Very Big Man - Ministery of Telephones: there isn't one.
[taps the tray]
Very Big Man - Ministery of Telephones: So we can't have removed it. Naturally therefore, we can't replace it.

Kafka can be funny
5 March 2010 | by jsadurSee all my reviews

One of the more interesting, humorous and bizarre Young Indy episodes. Indy must receive a critical phone call in his Prague hotel room. Unfortunately there is no phone and Indy is thrown into a Kafkaesque nightmare trying to get one installed in time. Indeed, Franz Kafka himself is one of the clerks in the phone office. The bureaucratic labyrinth, arbitrary policies and uncaring sadism of the "system" Indy faces will be familiar to anyone who had ever dealt with government agencies. This episode takes a comedic and satirical approach to our fear of being a rat in a bureaucratic maze. Tim McInnerny is outstandingly creepy as Kafka.
