"Yes Minister: The Bed of Nails (#3.5)" (1982)
Sir Mark Spencer: [intending to dupe Hacker into taking a thankless job] But Sir Humphrey Appleby is bound to tell Hacker he'd be crazy to take it on.

Sir Mark Spencer: So did I.
Sir Arnold Robinson: Oh, I *am* sorry.

Sir Mark Spencer: I see. Then Hacker is the man!
