Quotes from the Film:
Jimmy Rabbitte, Sr.: "Is this the band then? Betcha U2 are shittin' themselves"
Jimmy: "Do you not get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe. And Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland. And the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin. So say it once, say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud".
Jimmy: What do you call yourselves?
Derek: "And And And."
Jimmy: "And And fuckin' And?"
Derek: Well, Ray's thinking of putting an exclamation mark after the second "and." Says it'd look deadly on the posters.
Outspan: You don't like it? You think it should go at the end?
Jimmy: I think it should go up his arse.
Outspan: Well, we're not married to it.
Billy: And you... George Michael... you ever call me a fuckin' eejit again, you'll go home with the drumsticks stuck up your hole... the one you don't sing out of.
Deco: That'll be the day.
Billy: I'm tellin' ya it's coming, so keep your Vaseline handy.
Joey: Look, I know you're hurtin' now, but in time you'll realize what you've achieved.
Jimmy: I've achieved nothing!
Joey: You're missin' the point. The success of the band was irrelevant - you raised their expectations of life, you lifted their horizons. Sure we could have been famous and made albums and stuff, but that would have been predictable. This way it's poetry.
Jimmy: What do you play?
Failed Drug Buyer: I used to play football in school.
Jimmy: I mean, what instrument?
Failed Drug Buyer: I don't.
Jimmy: What are you doing here, then?
Failed Drug Buyer: Well, I saw everyone else lining up, so, uh - I thought you were selling drugs
Rock Salmon Man: Excuse me, would you have any Rock Salmon?
Dean Fay: No, I'm sorry - we only have "Soul"!
