    • Tony: Why isn't the digger going? You said you'd do the Geophys and then you'd dig on it
      John: Yeah, well we've got a slight problem, in that the temples are really clear in the aerial photograph
      Tony: Yeah?
      John: Well they're not quite so clear on the geophysics
      Phil: Have you got an explanation for that?
      John: Well, I think it might be plough damage
      (Tony throws up his hands and walks away)
      John: That's my feeling
      Tony:(return to the group) Look I know I don't know much about archaeology but I do know about the pathetic human optimism that, that, seduces you both…
      Phil: We told you, we made allowance for plough damage, we told you, we told you!
      Tony: (mimicking Phil's accent) Oh arh, Tony, there's gonna be a temple 'ere,
      Phil: and it might be plough damaged!
