      Cornelius: The L'Aviation Escadrilles.
      Mr. Roarke: Precisely.
      Cornelius: You amaze me Mr. Roarke, they were the greatest heroes of the War. They had such fantastic style and elan.
      Mr. Roarke: Elan.
      Cornelius: Oh they had that too huh, that's great. Will they be part of my fantasy too, Mr. Roarke?
      Mr. Roarke: Perhaps.....I had hoped to offer a toast to your adventure Mr. Weaselfarber.
      Cornelius: Ah Wieselfarber.
      Mr. Roarke: Wieselfarber, ah but the liquor cabinet seems to be locked.
      Cornelius: Ah well a lock has not been invented that can keep this locksmith out!

      Tattoo: Good Morning Boss.
      Mr. Roarke: Good Morning Tattoo.
      Tattoo: Don't you see anything different about me.
      Mr. Roarke: Oh, now that you mention it, yes I have a feeling you are imitating the Frankenstein monster, though I am at a complete loss as to why.
      Tattoo: Well it's to scare off the people who pick on me because of my size.
      Mr. Roarke: Well with all due respect may I suggest that you imitate the Frankenstein monster at some other time. Meet me at the plane to welcome our guests or have you forgotten that.
