“And whatever do we do? Martello demanded, getting up and coming round the table. “Weatherby’s not in here, George. He never entered the Colony. He can leave by the same damn route!”
“Please don’t shout at me,” Smiley said.

And later:

Guillam was standing his height, barring the way, and for an extraordinary moment it seemed possible that, broken shoulder notwithstanding, he proposed physically to restrain Martello from coming any closer to where Smiley sat.
‘Peter,’ Smiley said quietly. ‘I see there’s a telephone behind you. Perhaps you’d be good enough to pass it to me.’

I love Le Carre.
