From Withnail & I (1987)
[Withnail has been pulled over by the police for speeding down the motorway in the beat-up Jaguar]
First Policeman: Bit early in the morning for festivities, isn't it?
Withnail: [gesturing at the wine bottles and Marwood in the back] These aren't mine, they belong to him.
First Policeman: You're drunk.
Withnail: I assure you I'm not, officer. Honestly. I've only had a few ales.
First Policeman: Out of the car. Please? Sir?
[the policeman opens the door and Withnail nearly falls out. He gets out and leans against the side of the car. The other policeman pulls out a plastic bag with a nozzle at the top]
First Policeman: I want you to take one deep breath and fill this bag.
[Withnail shakes his head]
First Policeman: Are you refusing to fill this bag?
