TRIGGER: Nah, 'salright, this is luminous paint.

DEL BOY: Exactly, Grandad, it's luminous paint and that means you can see in the - LUMINOUS?

TRIGGER: I'm listening to Mozart's Concerto No.5 in D-Minor.

DEL BOY: Okay.

TRIGGER: It's the karaoke version.

SID: How the hell can it be the same bloody broom then?

TRIGGER: Theres the picture. What more proof do you need?

DEL: It's closed!

TRIGGER: Yeah, but not at night!

BOYCIE: Oh turn it up, Del Boy. Trigger couldn't organise a prayer in a mosque.

TRIGGER: I got lost on me way here.

DENZIL: How could you get lost? You've been coming to this pub since you were 16!

TRIGGER: No I found the pub alright. I meant I couldn't find this room. (To Mike) I've been in your dance hall for the last hour.

MIKE: But all the lights are out!

TRIGGER: I know.

BOYCIE: You've been standing in the dark for an hour?

TRIGGER: Yeah I thought we were all gonna jump out and surprise someone.

MIKE: But there was no one else in there.

TRIGGER: But I didn't know that, did I? The lights were out. How you going, Dave?
