Quotes

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Oh, I gotta get home. Who's paying for my bus fare today?

Richard Dent QC: You don't need to worry about that now, witness.

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Well excuse me, I am worried about it! I'm on medication, you know? Gotta pick up me methadone before five, otherwise I don't get nothing 'til the morning. 'Scuse me, your honor, do you know who's paying for my bus fare today?

Judge: Mr. Dent, has the witness been afforded appropriate expenses?

Richard Dent QC: Sir, I'm informed those instructing me will arrange a check in payment of Mr. Spitieri's witness expenses directly.

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: A check? Well, what am I gonna do with a check, your honor? I don't want a fucking check. Me bus driver's not going to take a check. I need me bus money, otherwise how am I supposed to get home?

Judge: Yes, alright Mr. Spitieri. Mr. Dent, I wonder whether, in the circumstances, some appropriate arrangements couldn't be made?

Richard Dent QC: To avoid further delays, I'll get Mr. Toole to fix that up now.

[Mr. Toole pulls a bill from his wallet and gives it to Mr. Dent who gives it to Spit]

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Oh, that's only $20. Me bus doesn't come 'til four, I'm gonna need some lunch.

Judge: I think perhaps, in the circumstances, the witness is entitled to be reimbursed for his luncheon expenses, Mr. Dent.

Richard Dent QC: I'll get Mr. Toole to give him another $20 to cover his luncheon expenses.

[Mr. Toole looks in his wallet, but it's empty. He shrugs at Mr. Dent, who sighs and pulls a bill from his own wallet and gives it to Spit]

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Thank you.

[He sits down and folds his hands, looking smug]

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: I told you, mate: I don't remember names and stuff like that. Oh... oh, I do remember there was an old bloke, Warren, who used to drink down at the Oxford in Petersham, but, mate, I don't know what his second name was.

Richard Dent QC: I was referring to the accountant on the Gold Coast.

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: What, you were referring Warren to an accountant?

Richard Dent QC: No.

Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Oh, mate, old Warren wouldn't need an accountant, mate, he's just an old pisshead. Don't know where you're getting your info from. Old Warren'd be dead by now, wouldn't he?
