The Crying Game (1992)
Dil: I'm loud, darling, but never cheap.

Dil: I can take it Jimmy. Just not in the face.

Dil: You gonna tell me what it is?
Jude: What is it?
Dil: Do you know her, Jimmy?
Jude: Jimmy, is it? Do you know me, Jimmy?
Fergus: Dil, this is Jude.
Dil: Are you following me?
Jude: Yeah! Just checking. Is he being nice to you, Dil?
Dil: Ever so nice, aren't you, Jimmy?
Jude: That's good. I'm glad. Young love, as they say?
Dil: Absolutely. The younger the better. Doesn't come YOUR way much, I suppose.
Jude: Don't go looking for it, Dil.
Dil: Well, maybe you'll get lucky... someday.
Jude: Bit heavy on the powder, isn't she?
Dil: A girl has to have a bit of glamour.
Jude: Oh, absolutely. As long as she can keep it. Isn't that right, James?

Dil: He's still looking, Col.
Col: Persistent.
Dil: Good thing in a man.
Col: An excellent quality.
Dil: Maybe he wants something.
Col: I expect he does.
Dil: Ask him!
Col: Ask him yourself!

Dil: What you thinking of, hon?
Fergus: I'm thinking of your man.
Dil: Why?
Fergus: I'm wondering why you keep his things.
Dil: I told you. I'm superstitious.
Fergus: Did he ever tell you you were beautiful?
Dil: All the time. Even now.
Fergus: What do you mean?
Dil: He looks after me. He's a gentleman, too.

Jimmy: What do I do?
Dil: Break his neck. No, don't.

Fergus: The thing is, Dil, you're not a girl.
Dil: Details, baby. Details.

Dil: There. That should make her happy.
Fergus: Who's she?
Dil: Don't know. Who is she?

Fergus: Do they know?
Dil: Know what, honey?
Fergus: Know what I didn't know? And don't call me that.
Dil: Can't help it! A girl has her feelings.
Fergus: Thing is, Dil, you're not a girl.
Dil: Details, baby, details.
Fergus: So they do know?
Dil: Alright, they do.
Fergus: Don't. I should've known, shouldn't I?
Dil: Probably.
Fergus: Kind of wish I didn't.
Dil: You can always pretend.
Fergus: That's true. Your soldier knew, didn't he?
Dil: Absolutely.

Dil: Ask to meet me again, Jimmy.
Fergus: Do you think that's wise?
Dil: Nothing's wise.
Fergus: I didn't mean to hit you.
Dil: I know that.
Fergus: I kind of liked you as a girl.
Dil: Well that's a start.
Fergus: So I'm sorry.
Dil: So make it up to me.
Fergus: How?
Dil: Ask to meet me again.

Fergus: [kisses Dil lightly] Now are you happy?
Dil: Delirious.

Dil: Got you the multivitamins and the iron tablets, hon.
Fergus: Don't call me that.
Dil: Sorry, love. Now, the white ones are magnesium supplement.
Fergus: Stop it, Dil.
Dil: I've got to keep you healthy, Jimmy. I'm counting the days. Two thousand three hundred and thirty-four left.
Fergus: Thirty-five.
Dil: I'm sorry, darling. I keep forgetting the leap year. What am I supposed to call you then, Jimmy?
Fergus: Fergus.
Dil: Fergus. Fergus my love, light of my life.
Fergus: Please, Dil.
Dil: Can't help it. You're doing time for me. No greater love, as the man says. Wish you'd tell me why.
Fergus: As the man said, it's in my nature.

Dil: I'm tired and emotional.

Fergus: What are you doing here?
Dil: Got your note. So let's kiss and make up, honey.
Fergus: Don't call me that.
Dil: Sorry, darling.
Fergus: Stop it, Dil.
Dil: Apologies, my sweet.

[last lines]
Dil: What am I supposed to call you then, Jimmy?
Fergus: Fergus.
Dil: Fergus... Fergus. My love. Light of my life.
Fergus: Please, Dil.
Dil: Can't help it. You're doing time for me. No greater love as the man says. I wish you'd tell me why.
Fergus: As a man said, it's in my nature.
Dil: What's that supposed to mean?
Fergus: Well... there's this scorpion, you see, and he wants to go across a river. Well, he can't swim so he goes to this frog, who naturally enough can swim. And he says,
[imitating the scorpion's voice]
Fergus: "Excuse me, Mr. Froggy. I want to go across the river."
[continues narrating]
Fergus: So the frog accepts the idea. The scorpion hops on the frog's back. Suddenly, the frog: "Aah!" He feels this sting! "You stung me! Why did you go and do that?" The scorpion looks at him and says, "I can't help it, it's in my nature".

Deveroux: [Dil and Fergus are having a conversation] Do it on your own time, Pat.
Fergus: What?
Deveroux: Whatever it is she does for you.
Fergus: I consider that an insult.
Deveroux: Well consider what you like, just get the bloody tart out of here!
Fergus: [getting up angrily] You ever try picking up your teeth with broken fingers?
Deveroux: What's that supposed to mean?
Fergus: Simple question.
[pause]
Fergus: [to Dil] Come on, hon.
Dil: He didn't answer, honey.

Dil: See, I'm not a young thing anymore.
