  • Quotes

    • David Stringer: Before I thrash the Colonel at snooker, how about a different game? You'll love it.
      Reverend Green: What game, Mr Stringer?
      David Stringer: I pose a problem, you give the right ethical answer. Easy one first. Yours, Colonel.
      Colonel Mustard: Go on.
      David Stringer: Gulf War. Undercover operation goes very wrong. Six of our non-existant chaps- all Sten guns and balaclavas- get taken alive, delivered back to our own HQ, missing parts and mercifully dead.
      Colonel Mustard: So war's not very pretty.
      David Stringer: The CO who cocked it up and covered it up gets a gong. Now is that right ethically, Colonel? (to Professor Plum) How about a scientific one? A company sells something that kills the people who use it, yet it was verified harmless by an eminent scientist. Now, is that scientist guilty of murder or the company who sold it? Eh, Doc?
      Professor Plum: You're here to write about the Grange. I suggest you do that and leave the house guests alone.
      David Stringer: Just something to think about, Doc.
