  • Quotes

    • (Sir Humphrey has just proven that, despite what the Prime Minister says, he still knows Latin.)
      Sir Humphrey Appleby:Si tacuisses, philosophus mansisses.
      Jim Hacker: What does that mean?
      Sir Humphrey Appleby: If you'd kept your mouth shut, we might have thought you were clever.
      Jim Hacker: I beg your pardon?!
      Sir Humphrey Appleby: Oh, not you, Prime Minister. No, that's the translation.
      Bernard Woolley: No one would ever have thought Sir Humphrey was saying that about you.
      Sir Humphrey Appleby: Go away, Bernard, please.
