    • Jim Hacker: Plenty of room for television cameras, won't there?
      Sir Humphrey: Yes.
      Jim Hacker: Outside Number Ten, along the route, outside the Abbey, inside the Abbey. One pointing directly at my pew.
      Sir Humphrey: wouldn't that mean putting the cameraman in the pulpit?
      Jim Hacker: Will that be all right?
      Sir Humphrey: Well, it won't leave a lot of room for the Arch Bishop.
      Jim Hacker: Well, so where will he preach from?
      Sir Humphrey: I think he'll need to be in the pulpit.
      Jim Hacker: Where will my camera be?
      Sir Humphrey: Well, there is always the High Altar, but I think the Arch Bishop may need that as well.
      Jim Hacker: Who does he think he is?
      Sir Humphrey: Well, he probably thinks it is a religious ceremony. Nobody has told him it is a Party Political.
