I move that we now think of this clip when Doge is mentioned.

King Roderick: The Duke. What did the Duke do? 
Hubert Hawkins: Eh… the Duke do?
King Roderick: Yes. And what about the Doge? 
Hubert Hawkins: Oh, the Doge! 
King Roderick: Eh. Well what did the Doge do? 
Hubert Hawkins: The Doge do? 
King Roderick: Yes, the Doge do. 
Hubert Hawkins: Well, uh, the Doge did what the Doge does. Eh, uh, when the Doge does his duty to the Duke, that is. 
King Roderick: What? What’s that? 
Hubert Hawkins: Oh, it’s very simple, sire. When the Doge did his duty and the Duke didn’t, that’s when the Duchess did the dirt to the Duke with the Doge. 
King Roderick: Who did what to what? 
Hubert Hawkins: Oh, they all did, sire. There they were in the dark; the Duke with his dagger, the Doge with his dart, Duchess with her dirk. 
King Roderick: Duchess with her dirk? 
Hubert Hawkins: Yes! The Duchess dove at the Duke just when the Duke dove at the Doge. Now the Duke ducked, the Doge dodged, and the Duchess didn’t. So the Duke got the Duchess, the Duchess got the Doge, and the Doge got the Duke! 
King Roderick: Curious. I… I… hm? What? What’s that? All I heard was that the Duchess had a siege of rheumatism. She’s 83, you know.
