    • Francis Urquhart: (about the King) What I prefer, of course, is that he'd give up thinking all together. Kings aren't supposed to think. It was always a great mistake sending him to university and letting him talk to all those architects, philosophers and comely, young, black activists.

    • Francis Urquhart: Prime Minister Question Time. Very frightening, ... like being mugged by a guinea pig.

    • Francis Urquhart: Many of you will deplore, as I do, the prevalence of muckraking in our tabloid press. But for muckraking to happen, there has to be muck to be raked. And, sadly, this commodity is not in short supply amongst the English society.

    • Tim Stamper: FU's on the warpath and the price of coffins is gonna raise.

      Stamper quotes from Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In the twenty-first chapter Boggs, a drunk in Bricksville, shouts "I'm on the waw-path, and the price uv coffins is a-gwyne to raise."
