Kiln People by David Brin, and watching the Black Adder series on DVD. My favorite randomly picked dialogue from this series, culled from Blackadder's Christmas Carol:
Prince George: What can I possibly do with a girl that I can't do with you, eh?Miss V is on the phone with a friend right now, imitating her now-deceased guinea pig Ruby. This involves making little supersonic squeaks of "Wheeet wheeeet wheeet." She is a silly girl, but fun.
Blackadder: I cannot conceive, Sir.
