      • Steed: I always felt I was cut out to be an engine driver. I was on the point of taking it up as a matter of fact.
        Emma Peel: Family objected?
        Steed: oh, no. They were all for it. I came to my senses just in time. There's no security, always on the move.
        Emma Peel: I don't know. It would have kept you on the straight and narrow.

      • Steed: (Deciding Mrs Peel's undercover disguise for the Nursing Home for Retired and Ailing Railwaymen) With your pleasing demeanour, you'll get in there quite easily as a nurse. Have to pull a few strings of course. Yes, I'll get onto the Ministry right away. … It's a charming place, you'll like it.
        ( Cut to Mrs. Peel at the nursing home being spoken to by the Matron.)
        Matron: No music in your room. No male visitors. No nail varnish. No elaborate hair dos. Regulation stockings and in by ten o'clock every night.

      • In this episode Mrs. Peel, the heroine, is tied to the train tracks and faces impending death by an oncoming miniature train. Steed, the hero, races to her rescue. The sequence is accompanied by dramatic piano music and contains no dialogue. This melodramatic action scene is a pastiche of the silent movie era.
