"It’s such a cliche." "Right, and you abhor cliches, don’t you? And you teach us to avoid them. Nothing worse, nothing more likely to ‘put the examiners off’. But in this subject there are no examiners. And I’ll tell you something, cliches can be quite good fun. That’s how they came to be cliches. So give yourself a break, be like everybody else for a change. On this one you don’t have to be different."
