Sick Boy: Hey, Tommy. This is not natural, man.
Tommy: It’s the great outdoors! It’s fresh air!
Sick Boy: Look, Tommy. We know you’re gettin’ a hard time off Lizzy, but there’s really no need to take it out on us.
Tommy: Doesn’t it make you proud to be Scottish?
Renton: It’s shite being Scottish! We’re the lowest of the low! The scum of the fuckin’ Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization! Some people 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 assholes! It’s a shite state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and all the fresh air in the world won’t make any fuckin’ difference!
