The Twelve Quotes of Bryant & May: No.6

Bryant and May


(Sergeant Janice Longbright attempts entry into a group that meets in a pub)

‘I’m here for the Conspirators’ Club,’ said Longbright.

‘Well of course, you would say that, wouldn’t you? You could have read that on our website. Anyone could have read that, found out the address and just come in here off the street, and we have no way of knowing if they’re friend or foe. Do you know the password?’

‘Oh, give over, Stanley, how can she know the password when you keep changing it?’ asked a pleasant-faced woman in her mid-forties. ‘Last week it was Inkerman, this week it’s Bisto, how are we supposed to keep track? Just let the lady come in, for Heaven’s sake.’

From ‘The Victoria Vanishes’

    These snapshots really set off your crafting of tight, character-revealing and humorous scenes (in this case the Conspirator’s Club). And this snippet was clipped from which novel, again?

    The Victoria Vanishes! Looooove that one. I had to wait for a bit to get it here in my part of the world but it was worth it!
