Quotes

Swiftnick: [Dr. Mandragola is gazing into the 'Eye of Solomon'] Can you see what's happened to Harry?
Dr. Mandragola: I see... a man! A happy man.
Swiftnick: Doesn't sound like Harry. What's he look like?
Dr. Mandragola: The vision is... indistinct.
Dick Turpin: Had he got a beard?
Dr. Mandragola: A beard...
Dick Turpin: Yes, a big, bushy beard, about this long.
Dr. Mandragola: Yes, yes! He wears such a beard.
Dick Turpin: In that case, it must be a false beard, cause Harry doesn't wear one.
