Quotes

[Uncle Martin wants to evade Mrs. Brown's inquisitive niece]
Tim O'Hara: Uncle Martin, what's the matter with you?
Uncle Martin: Tim, up until thirty minutes ago, I couldn't even disappear. She won't let me out of her sight. I think she's got eyes in the back of her head.
Tim O'Hara: Oh. Well, maybe she's from another planet, too. Ha!
Uncle Martin: No, no, no. She's from Cincinnati.
