Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Poster

Aidan Gillen: John Reid



  • John Reid : So, tell me. What makes Queen any different from all of the other wannabe rockstars I meet?

    Freddie Mercury : Tell you what it is, Mr. Reid. Now we're four misfits who don't belong together, we're playing for the other misfits. They're the outcasts, right at the back of the room. We're pretty sure they don't belong either. We belong to them.

  • Ray Foster : Bohemian...

    Brian May : Rhapsody.

    Ray Foster : Rhapsody. What is that?

    Freddie Mercury : An epic poem.

    Ray Foster : It goes on forever, six bloody minutes!

    Freddie Mercury : I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever.


    Freddie Mercury : And you know what? We're going to release it as our single.

    Ray Foster : [laugs]  Not possible. Anything over three minutes, and the radio stations won't program it. John?

    John Reid : Yeah, we need radio. Format is three minutes.

    Ray Foster : What about 'I'm in Love with My Car'?

    [disappointed look on Queen's faces before Freddie kicks Ray's desk] 

    Ray Foster : Well, that's the kind of songs teenagers can crank up the volume in their car and bang their heads to. 'Bohemian Rhapsody' will never be that song.

  • John Reid : [Introducing Jim Beach to Ray Foster]  And here's the bands lawyer Jim Beach.

    Jim Beach : Hello.

    Freddie Mercury : You MUST stop calling him that.

    John Reid : That's his name.

    Freddie Mercury : No, we can NOT keep calling him Jim Beach. Now that's absurd, not to mention unspeakably boring.


    Freddie Mercury : Miami! From now on I dub thee MIAMI Beach!

  • Reporter 3 : Freddie, concerning your private life: there's lots of pictures of you in the tabloids, looking drunk or ill.

    Freddie Mercury : Which one is it; ill or drunk?

    John Reid : I had a cold last week, if anyone cares.
