      • Jim Hacker: I want this traced at once. It must have been someone at yesterday's meeting.
        Sir Humphrey: Well, I'll set up a leak inquiry straight away.
        Jim Hacker: I don't want a leak inquiry. I want to find out who did it.

      • Jim Hacker: Now about nailing that leak...
        Bernard Woolley: I'm sorry to be pedantic, but if you nail a leak you make another.

      • Sir Humphrey: The purpose of minutes is not to record events, it is to protect people.

      • Sir Humphrey: It's up to you, Bernard, what do you want?
        Bernard Woolley: I want to have a clear conscience.
        Sir Humphrey: A clear conscience.
        Bernard Woolley: Yes
        Sir Humphrey: When did you acquire this taste for luxuries?

      • Bernard Woolley: Well, thinking back on what I said, and what they said, and what I said you said, and what they may say I said you said, or what they may have thought I said I thought you thought, well, they may say I said I thought you said you thought...
        Jim Hacker: Go on, Bernard.
        Bernard Woolley: Well, I think I said you said you thought ... you were above the law.
        Jim Hacker: YOU SAID THAT?!
        Bernard Woolley: Well, not intentionally. It is just the way it came out. I am terribly sorry but they were asking me all these questions.
        Jim Hacker: Bernard, just because people ask you questions, what makes you think you have to answer them?
        Bernard Woolley: Well, I don't know.
        Jim Hacker: You never answered my questions just because I ask them.
