I think another obvious one would be ,

"You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off !"

"You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off !"

...or indeed "You're a big man, but you're in bad shape. With me it's a full time job. Now behave yourself".
It's not the cost of the suit that counts, it's the worth of the man inside it

Indeed , characters don't get much nastier than the likes of Jack Carter . .

My favourite quotes are often pretty low key and frequently Michael Caine:

"You failed to maintain your weapon, son".                                          (Harry Brown)

"Dalby works his men. And he doesn't have my sense of humour".    (The Ipcress File)
"Yes sir, I will miss that, sir".

But not always ..

"He's winding me up. The bloke".        Quadrophenia

Cheers,
Mike

Ah, yes Ipcress is one of my favourites . More like what espionage would be like rather than Bond . .


01:40:57 Shoot the traitor... now.


01:41:42 I was counting on you being an insubordinate bastard, Palmer.


01:41:48 You used me as a decoy.


01:41:52 I might have been killed or driven stark, raving mad.


01:41:56 That's what you're paid for.

I know Quadrophenia so well that I got a picture of the exact scene you quoted , when they go over to Brixton . .

Splendid movie. Wonderful, dry exchanges. In common with the majority of Len Deighton's output.
Funeral in Berlin comes fairly close for me, too. But if I ever had access to a time machine I'd forget about Hitler and head instead for the set of Billion Dollar Brain to see if I could do some good.

Tough to avoid quoting Quadrophenia all day (and yes, I'll have to go home and watch it again now) but there's a quiet, realistic humour about a lot of the dialog. That whole exchange is so real:

Jim: "Is Ferdy in?"

"He not here. Him gone out."

"Looking for Ferdy?"

Jim: "Yeah. Yeah, yeah."

"He's gone out."

Jim: "Yeah".

I don't think I ever saw the Billion Dollar Brain , so I'll have to see if l can down load it. .

Another funny one from Quadrophenia . .

Hairdresser ; D' you want some lacquer on that ?

Jim ;  Nah, poofs wear lacquer. .

Hairdresser ; I wear lacquer !

Jim ; That's what I mean, innit?

Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: Never again, Swanney. I'm off the scag.
Swanney: Are you serious?
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: Yeah, no more. I'm finished with that s**te.
Swanney: Well, it's up to you, man.
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: Gonna get it right this time. Gonna get it sorted out. Gonna get off it for good.
Swanney: I've heard that one before.
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: The Sick Boy method?
Swanney: Well, it nearly worked for him, hey.
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: Well, he's always been lacking in moral fiber.
Swanney: He knows a lot about Sean Connery.
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: That's hardly a substitute.
