    • Sir Humphrey: Ministers should never know more than they need to know. Then they can't tell anyone. Like secret agents, they could be captured and tortured.
      Bernard: You mean by terrorists?
      Sir Humphrey: By the BBC, Bernard.

    • (Glazebrook has just been offered a Quango position) Glazebrook: Are there lots of papers? Humphrey: Yes, but it wouldn't be awfully necessary to read them... Glazebrook: But then I wouldn't have anything to say at the monthly meetings! Humphrey: Splendid! I can see you're just the chap I'm looking for.

    • Hacker: You're blithering, Bernard. Bernard: Yes, Minister. Hacker: Why are you blithering, Bernard? Bernard: It's my job, Minister.

    • Sir Humphrey Appleby: It takes two to quango, Minister.
