Precisely is a dramatic sketch by the English playwright Harold Pinter.

Pinter wrote "Precisely" for a theatrical evening arranged by the peace movement 18 December 1983. In the sketch, two men, Stephen and Roger, argue about exact number of a figure, whether 20 million or more. It becomes clear that they are talking about body counts.
