Aunt Sarah Quote #87
News Anchor: [on TV] Some of the proposed reforms have proved extremely controversial, particularly the early release of paramilitary prisoners. And now, with only days until the referendum takes place, voters across the country must get to grips with this booklet, a 30-page document laying out the Good Friday Agreement in simple terms...
Granda Joe: Simple terms! Simple terms my arse. I've read through thon introduction 30 bloody times. I'm still none the wiser.
Ma Mary: [opens microwave] Wow.
Aunt Sarah: Well, according to Shauna Sharkey, if you vote yes, you're allowed to swing both ways.
Da Gerry: What's that now?
Aunt Sarah: Well, you can be Irish, you can be British, or you can be bi.
Da Gerry: OK, I don't think "bi" is the correct term.
Granda Joe: Says here you can hold both passports.
Ma Mary: Two passports? That'd come in handy. I'm forever losing mine. I think I wouldn't mind being bi, you know.
Quote from James
Michelle: In fact, Cool Runnings is probably one of my favourite films.
Jenny: Right. I haven't seen that one.
Aisling: Me either.
Tomas: Nor me, I'm afraid.
James: We have to leave.
James: They haven't seen Cool Runnings, Michelle. I don't trust these people.
Quote from Granda Joe
Granda Joe: Right, as far as I can make out, this thing has two main aims. Firstly, to stop us all killing one another.
Aunt Sarah: Fair enough.
Granda Joe: And secondly, to allow us to govern ourselves from here, rather than England.
Aunt Sarah: From Derry?
Granda Joe: I would say so.
Da Gerry: Would it not be more likely to be Belfast? Belfast is the capital.
Ma Mary: Aye, but that was an oversight, Gerry.
Quote from Episode One
Sarah: Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm not enjoying this bomb.
Sarah: Disgusting and disgraceful. I have an appointment in Tropicana at 12:00. 15 minutes in the stand up. But sure, I'll not get over the bridge at this rate. It's going to play havoc with my build-up. This is what they want. They want ordinary people to suffer. This is what it's all about.
Erin: I'm pretty sure interfering with your sunbed sessions isn't very high up on anyone's political agenda, Aunt Sarah.
Sarah: I wouldn't be so sure.
Quote from The Concert
News Presenter: [on TV] SDLP leader John Hume has again called for cross party peace talks...
Sarah: John's really dying for peace, like, isn't he? It's all he ever goes on about. I hope it works out for him.
Mary: Aye, I sort of hope it works out for all of us, Sarah.
