    Judy Molloy: Why wasn't I told about this?
    Malcolm Tucker: Why the fuck would I tell you it? I've told you to fuck off twice, and yet you're still here!
    Judy Molloy: You should tell me about it because it's a scheduled media appearance by this department's secretary of state, so therefore it falls well within my purview!
    Malcolm Tucker: Within your purview?
    Judy Molloy: Yes!
    Malcolm Tucker: Where do you think you are, in some fucking regency costume drama?! This is a government department! Not a fucking Jane fucking Austen novel!
    Simon Foster: Malcolm...
    Malcolm Tucker: Allow me to pop a jaunty little bonnet on your purview and ram it up the shitter with a lubricated horse-cock!
    Judy Molloy: Your swearing does not impress me. My husband works for Tower Hamlets and believe me, those kids make you sound like... Angela Lansbury!
    Malcolm Tucker: [to Simon] She's married? Poor bastard.
  • Simon Foster: Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Why didn't we nail the line?
    Judy Molloy: Simon, I did try to warn you.
    Simon Foster: Yes! Yes! You did try to warn me but you don't actually stop me did you?!
    Judy Molloy: I can't tackle you to the ground!
    Simon Foster: That's like shouting "Train!" as someone gets hit by a train! You should go; "Train! It's a fucking train!"
    Judy Molloy: [her phone rings] Bollocks!
    Simon Foster: [his phone rings also] Fuck, it's Malcolm!
    Judy Molloy: Mine's Malcolm too.
    Simon Foster: How does he do that?
    Malcolm Tucker: [talking on two mobiles] Simon, I don't like finding out about people employed by this government via the news unless they've just died. Be here, now!

    Malcolm Tucker: I'm here, I'm there, I'm fucking everywhere. I'm the egg man.
    Simon Foster: Have you come to insult me in a different timezone?
  • Malcolm Tucker: Karen Clark will want you to say that war is unforeseeable, and Linton Barwick will want you to talk about the "climb the mountain of conflict" line. You say nothing, okay? You stay detached, otherwise that's what I'll do to your retinas.
    Simon Foster: Right, can I go to bed now, please?
    Malcolm Tucker: No, no, no, no, no! You're gonna stay here, and you're gonna rehearse saying nothing!
    Simon Foster: Am I being tortured?
