Memorable dialogue

Denis Rigg: "What is the point you're trying to make?"
Henry Wilks: "I think it's already been made, don't you?"
Denis Rigg: "Well not very clearly, no. So I'm married, so I've got children, so what? I'm ordinary, just like you, just like the Sugdens and I've got work to do here."
Henry Wilks: "Nasty work, Mr Rigg. Frightening people, children, an old woman. Does your wife know? Do your kids know what daddy does at the office, eh? I know your sort. Have you got any friends? Does anybody like you? Do you like anybody else?"
