David Rasche as Linton Barwick

  • (David Rasche) "'PWIP-PIP'? What is that, a report on bird-song?"
  • (David Rasche) "My golly, I can't see why anyone would choose to work in a glass office, huh? Glass offices, in my opinion, are for perverts."

  • (David Rasche) "Frosting is on cakes, huh? Now, what else happened in London?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "Ah, generally positive, two glitches --"

  • (Enzo Cilenti) "PWIP PIP."
  • (David Rasche) "What is it, a report on bird calls? What does it even stand for?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "I can't recall. It's factish. Intel for and against intervention."
  • (David Rasche) "We have all the facts on this we need. We don't need any more facts. In the land of truth, my friend, the man with one fact is the king. You said there was something else, what is that?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "In the meeting with the Foreign Office, the committee was accidentally and briefly alluded to."
  • (David Rasche) "Which committee?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "The --"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "The war committee, sir."
  • (David Rasche) "All right, Karen is not to know about this, huh? She is an excitable, yapping she-dog. Get a hold of those minutes. I have to correct the record."
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "We can do that?"
  • (David Rasche) "Yes, we can. Those minutes are an aide-memoire for us. They should not be a reductive record of what happened to have been said, but they should be more a full record of what was intended to have been said. I think that's the more accurate version, don't you?"
  • (David Rasche) "It's early days, my friends. All roads lead to Munich."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "'All roads lead to Munich -- ' What the fuck does that mean?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "Well, I think it means, uh -- actually, no, no, I don't know what it means."
  • (David Rasche) "I can't stand to see a woman bleed from the mouth. It reminds me of that Country & Western music which I cannot abide."

Paul Higgins as Jamie MacDonald

  • (Paul Higgins) "See that fax?"
  • (James Smith) "Yes."
  • (Paul Higgins) "That is your career. And I think it might be fucked, but let's just check. Yeah, yeah, it's pretty fucked. Now, I hope you can play the spoons, because you're too old to go back to being a gentleman's fluffer."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Well, if it isn't Humpty Numpty."
  • (Tom Hollander) "What is this? Surround bollocking?"
  • (Paul Higgins) "Hey, with due respect, I hadn't finished. If it isn't Humpty Numpty sitting on top of a collapsing wall like some clueless egg cunt. Now, I'm finished."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Hi, Jamie, this is Toby."
  • (Chris Addison) "Oh, um -- Toby Rice, I'm Simon's aide."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Hi, Toby, Toby. Very pleased to meet you. Please sit down. Now, right, that's enough of all the fucking Oxbridge pleasantries."
  • (Chris Addison) "What's Oxbridge about saying hello?"
  • (Paul Higgins) "Shut it, Love Actually. Do you want me to hole punch your face?"
  • (Peter Capaldi) "Right, I'm off to deal with the fate of the planet. Be gentle with them."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Oh, you know me, Malc. Kid gloves -- but made from real kids. Right, Butch and Gaydance, this wall story is playing badly. There's a cartoon of you in here as a walrus."
  • (Tom Hollander) "A walrus? I'm not fat, I don't even have a moustache. Fuck, they've given me tusks."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Wal-rus. You get it? Wal-rus, wal-rus."
  • (Chris Addison) "We called some builders. They didn't turn up when they said they would."
  • (Paul Higgins) "What did you expect? They're builders. Have you ever seen a film where the hero is a builder? No, no, because they never fucking turn up in the nick of time. Bat-builder? Spider-builder? Huh? That's why you never see a superhero with a hod."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Ah, right, Frank and Nancy Sinatra. I've got good news for you. You're NOT fired. That's great news, isn't it?"
  • (James Smith) "Well, it sounds ominous."
  • (Paul Higgins) "We want to get Liza Weld's PWIP PIP out there properly, in the public domain. We just need to refine it a bit."
  • (James Smith) "What do you want to refine?"
  • (Paul Higgins) "Just mess it up. Move the paragraphs. Change the name of the main informant."
  • (James Smith) "Well, that's a complete fabrication."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Changing his name doesn't matter. Do you think he's really called Ice Man? Huh? "To Mr and Mrs Man, a son -- Ice." So, change it to another name. What's the name of the fuck with the fiddle?"
  • (James Smith) "This happens to be Debussy."
  • (Olivia Poulet) "Debussy."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Well, we'll change it to Debussy, then."
  • (James Smith) "No, we will not."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Now, your prints are gonna be all over this, Michael, but that's the only way you can save your job, you leaky fuck."
  • (James Smith) "Don't make me do this."
  • (Olivia Poulet) "It wasn't him."
  • (James Smith) "Somebody must have come in there and used the fax machine. It could have been anyone."
  • (Paul Higgins) "Fax machine? Ah, no. Don't worry about that. No, I made that up. No, the document was leaked by e-mail. It's just, the fax machine was there, and it's easier to kick. Come on, Thick White Duke. Come with me."
  • (Paul Higgins) "OK. Your phone is off, but there's been a catastrofuck here. Someone's leaked Liza Weld's PWIP PIP paper to the BBC. I reckon it's going to be on the six o'clock news, one o'clock your time. That is going to fucking fist your UN vote to death. Right. Missing you loads. PWIP PIP toodle-oo."
  • (Paul Higgins) "You think that's his real name? Iceman? To Mr. and Mrs. Man, a son -- Ice?"
  • (Paul Higgins) "All right, that's enough with the fucking Oxbridge pleasantries."
  • (Chris Addison) "Wh -- What's Oxbridge about saying hello?"
  • (Paul Higgins) "SHUT IT, Love Actually. You want me to hole-punch your face?"

Mimi Kennedy as Karen Clarke

  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "So you're not resigning?"
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Are you still playing the hawk?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "Well, in -- in a way I'm playing a much cleverer game than that -- I'm a fake hawk."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "A what?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "-- Fake hawk?"
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "You're an idiot. Or are you a -- fake idiot?"
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "I am gonna go into Linton's office and I'm gonna pull the little pin on that fucking grenade."
  • (Anna Chlumsky) "Don't do that."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "I'm fucking joking. I'm not gonna do that."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "You're beautiful."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Oh, thank you. I'm sure you say that to all the girls."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Yes, I do -- And some of the soldiers, too."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "That's why you shouldn't run for office, bimbo eruptions."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Come on, don't believe that shit. I'm not gonna run for office. I'm just trying to do something different."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "It's one of the reasons I like you. I know your passion about education and housing and --"
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Lingerie."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "There you go."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Bestiality."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "I'd forgotten about that. Are you still allergic to the dog?"
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Yes, yes, I wake up and my eyes are closed and my head is swollen and I look like a giant ball sac."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Oh, my God. You know, they do have modern medication for that sort of thing. Beautiful ball sac, though."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Thank you very much."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Hey, listen, the war committee. What you have to do is you've got to look for the ten dullest-named committees happening out of the executive branch. Because Linton is not going to call it "The Big Horrible War Committee". He's gonna hide it behind a name like "Diverse Strategy", something so dull you're just gonna want to self-harm."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Yes, Assistant Secretary, on point six, it feels like there's already been an assumption that we're invading and don't you think that we should discuss the practical implications? I mean, this is, after all, the War Committee."
  • (David Rasche) "This is the Future Planning Committee."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Well, unofficially, it is called the War Committee."
  • (David Rasche) "Well, Karen, unofficially, we can call anything whatever we want. I mean, unofficially, this is a shoe, but it's not, Karen, it is a glass of water. And this is the Future Planning Committee."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Well, unofficially, this appears to be bullshit."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Linton has set up a secret war committee. I just know it. I mean, Linton is an absolute lunatic, Liza. He is dangerous. The voices in his head are now sing barbershop together."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "I was going to eat lunch in here. Can you digest? Do you want some food?"
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Oh, yes, I can digest, yes."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Chinese OK?"
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Why don't you order me some little mammals? A little bunny and a little puppy, and a little cat, so I can twist their fucking neck off and drink their blood."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "I'm a voracious reader. I'm the Gore Vidal of the Pentagon."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Gore's gay."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "No, he's not."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "I beg to differ, but --"
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "He's gay? 'Cause I've been saying that Gore Vidal line."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "He is gay."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Guess I'd better stop saying that then."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Has a decision already been made in principle to advocate invasion?"
  • (David Rasche) "I would refer you to the recent comments of our colleague from the UK, mister Simon Foster, in that regard."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Yes, I think that mister Foster would have something to say to that."
  • (Tom Hollander) "I'm certainly hearing both sides. In England we have a saying for a situation such as this, which is that it's difficult difficult lemon difficult."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "What's going on there, Simon?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "It's -- It's departmental business. It's about a wall."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "Oh, Gaza?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "Uh-huh."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "I'm wondering where you were in committee, Simon. I called for back-up and you sat there like a dumb sack of shit. Only maybe worse, because, actually, on a molecular level, shit is probably fizzling with energy."
  • (Tom Hollander) "I have to say, Karen, I do have a clear strategy on this, which is I'm playing the long game."
  • (Mimi Kennedy) "They've bounced us into a short game, and you just sat there like a -- What do you call it in England? A wanker."

Enzo Cilenti as Bob Adriano

  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "12:30."
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "Hold on. General? Yeah -- Secretary Linton Barwick asked me to let you know that his last meeting looks like it's overrunning, he sends his apologies."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "When will he be here?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "I don't have that information at this moment."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "What the fuck? Huh? Did he stand me up?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "No, no, sir. You're more than welcome to wait."
  • (Lt. Gen. George Miller) "Do you know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to take a nice big shit on his desk, just to let him know that I was here. Is that OK with you?"
  • (Enzo Cilenti) "I don't think he'd like that too much, sir."

Tom Hollander as Simon Foster

  • (Tom Hollander) "Tobes, I don't want to have to read you the riot act but I am going to have to read you some extracts from the riot act, like section one, paragraph one: don't leave your boss twisting in the wind and then burst in late, smelling like a pissed seaside donkey."
  • (Chris Addison) "Look, alright, I was late for the meeting, Simon, I am sorry, but it's not like I threw up in there, is it?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "No, you're right, I'm being unfair. I should be thanking you for not throwing up. Well done, you're a star. You didn't wet yourself, did you? You're in the right city. You didn't say anything overtly racist. You didn't pull your cock out and start plucking it and shouting "Willy Banjo". No, I'm being really unfair. You'd got so much right, without actually being there in the beginning of one of the most important moments of my career. Thanks, you're a legend."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Come in. I just wasn't expecting to see you here. Well, not physically here. You're always in my heart."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "I'm here. I'm there. I'm fuckin' everywhere. I'm the eggman."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Have you come to insult me in a different time zone?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "So, this is all going to spin along from here. We're going to have a vote and go to war. We'll fight people, kill them. Our children will get killed. This is exactly the sort of thing that I didn't want to do when I went into politics. This is the opposite of what I wanted to be doing."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "That's why you have to stay in Government, to influence things. In here, you can influence things, you can delay things. Out there, you're just another fucking mouthy, fucking shouty mad fucker who people don't want to make eye contact with. Remember Mary? Remember what happened? She took a stand on health. Everybody decided that she was mental."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Because The Sun showed a picture of her with wide eyes and her head on a cow."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "Well I happened to find that a particularly powerful image. Look, the Prime Minister of this country, he's not a fucking Viking, is he? He doesn't drink blood. He doesn't go around biting tramps."
  • (Tom Hollander) "I know the Prime Minister isn't a Viking, Malcolm."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "Unlike me, he abhors physical violence."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Where is the intelligence, the hard evidence?"
  • (Peter Capaldi) "We have got the fucking intelligence."
  • (Tom Hollander) "I haven't seen it."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "The intelligence we've got is so deep, so fucking hard, it'll fucking puncture your kidneys."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Where's it coming from?"
  • (Peter Capaldi) "There is an informant. Ice Man."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Ice Man?"
  • (Peter Capaldi) "I don't name them. Ice Man. Yeah. And the fact is, the stuff that he's given us is -- I've seen it. It would make your blood run cold and clot and turn your insides into fucking black puddings. But certain box lickers are sitting on it, but you're going to see it, because the PM regards you as a key player in this now."
  • (Tom Hollander) "That's not supposed to be out there --"
  • (Peter Capaldi) "Well, it is out there, it's out there now, lurking like a big hairy rapist at a coach station. You know, if I could, I'd punch you into paralysis."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Come on, Malcolm, he asked me for a personal opinion."
  • (Peter Capaldi) "Why didn't you say? He asked you. Fuck, of course, that explains it. If he'd asked you to fucking black up, or to give him your PIN number or to shit yourself, would you have done that?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "I would have blacked up, yes. It was radio, nobody would've known."
  • (Tom Hollander) "Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. Why didn't we nail the line?"
  • (Gina McKee) "Simon, I did try to warn you --"
  • (Tom Hollander) "Yes, you tried to warn me, but you didn't actually stop me, did you --"
  • (Gina McKee) "Well I can't tackle you to the ground --"
  • (Tom Hollander) "-- by shouting 'train' at somebody as they get hit by a train. You should go 'train. there's a fucking train.'"
  • (Tom Hollander) "Okay, off you go."
  • (Chris Addison) "What do you mean?"
  • (Tom Hollander) "I've got this covered. Go and find the next thing. Talk to that Chad boy, the boy from "The Shining." He knows things."
  • (Chris Addison) "Don't make me pump Chad."
  • (Tom Hollander) "No, I'm making you pump Chad. It'll be easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy."
  • (Chris Addison) "No, it won't. It'll be difficult-difficult-lemon-difficult. That is what it will be. Have a lovely afternoon. Stop a war for me."

Alex Macqueen as Sir Jonathan Tutt

  • (Alex Macqueen) "Let me tell you the process here, Malcolm, and why that's not possible --"
  • (Peter Capaldi) "Just fucking do it. Otherwise you'll find yourself in some medieval war zone in the Caucasus with your arse in the air, trying to persuade a group of men in balaclavas that sustained sexual violence is not the fucking way forward."
  • (Alex Macqueen) "So, you must be Simon. I'm the British Ambassador to the UN, Sir Jonathan Tutt. Well, this is it, ladies and gentlemen. This is the United Nations. We, sir, are in here.
