* CanisLatinicus: In "Manure" from Series 3, Paul manages to persuade the company that plunked a skip at the end of Martin's driveway (after Hilda thought it might be the best way to get rid of the manure that was dumped on it due to a miscommunication with the delivery tractor driver) and refused to move it until it had been there for two days that the terms in their contract outlining this were "''de profundis mundi'' and ''exctincto crapto''". Which, he cheerfully admits to Martin, is complete gibberish, but it gets the desired result and the skip is removed.
