Notable dialogueEdit

Raquel Wolstenhulme (describing something on a television documentary she watched): "Well you know if you take a mirror and stick it up your nose? like dividing your face.., and yer look into another mirror, you can sort of make one big face out of half of your face. So, well.... one of them's more what your face would be if you was a man, and the other's more what it would be if you was a woman... if you weren't already sorta' thing. So when you fall for somebody, what you're seeing... I mean you don't realise it but, what you're seeing - now hang on a minute 'cos this bit's complicated - you see the face made up of the halves that they'd be if that person were the same sex that you are. So what it is is yer see, your brain is sort of imagining, if you know what I mean, and if your brain sees that person (unconsciously) as being the sort of person that you think you like yourself, then you'll fancy that person, and... well, it's as simple as that."
