    • Paladin: Do I remind you of someone? Fogg: Good Heavens, no. You were recommended to me by the British Consulate as being, on the whole, a trifle more trustworthy than the majority of your fellow countrymen.

    • (Paladin and Fogg exchange cards) Paladin: "Phileas Fogg, Esquire, Reform Club, Pall Mall, London, West One." Fogg: "Paladin." It shows you have a decent respect for the classics. I shan't inquire into your true name. Paladin: I beg your pardon? Fogg: I understand that nearly everyone in this part of your country harbors a secret guilt, which, if their true name were found out, might expose them to the most severe reprisals. Paladin: Well, you are...most considerate. Fogg: Yes. Don't try to take advantage of it. In the meantime, your past is no concern of mine. Good day, sir. (Walks away) Paladin: Well, would you mind telling me what that was all about? Passepartout: Ah, he made a bet with some other Englishman that he could go around the world in eighty days. Paladin: Well, I suppose they figured that, if it could be accomplished, an Englishman should be the first to do it. Passepartout: Hmmph. You will find M'Sieur Fogg to be a very excellent master. Firm, but fair. Indeed, the only difficulty is...uh.... Paladin: Is what? Passepartout: He is, of course, quite mad.

    • Paladin: Fogg, nothing was said to me about a woman accompanying us on this expedition. You don't seem to realize what kind of ordeal we're about to undertake. Fogg: Is it her capacity for the ordeal you underestimate? Or your own?

    • Fogg: Passepartout, heat the water, please. Paladin: What now? Fogg: It's 4:00. Time for tea. Passepartout: Ah, M'Sieur Fogg, there is no tea left whatever. Fogg: Good Heavens. Passepartout: I forgot to buy some in San Francisco. I was so unnerved by that abominable Yankee who followed us. Fogg: There's some chaps over there. Pop over like a good fellow and ask them if they can spare us a pinch of tea, will you? Explain the circumstances. Paladin: Tea? The best you can possibly get from them is what they call coffee; it's tan bark. That's if they're prepared to be civil to you at all. Fogg: Civil, to a fellow traveller in distress? I shall go myself. (Marches off) Aouda: Can't you stop him? Paladin: I'm not sure I want to.

    • Fogg: As I pointed out previously, have no intention of meeting on the field of honor with someone who can neither lay claim to honor or breeding. Proctor: And I'm calling you a yella, dirt-lickin', toad-eatin' limey skunk. Fogg: Well, it seems to me our respective countries' eating habits are neither here nor there.
