    • Jim Hacker: Martin, what's all this about Buranda?
      Martin (Foreign Secretary): What's all what?
      Jim: There's been a coup d'état.
      Martin: How do you know?
      Jim: Well, it was on the news. Didn't you see? Don't you know? You're Foreign Secretary, for God's sake.
      Martin: Yes, but my TV set is on the blink.
      Jim: Your TV set? Don't you get Foreign Office telegrams?
      Martin: Oh, they always come in later. I get all the Foreign news from TV.
