Timothy West: Ridcully

Quotes 

  • Ridcully : You the type to burn a book, Lipwig?

    Moist Von Lipwig : No.

    Ridcully : Why?

    Moist Von Lipwig : Because you just don't *do* that sort of thing!

    Ridcully : Correct. Books must be treated with respect, we feel that in our bones, because words have power. Bring enough words together they can bend space and time.

  • Ridcully : How many words are here? A million? Two million? What about in the whole building? There must be billions!

    Moist Von Lipwig : Only an academic could state the obvious and pass it off as wisdom.

  • Ridcully : Read my lips: Words do not kill! People kill. Wild animals kill. But words... words have a totally different power. They enter in through our eyes and ears and work their way into our souls.

  • Ridcully : [entering Lord Vetinari's office]  This had better be important. I'm in the middle of an experiment.

    Lord Vetinari : Involving a knife and fork, no doubt.

    Ridcully : [sighing]  I don't expect a layman to understand the pressures of university life.

    Lord Vetinari : Incredible though it may seem, we've found a practical use for one of your magical devices.

    Ridcully : Have you?

    Lord Vetinari : The object in question is, um...

    [Lord Vetinari looks at Drumknott] 

    Drumknott : An omniscope, my lord.

    Lord Vetinari : Enabling us to see things at a distance, I believe.

    Ridcully : The omniscope is a highly complex, very unstable piece of equipment.

    Lord Vetinari : You mean it doesn't work?

    Ridcully : Well...

    [stammering] 

    Ridcully : Relatively speaking, it works.

    Lord Vetinari : Excellent. Kindly have it up and running by dawn tomorrow.

    Ridcully : Now listen, magic is not some kind of workman's tool that you can hire out by the hour.

    Lord Vetinari : Just as well, because I wasn't intending to pay you.

    [Drumknott smirks] 

  • Ridcully : Now, listen, magic is not some workman's tool that you can hire out by the hour.

    Lord Vetinari : Just as well, because I wasn't intending to pay you.
