The Lair of the White Worm (1988)
Hugh Grant: Lord James D'Ampton
[James is driving with Angus, whom appears transformed at this point, along a country road]
Lord James D'Ampton : So... who was that on the phone back there? Was it the hospital?
Angus Flint : [gruff voice] Hospital?
Lord James D'Ampton : Yeah, was it about the girls and any updates on them?
Angus Flint : No. It wasn't the girls.
Lord James D'Ampton : Oh. Say... I'm famished. Before we go to the hospital to see the girls, do you want to stop some place for a bite?
Angus Flint : [wickely smirks] Why not?
Lord James D'Ampton : Perfect.
Lord James D'Ampton : No, the common earthworm was not always the lowly creatures it is today. Remember that the next time you bisect one with your shovel. You want some more?
[offering a spoonful]
Angus Flint : Mmmm. It's very tasty!
Lord James D'Ampton : Oh, good! So you've taken to our local specialty. Pickled earthworms in aspic is not to everyone's taste, I can tell you.
Lord James D'Ampton : But only nutty pot-holers go down there. It's supposed to be dangerous as hell.
Eve Trent : I know that!
Lord James D'Ampton : Do you want me to drive you over?
Eve Trent : [shakes her head] There's no point now. Besides, it's too late, we'll never catch up with them. I'll just have a lie down until they get back.
Lord James D'Ampton : Right. Yeah, I'm a bit tired myself. How could you keep me up all night?
[kisses her neck]
Lord James D'Ampton : Dancing, for God's sake.
Eve Trent : [rearing backwards, gasping] I remember now! After I passed out! I remember! A serpent! A horrible thing! Towering above me! Curled around the crucifix!
Lord James D'Ampton : Was it white? Like the one in the yard?
Eve Trent : What?
Lord James D'Ampton : Just relax. Was it like the one in the excavation?
Eve Trent : There's no snake there! What do you mean?
Lord James D'Ampton : Okay, come with me.
[reaches for her hand]
Eve Trent : [panicking] No!
Lord James D'Ampton : Come on, it's just a little snake, it can't harm you. It's very important you see it.
