Scene 42 - setting: An office block. Jackson peering down through an open set of lift doors.
Jackson - When were these lift shafts last inspected?
Streisand - 12 months ago. They have a contract with us to check all of their lifts and lifting equipment for all of their premises up and down the country every year.
Jackson - And who did the last inspection?
Streisand - (checks notes) ...Willoughby.
Jackson - Willoughby, my muthafucker. Did he check the emergency lighting in case of power failure?
Streisand - (pulls phone from pocket, dials number) Hey, Willoughby?
Goldthwaite - WAAATHUMFLALFUMPTHGGGH!
Streisand - He says he's busy with Simpson from accounts, he'll ring back.
Jackson - Muthafucker!
