Quotes from Richard Briers movies and TV shows

Blackberry: Men have always hated us.
Holly: No. They just destroyed the warren because we were in their way.
Fiver: They'll never rest until they've spoiled the earth.

Hazel: Where are you going?
Fiver: Away, to the hills.
Hazel: By yourself, alone? You'll die.
Fiver: You're closer to death than I am.

Fiver: Look. Look. That's the place for us. High, lonely hills, where the wind and the sound carry, and the ground's as dry as straw in a barn. That's where we ought to be. That's where we have to get to.

Fiver: There's something very queer about the warren this evening.
Hazel: Is it dangerous?
Fiver: It's not exactly danger, it's... oh, I don't know. Something oppressive... like thunder.
