterman: The Black Forest gateau is on Danny, as punishment for his little indiscretion.
Nicholas Angel: His...? Sir, I don't think driving under the influence can be called a "little indiscretion."
Inspector Frank Butterman: No, the gateau is for misplacing his helmet the other week. Last night's incident will require something a rather more serious. Do you like ice cream?
Nicholas Angel: I'm sorry, sir. I don't follow.
Inspector Frank Butterman: Let's just say that we won't be short of Chunky Monkey for the next month.
Danny Butterman: [annoyed] Daaaaaad!

Nicholas Angel: Why are you wearing a police officer's uniform?
Danny Butterman: 'Cause I am one?

Inspector Frank Butterman: I suppose you're wondering why we call them the "Andies"?
Nicholas Angel: They're both called Andrew?
Inspector Frank Butterman: [delighted] They said you were good!
Danny Butterman: Also because talking to them is an uphill struggle, isn't it, Dad?
[Danny gets hit on the head with a wastepaper basket]
Danny Butterman: Fuck off!
Inspector Frank Butterman: Thank you, Danny.

Danny Butterman: [about PC Doris Thatcher] She's our only policewoman.
Nicholas Angel: She's not a policewoman.
Danny Butterman: [whispers] Yes, she is, I've seen her bra.

Nicholas Angel: If you had paid attention to me in school, you'd understand it's not all about car chases and excitement.
[someone speeds by, triggering Angel's radar speed gun]
Nicholas Angel: Fire up the roof.
[they chase and catch the speeding car]
Danny Butterman: Now that was *brilliant*.

[Frank Butterman is fleeing in a police car but crashes into a tree when he is distracted by the swan that Nicholas and Danny captured earlier]
Nicholas Angel: I feel as if I should say something smart.
Danny Butterman: You don't have to say anything at all.

[after supposedly stabbing Sgt. Angel, Danny is waving a sachet of tomato ketchup]
Danny Butterman: Ta-daaa!
Nicholas Angel: Danny, this is murder.
Danny Butterman: It's not murder, it's ketchup.
Nicholas Angel: It's Frank! He's appointed himself Judge, Jury and Executioner.
Danny Butterman: [agitated and defensive] He is not Judge Judy and Executioner.

Danny Butterman: [searching for the swan] Honk!

[Sergeant Angel has told Danny Butterman that Official Vocabulary no longer refers to car crashes as accidents: They are now called collisions]
Danny Butterman: Hey, why can't we say "accident," again?
Nicholas Angel: Because "accident" implies there's nobody to blame.

[Danny and Nicholas have just watched 'Point Break']
Danny Butterman: What do you think?
Nicholas Angel: Well, I wouldn't argue that it wasn't a no-holds-barred, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. But there is no way you can perpetrate that amount of carnage and mayhem and not incur a considerable amount of paperwork.
Danny Butterman: That is nothing man, this is about to go off!

Danny Butterman: Dad just said it was his special club.

Danny Butterman: Yeah, Roy-ee!

[shows him a flip animation]
Nicholas Angel: [stunned] That's just extraordinary.
Danny Butterman: You should see the one on the other side.

Nicholas Angel: I just want to be... good at what I do.
Danny Butterman: You are good at what you do, you just need to switch off that big ol' melon of yours.
Nicholas Angel: That's just it Danny, I don't think I know how.
Danny Butterman: I can show you.
[opens doors to a closet, reveals his rather large and extensive DVD collection]
Nicholas Angel: [stunned] By the power of Greyskull!
Danny Butterman: Point Break or Bad Boys II?
Nicholas Angel: Which do you think I'd prefer?
Danny Butterman: No I mean which do you want to watch first?
Nicholas Angel: You are pulling my leg right?

Danny Butterman: [reading a DVD cover] Meet Supercop... the cop, that can't be stopped.

[Angel and Butterman are driving to interview Arthur Webley, with PC Walker and his dog riding in the back]

[cut to the interview with Webley]
Arthur Webley: [mumbles unintelligibly]
Nicholas Angel: Right...
[turns to Butterman and Walker]
Nicholas Angel: What did he say?
PC Bob Walker: He said...
[mumbles only slightly more intelligibly]
Nicholas Angel: [turns to Butterman] What did he say?
Danny Butterman: He said, "an hedge is an hedge, he only chopped it down because it spoilt his view, and what's Reaper moaning about?"

[seeing Webley's barn full of guns]
Nicholas Angel: Where on earth did you get these?
Arthur Webley: Found 'em.
Danny Butterman: He found them.
Nicholas Angel: And what is this?
Danny Butterman: Sea mine.
Arthur Webley: Sea mine.
Nicholas Angel: Well, Mr. Webley this is an extremely dangerous collection, it's a wonder nobody's been hurt before.
Arthur Webley: Nah, just a lot of junk.
[He hits the mine with the butt of his shotgun. With a creak, it slowly tips onto its side and starts ticking softly. The three men exchange a look]
Nicholas Angel: MOVE, MOVE, MOVE!
