Added DiffLines:

* MametSpeak: Dialogue can be realistically clumsy, irregularly paced, and very frequently dips into vulgar.
-->'''Ken''': You don't even know we're here hiding out.\\
'''Ray''': What are you talking about?\\
'''Ken''': You don't even know we're not here on a job.\\
'''Ray''': What, on a job?\\
'''Ken''': Yeah.\\
'''Ray''': Here? Film/{{In Bruges}}?\\
'''Ken''': Yeah.\\
'''Ray''': Here? In Bruges? On a job?\\
'''Ken''': Yeah.\\
'''Ray''': Why? What did he actually say?\\
'''Ken''': He didn't actually say anything.\\
'''Ray''': Then why do you think it might be?\\
'''Ken''': I don't think anything. But it's a bit fucking over-elaborate, isn't it? ''"Go take him to hide out." "Go take him to hide out where?" "Go take him to hide out in fucking Bruges."'' You can hide out in Croydon.\\
'''Ray''': Hmm. Or Coventry. Hmm. It is a bit over-elaborate. Hmm.
