Sleeping in the streets and pulling out their hair for someone they never knew. And they think we're mad!


[discussing the guest list for Diana's funeral] A chorus line of soap stars and homosexuals.

[Getting her car stuck in a ford] Oh, bugger it.

[To Tony Blair] If you imagine I'm going to drop everything and come down to London before I attend to my grandchildren who've just lost their mother... then you're mistaken. I doubt there is anyone who knows the British people more than I do, Mr. Blair, nor who has greater faith in their wisdom and judgement. And it is my belief that they will any moment reject this... this "mood", which is being stirred up by the press, in favor of a period of restrained grief, and sober, private mourning. That's the way we do things in this country, quietly, with dignity. That's what the rest of the world has always admired us for.

[to Tony Blair about her negative popularity] I don't think I have ever been hated like that.

Will someone please save these people from themselves!

That woman has given her whole life in service to her people. Fifty years doing a job SHE never wanted! A job she watched kill her father. She's executed it with honor, dignity, and, as far as I can tell, without a single blemish, and now we're all baying for her blood! All because she's struggling to lead the world in mourning for someone who... who threw everything she offered back in her face. And who, for the last few years, seemed committed 24/7 to destroying everything she holds most dear!

[to the Queen] Move over, Cabbage.

Your tea is getting cold!

Elton John wishes to sing at the funeral. Should be a first for Westminster Abbey.

"Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown" - Henry IV, Part II

Cherie Blair: [to Tony] Mister saviour of the Monarchy!

Alastair Campbell: [to Tony Blair] They, er, sent a copy of the Queen's speech. Might want to scrape the frost off it first... Oh, I phoned them with a couple of suggestions, to make it sound like it came from a human being.

Reporter: [first lines] After weeks of campaigning on the road, Tony Blair and his family finally strolled the few hundred yards to the polling station this election day morning. Amongst the Labour faithful up and down the country, there is an enormous sense of pride in Mr. Blair's achievements, and the confidence that he is about to become the youngest prime minister this century.

HM Queen Elizabeth II: [to her husband] Have you heard from the Spencers on what they wish to do with the funeral?
HM The Queen Mother: Oh no, no one tells me anything.
