Pig: I think we have to start tying down our garbage lids at night.
Rat: How come?
Pig: Because we've got some animal going through our trash again.
Rat: What is it this time? Dogs? Cats? Raccoons?
{Final panel shows the alley where Pig and Rat keep their garbage can, which has its lid off and trash strewn about}
Cardinal Ximinez (as played by Michael Palin): No one ever expects THE SPANISH INQUISITION!

The author writes:

Besides the obvious tie-in from the original dialogue, I like the thought of the Spanish Inquisitors rummaging through another's trash, and maliciously gloating about doing so.

Oh, and chorizo is a Spanish pork sausage. Get it? ;D
