Quotes:
From "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: Return to the Circus (#1.1)" (1979)
Roddy Martindale: So who's pulling the strings for Percy Puppet? How about dashing Bill Haydon? Your old rival, in every sense I'm told. Of course, he never was orthodox, was he?... All right then, it's Roy Bland, the shop-soiled white coat, the first Red darling to make the Circus. And if it's neither of them, and Control's really dead, then there's only one possible explanation: it's someone who's pretending to be in retirement. You, George! Admit it!
George Smiley: You featherhead, Martindale! You pompous, bogus, gossiping old featherhead!
