Malcolm: Phoebe - how would you like to supervise our Sidney for a month or two?
Phoebe: No way.
Malcolm: Go on; you'd be a good influence on the boy. Why not?

Malcolm: Boys will be boys.


In the movie, Sid (Gary Oldman) is frequently seen wearing a t-shirt with the hammer and sickle symbol printed on it. In reality, Vicious frequently wore a t-shirt containing a Nazi swastika symbol, but Alex Cox didn't want to put a swastika in the film.
