Ron Moody Quotes:

Fagin: [sings] I'm reviewing the situation / Can a fellow be a villain all his life? / All the trials and tribulations. / Better settle down and get myself a wife! / And a wife would cook and sew for me, / And come for me, and go for me, / And go for me, and nag at me, / The fingers, she would wag at me. / The money she would take from me. / A misery, she'll make from me... I think I'd better think it out again!

Fagin: [singing] A wife you can keep, anyway/ I'd rather sleep, anyway.

Sidney Pudney: I was selling off war surplus before the war even started!
