In a few moments the proof of my mastery will be complete.

Inspector Cooper: M.O.R. Many words begin with M.O.R. Morgue, morning...
Sherlock Holmes: Or Moriarty.
Inspector Cooper: You told us that Moriarty has an alibi.
Sherlock Holmes: My dear Inspector, Blackburn had a secret. Moriarty wanted it and when he'd gotten it, he had him murdered.
Inspector Cooper: Do you know the secret, Holmes?
Sherlock Holmes: Naturally, I read the Times.


Paul Allen: [as the scantily clad Maria walks by their table going to her dressing room] Ah, Maria! The unattainable Eve with her apples and snakes.
Maria: [Politely] It's a pleasure to see you again, Mr. Allen.
Paul Allen: You have a new admirer, my dear, Mr. Edward Hyde.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: [Obviously attracted to her] Enchanted! My sincere compliments.
