The More You Know: And here is my transcriptions / script. You're welcome:
ROB - I say: Michael Caine used to talk like this in the 1960s, right? But that has changed. And I said: Over the years, Michael's voice has come down several octaves. Let me finish. And all of the cigars and the brandy - don't / let me finish - can now be heard - I'm not fucking finished - in the back of the voice, In the voice now... I'm still. not. finished. The voice –

STEVE - Because you’re panicking.

ROB - Because you look like you're about to bloody talk! Let me finish. Right, so, Michael Caine's voice now, in the Batman movies, and in Harry… Brown, I can't go fast, because Michael Caine talks very... very... slowly.
