John Lydon: Everything you do is a character, or a characterisation of what you assume you are.

Van Jones: You don’t have to do anything else.

Lydon: I would hope so. I never did. I’m proper. 

Jones: Listen, but guess what?

Lydon: I’m uninterested. Peace.


Jones: We are on track now for a tragedy. 

Lydon: We just can’t help it. 

Jones: Period.

Lydon: And by the time we get to the moaning and groaning, it's too late, the damage is done.

Jones: End of story, we’re done. Right?


Lydon: And the media definitely resented it, because it was the end of their cushy careers and society as they knew it, and everything suddenly became open for conjecture.

Jones: You can't have an honest conversation.

Lydon: Yeah. I wouldn’t.

Jones: Because you can’t. 

Lydon: No. Because it shows the stupidity of domestic situations and how they could explode, if we were lesser people, into something horribly serious.
