Commander out the back: "Ok, get ready to slow down".
Driver: "Full braking was engaged just after launch, sir."

Driver (stopping vehicle): Okay, time to dismount.

Keep driving, Hoskins. We're still over the river.

You can't fool me, Sir. The cables are exactly 0.3 KM long, and odometers don't lie.

When I joined the Pay Corps, I didn't realise this was how they carried out wire transfers.

Any Rigger will tell you Dual Blondells may be clever , but they are not as quick or convenient as a Skyhook .

When Hoskins laid a minefield across the track leading to the pub and didn't map them, it was a real spot of luck having Heath Robinson in the regiment...

Brilliant improvised crossing, Hoskins. Where did you get the cable?

Oh, I just borrowed a little from the bridge around the next bend.
