Jonathan Creek (1997–2016)
[after Jonathan stops a criminal holding Maddy hostage by throwing a card at his face]
Madeline Magellan: If you'd missed, he would have killed me!
Jonathan Creek: I did miss. I was aiming for his balls.
Madeline Magellan: Enough with the pedanticism and let us eat.
Jonathan Creek: The word is pedantry.
[to Carla Borrega, having learned that her husband used to be married to a man]
Jonathan Creek: I was just wondering what the technical term for that was - not so much "bigamy" as "bugger-me".
Jonathan Creek: [about Carla's Father] I just remember saying that I thought he was a bit of a prick... ly sort of gentleman.
