      • Doctor: I'm a doctor.


        Hancock: Yes, we all know you're a doctor. You've been talking about nothing else since we've been here. I don't understand you. I don't go around telling people what I am all the time.


        Doctor: I think we've all reached an opinion as to what you are.

      • Woman: I'm suffocating! I've got to get out of here!


        Woman's Husband: My wife's got claustrophobia!


        Hancock: Oh yes? That's a handy thing to have in a lift, init? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

      • Hancock: Doctor, what have you got in your little black bag there? Got any sleeping pills?


        Doctor: Yes.


        Hancock: Right, two each all round, let's forget all about it!

      • Air Marshall: Well now, what's happening? What's wrong, trouble with the lift? Anybody pressed the button?
        Hancock: Do you know, we'd never thought of that! "Anybody pressed the button?" Dear oh dear, the military mind! Of course we've pressed the button, what do you think we've been doing? Trying to pull it up by the rope?
