Peregrine Devlin:
Nothing you can do will sway me from my original judgement.
Edward Lionheart:
Your judgement was ill considered and irresponsible.
Peregrine Devlin:
It was neither. We gave the award to William Woodstock as your performances lacked originality.
Edward Lionheart:
Lacked originality? My Julius Caesar, cut down by a drunken mob in an abandoned warehouse? My Titus Andronicus: this is your dish, Meredith Merridew? My Othello, one of the greatest performances in the history of the theatre?

Transcript:
Perfect. Absolutely perfect.
Thank goodness
no one can get near enough to notice
the dazed, glazed, drunken,
idiotic expression in his eyes.
- You are to obey my orders. Dyou hear?
- Yes, sir.
Now, let us see what that stupid cretin
Mr Meredith Merridew had to say
about my Titus Andronicus.
Mr Lionhearts rendering of the role
can only be described as villainous.
Laid between the delicately
underplayed performances
of Miss Lillywhite as Lavinia
and Miss Mole as Tamora,
one is irresistibly reminded of
a ham sandwich.
My reputation.
Hark, villain!
I will grind your bones to dust,
And make two pasties
of your shameful head.
Now you know what he looks like, so
keep your wits about you and eyes open.
Well, Sergeant, weve got four police cars
in front of Devlins home
and three here at Merridews.
Theyll be bringing him home by
armoured car from work in ten minutes.
That should discourage our Mr Lionheart.
Yeah, whats the next murder, lnspector?
