Mr Tumnus: [as Aslan is about to swat a fly] Mr. Secretary, Narnia abstains, courteously.

[Aslan raises a huge paw at Tumnus, then draws back]

Aslan: Mr. Tumnus, [pause, then roars] WHAT IN THE NAME OF TASH GOES ON IN NARNIA?

Mr. Tumnus: I’m sorry, my lord, but the simple fact is that our legislature has never sent us explicit instructions on anything!

Aslan: NEVER? [slams paw onto his desk] That’s impossible!

Mr Tumnus: My lord, have you ever been to Caer Paravel?

[Aslan shakes his head “No”]

Mr. Tumnus: There are four thrones there, to seat the two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve who are to rule all of Narnia. But the four thrones have been empty for a very long time. With the result that nothing ever gets done. [turns to the Congress as he returns to his seat] I beg the Congress’s pardon.

Aslan: [grimly] My sympathies, Mr. Tumnus.
