Lucy Hacker: It's because the badgers don't have votes, isn't it?
Jim Hacker: Eh?
Lucy Hacker: If the badgers had votes, you wouldn't be exterminating them. No, you'd be up there at Hayward Spinney, shaking paws and kissing cubs. Ingratiating yourself the way you always do!
Annie Hacker: Lucy, that's not a very nice thing to say.
Lucy Hacker: It's true, isn't it?
Annie Hacker: Yes, but Daddy's in politics. He has to be ingratiating.
