Hercule Poirot: The mullet was excellent.

Major Barnes: Oh, glad you enjoyed it.

Hercule Poirot: Oh, yes. Where did you buy it?

Major Barnes: What do you mean? I had to go out a long way for that!

Hercule Poirot: No no no no, Major. Your interests are closer to the shore... The Italians, I notice, are strengthening their harbor defenses for military use?

Major Barnes: You're very sharp-eyed, Mr. Poirot.

Hercule Poirot: The sharp eyes are important in both our professions, Major.
