Grey: We have heard evidence as to the extent you actually eat at present

Brady: I do what?

Grey: You eat, as well as the naso-gastric tube.

Brady : According to who? The same member of staff who I've just referred to as regressive, provocative. I have been on this 14 years. I mean it's trivia, the trivia these people use.

Grey: Mr Brady, what are you eating at the moment?

Brady: I'm not eating anything.
