Withnail & I - Marwood Quotes

Withnail with Marwood

Marwood (first name: Peter) has been described by Bruce Robinson as having a very generous role in the film... “He doesn’t have the fireworks like Grant, he doesn’t have the laughs; he’s setting up the laughs for Withnail all the time.”

The official screenplay includes quotes that didn't make the film.

• Get anymore masculine than him, you have to live up a tree.

• I have just narrowly avoided having a buggering, and have come in here with the express intention of wishing one upon you.

• Who's the huge spade in the bath? [Presuming Ed.] You've got ten minutes, right? I want you out 'cause I want to get in.
