brittymarie68 In which Martin gets himself a bobsleigh (the forth member of which is a princess), the king of Liechtenstein is eight years old, and it's always useful to have a princess around to rescue you from dragons. Episode twenty-two: Vaduz. "DOUGLAS: So … Martin. What sort of team would your exes make?
MARTIN: What? No team. You know I’ve never been married.
DOUGLAS: Mmm, but what about ex-girlfriends?
MARTIN: I’m not telling you that.
DOUGLAS: Okay.
MARTIN: That’s private.
DOUGLAS: Absolutely. Forget I asked.
(Pause.)
MARTIN: How-how-how-how many people in a bobsled?
DOUGLAS: Four.
MARTIN: Oh.
DOUGLAS: There’s five in a basketball team, if that helps.
MARTIN: It doesn’t.
DOUGLAS: Ah. I don’t think there’s anything with three.
MARTIN: No … (he sighs) … there wouldn’t be.
DOUGLAS: Hang on; I’ll look it up.
MARTIN: There’s really no need.
DOUGLAS: Pétanque!
MARTIN: What?
DOUGLAS: There’s three players in a pétanque team! You know, boules – like old Frenchmen play.
MARTIN (with a resigned tone): Go on, then.
DOUGLAS: What?
MARTIN: Well, I know you only asked me so I would ask you. What sort of a team would your ex-girlfriends be?
DOUGLAS: Hmmm. Well, you know the start of the London Marathon …?
***
DOUGLAS: Martin, let us be perfectly clear: the good ship Douglas Making Fun of Martin’s Medals set sail the moment you took the decision to put on some medals. The voyage is now well underway, and I can only suggest you relax and enjoy it. What’s the other one?
MARTIN: … It’s … my Millennium Star.
DOUGLAS: Is it?! And that’s awarded for …?
MARTIN: I think you know what it’s for.
DOUGLAS: I have a wild hope, certainly, but surely it’s too good to be true.
MARTIN: It was awarded – by the Queen – to all serving members of the Armed Forces and Cadet Corps … to commemorate the new millennium.
DOUGLAS (delightedly): It is! You’re going to meet the King of Liechtenstein wearing a medal you got for being alive in the year two thousand!" #cabinpressure

brittymarie68 In which Carolyn is stranded in Ireland with Captain Winnie-the-Pooh, and peach schnapps is to Arthur as water is to Gremlins. Episode twenty-one: Uskerty. "MARTIN (urgently): Douglas, quick. I need your help.
DOUGLAS: Martin … Good Lord, you’re soaking wet.
MARTIN: Yes, well, it’s raining outside. Look …
DOUGLAS: What happened to your uniform?
MARTIN: I tore it falling out of a tree …
DOUGLAS: Yes, but what’s that all over it?
MARTIN: Oh, er, goose droppings, but …
DOUGLAS: Is your hand okay?
MARTIN (increasingly rapidly): No, a bee stung me …
DOUGLAS: What are you carrying?
MARTIN (frantically): What does it look like?! A stuffed sheep!
DOUGLAS: You see, Arthur? The master.
MARTIN: Douglas, listen. There’s a truck full of geese outside and one of them ate my Dad’s ring and I don’t know which one and I know there’s nothing you can do but is there anything you can do?
DOUGLAS: Gosh. Well, it’s a-a bit of a tall order, Martin, even for me.
MARTIN (more quietly): You can’t do anything?
DOUGLAS: I didn’t say that. Gerry.
GERRY: Douglas.
DOUGLAS: This is Martin. Martin is a man who would like to discover which of a truckload of geese has swallowed a valuable ring. Martin, this is Gerry. Gerry is a man who wishes he could get more use out of his metal-detecting gate. Perhaps you two could have a profitable discussion.
GERRY: Oh, grand!
CAROLYN (urgently as she hurries over): Come on, come on. Where are you all? Twelve minutes.
MARTIN: Er, yes, Carolyn. But, er, b-before that, though, I-I just want to very quickly X-ray all the geese.
CAROLYN: You what?! No, I’m sorry, Martin, I’m very sorry, but there is no time! Now come on!
MARTIN (firmly): No. I’m sorry, Carolyn. I carried the sheep for you. I climbed the tree. I rode the back of the truck. But now I have to X-ray these geese.
DOUGLAS: Always the extra mile." #cabinpressure

sherlockedtietjens I have a theory this is how #otterbatch started, thanks to #CabinPressure #OttteryStMary
ARTHUR: Why’s it called that, then, Skip?
MARTIN: What?
ARTHUR: Ottery St Mary.
MARTIN: I’ve no idea.
ARTHUR: Do you know, Douglas?
DOUGLAS: Yes.
MARTIN: Do you?
DOUGLAS: Certainly I do. You see, St Mary is the patron saint of Devon and she, of course, was famously martyred by being eaten alive by otters.
ARTHUR: Really?
DOUGLAS: Oh yes – rabid otters. So she’s always portrayed in pictures absolutely covered in otters.
ARTHUR: What, eating her?
DOUGLAS: Sometimes, in the more fire and brimstone churches. Elsewhere, the assumption is they’re all in heaven now and have made up, so they’re just shown milling about her, nuzzling her affectionately and offering her ottery kisses and gifts of haddock.
MARTIN: Douglas …
ARTHUR: Why would the otters go to heaven if they ate a saint?
DOUGLAS: You’ve put your finger, Arthur, as is so often your way, on the crux of a thorny theological problem. So far, our best guess is simply that St Peter’s got a real soft spot for otters. He looks into those whiskery faces and goes … (in an affectionate voice) … “You guys! I can’t stay mad at you!” and lets them into heaven. #funny #bbcradio #benedictcumberbatch #martincrieff #captainmartincrieff #funnybatch 🚖🍋

brittymarie68 In which Timbuktu is neither Chinese nor fictional, and is actually Guspini. (Timbuktu Timbuktu means Timbuktu.) Episode twenty: Timbuktu. "DOUGLAS: You’ve done nothing but say things since we started.
ARTHUR: Oh, you mean my interesting facts about Timbuktu.
CAROLYN: Arthur, we are not in Timbuktu. We are in Sardinia, which is an island in Italy.
(Stunned silence, then Arthur gasps.)
ARTHUR: … I thought we were …
CAROLYN: Yes, I know you did; and so does Mr. Birling, so please, stop loudly pointing out how much unlike the centre of Africa everything is.
*****
MR. BIRLING:..... What is going on?
MARTIN and DOUGLAS and CAROLYN (simultaneously): Nothing.
MR. BIRLING: You’re very quiet suddenly.
(Arthur whimpers.)
MR. BIRLING: I said, what’s going on?
(Arthur whines.)
MR. BIRLING: What. Is. Going. On?
ARTHUR (hysterically, rapidly): Nothing! Nothing’s going on! We’re in Timbuktu, and everything’s totally normal and you can get pizzas anywhere these days, and camels are really shy actually and it’s nothing like Sardinia, which I’ve never been to, and I’m not going to, and I’m definitely not in now!
CAROLYN: Arthur! Stop talking!
ARTHUR (high-pitched, rapidly): I don’t think I can remember how!
CAROLYN: Someone else say something! Anything!
MARTIN (panic stricken): Er, er, er, er … Oh, look over there, Mr. Birling! From up here, you can see the sea!
MR. BIRLING (grimly): The sea?
DOUGLAS: Well, maybe not quite anything." #cabinpressure

jess_marie_g Arthur: I've always wanted to go to Timbuktu! It sounds brilliant, like a cross between. ..
Douglas: No wait let me guess, a cockatoo obviously...
Arthur: Yes, yeah.
Douglas: ... and umm... err no, I give up.
Arthur: And my friend Tim Buckley!
Douglas: Of course! Silly of me!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Martin: Really sorry Carolyn, but what I've actually learned after five years at MJN is never to side against Douglas on Birling Day.

fandomwearables Zurich is around the corner and it's so hard to say goodbye to this series. I already said goodbye to Middle Earth yesterday, and now I've got to say goodbye to Cabin Pressure too! Why can't things go on forever and ever?! On a happier note, I absolutely LOVE this bit of dialogue. I always ended up Lol-ing when I hear it.

brittymarie68 In which the crew of MJN Air uses one of GERTI's engines to make a goose smoothie. Episode nineteen: St. Petersburg. "DOUGLAS: Exterior checks completed.
MARTIN: That was very quick.
DOUGLAS: Yes. Well at 6am in St Petersburg in February, one does not tend to dawdle. It’s definitely our plane and the wings are on it, that’ll do me. Now, Carolyn, can I have the keys to the drinks cupboard I need some vodka.
CAROLYN: Why certainly Douglas, the perfect pre-flight treat for a man who hasn’t drunk for a decade. And can I tempt you with a little heroin to follow?" #cabinpressure
