Shaun Of The Dead (2004) Shaun is having many problems in life. His long-time girlfriend has dumped him due to their almost-daily expedition to Shaun's favorite pub, the Winchester. His temporary management job isn't going well at Foree Electronics, with his subordinates not even giving him the time of day. His deadbeat flatmates, Pete and Ed, are at each others' throats. And, oh yeah, London is overrun with multitudes of zombies. In the midst of this, he must save himself, Ed, his ex, his mom, and his precious record collection. There is a time when a hero must rise...from his couch.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Liz: Shaun? Shaun: Yeah? Liz: You see what I'm saying? Shaun: Yep, totally. Liz: I know he's your best friend, but you do live with him. Shaun: I know. Liz: It's not that I don't like Ed. [Liz looks over at Ed who is playing an arcade game] Liz: Ed, it's not that I don't like you. Ed: It's all right. Liz: It would just be nice if we could... Ed: [talking to the arcade machine] Fuck! Liz: ...spend a bit more time together... Ed: [talking to the arcade machine] Bollocks! Liz: ...just the two of us. Ed: [talking to the arcade machine] Cock it! Liz: It's just with Ed here, it's no wonder I always bring my flat-mates out and then that only exacerbates things. Shaun: What do you mean? Liz: Well you guys hardly get on, do you? Shaun: No, what does "exacerbate" mean? Liz: It means um, to make things worse. Shaun: Right. Well I mean, it's not that I don't like David and Di. [Shaun looks over at David and Di at the table next to them] Shaun: Guys, it's not that I don't like you. David, Dianne: [together] It's all right. Shaun: And it's not that I don't want to spend time with you cause I do. It's just... Ed doesn't have too many friends. Ed: Can I get... any of you cunts... a drink?
  • [repeated line] Ed: I've got nothing.
  • Dianne: SHAUN! [Dianne throws a dart and misses] Shaun: NO! [Dianne throws another dart and hits the zombie] Shaun: YES, yes, in the head! [Dianne throws a third dart and hits Shaun in the head on accident] Shaun: AHHHHHHHHH!
  • [Shaun leads the zombies away from the pub to create a diversion] Shaun: Come and get it! It's a running buffet! [shouts] Shaun: All you can eat!
  • [Philip is crouched beside the car, after being bitten by a zombie] Philip: You're not driving that car.
Movie Trivia:
  • Many of the Zombie extras are fans of the TV series "Spaced" (1999), which also starred Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and was also directed by Edgar Wright. They were recruited through the Spaced Out fan web site to be in the film.
  • The phrase "fried gold" originated behind the scenes of Simon Pegg, Jessica Hynes and Edgar Wright's sitcom "Spaced" (1999) and was mentioned several times on the DVD commentaries for that series. It makes several fan-pleasing appearances in the film.
  • Frequent references are made to Big Al's claim that dogs can't look up. This is a reference to the commentary to the second series of "Spaced" (1999) in which Simon Pegg (Shaun) and Edgar Wright talk about Nick Frost (Ed)'s claim that the difficulty in shooting a scene with a dog was due to the fact that dogs can't look up.
  • When Shaun, Liz, David, Dianne, Barbara and Ed run into the alternative 'gang' as they make their way to the Winchester, there are quite a few comedy partnerships brought together again. Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes - Tim and Daisy from "Spaced" (1999). Lucy Davis and Martin Freeman - Dawn and Tim from "The Office" (2001). Dylan Moran and Tamsin Greig - Bernard and Fran from "Black Books" (2000). Julia Deakin and Nick Frost are, of course, in Spaced too, as Marsha and Mike respectively.
  • The zombie that Shaun (Simon Pegg) and Ed (Nick Frost) find in their garden is Mary, the checkout girl from the film's credit montage. A short story detailing her transformation into one of the undead was featured in issue 1384 of the classic British sci-fi comic 2000AD. The issue went on sale 7 April 2004. The strip was called "There's Something About Mary" and was written by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright (the film's co-writers) with art by Frazer Irving.
