  • Quotes

    • Francis Urquhart: This used to be a country fit for heroes, Ben. Explorers, soldiers, merchant adventurers. We want a leader who's prepared to let his dogs off the leash.
      Ben Landless: Give us a little room to run, eh?
      Francis Urquhart: Quite!

    • Francis Urquhart: (after a bad election result) By-Elections are just a chance for folks to let off steam. A lot of funny things happen in Devon.

    • Mattie Storin: (about the Prime Minister) Not quite up to his job.
      Francis Urquhart: Mattie, you might very well think that. You know I couldn't possibly comment.
