  • [Duncan talks with Susanna. Owen and Roddy see him, and are impressed. Owen talkes via the PA system]

    Owen: Please report to the Administrative Offices International. Duncan, please report to the Administrative Offices International. I have to announce it over the PA as my voice won't carry that far. My throat suffered major damage during an intense make-out session with Lewis' mom. She has a forked tongue and a touch of the herpes.

    Lewis: [annoyed] I don't have a mom. I have two dads. In your face.

    Owen: Hurry, hurry.

    Duncan: [to Sussanna] Hold on a second.

    [Susanna nods. Duncan approaches Owen and Roddy]

    Owen: Please. Hurry up. This is pressing, pressing. Urgent. I can't tell you how pressing. You can't fathom how pressing. How's it going? What's up? Did you need something?

    Duncan: No.

    Owen: Who's that, big guy?

    Duncan: Just a girl.

    [Owen and Roddy chuckle]

    Roddy: You stallion, you!

    Duncan: I don't know. She's older than me.

    [Owen and Roddy are even more impressed]

    Roddy: So... what are you doing over here talking to us and not over there, sealing the deal with that cougar?

    Duncan: [smiles] Well, maybe, Roddy, if you guys hadn't called me over here...

    OwenRoddy: [chuckle] Oooo!

    [Duncan returns to Susanna]

    Owen: [talks on the PA system] Return to your lady friend. Duncan, please return to your lady friend. Please let her know that this conversation was entirely about her. In other news, this is very awkward for you.

  • Roddy: Fact is... we're not dog-killers. What's the worst thing we actually achieved? Kidnapping a pot plant. There's our fatal flaw. At heart, we're nice guys.

  • Roddy: All right. Settle down, you lot. Settle down. William Wordsworth. Wordsworth was, of course, the first of the Romantics to use a MacBook Pro.

  • Roddy: [Addressing his class] ... which is why Shakespeare never left New York again. Okay, um, chapter 21. Uh, read it or... be punished.

    Roddy: [Answering his phone] Yo.

    Tom Duval: [On the phone] He's only gone and changed the ending.

    Roddy: [Over the phone] Wow. All you did was change her title, and she thought you were a complete wanker.

    Roddy: [Addressing his class] That's "Juan Kerr." He was a 19th century South American revolutionary.

  • Roddy: [to Nicola] Right, you ready? Go on. Just do it.

    [Calling out to his students]

    Roddy: Okay, pay attention, class. Pay attention!

    Nicola Ball: [to the students] Jane Lockhart, of course, follows Charlotte Brontë as only the second writer in English to design and build her own hovercraft.

    Roddy: [Over-enunciating] Hovercraft. H-O-V-E-R-C-R-A-F-T.

    Roddy: [to Nicola] See? They believe anything you tell them.

  • [first lines]

    Tom Duval: Roddy! School...

    Roddy: [walks in partly dressed] Morning.

  • Tom Duval: Being happy, she is unable to finish her latest miserable novel.

    [walking together]

    Tom Duval: So, in order to help her, the selfless publisher embarks on a course of action - to return her to the fragile mental state in which she wrote her highly profitable debut.

    Roddy: You want to make Jane Lockhart's life a misery so she'll finish writing her book? That's seriously messed up. Do they teach you this stuff in France?

    Tom Duval: We study a broad curriculum. So, how do we make someone completely totally miserable?

    Roddy: Why are you asking me? I've dedicated the last ten years to encouraging young minds, planting hope and aspiration...

    [suddenly distracted by a student]

    Roddy: Benson, put it away! Stand in the corner! Face to the wall! Little shite.

    [back to Tom]

    Roddy: ... Okay, maybe I have some experience in the field...

  • [last lines]

    Roddy: [grading papers] This is really pathetic. Who is this? Jimmy Miller. Should I know him? One hundred pages of the bullshit. One hundred pages.

    [looking through the stack]

    Roddy: I'm not even going to read his. Caitlin doesn't turn up most of the time. Hasn't even put his name on the front cover. Who is this meant to be? Well I can tell by his handwriting it's Paul's. If Paul thinks he can just draw pictures and I'll know what he's trying to say, he's got another thing coming. They're all the same, aren't they? Shona Westwood. What does she want? There's nothing in this, is there? Hasn't even bothered to do it.

  • Vivian Miller: Jesus, Roddy, what the hell?

    Roddy: That's how my mother used to greet me.

  • Roddy: A toy to end all toys.
