Soper: ‘They called me a loony. Loony, loony, loony. Who did? Them doctors. At that hospital.’
Soper: ‘There was this consultant, see? Very learned man, very sharp. Wearing these smooth, clean Chelsea Boots in creamy chocolate suede like he was better than me, better than anybody.’
Soper: ‘RIBBLE, they was called. Anybody could of been somebody in boots like that.’
Spatchcock: ‘ ...Sorry, did you say something? I’ve been asleep for the last three hours.’
