Borisov: "You've done whatever you've done – you now pick your tiles, and get out of here before June... If if hadn't been for the highway, you wouldn't have discovered anything."

Bakamska: "Mr. Prime Minister, after all, this here used to be a necropolis, not a barn!" retorted Bakamska.

Borisov: "Why aren't you working on it then?" asked the Prime Minister.

Bakamska: "Because it is frozen, it is winter, and it's cold," replied the archaeologist.

Borisov: "Well, then I will bring you air-heaters – to make you and your tiles warm, and, if necessary, Lili Pavlova (i.e. Bulgaria's Regional Development Minister Lilyana Pavlova – editor's note) will keep an umbrella over your heads but you have to be done by the end of June. We are 50 years behind."
