Tub, Truck Driver:
My name's Tub. Where you from, mate?
Tom Yately: Around.
Dusty, Truck Driver: That's up north somewhere, ain't it?
Johnny Kates: Go on, you can tell a good Welshman when you hear one. Cardiff, isn't it mate?
Tom Yately: Near there - Blaenllechau.
Tub, Truck Driver: That's a horrible disease!
Near the end of the film during the final chase, Tom's loaded truck is headed through the shortcut in the same direction that the drivers have taken to pick up a load (when the trucks are empty). He's going the wrong way.
