NPR's Bob Mondello reviewed The Queen on Saturday's ATC. His synopsis included the following brilliant exchange betwen Elizabeth II and the newly elected Prime Minister Blair.
HM QE II: Have we shown you how to start a nuclear war, yet?
Tony Blair: Ah, no.
HM QE II: Oh, first thing we do appearantly...
Tony Blair: You obviously know my job better than I do.
HM QE II: Yes. Well, you are my tenth Prime Minister, Mr. Blair. My first, of course, was Winston Churchill.
Mondello: How's that for putting a man in his place?
