    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Webster tells Maddern that he is a war baby and that careless talk costs lives. The slogan was coined by the Ministry of Information in 1940 to warn the British against talking too freely during World War Two in case information was overheard by enemy sympathisers.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Webster: What South African geezer?
        Maddern: A geezer I knew when I was over there alright?
        Webster: This would be during your colonial days would it Thomas?

      • Andreotti: When's Jo back Bill? May as well rent her desk.

      • Bill: [Talking about her role in the Short investigation] Katherine, if this ever gets to court and he has a good lawyer, which undoubtedly he will have, I hope you will not be faced with the question did you lead this gentleman on or did you act as an agent provocateur?
        Katherine: It's a bit old fashioned isn't it?

      • Diane: Bear bile is taken from the stomachs of young, caged bears. Here, I'll show you. [She passes a photograph to Marsh] They capture the bears, put them in these tiny, cramped cages and then stab them with a sharp, metal pipe in their stomachs. It's just rammed in like a long, hollow nail. See that tap on the end? [Gestures towards the photograph] The bears are kept just alive so that every two weeks when that tap is turned, the fresh stomach bile can be extracted. It's sold to pathetic old men who think that drinking it will make them more virile. And when the bears finally die, or sometimes before they die, their paws are chopped off and sold to make a soup that sells for fifty quid a bottle. Can you imagine that Graham?
