Joseph Donnelly: Shag off, the pair of you. There's a goat over there. Go improve your love life.

[Joe Donnelly dies]

Danty Duff: God bless your soul... poor Joe Donnelly...

[everyone is quiet, they turn and Joe comes back to life]

Joseph Donnelly: All saints preserve us! We thought you died, Da!

Joe Donnelly: I did son, I passed away... I've come back to tell you something. You're an especially odd boy.

Joseph Donnelly: You came back from the dead to tell me that I'm odd?

Joseph Donnelly: Tell me! Tell me ya like my hat!

Joseph Donnelly: I'm not going to a distant world. I'm of Ireland, and I'll stay in Ireland until I die!

Coniff: I think the prettiest girl in this factory, the one with the prettiest eyes, and the prettiest red hair, is Joseph's sister - if you don't mind me saying so Joseph.

Flynn: [to Shannon] Get to work!

Shannon Christie: Get your filthy hands off me you ugly animal!

Flynn: That'll cost you a day's wage. Go ahead. Insult me again.

Shannon Christie: [weakly] Pig.

[women laugh]

Flynn: There goes tomorrow. Done?

Shannon Christie: [looks over to Joseph, who jestures "No! Work!", returns to work, but spins around] Take Friday as well, you spineless little fraction of a man.

Joseph Donnelly: [laughs and smiles] Bite lads. Bite.

Joseph Donnelly: You're a corker, Shannon. What a corker you are.

Joseph Donnelly: [about Grace] Grace isn't a tramp. She's a dancer in the Burley-cue.

Shannon Christie: That's not dancing. That's kicking her knickers up. I suspect if you asked her to, she'd kick her knickers off.

Joseph Donnelly: Oh, maybe she would.

Shannon Christie: Has she?

Joseph Donnelly: Let me see... I'm trying to remember.

Shannon Christie: Well, think hard! If there's any brains left in your head!
