Quotes:
From Death Defying Acts (2007)
Benji McGarvie: Name's Benji, Mr. Houdini.
Harry Houdini: "Benji, Mr. Houdini"? Well, I'd drop the second part. It's already spoken for. Just plain Benji sounds good to me.
Benji McGarvie: "Just plain Benji" isn't much of a name either.
Harry Houdini: Well, we have a comedienne here, Mr. Sugarman. Maybe she can do the warm-up.
