Shaun: Right. [cuts to dream sequence] We take Pete’s car, we drive over to Mum’s, we go in, take care of Philip—‘I’m so sorry, Philip’—then we grab Mum, we go over to Liz’s place, hole up, have a cup of tea, and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
Ed: Why have we got to go to Liz’s?
Shaun: Because we do.
Ed: But she dumped you!
Shaun: I have to know if she’s all right!
Shaun: Because I love her!
Ed: All right...gayyy...I’m not staying there, though.
Shaun: Why not?
Ed: If we hole up, I wanna be somewhere familiar, I wanna know where the exits are, and I wanna be allowed to smoke.
Shaun: Okay. [cuts to dream sequence again] We take Pete’s car, go round Mum’s, go in, deal with Philip—‘Sorry, Philip!’—grab Mum, go to Liz’s, pick her up, bring her back here, have a cup of tea, and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
Shaun: No, no, no, no, no, wait, we can’t bring her back here.
Ed: Why not?
Shaun: Well, it’s not really safe, is it?
Ed: Yeah, look at the state of it.
Shaun: Where’s safe? Where’s familiar?
Ed: Where can I smoke? [Shaun and Ed pause, then slowly make a realization]
Shaun: [cuts to dream sequence a third time] Take car. Go to Mum’s. Kill Phil—‘Sorry.’—grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
Ed: Yeah, boyyyeee! [Shaun and Ed clang their weapons together]”
