Quotes

William Andrew Philip Bodie: They fed 'em on tarantula legs for three weeks. Right? That failed. So then they tried a diet of twenty-four-hour, non-stop, pop music.
Raymond Doyle: To a cageful of rats?
William Andrew Philip Bodie: Yeah. There was rock, disco, punk. You know, the whole hit parade.
Raymond Doyle: Then what happened?
William Andrew Philip Bodie: They all went gay.
Raymond Doyle: [laughs] A cageful of gay rats?
William Andrew Philip Bodie: It's straight, honest. You don't believe me, do you?
Raymond Doyle: No, are you kidding?
William Andrew Philip Bodie: That's a fact. Honest. Queer as a three-pound note.
