Quotes from

Sir Henry Carmel: Well, she needn't have dropped the platter and insulted my friend. What was it she said to you?
Syrette: I remember very well, sir. It was, if I may take the liberty of repeating it, 'Nuts to the squirrels.'
Sir Henry Carmel: Doesn't make sense!
Adam Belinski: No, it doesn't. It should be 'Squirrels to the nuts.' But I have an open mind, and if someone says to me 'Nuts to the squirrels,' I accept it. You may be inclined to say that to me yourself some day, when you know me better - and I'm not so sure that you will include the 'squirrels.'
Sir Henry Carmel: [shaking his head] That's much too deep for me.


Adam Belinski: I would build you the most beautiful mansion, with the most exquisite and complicated plumbing, I would hand you a hammer, and say "Ladies and Gentlemen, Madame Cluny Belinski is about to put the pipes in their place".


Hilary Ames: Relieve the drain, relieve the strain.
