thank you and good night.
- Stephen: What's something I've hypnotised?
- Alan: Hugh Laurie.
- Stephen: Oddly enough, "sauros" was ancient Greek slang for "penis". "Sauros" means "lizard", and they would call it your "lizard". Your knob. Just thought you'd like to know that.
- Alan: Why is "thesaurus", then? Is that Latin?
- Stephen: That's a different word. "Thesaurus" means a "treasure house" or "repository". In this case, a treasure house of words.
- Alan: So you might refer to your backside as a "thesaurus".
- Stephen: I'd like to think my bottom is a treasure house, yes, Alan.
- Alan: "My bottom is a treasure house" is a really good catch phrase.
