Withnail & I (1987) Poster


Anthony Wise: Policeman 2


  • [Withnail has been pulled over by the police for speeding down the motorway in the beat-up Jaguar] 

    First Policeman : Bit early in the morning for festivities, isn't it?

    Withnail : [gesturing at the wine bottles and Marwood in the back]  These aren't mine, they belong to him.

    First Policeman : You're drunk.

    Withnail : I assure you I'm not, officer. Honestly. I've only had a few ales.

    First Policeman : Out of the car. Please? Sir?

    [the policeman opens the door and Withnail nearly falls out. He gets out and leans against the side of the car. The other policeman pulls out a plastic bag with a nozzle at the top] 

    First Policeman : I want you to take one deep breath and fill this bag.

    [Withnail shakes his head] 

    First Policeman : Are you refusing to fill this bag?

    Withnail : I most certainly am.

    First Policeman : [gripping Withnail's sleeve]  I'm placing you under arrest.

    Withnail : Don't be ridiculous, I haven't done anything. Look here, my cousin's a QC!

    Policeman Two : [high-pitched voice]  GET-IN-THE-BACK-OF-THE-VAN!
