Linton Barwick:
My golly, I can't see why anyone would choose to work in a glass office, huh? Glass offices, in my opinion, are for perverts.
Bob Adriano:
I could request the glass be frosted.
Linton Barwick:
Frosting is on cakes, huh? Now, what else happened in London?
Bob Adriano:
Ah, generally positive, two glitches...
Linton Barwick:
Really, what?
Bob Adriano:
Karen flagged a report by one of her staffers. She's obviously trying to use it as some kind of roadblock. It's called PWIP PIP.
Linton Barwick:
PWIP what?
Bob Adriano:
PWIP PIP.
Linton Barwick:
What is it, a report on bird calls? What does it even stand for?
Bob Adriano:
I can't recall. It's factish. Intel for and against intervention.
Linton Barwick:
We have all the facts on this we need. We don't need any more facts. In the land of truth, my friend, the man with one fact is the king. You said there was something else, what is that?
Bob Adriano:
In the meeting with the Foreign Office, the committee was accidentally and briefly alluded to.
Linton Barwick:
Which committee?
Bob Adriano:
The...
[quietly]

Bob Adriano:
The war committee, sir.
Linton Barwick:
All right, Karen is not to know about this, huh? She is an excitable, yapping she-dog. Get a hold of those minutes. I have to correct the record.
Bob Adriano:
We can do that?
Linton Barwick:
Yes, we can. Those minutes are an aide-memoire for us. They should not be a reductive record of what happened to have been said, but they should be more a full record of what was intended to have been said. I think that's the more accurate version, don't you?

Your career. My golly, I can't see why anyone would choose to work in a glass office, huh? Glass offices, in my opinion, are for perverts. I could request the glass be frosted. Frosting is on cakes, huh? Now, what else happened in London? Ah, generally positive, two glitches. . . Really, what? Karen flagged a report by one of her staffers. She's obviously trying to use it as some kind of roadblock. lt's called PWIP PIP. - PWIP what? - PWIP PIP. What is it, a report on bird calls? What does it even stand for? I can't recall. It's factish. Intel for and against intervention. We have all the facts on this we need. We don't need any more facts. In the land of truth, my friend. . . . .the man with one fact is the king. You said there was something else, what is that? In the meeting with the Foreign Office, the committee was accidentally and briefly alluded to. Which committee? The. . . The war committee, sir. All right, Karen is not to know about this, huh? She is an excitable, yapping she-dog. Get a hold of those minutes. I have to correct the record. - We can do that? - Yes, we can. Those minutes are an aide-mémoire for us. They should not be a reductive record of what happened to have been said, but they should be more a full record of what was intended to have been said. I think that's the more accurate version, don't you? - Sir. - Right. I don't like this section, let's cut that. Aye aye, sir. Let's reverse this. That was something Karen said, sir. Well, it's not right, so let's change it. - Aye, aye, sir. - And. . . And I like. . . I like this. Ah, thank you, sir. Yeah, let's say everyone agreed with that, huh? So. . . So the car will pick you up from the airport. It's supposed to be quite a good one, I believe. The Americans are doing that. I've just got the contact numbers. What's she so fucking happy about? She's probably just on a personal call. (Judy laughs) Why has she got control of the blinds? I think it's. . . I'm a government minister and I don't have control of my own blinds. I could order you some blinds. I could order you some nice, heavy curtains, with swags and a pelmet maybe. Yes, do that. OK. Will you come with me? So, listen. . .my team for the US, Team Simon. . . I'm thinking of taking you and leaving Judy. I could work with that, definitely. Plus, she can be a bit, you know. . . "Everything's a bit shit, isn't it?" Like that. Yeah, it's true. No, she can be, "Oh, so you're the President and I'm supposed to be impressed by that?" "My husband works in Tower Hamlets. Meh, meh, meh." "Which is much harder than being President." Yeah, OK. Well, that's settled. Fuck it, she's staying here. Go and tell her. What? KAREN:: Well, that moves us on to any other business. I think I've flagged everything that I need to discuss, as I usually do. Everything you're preparedto discuss. What is that? What are you doing? I understand you've started a new committee, Linton. What is that called? What makes you think that? It was mentioned at our meeting in London. Well, you must have misheard me. No. I misheard the word "committee"? Maybe it was another word. Like, say, Khomeini. - You're sitting on a new Khomeini? - Possibly. There are a lot of words.
