Movie Quote of the Day – Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, 1960 (dr. Karel Reisz)

Arthur Seaton: I’ve still got some fight left in me, not like most people.
Bert: Not saying you ain’t, but where does all this fighting get you?
Arthur Seaton: Have you ever seen where not fighting’s got you, eh? Like my mom and dad?
Bert: What do you mean? They’ve got all that they want.
Arthur Seaton: They’ve got a television set and a packet of fags, but they’re both dead from the neck up. I’m not saying it’s their fault, mind you. They’ve had their hash settled for ’em so’s all them bloody gaffers can push them around like a load of sheep.
Bert: I’ve seen you in some funny moods, Arthur, I’ve never seen you like this before.
Arthur Seaton: There’s a lot more in life, Bert, than my mom and dad have got.
