Phillipe: I thought God made us.
Baines: Trouble is, we take a hand in the game.

Mrs. Baines: What do you mean by that?

Joseph Finsbury: I was in the water closet of the Bournemouth express when it quite unaccountably exploded, thereby extensively damaging the rest of the train. I can't really think that I was to blame, although at the time I was smoking.
