  • Trivia

    • Tag: Outside Risely Dale, Steed and Emma pay the penalty of their contact with electricity. He becomes magnetised to his Bentley, as does Mrs. Peel when she goes to help him. As Steed remarks, 'Don't fight it, Mrs. Peel. We're inseparable!'

  • Quotes

    • Cynthia: We assistants come in four categories: confidential, secret, most secret and top hush.
      Steed: You reached the top of your profession?
      Cynthia: Not quite. My ultimate ambition is to achieve the special category of "Button lip".

    • Steed: I got a ten-pound salmon last week.
      Cynthia: Really? Where?
      Steed: In Bond Street. I was walking by a hotel and it fell out of the window, straight into my arms. There was a contretemps with the chef. He's a volatile fellow, but he had no aim with a salmon. Of course I threw it back. It would not have been sporting to hold on to it.

    • (The contents of a filing cabinet have been burned.)
      Steed: You seem to have pyromanic mice.

    • Emma: What are you? AC or DC?
      Steed: I have never had the occasion to find out.
