Quotes Richard Dent QC: Warren Halliwell. I'm asking you if you've ever heard of Warren Halliwell.
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?
Richard Dent QC: I am not talking about your friend from Petersham, Mr. Spitieri. I am talking about Warren Halliwell the accountant who practices on the Gold Coast.
Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: ...Yeah...
Richard Dent QC: You know Warren Halliwell, don't you?
Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: ...Yeah... if he used to drink at the Oxford at Petersham I do, mate, but dead set he didn't look like an accountant to me.
Richard Dent QC: No, I'm not saying he was an accountant.
Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Yes you did, you said it then.
Richard Dent QC: No.
Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Yes you did, mate. Oh, you keep doing it, you're trying to confuse me. Hey, what'd old Warren do wrong, mate? What're you hassling him for? He's done nothing wrong, he's just an old pisshead.
Richard Dent QC: I am not talking about your friend Warren.
Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Oh, well what the fuck are you talking about? Oh, I'd better go home, my bus goes at four o'clock. 'Scuse me, who's paying for my bus fare today?
Richard Dent QC: I put it to you that on August the 26th last year, you delivered approximately $200,000 in cash to the office of Warren Halliwell.
Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri: Oh, mate, 200? Do I look like I got 200 grand in cash? I'm on the bones of me ass, mate!
