Artemus: Well, Henrietta, my fine feathered darling, what little message are you bearing?
James: From the look on Henrietta's face, it's probably a bill from my tailor.
Veda Singh: Are you all right, Mr. West?
James: I always feel a trifle faint when I'm bitten by... a cobra? Shouldn't I be dead?
Mr. Singh: Oh, come come come, Mr. West. Surely you must be aware that your reputation has preceded you.
James: Has it? What is my reputation?
Mr. Singh: Oh, an admirable one. You have a talent--I might almost say a genius--for survival.
James: Oh, you flatter me, Mr. Singh. But survival embraces so many areas. And many so dull.
Mr. Singh: Quite true, quite true. Begging for mercy, hiding, running away. None of which my boys are interested in. Which effectively narrows it down to the one area in which they are interested. The gentle art of killing.
James: Or maybe this innocent little box contains...
Mr. Singh: Oh ripping, Mr. West, ripping. One of those ultra-ultra weapons your chaps are always so keen on developing, uh?
John Mountain-Top: Never mind. Maybe perhaps you win next game.
Artemus: For the last time, John, if I seem a little bit irritated, it's not because I have lost two games of checkers in a row.
John: Three, was it not?
Artemus: All right, three!
Mr. Singh: As our guest, he should be here enjoying the entertainment.
Chandra: That's true, Papa, but perhaps Mr. West is… indisposed.
Mr. Singh: Nonsense. He always struck me as the kind of man who refused to be indisposed.
James: Whatever you do, don't go in there. There's a tiger in there.
Artemus: Awww… (opens door) There's a tiger in there!
Artemus: Ohhh, the noble horse, man's best friend. (Jim kisses Veda) Well, maybe second best.
Mr. Singh: Are you threatening me? Oh dear, I'm much too old for that.
James: Not too old to die.
Mr. Singh: Oh, come now. There's so little of me left to snuff out, why bother?
Col. Stanton Mayo: To a man, they deeply respect and trust a certain James West. How did you ever manage to gain that status with them?
James: Not by swindling them.
