Are you broke? The bank manager wants to talk to you.
-Nah, no. It's a bit of a dip.
===
Get some sleep, like the bold girl you are.
===
I'm in training here.
-Yeah, for what -- "Swan Lake"? Put him down. Get back to the bag before you hurt yourself.
===
Looks like another murky one out there, folks. The cays are awash. The main streets are windswept. The backstreets hold no shelter from the storm. So wrap and keep warm. Or else stay indoors and listen to moi and the sound of the South.
===
No need to be jealous of him.
-I'm not.
Wrong answer.
===
Your wife, Maureen. She lives in the Isle of Man.
- Gone.
But not forgotten.
===
I-I thought we turned a corner in this country.
-Yeah. If I had a penny for every time I heard that one.
===
Oh, God, she's the spit of her mother.
-"Oh, thank God for that," says you.

Danny, Danny, Danny. The pipes. The pipes are calling, boy. Now, what's that supposed to mean?
===
They sucked us dry and then hung us out in the open for the whole world to see.
-The banks, is it? You kept your hands clean.
When I think of all the sacrifices people made, all the hardships they endured And for what? So these fellas at the top could wine and dine till dawn.
-I don't know. But you did all right out of it, though, right?
I'm not talking about me, Ben. I'm talking about the ordinary hardworking people who got hammered along the way. All the ones who had nothing and gave everything.
-Yeah.
I'm sure your father -- God be good to him -- worked himself into an early grave, so he did. Then your poor mother. On her hands and knees, boy. Her hands and knees!
===
What's the story with Long John?
-He's gone fishing.

Corrina, we need to natter. Nobody there? Obviously. All right. Talk later.
===
Yes, that's right -- a tiger kidnapping.
===
He told me you tried to kill him.
-Too right we did.
===
Any joy?
-No, nothing.
Oh, the long arm of the law, huh?
-What's going on?
We're on the hop, Sammy.
===
I want you to be happy and contented and …
-And normal. Go on and say it. You want me to be normal.
Safe. I just want you to be safe.
===
Every day's a party to them lads.

Things were different then, Tom. A safe pair of hands was a good thing to be before that "to hell with the consequences" brigade arrived.
===
Evaluate, liquidate, and vacate -- Is that the drill? Desi Rane, huh? Jesus, he's like a rock around me neck.
===
Come on, you spanner.
-Your ma's a spanner.
===
Listen, don't worry about it. I'll be out of everyone's hair soon enough. Don't worry.
-I don't want you out of my hair! That's the point!
===
I know I messed up. But I did this for you. I did this for our family,
===
I have plans, Noel.
-Have you, now? I've got plans, too, Eddie. And unfortunately, they don't include you.
===
Sometimes it's good to hold your whist.

Well, the way I look at it is, you either deal with it or go under. I mean, the nervous system is a very complex thing. Annette, for instance, is constantly on edge, day and night. I mean, her nerves were always a jangle long before this even happened. Jenny, of course, is another matter. I mean, I don't even want to go there.
===
No customer service here, no?
-Depends on what you're buying. I won't know that until you sell it to me.
===
Pomegranate.
- What?
Fruit of the dead.
===
What is it between me and you anyway? We're like two drunks dancing in the snow. I go left, and you go right. Maybe we're the yin and yang of each other, Frank. The yin and yang, boy.
-No, I don't think so, Desi. 'Cause you're not the other side of anything, as far as I can see, and you're definitely not the other side of me.

What is it?
-Vodka. Come on, have a taste.
This could get you in real trouble.
-Me in trouble? You're the one drinking it.
It's Water.
-That's a miracle.
===
You do a bit of refereeing up there, don't you?
- Yeah.
BBS
- Huh.
Break, box, stop.
-Pardon?
"Break," "box,” “stop" -- the only three words that the referees are allowed to say.
===
I'm not condoning what he done, but sometimes lads are talked into things, you know. They're led astray 'cause they're easily led, these lads, you know? Well, you know, they're there for the taking, like.
-That might very well be the case, Ben, but this lad you're talking about is gonna have to learn the meaning - of the word "repercussion.

I wish we could run away somewhere. Somewhere warm with blue skies and mountains. Far away from here.
-You mean like a holiday? You want to go on a holiday. Your life already is a holiday, Corrina. What are you running away from? Your big house? Your comfy bed? Yeah? This is my town. I don't belong anywhere else but here. You want to head somewhere? Be my guest. Yeah, head for the hills.
Without you?
-Corrina I've never ended up on the right side of anything in my life, and I have no reason to believe that this time is gonna be any different. So, yeah, Without me.
===
I've known Ed Banner since he was that high, Tom. He was a prick then, and dead or alive, he's still a prick now.
===
I suppose you don't really know what's going on in a man's head, do you?
-What's going on, Frank? What do you mean? With the world, I mean.
I'll tell you what's going on. Them that have it gets to keep it. That's what's going on.

That's the trouble with you fellas. You all want to eat the omelet, but none of you want to break the eggs.
===
What are you up to, boy?!
"Full Metal Jacket," Sammy. Ever see that film? Boulders, craters, bodies all over the place and all, you know. Lads crawling through the mud, slithering like snakes on their bellies.
===
A hero does what's right and stands his ground. You don't run away at the first sign of trouble. You don't just bail out on everybody. James Connolly -- hero. Patrick Pearse -- hero. Michael Collins -- hero. Eamon de Valera -- hero.
===
Yes, the James Connolly stamp.
- That's the one.

The four just need a good home.
-No, I have the other three.
You have them?
That's right, yeah. Pearse, Collins, and de Valera.
===
How do I look?
-Like you have the mumps.

To grass you mean?
-To cooperate.
That's between him and the law, Ben. As far as I'm concerned, he's already banished from the garden whoever he is and wherever he is.
===

People let you down, you know? You can't trust no one. I mean, they're all sweetness and light to your face, but look the other way, and they'll gamble for your clothes.
-People are just people, Phillip (aka “Snowy”) doing their best.
===
I just don't see why you can't be happy for me, that's all. Celebrate and appreciate what I've achieved instead of always …
-But, look, if you're happy here I am happy here. Anyway, I do appreciate what you've achieved. You're the one who questions it.
What do you mean?
- Ah, you're always worried about what other people think. You can't control what other people think, Desmond. It was the same after your daddy died -- forever wondering what everyone made of us.
Yeah. Well, it was hard on me.
-It was hard on all of us.
I know that. I'm not saying that.
-Well, What, then?

I don't know! I mean … Watching you on all fours, backing your way out of some building or other, and I'd have to cross the street to get away from you in case you'd blow my cover, the Belvedere boy. And then later on in the fxcking Fountainhead Club when I'd see you there in the kitchen like Mrs. Mop. Well, I was ashamed of you, all right? Ashamed of what you were, of what you did, of what you had to do.
===

Is it asking too much to be liked? Or loved? I mean, even the way you say my name -- Annette -- like you're talking to a stranger, like you're explaining something to a stranger.
===
You see, Noel, I'm the one holding the royal flush here. You and Frank Mallon are the ones with a hand like a foot.
-I'm not going down for this. I can tell you that now for nothing. Now I'm gonna do whatever it is that I have to do.
That's the spirit. As long as you're not expecting me to wipe your ass while you're doing it! Ha!

Things don't always go as planned and certainly true for those entangled in a crime committed in Wexford, a small coastal Irish town where everybody knows everybody. All along, something was a bit off but well explained in the final episode. Thoughtful thriller with desperate ordinary and colorful characters. No "clean break" for anyone in S1, perhaps in S2. The oldie ballad “The Old Woman from Wexford” played at the end credit is perfect for this cautionary story during trying times. See “Quotes” for its lyrics. and Video at:
