  • Quotes

    • Tony: Your rust is better than some people's best!

    • Tony: You see Frank was an escape artist as well as being a magician. You see his wrists, you see how clenched they are. Tension. Muscle expansion. That's an old method used by escape artists. I think he could get out of those bonds in about oh, an instant, huh?

    • Hayden: Very impressive. And what do you call yourself, Mr. Blake? Well, I wasn't trying to be facetious. I always thought magicians call themselves something like, "The Great So and So" or "So and So the Great."

    • Tony Blake: (when Dominick asks how long it would take to learn how to sail cards) Six hours. Every day for five years.
