    • QUOTES (5)

      • Chorley: Here, you're not going out there?
        Knight: Yes, Mister Chorley. Want to come? Report some action first hand?
        Chorley: Well, I don't think I'd better get in the way. I, er, I think I'd better stay here, don't you?
        Knight: Yes. Yes, I think you better had.

      • Victroria: Oh Jamie, don't you recognize him? It's Professor Travers.
        Jamie: So it is! Professor Travers! Here, hasn't he got old?

      • Chorley: Any theories?
        Anne: On what?
        Chorley: On what the Doctor and these two kids were doing in the tunnel.
        Anne: Mushrooming?
        Chorley: Ha ha. No, seriously.
        Anne: Ask a silly question.

      • Chorley: Why won't anybody answer any questions?
        Anne: Perhaps they're afraid you'll interpret them in your own inimitable style.
        Chorley: And what does that mean, pray?
        Anne: It means you have a reputation for distorting the truth. You take reality and you make it into a comic strip. In short, Mr. Chorley, you are a sensationaliser.
        Chorley: You smug little redbrick university...
        Anne: Don't say it, Mr. Chorley. I have a very quick temper and very long claws.

      • Weams: Tibet? Tibet? You're joking.
        Blake: That's where old Travers says they come from. He reckons they're Abominable Snowmen.
        Weams: Well, he's off his chump, ain't he? How'd they get here in the first place?
        Blake: Come through the post, don't they?

      • Blake: A right old Fred Karno's Army, innit?
        Referencing the turn of the century British dance hall impresario, who developed several silent comedy routines to aspiring movie comedians Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel. "Fred Karno's Army" became a slang term for any chaotic organization, and was later incorporated into a British trench song during World War I.
