[after seeing Fromage faint] What's the matter with Fromage?

Ferret:
The survey shows that...


[realizing the survey asked the wrong question]



Ferret:
... it shows that 90% of English families do not eat boot polish for breakfast.

Mrs. Ferret:
Have you been fired?



Ferret:
[brushing it off] Fired?


[laughs]



Ferret:
Hahaha! Fired? Hahahaha


[more nervous now]



Mrs. Ferret:
Then why is the car for sale?


[we see the car through the house window; in the side window there is a crudely written sign saying FORSALE]



Ferret:
Oh that? That's a mistake. That's one of Rimmer's cockups. That should read Fors Ale. A new beer we're advertising.


[as giving a slogan]



Ferret:
Fors Ale - keeps you hearty and hale.



Mrs. Ferret:
Well I've never heard of it.



Ferret:
And you may never! Very hush hush.

Priest:
Have you been able to find time for the survey in regard to the declining attendance in England's churches?



Michael Rimmer:
Yes, we have.



Priest:
We've tried everything, you know... cutthroat bingo, hallucinogens in the wafers, neon lights for the graveyards, chapels on wheels, fifty-fifty drawings after communion...



Michael Rimmer:
Really?



Priest:
[grabbing hold of his vestments] And these clothes are a bit out-of-date for the 1960s.



Michael Rimmer:
Yes, well, we've done a great deal of research on the results of our religious polls and I believe we have discovered the true root of the problem.



Priest:
What would that be?



Michael Rimmer:
God.



Priest:
I had a nasty suspicion it was that.



Michael Rimmer:
It's just that people have a hard time believing in Him. So, get rid of the God and you'll do just fine.



Priest:
Interesting. Sort of an "Our Father who *might be* in heaven"...



Michael Rimmer:
Yes, very good.
