      Colonel Witherton: (shouting from his office) Hurry up with my uniform!

      Potts: And a nanny to a ninny.

    • (MacKensey notices the nanny goat roaming around.) MacKensey: Why don't you get him a pen?

      Potts: Cause he can't write.

    • Potts: It was me who completely caused this balls-up, ... this balles-oop. What the French for ...? Coq au vin!

    Allusions (2)

    • Potts: It is a far, far better thing I go to do than I've ever done before. And a bloody sight more stupid. Potts partly quotes the famous last words of Sydney Carlton, the hero of "A Tale of Two Cities".

    • Sally: That little goatee beard! He reminds me of Monty Woolley. Monty Woolley (1888 - 1963) was a bearded, former university professor who became a film actor late in life.
