Stimson: Raven down, six more corpses to go.
James: Stimson, you’re becoming less and less attractive to me.
Artemus: Sorry I’m late. Mustache trouble.
Martin Grevely: And now let me introduce you to the survivors of the tontine, gentlemen.
Artemus: He’d better hurry, there won’t be any of them left.
James: The point I'm trying to make is this: Dexter and Stimson were murdered. That could happen to everyone else here in this room.
Martin Grevely: Ridiculous!
James: You're right, sir. I should have said everyone here... minus one.
Archduke Maurice: Baring, won’t you be seated?
Edward Baring: No no no no, my dear Archduke. Nobility before talent.
Archduke Maurice: (taking a glass of possibly poisoned wine) You were wise to be cautious, Baring!
Edward Baring: Maurice, what is it, what is it?!?
Archduke Maurice: The wine… it has gone flat. Pity, I shall have to search for another bottle. Bon voyage.
Artemus: Even the police investigation failed to disclose the fact that Martin Dexter had a twin brother.
Archduke Maurice: To kill your own brother. You know, if I had thought of that, I could still be on the throne.
Artemus: What happened to Dexter?
James: He’s… stuck in the rumpus room.
