    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Alan opens Mrs Thatcher's desk drawer, he finds a copy of Spycatcher. This memoir by former MI5 agent Peter Wright was banned by the British government in 1985, thus ensuring its success elsewhere.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Alan: I demand to see the airport manager, or the airport Führer, or whatever you call him.


        Lufthansa clerk: I'm afraid Mr Goering is unavailable. He's busy pillaging the art galleries of Eastern Europe.

      • Alan: (meeting Norman in an ambulance on Park Lane) You've only been wheel-clamped, Norman.


        Norman: Of course, that's the object of the exercise.


        Alan: How do you mean?


        Norman: Well, it's all a matter of perspective. You see a clapped out ambulance immobilised by vindictive wardens. I see 100 square feet of prime office space in Park Lane on a 50 pound daily rate.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Alan: (talking about MP Bob Crippen) Here we are, dealing with a man whose family history shows that he's related to a very dubious member of the medical profession.

        Alan refers to Dr Crippen (1862-1910), an American physician hanged for the murder of his wife.
