[arriving at Hanbury House]

Chief Inspector Morse: Restored of course - look at that window.

Detective Sergeant Lewis: All that stonework, must take months to do the pointing.

Chief Inspector Morse: You're not a bloody mason, are you?

Detective Sergeant Lewis: No such luck - I might have been a Chief Inspector by now if I was.

Chief Inspector Morse: "Were", Lewis, if you "were". You'll never get on if you can't master your subjunctives. Keep touching your forelock, we may be back in Oxford before lunch.

Detective Sergeant Lewis: Shouldn't that be "might"?
