Two Google Fails ...

Okay, probably my fault, but I can't find definitive answers to two things I've been searching for.

1) In 'Brassed Off', what is the exact wording Pete Postlethwaite's character uses about the way Tara Fitzgerald's character ends the Concierto De Aranjuez?

2) Misogynist is to Misogynistic as Misandrist is to ...? Is it Misandric or Misandristic?
(The quasi-story I'm working on has a character with a low opinion of men.)

1) "And she calls that wobbly..."

2) Misandristic (like realist-ic, artist-ic, etc.)

@Ryan Sylander

Thank you.

1) "And she calls that wobbly..."

I remembered it as PP saying to himself 'finishes/d with a ...'

I guess I'll have to watch the start of the film next time it's on TV.

2) Misandristic (like realist-ic, artist-ic, etc.)

I found both Misandristic and Misandric. I used the Google 'vs' to try to get a feeling for relative frequencies, but since when has Google ever done what users want :(

Misandristic doesn't fit very well into the PC narrative. That being the case, don't expect much out of Google.

Wikitionary shows both misandric and misandristic. OED has neither.

Google books ngram viewer (https://books.google.com/ngrams) shows misandric only.
