A series of mysterious deaths of military personnel bring Jim face to face with the indestructible Colonel "Iron Man" Torres.

    • TRIVIA (4)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Gilbert: You did recover.
        Torres: No pity, Colonel. Not for me. I am now a superior man. There is steel in my skull, layers of metal protecting my heart. My hands are made of steel. My sinews are wire. It is a bit difficult to look me in the face without flinching, but all in all, you have made of me a man far superior than I was.

      • Lopez: You will walk upstairs.
        Artie: I'm sorry, my Great Aunt Maude told me never to go off with strangers.
        Lopez: I don't like jokes. You'll move now or I'll shoot you six times.
        Artie: That's introduction enough.

      • Jim: Dead end.
        Torres: A most appropriate comment, Mr. West.
        (the room fills with knockout gas)

      • (Nina is dancing in a showgirl outfit)
        Jim: Well, at least she's still alive.
        Artemus: Alive is an understatement.

      • Showgirl: Have you gentlemen everything you wish?
        (Artemus is about to answer, but Jim cuts him off)
        Jim: Everything's fine, thank you.
        (Showgirl leaves)
        Artemus: Would you mind talking for yourself?

      • Artie: Why do we always end up working on holidays?
        Jim: I'll look it up in the manual.

      • Torres: I... find myself in the position of the knights of old in armor. Rule #1: stay away from water more than head deep. Rule #2: in my case, to avoid a rope around the neck at all costs. The indignity would be far more painful than the hanging.
        Jim: Take my hand, Torres.
        Torres: I would have liked to. At another time...

      • Artie: There should be a law against educating women.
