Beware the night!  (taglines)

Horace Femm[edit]

  • The fact is, Morgan is an uncivilized brute. Sometimes he drinks heavily. A night like this will set him going and once he's drunk he's rather dangerous.
  • It's only gin, you know. Only gin. I like gin.
  • Have a potato.
  • We make our own electric light here, and we are not very good at it. Pray, don't be alarmed if they go out altogether.
