First Men in the Moon

The Gatiss version. Our intrepid heros, Bedford and Prof. Cavor, are about to land on the moon. Suddenly, a klaxon sounds…

Bedford: What’s that noise?

Cavor: It’s an alarm. Can you read the number?

Bedford: What number?

Cavor: The number of the alarm.

Bedford: It’s … 1202.

Cavor: Oh, don’t worry about that.

Compare with this. Gatiss is *such* a geek (as am I, for getting the joke).
