"Cor blimey, Mr Martin! You think there's going to be trouble?"

"Oh, goodness no! We'll just call it 'pre-testing post-production retrofitting' or some such and bill the taxpayers as usual, Mr Lockheed."

"Sounds like time for a celebratory drink then, Mr Martin!"

"Indeed, Mr Lockheed. Trebles all round."
