    • Max Gold: You remind me of the greatest British hero of all.
      Colonel Mustard: Ah, I know who you mean. We shall fight them on the beaches. We will never surrender.

      Colonel Mustard is referring to Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister during the Second World War. The speech that Mustard misquotes- the actual text reads 'we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender'- was delivered by Churchill to the House of Commons on June 4 1940. In 2002, Churchill was voted the Greatest Briton in a poll conducted by the BBC.
