FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Professor Stephen Curtis, referring to bad advances made in the world, cites "McDonalds, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and mobile phones." Ruth replies, "I think mobiles are very useful and I liked Les Mis." "Les Mis" or Les Misérables (the musical) was composed by Claude-Michel Schönberg (with a libretto by Alain Boublil and lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer), not Andrew Lloyd Webber.

    • The "mainline station" the second bomb was planted in is "Marylebone".

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Harry: Their main animosity is directed towards America. Consequently, our knowledge of their cadres and cell structures is quite sketchy.
      Richard: Sketchy? Sketchy as in non-existent?
      Harry: No. Sketchy as in your knowledge of Al-qaeda when they were learning to fly and sunning themselves in Florida.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The Home Secretary tells Harry that the Prime Minister likes Julia – Harry's nemesis – so they are going to give her a senior position in the security services. Harry scoffs that they should recruit Jamie Oliver.

      Jamie Oliver is a London-based celebrity chef who has done a lot of work with disadvantaged children. His most recent venture was to improve school meals. He is supposedly on friendly terms with Tony Blair.
