Gerry Standing: Well, I'm going for a pint. You going to the library?

Brian Lane: I've had it with libraries.

Gerry Standing: Eh?

Brian Lane: They're full of weirdos.

Gerry Standing: I thought that's why you felt so at home.

Jack Halford: Anyway, they're a thing of the past.

Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: Mm, really?

Brian Lane: [holding up ereader] This is the way forward. Linked to the Internet it allows me to access the world's literary culture from the comfort of my own armchair.

Gerry Standing: Cor, let's have a go. Can you play football manager on it?

Brian Lane: No, you can't, and be careful. I've just downloaded the complete poems of Philip Larkin.

Jack Halford: Now there's a man who spent his life in libraries.

Gerry Standing: Huh. Here's a good quote.

Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: What's that then?

Gerry Standing: "Books are a load of crap."

Jack Halford: [affected professorial tone] I think you'll find that's an example of Larkin's use of irony.
