WINSTON: [YOUR BEST CHURCHILL IMPRESSION. ALL UNUSUAL PRONUNCIATIONS ARE SPELT - IT ALL SPRINGS FROM HIS ODD WAY OF SAYING "NAZI"] We must face the darkness that is covering Europe. We must stand firm against the Nazzy menace.
HALIFAX: No we mustn't.
WINSTON: That's quite a leftfield opinion for a Foreign Secretary in 1940, Halifax.
HALIFAX: No. I definitely think we should fight against Hitler, but I also definitely know you don't say it Nazzies.
WINSTON: I do say it Nazzies!
HALIFAX: Yes, you say it Nazzies, I agree, but everybody else says it Nazis!
WINSTON: Including the Nazzies?
HALIFAX: Especially the Nazis, yes. They literally invented the word. You're saying it wrong. Nazzy doesn't sound like a fascist scourge; it sounds like a word to describe a pleasingly spruce shaving brush.
WINSTON: Which one of us is a celebrated rhetorician, Halifax, hmmm? I feel somewhat as though these subtleties of pronunciation are of less importance than our standing against the scourge of Nazzy [PRONOUNCED WITH A HARD G] Germany.
HALIFAX: It's Germany! It's not [HARD G] Germany. How can you not know that?
WINSTON: I've...been busy. Doing the war.
HALIFAX: Like what, exactly?
WINSTON: Studying our enemies! Seeking to understand the wiles of Hitler and Moossolliny and Todge-oooooo.
HALFIAX: You have to learn how to say all these names, Winston. It's really basic stuff. You look like an idiot. If you carry on saying Nazzy, history will just remember you as a fat dick. You'll probably be voted The Least Great Briton in History, or something.
WINSTON: I don't think it matters one smidgeen.
WINSTON: Smidgen, I meant smidgen. People want results, not names all correct, and stuff. And I know most of them, anyway.
HALIFAX: Where was the air raid that caused the first British civilian casualties?
WINSTON: Scaypay floff.
HALIFAX: Scapa Flow!! And which Norwegian city did the Germans take last month?
HALIFAX: No, Oslo.
HALIFAX: No, just Oslo. And where did we land troops in Norway in response to this?
WINSTON: Harstad, Narvik and Trondheim.
HALIFAX: [BEAT] I'm not sure about those ones, to be honest. But you won't get anywhere unless you can learn to pronounce these foreign words. You've got to think global, it's the twentieth century. We're all citizens of the world now.
WINSTON: We're at war with about half those citizens.
HALIFAX: Granted, but, you know, you still need to show some respect. Learn how to say these names or the British people will lose all respect for you.
WINSTON: Or...I could just call them all foreigners, with a kind of sneer. How do think the British people will go for that?
HALIFAX: Actually, that will probably be fine.
WINSTON: Hurrah! I'm the best Lord of the Admirality!
HALIFAX: It's Admiralty.
WINSTONL: Oh, f**k it, I'm off down the pub.
