After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.
The 'prestigious Edinburgh private school' is in fact the main gate of the University of Glasgow.
What all this then? Planning a special event are we sir?
Begbie: Give me the tablets pal!
Renton: Remember not to exceed the stated dose.
Begbie: Give me the fucking tablets or I'll come through there and pound your fucking head in!
Renton: Alright fucking calm down
Renton: For fuck sake.
It is frequently mentioned that the events of this film take place 20 years after the events in the original movie. Renton states that he is now 46 years old. There is a flashback to the characters as children, and it is explicitly stated in the end credits that the characters are all 9 years old. Therefore, Sick Boy would surely know that 20 years ago when Tommy died, Tommy was nearer to 26 years of age, not "22 or 23".
