Oz: Really?
Wyman: Well, they do bother you. But it's not fatal.

[Barry describes his emotional reunion with Tatiana]
Oz: Did you slip her a length?
Barry: Oz! Really!
Oz: But did you?
Barry: Yes, I did actually.

Au Revoir: Part 2

Oz: Well, as far as huts go, I think we've reached rock bottom with this one. No beds, big bugs, no bog and a bamboo roof.
Mozey: Yeah, 'cause they've been improving over the years haven't they, the huts? The one in Vientiane was borderline house.

[The lads are caught up as hostages]
Wyman: Did you see Barry?
Oz: Aye
Wyman: How is he?
Oz: Bombed out on opium is how he is.
Neville: Aye?
Moxey: Opium?
Oz: Aye, weeeell, opium oot here's like marmite back home, there's a jar in every hoose.

Oz: I'm used to bullshit, but I've never laid bricks with it.

[An urgent diversion is needed]
Oz: Dennis! Say that again and I'll knock your bloody block off!
Dennis: What?!
Oz: What you said man, about my Marjorie!
Dennis: Ohhhhh right! I meant that!
Oz: Did you?!
Dennis: Aye, I did!
[Dennis and Oz break out fighting]

[The lads can't wait to get away after the rescue]
Dennis: Hey! Hang on a minute! We're forgetting something aren't we? We haven't finished this yet, man! These villagers aren't going anywhere and we promised them a wash house.
Barry: I totally agree with Dennis. We can't leave them in the lurch. Plus, they've been extremely kind to me, it's not right.
Wyman: Give us a break guys!
Oz: Den man, in three days we can be back in Bangkok, where I've got unfinished business in a whirlpool.
Dennis: Oz, can you remember us ever not finshing a job? Nev?
Neville: Why Africa, but there was only a spot of plastering to do like.
Dennis: Doesn't sit right man?
Naomi: Have you guys gone mad in the sun or something?
Oz: No, Den's right, get yourself a bowl of noodles pet, we've got a roof to finish.

[Closing scene; Dennis, Neville and Oz are on the ferry to Germany]
Dennis: Hey, what did your Brenda say, when you told her we were going back to Germany?
Neville: She said, 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet'.
