Mark: I always end up talking for hours to some boring prat everyone else is avoiding.

Becky: It's only fair - so does he!

Mark: I'm in serious danger of flooding the place. Don't come in, you could get washed away! I have some rather dodgy plumbing.

Alison: Have you seen a doctor?

My wife left me, she said I thought more about my work than her... or was that my boss?

Mark Taylor (Robert Bathurst)
