Quotes

DCS Christopher Foyle: Where's your wife?

Sir Reginald Walker: She's left me.

DCS Christopher Foyle: Not much of a day for you, is it? Your wife, your son... your business.

Sir Reginald Walker: My business?

DCS Christopher Foyle: [pointing at the golden box] Do you know what this is?

Sir Reginald Walker: It's a gift.

DCS Christopher Foyle: But you know what it is?

Sir Reginald Walker: It's solid gold and it's a gift given to my company in recognition of succesful trade relations.

DCS Christopher Foyle: A gift from whom?

Sir Reginald Walker: The office for trade.

DCS Christopher Foyle: The German office for trade?

Sir Reginald Walker: Yes.

DCS Christopher Foyle: And you didn't disclose the theft of it because...?

Sir Reginald Walker: Because my son did not declare it, he smuggled it into this country from Switzerland, a few weeks ago.

DCS Christopher Foyle: Well, you're right. It is solid gold, hasn't been declared, certainly came to the country recently and might well have come from the office for trade, Sir Reginald. But it first of all came through a Department of the Third Reich known as the Vermögensverkehrsstelle, the Property Transfer Office, which deals with property acquired by the Nazis. This is a Jewish artifact, made in Frankfurt in the 18th century by Jeremiah Sobel, and until six weeks ago, it belonged to a family called the Rothenbergs, who used it as a prayer book holder. The family, all four of them, were shot and their home looted by the Nazis. And once it's generally known that you're a beneficiary of this Nazi "reallocation" of property, how long do you think you and your company have got?

[he picks up his hat and turns to leave]

DCS Christopher Foyle: One or two things bigger than business, wouldn't you say?

Sir Reginald Walker: ...Aren't you going to arrest me?

DCS Christopher Foyle: Well, on behalf of a very dear friend of mine, I'd say it's no longer necessary.

Sir Reginald Walker: [to Foyle] Let me tell you something, Mr. Foyle. You may be at war, but I'm not - because business is bigger than war.

Simon Walker: You see, that's what I learned in Germany: when someone gets in your way, you have to act! That's the genius of Hitler. In a way, that makes him the greatest businessman of all.

Sir Reginald Walker: [sees his wife] I just want to say that I'm extremely sorry that I spoke to you in the way that I did. I will see that the child is all right, and give some sort of compensation if necessary. It was a complete loss of control. It will never happen again.

Lady Alice Walker: It wasn't control that you lost. It was the pretence.

Sir Reginald Walker: I'm sorry?

Lady Alice Walker: That you're a civilised man.

[walks past him]
