Movie Quote of the Day – Billy Elliot (Stephen Daldry, 2000)

Billy: My hands are freezing.

Michael: ‘Gizzem here.

Billy: [Michael takes his hands and puts them in his jacket] What are you doing?

Michael: Nothin’. Just warmin’ your hands up.

Billy: [pause] You’re not a poof or owt?

Michael: [deadpan] What gave you that impression?

Billy: Aren’t me hands cold?

Michael: I quite like it. [kisses Billy on the cheek; they stare at each other]

Billy: Just because I like ballet, doesn’t mean I’m a poof, you know.

Michael: You won’t tell anyone, will you?

Billy: [pauses, then grins] Come on.

Michael: [stares after him longingly]
