Dialogue

Steph: Going to be one of the faces?
Jimmy: What do you mean going to be? I am one of the faces!

Kev: I don't give a monkey's arsehole about the Mods and Rockers. Underneath, we're all the same, aren't we?
Jimmy: No, Kev, that's it. Look, I don't wanna be the same as everybody else. That's why I'm a Mod, see? I mean, you gotta be somebody, ain't ya, or you might as well jump in the sea and drown.

[on Kev's leather jacket]
Jimmy: 'Ere, I never realized.
Kev: Never realized what?
Jimmy: You's a rocker.
Kev: What, am I black or something?
Jimmy: Well you ain't exactly white in that sort of get up, are you?

[Sneaking in late at night, Jimmy finds his mother and father on the couch in front of the TV. Mother is unhappily watching a program while father is passed out next to her.]
Mrs. Cooper (Jimmy's mother): Where you been?
Jimmy: Fell asleep on the train. I wound up in bloody Neasden.
Mrs. Cooper (Jimmy's mother): Ridin' about on them motorbikes all night, I'm not surprised. It's not normal.
Jimmy: Oh, yeah? What's normal, then?

Kev: That's why I joined the army, to be different. But it don't matter where you go, there's always some cunt with stars and stripes wants to tell you what to do.

[Jimmy notices Ace Face working as a bellboy in a hotel.]
Jimmy: Bellboy! BELLBOY!

[Jimmy shouts from the cliff top after deciding not to be a mod.]
Jimmy: Me!
