    • Solo: (looking at photos to prepare for the mission) Let's look at the, uh, owner of the yacht. (seeing Gervaise Ravel) Mmm-hmm... very handsome owner.
      Heather: If you like the feline type.
      Solo: Well, they purr so nicely.

    • Heather: She's classified as dangerous.
      Napoleon: A beautiful woman should always be so classified.
      Heather: Me, too, Mr. Solo?
      Napoleon: Oh, top of the list, Ms. McNabb.

    • Marion: Would you like some coffee? Shall I play a record?
      Illya: You probably don't have anything I like. Just forget I'm here.
      Marion: That won't be easy. (Illya sits in a chair)
      Illya: Just... part of the furniture.

    • Marion: It seems whenever we're together you always have a gun in your hand. I'm never quite feel comfortable with you here.
      Illya: You have to learn to ignore. Pretend I'm part of the background. Just another rock or a tree.
      Marion: All right. You're a rock. (she leans against him)

    • Marion: Illya! Why...?
      Illya: Please, I must think. There has to be some way out of this.
      Marion: There isn't, so can't we just talk?!
      Illya: No, just pretend I'm not here. Part of the walls.
      Marion: That's what you are, all right. Pretend you're part of the walls or a lamp or a chair or a tree or a rock. But just for once, just once, couldn't you pretend to be a human being?
      Illya: For a few moments then. Just pretend I'm a human being.

    • While Solo, Kuryakin, Raven, and Horth are spying on a camp from rocks high above, Horth stands up, ready to go, and catches Solo under the chin with his rifle.

    • Marion Raven: Someone once said there can be no mischief where there's music. Do you believe that?
      Marion is trying to diffuse the tense situation in her apartment by referencing a quote from a famous Spanish author, Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616). In the 1615 novel Don Quixote, Part II, the character Sancho says to a duchess: "Senora, where there's music there can't be mischief."
