My Beautiful Laundrette (1985)
Gordon Warnecke: Omar
Omar : You know who I saw today? Johnny. Johnny!
Papa : The boy who came here dressed as a fascist with a quarter-inch of hair?
Omar : He was a friend once, for years.
Papa : There were times when he didn't deserve your admiration so much.
Omar : Christ, I've known him since I was five!
Papa : He went too far.
Omar : Where did you go? You just disappeared.
Johnny : Drinking, I went. With my old mates. It ain't illegal.
Omar : Of course it is, laundrettes are a big commitment. Why aren't you at work?
Johnny : It'll be closing time soon. You'll be locking the place up, and coming to bed.
Omar : No, it never closes. One of us has got to be there. That way, we begin to make money.
Johnny : You're getting greedy.
Omar : I want big money. I'm not going to be beat down by this country.
Omar : When we were in school, you and your friends were kicking me around the place. And what are you doing now? Washing my floor and that's how I like it.
Papa : You must be getting married. Why else would you be dressed like an undertaker on holiday?
Omar : Going to Uncle's house, Papa. He's given me a car.
Papa : What? The brakes must be faulty. Tell me one thing because there's something I don't understand, though it must be my fault. How is it that scrubbing cars can make a son of mine look so ecstatic?
Omar : It gets me out of the house.
Papa : Don't get too involved with that crook. You've got to study. We are under siege by the white man. For us education is power.
[Omar shakes his head at his father]
Papa : Don't let me down.
Johnny : [driving Cherry and Salim home, Omar stops by a bunch of street kids, one of whom is Johnny. Omar gets out of the car to talk to Johnny]
[indicating his friends]
Johnny : Like me friends?
Omar : Ring us then.
Johnny : I will.
[indicates the car where Cherry is getting very angry]
Johnny : Leave 'em there. We can do something. Now. Just us.
