** The scene is slightly different in the book--Begbie begins to furiously interrogate the entire bar, playing detective and shouting at the bartender to call the police. The girl's boyfriend sets off the brawl by punching another man. After the massive bar brawl is over, he and Begbie together kick another man to a pulp, and he cheerfully extends his hand to Begbie. Who promptly kicks him in the groin and punches his face in.
