Stan: 'ere let me ask you something, who's in charge here?

Vince Pinner: Go on, Stan. I ain't heard this one.

Stan: You are the assistant manager, I make the decisions.

Vince Pinner: Stanley, so far today you've decided to turn down good business, give fraud a bad name, and to accept a bet on an elephant race. In my opinion you are to bookmaking what Wayne Sleep is to rugby league. No offence.

Penny Warrender: The very first night we met you tried your luck.

Vince Pinner: Nothing happened between us for a long time.

Penny Warrender: Only because I wouldn't allow it. I'd known you for exactly one hour. You'd bought me a coca-cola and tried to undo my bra. I can remember thinking "I'm glad I didn't order a Bacardi with it".

Penny Warrender: It isn't an easy decision. My future hangs in the balance. I can either accept the company's offer, build a career, travel, have total fulfillment and enjoyment of life... or I can marry Vince.

Penny Warrender: I haven't decided yet.

Daphne Warrender: Norman, will you speak to her?

Daphne Warrender: What kind of a future would you have with "Thing"? He's an idle, itinerant worker drifting from job to job always on the edge of legality - an ice cream vendor, a used car salesman, and now a bookie.

Penny Warrender: One day Vince will inherit the family business.

Daphne Warrender: That's something to look forward to, isn't it? One day your husband will manage a few scrap metal yards!

Penny Warrender: No he wont. He intends to sell them.

Daphne Warrender: How much do you think he'll get for that?

Penny Warrender: Well, according to his father, at the last audit, they were valued at two and a half million pounds.

Norman Warrender: [shocked] Two and a half million?

Penny Warrender: [smugly] Yes.

Daphne Warrender: [after a long pause] Well, I've said everything I'm going to say. You must do as you think fit, darling.

[Penny is cuddling up to Vince on the sofa]

Penny Warrender: [tenderly and seductively] I used to dream about you. I used to dream about your body.

Vince Pinner: [surprised] Did you?

Penny Warrender: [laughing] I used to dream the police came round and asked me to identify it!

[Les is telling Vince about a villain that he stood up to]

Les Pinner: He used to be an enforcer for the Kray Brothers - till they sacked him for being too aggressive. He knew I was earning and he wanted his cut. Now unlike you, Vincent, I ain't never been a fighting man. But I knew I had a straight choice. I either paid him what he wanted and had him on my back for the rest of my natural, or I fronted him out. And that's what I did. I was scared, petrified, but I stood up to him. And do you know what? I discovered I had an inner strength. It was as if it weren't me fighting - it was another feller, stronger than me, who had no fear. Every blow was considered in a calm and clinically violent way. George Fimbo never came near or by that yard again.

Vince Pinner: And were you hurt?

Les Pinner: Hurt? Three months in a convalescent home, eighteen months before I could walk without a stick!
