Withnail (Richard E Grant) and I (Paul McGann) live in a squalid flat in Camden where in the first scene, there's a discussion about the washing up. "Right, you fucker. I'm gonna do the washing up." "No, no, you can't. It's impossible, I swear. I've looked into it. Listen to me! Listen to me! There are things in there. There's a tea bag growing." "You haven't slept in hours. You're in no state to tackle it."
