I want to make a speech at my father's funeral
Comrade Malenkov, you're view...
Well I think, um... it can be... no problem.
Technically yes, but practically...
There are programmatic complications...

- So, in accordance... - I call this meeting to order. My apologies. So, in accordance with his will, I propose Comrade Malenkov be named Chairman of the Council of Ministers and General Secretary of the Party. MALENKOV: And I propose Comrade Beria for First Vice-Chairman, Council of Ministers. So, let's take a vote. Those in favour? Those are two separate proposals. I suggest we vote one at a time. Those in favour? I'm unsure of what's being proposed. I just said what was being proposed. I just said it. And you're being obstructionist. Comrade Beria is busy combining his role as Minister for both Interior and Security. Wouldn't it be kinder if someone else carried the happy burden of Vice-Chairman? I thank Comrade Khrushchev for his concern, but I'm perfectly capable of doing two things at once. - Well, it's three things. - Should we bring in an abacus? All right, let's move to a vote on both proposals.
