(1 vote)

Tommy dies a horrible and lonely death after he succumbs to HIV-related toxoplasmosis. Renton and friends do a scag deal and get 16,000 pounds. They celebrate and start making comments about each other having thoughts of running off with the money and what will happen to them if they do. Begbie goes mad and beats an unlucky pub patron, and accidentally cuts Spud's hand. After that, Renton decides to take off with the cash. As he is leaving, he looks at Spud who is signalling for him to not go. Renton ignores him. He leaves Spud his share in the locker with the passport in it. Begbie filled with rage, tears apart their hotel room, and most likely gets arrested. Renton repeats his 'Choose Life' speech and claims he is ready to choose life, a family, a f***ing big television etc. Before the credits begin, we see Spud finding his share in the locker.

Lois James

Continuity mistake: When Renton goes home with Diane, after they finish having sex, she tells him to get out and leave the room. As Renton sits up, it's very obvious that he's not wearing any protection. Not thirty seconds later, he peels off his condom in the hallway.

Tommy: Doesn't it make you proud to be Scottish?
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We're ruled by effete arseholes. It's a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference.
