    Undershaft: Alcohol is a very necessary article. It heals the sick—Barbara: It does nothing of the sort. Undershaft: Well, it assists the doctor: that is perhaps a less questionable way of putting it. It makes life bearable to millions of people who could not endure their existence if they were quite sober. It enables Parliament to do things at eleven at night that no sane person would do at eleven in the morning.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    You don’t know Leonie. She married me to achieve insecurity, and now you’re trying to take it away from her.
    David Mercer, British screenwriter, and Karel Reisz. Morgan (David Warner)
