      • Captain Peacock: I've got an idea.
        Mrs Slocombe: Treat it gently. It's in a strange place.

      • Mrs Slocombe: They got Miss Brahms at their mercy. They could be doing anything to her. Oh, I wish I'd gone in her place.
        Mr Humphries: I was just thinking that myself.

      • Robber: What are you doing here after closing time?
        Miss Brahms: I don't have to give you anything other than my name and number. My name is Miss Brahms and I'm assistant 134.

      • Robber: There's a rumour in the underworld you're very keen on the girls.
        Mr Humphries: So long as it's only a rumour.

      • Mrs Slocombe: That's what ruffians do when they capture young girls. They force their attentions on them. Oh, if only I'd gone in her place. I would have put up a real fight ... for quite a while.

      • Italian Tony: Hello Mama, hello Papa. What we got here? He's a wopper.


        Mr Humphries sings his version of the opening lines of 'Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh', the 1963 novelty song by Alan Sherman and Lou Bush.

      • Mrs Slocombe: Come down and see me sometime.


        Robber: Don't you mean 'Come up and see you'?


        Mrs Slocombe: No, I live in the basement.


        An allusion to Mae West's famous line. Mollie Sugden gives a pretty good Mae West impression.
