About Time (2013) Poster

(I) (2013)

Bill Nighy: Dad



  • [Tim has just learned his dad is dying of cancer] 

    Tim : It's just... I though with the time thing...

    Dad : No, I never said we could fix things. I specifically never said that. Life's a mixed bag, no matter who you are. Look at Jesus: he was the son of a God, for God's sake and look how that turned out.

    Tim : I know... You must see I feel a bit cheated.

    Dad : Don't. In fact, feel the opposite. The only people who give up work at 50 are the time travelers with cancer who want to play more table tennis with their sons.

  • [giving his father-of-the-bridegroom speech at Tim and Mary's wedding] 

    Dad : I'd only give one piece of advice to anyone marrying. We're all quite similar in the end. We all get old and tell the same tales too many times. But try and marry someone kind. And this is a kind man with a good heart. I'm not particularly proud of many things in my life, but I am very proud to be the father of my son.

  • Dad : You can't kill Hitler or shag Helen of Troy.

  • Tim : What do you think of her?

    Dad : I like her more than you already.

  • Dad : Life's a mixed bag, no matter who you are.

  • Tim : Oh look! I've forgotten this. Jimmy Fontana, Il Mondo.

    Dad : Greatest record ever recorded by an Italian who looks like he's got a dead badger on his head.
