* Possibly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DP8i5Bg8Mo the single greatest swear in the entire history of swearing]]:
-->'''Malcolm Tucker:''' "You know, I've come across a lot of psychos, but none as fucking ''boring'' as you- I mean, you're a real boring ''fuck''- sorry, sorry, I know that you disapprove of swearing, so I'll sort that out: you are a boring eff-star-star-[[spoiler:''CUNT'']]."
* A rarity: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwGZinTeodc a character who isn't afraid of Malcolm]]. Played by James Gandolfini, no less.
** Judy also gets some points on this front, since -- while she's perhaps not quite as intimidating about is as General Miller is -- she's also much more capable of standing up to Malcolm than most people are.
* Meta-example: Creator/ArmandoIannucci committing espionage in order to get a realistic look at the inside of the U.S State Department.
