Mort Fowler:
Find anything?



Lowry:
Nothing but rags and dust so far.



Dale:
You think the treasure's in this place?



Mort Fowler:
If it ain't, there's a clue to tell us where it is. Nobody knows about this place but us. There'll be plenty of time to search.



Dale:
Not now you haven't. That's why the Chief sent me out here.



Mort Fowler:
What do ya mean?



Dale:
That new land bill has been passed and signed. As soon as Andy Knight finishes that link to the Al-Can Highway, this territory will be thrown open to the homesteaders.



Mort Fowler:
You mean someone is liable to find the treasure before we do and stake a claim on it?



Dale:
That's right. So, the Chief says we gotta delay the road work

I don't think there's any doubt about that. Tell me why... .

Theodore Honey:
I tried to get them to ground the airplane, they wouldn't lsiten to me and the lever was right there so I just, I... .



Monica Teasdale:
You just pulled it. Don't those things cost an awful lot of money?



Theodore Honey:
Oh a tremendous amount of money! This is going to cause a good deal of trouble.



Monica Teasdale:
I should think it might.



Theodore Honey:
I don't know what they're going to do. I've never had any experience with anything like this before.



Monica Teasdale:
I should think nobody has. I think this is a kind of world record.

[Reggie, in full-fledged breakdown mode, is dictating a letter]



Reginald Perrin:
Your complaints about late delay are not only completely unjustified, but also ungrammatical. The fault lies in your inability to fill in an order form correctly. You are, in effect, a pompous, illiterate baboon.

Jimmy Armstrong:
Compost heaps, pros and cons. Credit side - Big enough. Nice and warm. Element of surprise when attacked by compost heap considerable. Debit side - Smelly, bad for morale. Field of vision limited. Delay in getting out of compost heap considerable. And, erm, anyway we haven't got any. Careful consideration, but on balance, "thumbs down".



Reginald Perrin:
Congratulations, Jimmy. Well done!



Jimmy Armstrong:
Why? What for?



Reginald Perrin:
For deciding it shouldn't be compost heaps.

Constance Flynn Hazard:
I am the wife of General Hazard Captain Bradley?



Bradley:
I am the aide-de-camp of the general I should talk to him with a certain urgence



Constance Flynn Hazard:
I see



Bradley:
I would prefer to talk to you alone



George Hazard:
Unless they are military secrets I don't keep anything hidden to my wife



Bradley:
This is is not an official meeting but I wanted to warn you in time Since two years The Department of War receives complaints about flawy guns produced by the Axol Iron do you know this firm?



George Hazard:
I have never heard about it



Bradley:
A formal enquiry has been opened only recently and it was ascertained that Axol Iron is the cover-name of another weapon factory the Hazard Iron works



Constance Flynn Hazard:
But it is ridiculous don't you believe that George might involved in dirty affairs?



Bradley:
it was ascertained also that these guns produced with flawy metallic leagues burst after a lengthened use it seems that some artillery men have been killed by the explosion of their guns



George Hazard:
oh my god



Constance Flynn Hazard:
but everybody knows that in absence of George it was his brother Stanley to lead the factory



Bradley:
Unfortunately the signature of the general is on many papers which connect the two factories



George Hazard:
someone must have falsified my signature



Constance Flynn Hazard:
somebody inside the firm



Bradley:
Unfortunately you must prove it



Constance Flynn Hazard:
My husband has risked to die , has undergone unutterable and unspeakable sufferings in prison and his government can arrive to accuse him of such a crime?



Bradley:
I agree with you otherwise I would not be here but it seems that all clues are against you general



George Hazard:
Captain you said that it was an unofficial meeting how much time do I have to prove my innocence?



Bradley:
I fear that it will be issued an order of capture within a few hours



Constance Flynn Hazard:
Can't you delay it can you?



Bradley:
I would like to do it but I have discovered it only this morning



George Hazard:
Captain is there anything else you can tell me? is there any other indication that you can give me?



Bradley:
It seems that there is a fellow called Morgan,although there are no precise clues against him it seems that he is involved in dirty affairs with more than a factory



George Hazard:
do you know where I might find him?

President:
Are we on? This is... this is the President. I have just been informed that the midrange military bases at Beta Durani and Proxima 3 have fallen to the Minbari advance. We have lost contact with Io and must presume they have fallen to an advance force. Intelligence believes the Minbari intend to bypass Mars and hit Earth directly. They say the attack could come at any time. We have... we have continued to broadcast our surrender and a plea for mercy. They have not responded. We can only conclude that we stand at the twilight of the human race. To buy time for more evacuation transports to leave Earth, we ask for the support of every ship capable of fighting to take part in a last defense of our home world. We will not lie to you: survival is not a possibility. Those who enter the battle will never come back. But for every ten minutes we can delay the enemy advance, several hundred more civilians may be able to escape to neutral territory. Though Earth may fall, the human race must have a chance to continue elsewhere. No greater sacrifice has ever been asked of a people. But I ask you now to step forward one last time, one last battle to hold the line against the night. God go with you all.

President Palmer:
Make no mistake: if we unleash our military power on nations that later prove innocent, it will rank as one of the most despicable sneak attacks in history. Any chance for peace in the Middle East will vanish forever. Even if it'll cost American lives in the future, we must delay this attack until we are certain of our ground.

Dr. Stephen Maturin:
Jack, have you forgotten your promise?



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Subject to the requirements of the service. I cannot delay for the sake of an iguana or a giant peccary. Fascinating, no doubt, but of no immediate application.



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
There is, I think, an opportunity here to serve both our purposes. As I understand it, this is a long, thin island. You need to sail around it. I could walk across it. I have known you to spend hours staring into a deserted bird's nest. I could walk briskly, pausing only for important measurements. Making discoveries that could advance our knowledge of natural history.



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
If wind and tide had been against us, I should have said yes. They're not. I'm obliged to say no.



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
Oh, I see. So after all this time in your service, I must simply content myself to form part of this belligerent expedition, hurry past wonders, bent on destruction. I say nothing of the corruption of power...



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
You forget yourself, Doctor.



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
No, Jack, no. You've forgotten yourself. For my part, I look upon a promise as binding.



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
The promise was conditional. I command a king's ship, not a private yacht! WE DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR DAMNED HOBBIES, SIR!

It was an amazing performance because it's not easy to sit through a long rain delay and have the same intensity. It's not easy to start and stop, and that's what Matt did successfully.
