Jeeves and Wooster (TV Series)
Bertie: You can't be a successful dictator *and* design women's underclothing.
Jeeves: No, sir.
Bertie: One or the other. Not both.
Jeeves: Precisely, sir.
[Madeline knocks on her father's study door, planning to announce her engagement]
Sir Watkyn Bassett: Come in!
[she opens it]
Sir Watkyn Bassett: Madeline, my dear, what can I do for you.
Madeline Bassett: Daddy, there's something I have to tell you...
[She goes in, closing the door. Nothing can be heard for a few moments, until... ]
Sir Watkyn Bassett: [from within] Bertie Wooster? NOOOOO! Oh, dear God, Madeline, not that!
Bertie: The problem is, I've forgotten that jolly useful word you unearthed.
Bertie: The one that always reduces Spode to a quivering mass of apology. I have a feeling I may need it.
Jeeves: You are referring, I think, sir, to "Eulalie."
Bertie: Eulalie, that's it! I wish you'd tell me what it meant. I mean, I have no complaints, but it's a bit like holding up a bank and not knowing whether your gun is loaded or not.
Jeeves: I fear I'm not at liberty to disclose the details, sir. You may rest assured, however, that the weapon is loaded.
Augustus 'Gussie' Fink-Nottle: Oh, don't talk rot, Spode!
Roderick Spode: I am not in the habit of talking rot!
Augustus 'Gussie' Fink-Nottle: Well, I must say you're doing dashed well for a beginner.
