Notes from a conversation with [K] regarding my nasty neighbours [next-door].
Dick Solomon (John Lithgow): I know that it was his final request that I be forthright and honest, but, the problem is, I can’t seem to find anything good to say about this man. And I’ve been looking!
“There is no merit where there is no trial; and till experience stamps the mark of strength, cowards may pass for heroes, and faith for falsehood.” - Aaron Hill (www.quotelady.com/subjects/strength.html).
I have known people, like bouncers and soldiers, for example, who are more physical and know just what to do and what they can get away with should they feel that a situation requires the threat or use of physical force. In fact, I could have had someone pop round there at any time and knock this whole situation on the head once and for all within five minutes. I know what he’s capable of. Nobody would have known and the neighbours would have been way, way too scared to have continued or contacted anyone on the outside. I could even have sorted the Pigsy situation out in this way. They would have felt utterly paralysed, the way I was made to feel here in the past. It was on offer but it simply is not my way. I’m essentially a very gentle person and I believe that violence is to be avoided at any cost. Longing for a civilised society whilst being stuck in this hole may not be terribly realistic but, equally, I hate violence.
Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer): [About to rob a diner] I love you, Pumpkin.
Pumpkin (Tim Roth): I love you, Honey Bunny.
Pumpkin [Stands up brandishing a gun] All right, everybody be cool, this is a robbery!
Honey Bunny: Any of you fucking pricks move, and I'll execute every motherfucking last one of ya!
