    • Jim Hutton: I wouldn't mind a beer.
    • [chuckles]
    • Freddie Mercury: Can you just tell me where we keep them?

    • Freddie Mercury: It's unusual seeing you be so bitchy.
    • Live Aid Organiser: So we have had a bit of a complaint about the noise... From a woman in Belgium.
    • Reporter 2: Freddie, uh, your teeth! Why don't you get your teeth fixed?
    • Freddie Mercury: I live in Britain. I don't want to stand out.
    • [after Mary leaves Freddie, driving away in the rain]
    • Paul Prenter: 'Cause I'm the only one left, now you're blaming me for everything?
    • Freddie Mercury: I blame myself.
    • Paul Prenter: So I'm out? Just like that? After everything we've been through? Just think of the photos I have. I know who you are, Freddie Mercury!
    • [angry, firmly]
    • Freddie Mercury: You know when you gone really rotten? Really rotten? Fruit fly. Dirty, little, fruit fly. Coming to feast on what's left. Well, there isn't much left for you to feast on anymore!
    • [Under Pressure begins playing]
    • [enraged]
    • Freddie Mercury: So, fly off! Do what you like with your photographs and your stories... but promise me one thing... that I never want to see your face again... ever.
    • Paul Prenter: Freddie? What are you doing? You'll catch your death.
    • Freddie Mercury: Why didn't you tell me about Live Aid?
    • Paul Prenter: The Africa charity gig? It'd be an embarrassment. I didn't want to waste your time.
    • Freddie Mercury: You should have told me.
    • Paul Prenter: Of course I did. You forgot. You're always forgetting things. Come in now and have a drink.
    • Freddie Mercury: You're out.
    • Paul Prenter: What do you mean?
    • Freddie Mercury: I want you out of my life.
    • Mary Austin: What's it like, singing for all those people?
    • Freddie Mercury: When I know they're listening, when I know I really have them, I couldn't sing off-key if I tried. I am exactly the person I was always meant to be. I'm not afraid of anything.
    • Freddie Mercury: The only other time I ever feel that way is when I'm with you.
    • [finally meets Jim again]
    • Freddie Mercury: Do you have any idea how many Jim Huttons there are in London?
    • Jim Hutton: I didn't want to make it too easy for you.
    • Reporter 3: Freddie, concerning your private life: there's lots of pictures of you in the tabloids, looking drunk or ill.
    • Freddie Mercury: Which one is it; ill or drunk?
    • John Reid: I had a cold last week, if anyone cares.
    • [the reunion meeting starts off tense]
    • Jim Beach: If anyone wants any tea, coffee, bladed weapons, just... just ask.
    • Freddie Mercury: I went to Munich. I hired a bunch of guys, I told them exactly what to do and the problem was, they did it. No push-back from Roger, none of Brian's re-writes, none of John's funny looks. I need you, and you need me.
    • [listens to May's guitar]
    • Freddie Mercury: Give it a bit more rock and roll.
    • [smiles]
    • Brian May: You know I'm always up for that, Fred.
    • Freddie Mercury: I'm frightened...
    • Mary Austin: Freddie, you don't need to be, because no matter what, you are loved. By me, by Brian, Roger, Deacy, your family. It's enough. And these people... They don't care about you. Paul doesn't care about you. You don't belong here, Freddie. Come home.
    • Freddie Mercury: ...You've got families, children, wives. What have I got?
    • John Deacon: You've got $4 million. Perhaps you can buy yourself a family.
    • [arguing over Queen's musical direction]

    • Brian May: Roger! Take it easy, take it easy! Take it easy.
    • [gently pushing Freddie away]
    • Brian May: All right, Muhammad Ali.
    • [while this is going on, John picks up his bass and begins playing the opening riff for "Another One Bites the Dust"; everyone s]
    • Brian May: That's... that's, that's quite... that's quite a cool riff, actually.
    • Freddie Mercury: Hm. You wrote that?
    • [John glares at him and keeps playing]
    • Freddie Mercury: That's really good.
    • Roger Taylor: Drum loops? Synthesizers?
    • [John stops]
    • John Deacon: Yes, it will be... if you all can just shut up and play.
    • [Brian pats Freddie on the shoulder]
    • [nodding at Roger]
    • Freddie Mercury: He started it.
    • Brian May: Oh, shut up.
    • Freddie Mercury: If you say so.
    • Roger Taylor: It's not us.
    • Freddie Mercury: Us?
    • Roger Taylor: It's not Queen!
    • [yelling angrily]

    • [stepping up to Freddie]
    • Roger Taylor: Well, you can play your own bloody drums, then!
    • [Freddie shoves him away]
    • Brian May: This is America. They're puritans on the outside and perverts on the inside.

    • Jim Beach: Freddie, they don't want anything to do with you. They're still very upset.
    • Freddie Mercury: Maybe i-if you ask them... they would meet me. Tell them I want to talk. Just talk. We're family. You know, family... have fights, all the time.
    • Jim Beach: I can call.
