Little Girl: Sounds like a subdural hematoma to me.

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: Oh, it does, does it? Well, it's not your job to diagnose.

Little Girl: But I thought...

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: You thought, you thought. Just go. Three years of nursery school and you think you know it all. Well, you're still wet behind the ears. It's not a subdural hematoma. It's *epidural*. Ha.

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: You. You're the elevator killer. Merv Griffin.

Merv Griffin: Yeah.

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: Why?

Merv Griffin: I don't know. I've always just loved to kill. I really enjoyed it. But then I got famous, and - it's just too hard for me. And so many witnesses. I mean, *everybody* recognized me. I couldn't even lurk anymore. I'd hear, "Who's that lurking over there? Isn't that Merv Griffin?" So I came to Europe to kill. And it's really worked out very well for me.

Olsen: Doctor, were you interested in science as a child?

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: I don't know if I was interested so much in the science as I was in the slime that goes along with it. Snakes and frogs. When I saw how slimy the human brain was, I knew that's what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

[He winces]

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: Sorry, I forgot. As far as I'm concerned, you're the most complete woman I've ever known. All my life, I wanted women with great bodies, women who were "Tens." Now, for the first time, I'm aroused by a mind.

[the scientists pull up in a car in front of a modern condominium building]

Dr. Necessiter: What's the matter?

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: Oh, you have to forgive me. It's just that, being here in Austria, meeting a scientist with your interests, I half expected your laboratory to be in a castle, not a condo.

Dr. Necessiter: [Dr. Necessiter opens his room with his key and swings the door wide open] You mean like this?

[His place is decorated with rough rock walls and flagstone floors, candles and candelabras, an interior drawbridge, wing chairs, hanging banners, and the like]
