Ducky quotes "That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet"; to which Palmer replies "That is Shakespeare, right?". Ducky then says "No, no, no, it's W.C.Fields again. He had a million of them". Palmer is right, it's from Romeo and Juliet. Ducky grins, so it might be that he is winding Palmer up by giving him deliberately false information. See more »
