Oliver Twist: Yes, sir
Bet: Sir? You know who you're talking to, do ya?
When Oliver runs away from Mr. Sowerberry's house to London, his shoes keep changing between shots. He is shown wearing shoes both with and without laces. When he sits and has his meal under the cart in the rain, his shoes do not have laces. Immediately after that, the shoes have laces.
SPOILER: Footage of the beating of Nancy from Bill was cut in the UK to obtain a "PG" rating.
