[Mingling Joe's and Ken's ashes] I think I'm putting in more of Joe than I am of Kenneth.

Kenneth Halliwell:
I can't remember when you last touched my cock. Well, I can actually. It was about two years ago. Only I can't remember the actual date. Pity. I could have put it in my diary. "The last time Joe touched my cock. Grouse shooting begins"

[Halliwell puts his hand on Orton's leg. Orton brushes it off]



Joe Orton:
No. Have a wank.



Kenneth Halliwell:
Have a wank? Have a wank? I can't just have a wank. I need three days' notice to have a wank. You can just stand there and do it. Me, it's like organizing D-Day. Forces have to be assembled, magazines bought, the past dredged for some suitably unsavoury episode, the dog-eared thought of which can still produce a faint flicker of desire! Have a wank, it'd be easier to raise the Titanic.

Kenneth Halliwell:
I just want to go to the awards! I could! Look, "Joe Orton and guest." I'd behave. I wouldn't say a word, I promise.



Joe Orton:
No.



Kenneth Halliwell:
Why?



Joe Orton:
Because it's for me. I wrote it.



Kenneth Halliwell:
I gave you the title.



Joe Orton:
Okay, so when they have awards for titles, you can go to that.

Do you notice I'm limping? Spilled a hot drink down my dress. My vagina came up like a football.

Some of these people are, well, having sexual intercourse.

Fucking, you mean? Well, what do you expect? Many of them are from Australia.

Peggy Ramsay:
Ken was the first wife. He did all the work and the waiting and then...



John Lahr:
Well, first wives don't usually beat their husbands' heads in.



Peggy Ramsay:
No. Though why I can't think.



John Lahr:
So what does that make you? The second wife?



Peggy Ramsay:
Better than that, dear. The widow.

He's probably a policeman.

Joe Orton:
[accepting a drama award] My plays are about getting away with it, and the ones who get away with it are the guilty ones. It's the innocents who get it in the neck. But that all seems pretty true to life to me. Not a fantasy at all. I've got away with it *so far*

Joe Orton:
and I'm going to go on.
