    • Alan: To bring hanging, kicking and screaming, into the 1990s: televised public executions. For, by carrying out public executions in front of a large ticket-buying audience, we can both increase deterrence and make capital punishment self-financing, if not actually profit-making.

    • Alan: I did it for Margaret, Piers. Piers: Who's Margaret Piers? Alan: No, I mean Margaret Thatcher. You know, blond woman, loud voice, very shy and retiring.

    • Piers: No Fletcher-Dervish has ever betrayed a confidence since our ancestors arrived with William the Conqueror in 1067. Alan: No, 1066. Piers: No, 1067. They overslept.
