  • Quotes

    • Sir Humphrey: Minister, I have something to say to you, which you may not like to hear.
      Jim Hacker: Why should today be any different?
      Sir Humphrey: Minister, the traditional allocation of executive responsibilities has always been so determined, as to liberate the ministerial incumbent from the administrative minutae, by devolving managerial functions to those whose experience and qualifications have better formed them for the performance of such humble offices, thereby releasing their political overlords for the more onerous duties and profound delibrations which are the inevitable concomitant of their exalted position.
      Jim Hacker: Now whatever make you think I wouldn't want to hear that?
      Sir Humphrey: Well, I thought it might upset you.
      Jim Hacker: How could it? I didn't understand a single word. Humphrey for God's sake, for once in your life, put it into plain English.
      Sir Humphrey: If you insist. You are not here to run this department.
