[Cecile tries to seduce Steed]
Cecile Dragna: Why so shy?
John Steed: Retiring nature.
Cecile Dragna: What does that mean?
John Steed: It means I want to live long enough... to retire.
Cecile Dragna: My husband'll kill you.
John Steed: Your husband's in Italy, on business. By the time he comes back I'll be miles away.
Cecile Dragna: There aren't that many miles.
John Steed: We'll see.
Bug Siegel: [about Steed] He's as mad as a cut snake.
John Steed: Now look at it this way: a few days ago, you didn't know I existed.
Bug Siegel: So were's the improvement?
Jailer: [after accepting a bribe] You said ten thousand Francs.
Bug Siegel: Five now, five later. I wanna make sure I get out.
Jailer: We wouldn't think of locking up a lawyer!
Charlie Bonnay: Shall I wait for you?
Nicole Cauvin: No, you go and have some lunch.
Charlie Bonnay: All right, can I bring something for you?
Nicole Cauvin: Oh, you know very well it's my no lunch day today!
Bug Siegel: [on phone] Steed slipped up. Yeah, somebody saw him leaving the studio with Nicole Cauvin. Well, this little singer of mine, here, Venus Smith.
Bug Siegel: Oh, yeah, we'll have to get rid of her. Her or Steed...
[end of Act 2]
Jack Dragna: Take the car, go home and pack.
Cecile Dragna: Everything?
Jack Dragna: Everything. And get back here fast, we're going to need the car.
John Steed: Why'd you let the band go? Little Venus and I could've had a little twisting session.
