    • Tabitha: (to Mma Ramotswe) Tell me, if someone is very frightened and they live in fear of their life all day and all night, could you find out why?

    • Mma Ramotswe: Not a big disguise. I just don't want to be identified. BK: Well, can't do anything about your distinctive figure. Mma Ramotswe: There is nothing distinctive about my figure.

    • JLB Matekoni: You shouldn't have wasted your money on the aftershave. I'm quite happy smelling of Sunlight soap. Fanwell: But Boss, women prefer smart-smelling men. Charlie: And that is the path to heavenly pleasure!

    • Charlie: In America, a scientist proved that a man thinks about sex every seven seconds. JLB Matekoni: That can't be true. How did he measure that? Did he attach radio wires to people's heads? Charlie: (giggles) Maybe he attached them to... (looks down at his crotch) Fanwell: Somewhere else. (laughs)

    • JLB Matekoni: The people who run the ivory trade are more dangerous than any mamba. If threatened, they'll strike to kill. A woman in their world is like a fragile ship on a stormy sea, or an antelope in a desert full of lions. Mma Ramotswe: It's been a very long time since someone compared me to an antelope.
