The Twelve Quotes Of Bryant & May: No.3

Christopher Fowler
PCU1 (Bryant and May on surveillance duty) 'My foot's gone to sleep,' complained Bryant, stamping experimentally on the pavement. For the past
hour
they had been standing in the mist-shrouded garden beside
their suspect's
house.
'Nearly
eleven
p.m.
I wish
he'd hurry up.
I have
to say you're
not
much
company.' 'I needn't
have
come
at
all,' May
pointed out.
'This
isn't my case.' 'Yes, I suppose stakeouts are a bit beneath you these days.
I like to
keep
my hand in.
Look
at
this
fog.
The
damp gets right
into
your
bones.
It's doing
my chest
no good
at all. I'll need

a
vapour
bath.'

Bryant

pulled

down
his
scarf

and peered
over
the
sodden hedge.
Dew
had
formed on
his bald head
and
ears.
He resembled a minor Tolkien character. 'You're

getting

old
before

your

time,'
warned
May.

'I
can't
imagine
what
you'll be like in your
eighties.' 'I'm ageing gracefully, which
means
not
trying
to look
like a member of Concrete Blimp.' 'I assume
you mean
Led Zeppelin.' (From 'Seventy Seven Clocks')

As a one-time Led Zeppelin fan, I really laughed at this tone.

Concrete Blimp... ok this one Made. My. Day. I laughed so hard my family poked their heads through the door to see what I was cackling about.
