Phil: You lookin' for me?
Sharon: Get up. Or are you too yellow to fight a woman today?
Phil: You wanna watch your mouth.
Sharon: Or what? You'll send the heavies round like you did yesterday to Dennis?
Phil: I dunno what you're talking about.
Sharon: That ain't worthy of ya, Phil.
Phil: Sharon, do me a favour. Go home. I got no argument with you.
Sharon: Oh, I think you have. Beating up my brother, that's one thing. But you didn't even have the guts to do it yourself! What's the matter, Phil? Too scared to get your hands dirty?
Phil: I'm scared of *no-one*.
Sharon: Oh, you've got a funny way of showing it.
Phil: You don't know what you're talking about.
Sharon: I know I came to see you this morning as a friend and you told me a bare-faced lie!
Phil: No, I didn't! I told you I never touched him. And that's absolutely true
Sharon: Oh very noble, so long as the words are right! You had Dennis done over on the day I came to wish you and Kate Well! That is *not* the Phil I used to know! That is *not* what I call strong
Phil: Yeah, well you can call it what you want
Sharon: A Mitchell who can't hold his hands up for what he's done? A Mitchell who needs hired help? You'd never catch your Grant being so pathetic; He'd die of shame first!
Phil: Well, you CAN compare us; you was happy to sleep with both of us after all, weren't ya?
[Sharon slaps him, onlooks wince, he retaliates, everyone gasps]
Alfie: There was no need for that!
Jim: Should say so! Wouldn't have happened in my day!
Patrick: You just don't hit a woman you know? Apologise!
Phil: I'm sorry.
Sharon: Oh, Save it, Phil.
Patrick: No, No. Let the man apologise.
Sharon: You know, I even thought I loved you once. But now I can see you for what you are; You're just another East End Wideboy, just another thug!
