  • Quotes

    • Morris: (astounded) It's amazing, it looks just like Eagleman's nest in Barney's comic book. Will you look at all this junk!
      Mr. Roarke: (emphatically) Oh I assure you, this is not junk. Every article in the Eagleman arsenal and wardrobe has been painstakingly designed to transform mild mannered Morris Binstock into Eagleman. Fearless feathered foe for the forces of evil. For instance, these are Eagleman's special knockout darts.
      Morris: Hey if these things work they'll be like flying blackjacks.
      Mr. Roarke: The Eagleman semi-bionic Eagle feet complete with super resilient bouncing pads for tall leaps. The Eagleman custom tailored body stocking, it might be a little tight in the drumstick but it will loosen up. One set of Eagleman wings and finally the Eagleman headress mask and Eagle beak.

    • Mr. Roarke: A man who answers to the description of Dr. Gates has been reported on the Island of Mentu nearby.
      Ms. McKenzie: Are you serious? How soon can I get there?
      Mr. Roarke: Oh right away, if you wish, but I must warn you, going to Mentu Island alone would be most unwise. There is a problem on that particular island, you see years ago when a mining company operated there for a time there was trouble, an ugly situation. Since then a small segment of the population has ward on all strangers going there and don't forget Dr. Gates is a fugitive from justice. He himself could be dangerous.
      Ms. McKenzie: Well I really appreciate your concern Mr. Roarke, but I can't turn back now.
