  • Quotes

    • (Mrs. Peel chooses a tie.)
      Mrs. Peel: What's this one?
      Judy: The old Anonians.
      Mrs. Peel: Old Anonians? What are they?
      Judy: The old boys tie for those who've never been to school. The old Etonians and Harrovians, they all have their ties. This is the neckwear for the selfmade man. Anon, the school of hard knocks.

    • Steed: High in carat, low in protein.
      Mrs. Peel: He likes rich food.

    • Glover: It's the power that excites me Mr. Steed. I want to be ill mannered and rude and uncouth. I want to order people about, especially women. I look forward to being excessively rude to a considerable number of handsome women.
