David Brent: I don't look upon this like it's the end, I look upon it like it's moving on, you know. It's almost like my work here's done.

You gotta go to Nazareth, please. And that's, very much like... Me. My world does not end within these four walls, Slough's a big place. And when I've finished with Slough, there's Reading, Aldershot, Bracknell, you know I've got to... Didcott, Yately. You know. My... Winersh, Taplow. Because I am my own boss, I can... Burfield. I can wake up one morning and go 'Ooh, I don't feel like working today, can I just stay in bed?' 'Ooh, don't know, better ask the boss.' 'David can I stay in bed all day?' 'Yes you can David.'

Karl Pilkington: No but what came out, what was invented in that year where they went, "Right that's it now."
Ricky Gervais: The 20th century. Think what happened in the 20th century.
Karl Pilkington: Go on.
Ricky Gervais: Well, planes.
Karl Pilkington: Yeah, but is that a good thing, planes and that? Do you need a plane really? Wouldn't it have been better if we all stuck where we should be instead of travelling about?
