Trivia

When Bernard is talking to Jim Hacker about checking official permission to enter number 10 Downing Street, he mentions that it is a "tradition more honored in the breach than the observance", explaining that it is from Shakespeare. He is, in fact, quoting Hamlet talking to Horatio in Act 1, Scene 4. See more »
