Shaun: I have to know if she's all right!
Ed: Why?
Shaun: Because I love her!

Shaun: Phillip, you don't have to explain...
Phillip: No, no, I do... I always loved you, Shaun. And I always thought you had it in you to do well. You just need...m-motivation. Somebody to look up to and...I thought it could be me. Would you just... take care of your mum? There's a good boy.
[Phillip dies]
David: We're in a pub! What're we going to do now?
Ed: Get a round in?
Shaun: David, kill the Queen!
David: What?

Shaun: You're a twat!
[Shaun is waiting impatiently through a busy signal on the cordless]
Shaun: Come On!!!!
Ed: Ain't you gonna thank me, then?
Shaun: For what?
Ed: Tidyin' up.
Shaun: [looks about] It doesn't look that tidy.
Ed: [peering at the coffee table, as though the beer cans were the only thing he missed] Well, I had a few beers when I finished.
Ed: Do you want your messages?
Shaun: What?
Ed: Well, your mum rang about you going around tomorrow night, and then Liz rang about the two of you eating out tonight, and then your mum rang back to see if I wanted to eat her out tonight.

Ed: **** off!
Shaun: [Shouts] You **** off! **** ****ing off! Look at me! I've spent my whole life sticking my neck out for you and all you ever do is **** things up! **** things up and make me look stupid! Well, I'm not going to let it happen any more. OK? Not today!!
Liz: Shaun!
Shaun: What?!
[Sees the hundreds of zombies staring at them]
Shaun: Oh.
[David points a gun at the newly deceased Barbara, Shaun breaks a bottle & holds it to David's neck]
[Ed breaks a bottle & holds it to David's neck aswell]
Liz: Ed, don't exacerbate things!
Ed: What does that mean?
Di: This isn't exactly fair!
Ed: Here.
[Ed gives his broken bottle to Di, who points it at Shaun. Ed goes to the bar.]
Di: Thank you.
[Ed returns with a corkscrew, which he points at David's neck.]

Shaun: I do not find it hard to keep my social life and my work life separate.
Worker: Shaun, it's Liz for you.
[Hands him the phone]
Liz: How many shells have we got left?
Shaun: Um...two. I suppose we could, you know, take a few of them out if they stand in a line.
Liz: I wasn't thinking about them.
Shaun: I know.
Shaun: What about Ed? There's only two shells.
Ed: I don't mind being eaten.
Shaun: How're we gonna do this?
Liz: Um...I don't know. Um...One of us has to go first.
Shaun: Well, m-m-maybe one should do the other, and then do themselves.
Liz: Oh, maybe you should do me. I'll only muck it up if I have to do myself.
[Shaun mimes shooting Liz and then shooting himself]
Shaun: You know, I don't think I've got it in me to shoot my flatmate, my mum, and my girlfriend all in the same evening.
Liz: [Thoughtfully] What makes you think I'm taking you back?
Shaun: [Tenderly] Well, you don't want to die single, do you?
Ed: That's it, I would like to be shot.
Liz: Goodbye, Ed. Love you.
Ed: Cheers!
Shaun: I love you too, Ed.
Ed: Gaaayy!
Ed: See? You don't need Liz to have a good time.
Shaun: Oh, don't, man.
Ed: No! Go ahead, look at me. Can I just say one more thing? I'm not gonna say, you know, there's plenty more fish in the sea. I'm not going to say if you love her, let her go. And I'm not going to bombard you with cliches. But what I will say is this...
Ed: It's not the end of the world.
[zombie's hand beats on the door]
[During a stand-off, when David tries to shoot the recently-deceased Barbara]
David: You know I'm right, Liz. She's going to come back, and she's going to kill all of us. That's what your ex can't seem to realize!
Shaun: [Tearfully] That's what this is about, isn't it? It's just he doesn't like me! He's always hated me, and now he wants to shoot my mum!
David: She's not - !
Shaun: You never thought I was good enough, that I deserved her!
David: What are you talking about?
Shaun: Oh come on! We all know you're in love with Liz!
David: [Stung] That is not true!
Shaun: Yes it is!
David: That is not true!
Dianne: Yes it is.
David: What?!
Dianne: I know that you only hung around with me in college to be close to Liz, and when she knocked you back I was there to pick up the pieces. I've come to terms with that, Daffs. Why can't you?
David: Lizzy, I want you to know that my feelings for you have always been -
Liz: David, please! We have slightly more pressing concerns right now!

[Indicates Hand movement of sex] "Caf? au lait" [Moans and points at Shaun] "Pour Vous"

[repeated line.] **** it!

[repeated line.] That was the second album I ever bought!

[repeated line.] Two seconds.

As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "i" in meat pie. Meat is the anagram of team... I don't know what he's talking about.

Can I get any of you ****s a drink?


Don't forget to kill Phillip!
