Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Bathroom's locked, you say? Oh dear. I'll try to find the key.

Even if you find the key, I think you shall shortly discover that the lock rusted solid some time ago....

Excellent a place to have my pipe or a cigar with my wine.

I do say though, do you chaps have anything in the form on entertainment here?

A Butler, two Doormen, three Valets, God only knows how many Waiters, Bartenders and the washing up staff!

How in heavens name is a gentlemen supposed to remember all these peoples names?

I make a motion that from this moment on we give all the staff the common name of Humphrey. Just to avoid any confusion.

Do I have a second?

I dare say we shall NOT! A Gentleman should know the names of his superiors and his subordinates, my good man!

How would you feel if they called all of us by the same name?

Not strictly so, I have heard at least one of them call me something else on more than one occasion.  I won't repeat their manner of addressing me as this is rather polite company, but I suppose really one should expect it after I set a member of the staff on fire just last week.

Surely not, They are hand picked and flogged daily to make them know where they stand in the great picture, I mean this one I'm resting my boots on seems happy enough, time for more port I think.

I treat anyone under my employ or as such with great respect. I'd rather not awaken with a knife in my chest, or a lead ball, or plasma bolt having sheered through my body.

Evening Gentlemen. Hope you don't mind me joining you. Just arrived last night and still getting a feel for this place, but I must ask-

Do they serve whiskey here?

What utter nonsense!
I sight precedence, Pratts a gentlemen’s club in London established in 1857.

To avoid confusion, all male staff members are referred to as 'George'. This caused a dilemma when the first (and so far, only) female steward was hired in the 1980s. The problem was solved when it was decided that she would be called 'Georgina'

Notable members have included Maurice Harold Macmillan, 1st Earl of Stockton, OM, PC and  Randolph Churchill.

Gentlemen all! If its good enough for them it should jolly well be good enough to us!

 Any one who denies that Randolph Churchill is NOT a true gentelmen,, well I would be obliged to call that person out!

I would not deny that Lord Randolph is indeed a Gentleman, but no where near as much as his father.

what, dare I ask, is OM and PC?

Had no problem with MC, but PC tripped me up. Makes sense, though, as Labour abolished the Privy Council a couple of years ago. We do, however, still have the New Zealand Order of Merit.

Well you are a Doktor after all, a man of learning.

Having made my point, I will certainly yield to the vote of the members as to my motion.
