And I forgot just how BRILLIANT it is!!!
OMG... Begbie just did the total meltdown in the bar scene. Such great quotes. "He's a psycho... but what can you do? He's a mate."
So Billy played Spud and Sick Boy, variously, right? God help us!!! *LOL*! *dying watching bizarro Spud*
And the rant...
"Tommy: Doesn't it make you proud to be Scottish?
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched miserable servile pathetic trash that was ever shat on civilization. Some people hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to get colonized by. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a shite state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and all the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference!"
I still remember the parts I couldn't stand, though... the toilet scene... the baby (you read the book... what happened to it? they just forgot it?)... so horrible to take. *shudders*
