Jimmy Porter: They spend their time mostly looking forward to the past.
Osborne quotes
George Dillon: [I]t's easy to answer the ultimate questions it saves you bothering with the immediate ones.
Archie Rice: I'm dead behind these eyes. I'm dead, just like the whole inert, shoddy lot out there. It doesn't matter because I don't feel a thing, and neither do they.

Osborne John quotes
Archie Rice: Don't clap too hard it's a very old building.
Osborne John
This is a letter of hate. It is for you my countrymen, I mean those men of my country who have defiled it. The men with manic fingers leading the sightless, feeble, betrayed body of my country to its death.
John Osborne quotes
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost what it feels about dogs.
John Osborne
Archie Rice: Let me know where you're working tomorrow night and I'll come and see you.
