    • Kryten: Every man has his weak spot - his "Achilles heel".

      Achilles was a Greek hero whose mother Thetis attempted to make immortal by dipping him in the River Styx. She held him by his heel which was not exposed to the water and thus remained his vulnerable spot (he died when shot in the heel with an arrow) - thus the phrase for a person's vulnerability is their "Achilles heel".
