Basil Exposition: [after Austin punched Basil's mother and attempted to pull her hair out] You have a lot of explaining to do!
Austin Powers: I'm sorry, Basil. I thought she was a man.
Basil Exposition: Dammit, man! You're talking about my Mother!
Austin Powers: Well, you have to admit, she is rather man-ish.
Basil Exposition: [shocked] Austin!
Austin Powers: Well, no offense, but if that is a woman it does look like she was beaten with an ugly stick!
