That scene always got a positive response from audiences in my neck of the woods -- especially when the priest gulped nervously at the start of his conversation with Clark. Everyone laughed at that. I'm sure it was influenced by this:
“Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
