    • Jack Malik: Yesterday.
    • Carol: That was one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
    • Rocky: Yeah. I mean, it's a bit-bit sloppy, but it's sweet.
    • Ellie Appleton: When did you write that?
    • Jack Malik: I didn't write it. Paul McCartney wrote it, The Beatles.
    • Carol: Who?

    • Carol: The what?
    • [referring to his friends not knowing The Beatles]
    • Jack Malik: Wow, this is the most complicated joke I've ever heard.
    • Nick: Nice song, though.
    • Jack Malik: It's not a nice song.
    • Nick: No, it is, mate. Don't do yourself down just because you look like a cartoon character. It's a very nice song.
    • Jack Malik: It's not a very nice song, Nick. It's one of the greatest songs ever written.
    • Carol: Well, it's not Coldplay. It's not Fix You.

    • Ed Sheeran: Nice to meet you.
    • Jack Malik: You look like Ed Sheeran.
    • Ed Sheeran: I am Ed Sheeran.
    • Jack Malik: Oh, right. Well done.
    • [after Ed's asked Jack to be his opening act]
    • Jack Malik: Um, how long do you need?
    • Ed Sheeran: About thirty minutes maximum. Any more than that, people start getting a bit restless. You know, "Bring on the ginger geezer."
    • Ed Sheeran: I do have a suggestion though. Um, about the song. The title, Hey Jude. Jude is just, it's a bit old fashioned. That was the kid's name, right?
    • Jack Malik: What kid?
    • Ed Sheeran: That the song's about.
    • Jack Malik: Oh, the kid, the kid, the kid. Yes, the sad kid.
    • Ed Sheeran: Now, let me just give you this advice, right? Song title. I won't charge you a penny for it as well. Hey Dude.
    • [addressing the Wembley Stadium crowd; referring to the giant screen on the stadium showing Ellie]
    • Jack Malik: This is Ellie. And when I had no fans, Ellie was my only fan. The only person in the world who believed in me. And that's why, tonight, I asked Ed if I could come on and play, because I want to tell her, and you, what I've done. Darn it, Ellie, I've been untrue. All the songs I've sung tonight were really written and performed by four men called John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The Beatles. They were the real geniuses. Me, I'm just a sort of go-between to, well, get their astonishing stuff into the world. And, uh, I passed their amazing work off as my own, so I could look like I was amazing too.
    • [the crowd starts jeering]
    • Jack Malik: I want you all to know that I'm not going to take any money for this work that isn't mine. So you can have all the songs for free. Rocky, do it.
    • Rocky: Right. Here goes.
    • [he upload the songs for free to the internet]
    • Jack Malik: They're being released, for free, online now. And I'd love to not take any more praise for it. So, um, I'm so sorry.
    • [to Jack and Ellie]
    • Gavin: Well, this is a strange one. Of course I've always known I was number two. But that's not a bad place to be. Some of the best songs never made it to number one. Common People by Pulp, for a start. It's a total classic. And obviously all I want is for Ellie to be happy.
    • Ellie Appleton: Gavin. Best man I ever met.
    • [she kisses his cheek]
    • Ellie Appleton: Thank you, Gavin.
