Memorable Monologue: High Spirits

[On the phone with Jim Brogan]
"Sir, once again I must remind you that my first name is not 'dick'. Nor is my surname 'face'. It is simply 'Peter'. 'Peter Plunkett'... No, I was not given a middle name but I'm sure if I had, my mother would not have chosen 'shit-for-brains peckerhead'... Well then clearly you know a side to my mother that I have been happily sheltered from. Nevertheless I marvel at your colorfully creative ever so American colloquialisms which flow so trippingly from your razor-like tongue!"

~ Peter O'Toole as Peter Plunkett in High Spritis (1988)
