Frances Shea Quotes:

  • Frances Shea: God doesn't ask if we accept this life. There is no choice. Life is forced upon you. The only choice is how we live it. Or not. That's a choice as well.

  • Frances Shea: You could go straight...

    Reggie Kray: Life isn't always what we want it to be.

  • [first lines]

    Frances Shea: London in the 1960s. Everyone had a story about the Krays. You could walk into any pub to hear a lie or two about them. But I was there and Im not careless with the truth. They were brothers, but bound by more than blood. They were twins as well, counterparts. Gangster princes of the city they meant to conquer. Ron Kray was a one-man London mob. Bloodthirsty, illogical, and funny as well. My Reggie was different. Once in a lifetime do you find a street-fighting man like Reg. Believe me when I say it took a lot of love for me to hate him the way I do.

  • Frances Shea: [narrating] Reggie once said, "The centre of the world could be anywhere you like."Even here, in the East End of London. The world is quite like London. It's not good, it's not bad, it just is. There's no morality or dishonour, just your own lonely code. Until your race is run. Until the end. Until we're all just ghosts of the people we once thought we were.

  • Reggie Kray: My loyalty to my brother is how I measure myself

    Frances Shea: What about your loyalty to me?

  • Frances Shea: A cup of tea can solve anything. Bit under the weather? Tea. You left you husband? Tea is the answer.

  • Frances Shea: What do you, after all, when the only person that can ever get to you is gone? cup of tea? I don't think so.

  • Ronald Kray: ...And I'm staring at the back of this geezer's head. Drilling him with my eyes. The whole time thinking "Give Ron Kray your sausage. Give Ron your fucking sausage." Until, I'm not thinking it anymore; I'm broadcasting , through his skull and into his brain. 'Til he looks back at me and says "Ron, do you fancy my sausage? I've got no appetite this morning."

    [pauses to let it sink in]

    Ronald Kray: Interesting...

    Frances Shea: [Voice Over] When my future brother-in-law said "Interesting", it meant he had no fucking idea what he, you or anybody else was talking about.

  • Frances Shea: [narrating] We honeymooned in Greece. The Parthenon had stood for 2,400 years. Reggie's promise to go straight lasted two weeks.

  • Ronald Kray: We both love him, all right? We both made the effort. So we shall just have to see what happens when we get there.

    Frances Shea: Where?

    Ronald Kray: Heaven.

  • Frances Shea: Aristocrats and criminals have a lot in common. They're both selfish, get bored easily, and have access to wads of cash they didn't have to work honestly to get.

  • Frances Shea: [to Ron] You know, one of these days, Ron Kray, your miserable life will swallow you whole.

  • Frances Shea: [it's raining into her convertible] Help me put the top on.

    Reggie Kray: Oh, I'm not sure I can help you.

    Frances Shea: Reggie, please, it's going to get ruined.

    Reggie Kray: I can't, can I? I'm a club owner. You know what I mean? I can pick a nice model, all right, in a nice colour, but I'm not very good at anything else. I'm not a mechanic, am I? I'm more of a... a gangster,

  • Reggie Kray: Frankie, come home.

    Frances Shea: I *am* home. At least until I find somewhere else. I can't go and live with my mum.

    Reggie Kray: What can I do to change your mind? You can't. I've changed my mind about one thing, though. What's that? I do want you to remember me. Always. That I existed, that I once walked beside you.
