    • Steed: How I envy you, working cheek by jowl with Ivan. Mrs. Peel: I can assure you, my cheek is going to be no where near his jowl.

    • Mrs. Peel: Do you think they’re having a purge? Steed: Well if they are, I wish they’d… Mrs. Peel: Do it in their own country? You said that. Steed: It’s unethical. It’s just not cricket. Mrs. Peel: You said that too. Steed: We need a drink. Mrs. Peel: That, you haven’t said.

    • Steed: Mrs. Peel can vouch for me, I haven’t killed anybody all week.

    Trivia (2)

    • Tag: Entering Steed's apartment, Mrs. Peel finds her colleague decked out in Cossack attire, his hat pulled tightly round his ears. After some wordplay about bourgeois decadence, they link arms and depart.

    • The opening teaser for this episode: Mrs. Peel stops to buy a newspaper. When she looks at the front page she notices the headline is, ’Mrs. Peel - we’re needed.’
