Captain Kazan[edit]

  • He knows that a horse has four legs. He knows that a murderer has two arms. But still, the Devil must be afraid of one honest Cossack.

Professor Alexander Saxton[edit]

  • The following report to the Royal Geological Society by the undersigned, Alexander Saxton, is a true and faithful account of events that befell the Society's expedition in Manchuria. As the leader of the expedition, I must accept responsibility for its ending in disaster, but I leave to the judgement of the honorable members of the Society the decision as to where the blame for the catastrophe lies.


[Wells bribes a clerk to let him on the train]
Dr. Wells: [to Saxton] It's called "squeeze" in China. The Americans call it "know-how".
Professor Alexander Saxton: And in Britain, we call it bribery and corruption.

Dr. Wells: What are you going to astound the scientific world with this time?
Professor Alexander Saxton: You'll read about it in the Society's annual report. A remarkable fossil.
Dr. Wells: Fossil? But you've got something live in there, I heard it.
Professor Alexander Saxton: You're mistaken!
Dr. Wells: You won't need to feed it then.
Professor Alexander Saxton: The occupant hasn't eaten in two million years.
Dr. Wells: That's one way to economize on food bills.

Countess Irina: Oh, yes, England. Queen Victoria, crumpets, Shakespeare.
Professor Alexander Saxton: I admire Poland, madam. I believe there is a bond between our two countries.
Countess Irina: My husband, the Count Petrovski, says that in the fifteenth century your King Henry betrayed us to the Russians. Hmm?
Professor Alexander Saxton: I hope that you and your husband, madam, will accept my profoundest apologies.

Dr. Wells: Miss Jones, I shall need your assistance.
Miss Jones: [eying Wells' dinner companion, a beautiful woman] Yes, well at your age I'm not surprised.
Dr. Wells: With an autopsy!
Miss Jones: Oh, well that's different.

Inspector Mirov: The two of you together. That's fine. But what if one of you is the monster?
Dr. Wells: Monster? We're British, you know!

Captain Kazan: Now, anything, anything that moves near that door, kill it!
Dr. Wells: But what if the monk is innocent?
Captain Kazan: Ahhh, we got lots of innocent monks!
