Peter Cook: Nigel

Quotes 

  • Selena : Get out of my house, Nigel, and don't come slithering back.

    Nigel : Listen, Selena, I'm the only one who can save you from yourself. You *need* me.

    Selena : Like an Eskimo needs a lawnmower, kiddo.

    Nigel : I'm warning you, Selena. Don't be so shortsighted.

  • Selena : Nigel, how long have we been together?

    Nigel : Ooh. Months, darling.

    Selena : Then why does it seem like years?

    Nigel : Because you're so impatient. You want everything yesterday. It takes a lifetime to discover the secrets of black magic from the ancient grimoires.

  • Nigel : Oh, terrific. The old dangling-in-a-cage routine. Pathetic, Selena.

  • Nigel : I have a secret, Selena.

    Selena : How exciting for you, Nigel. Best write it down before you forget it.

    Nigel : After you left me there in the lurch, I saw something that should worry you greatly if you're serious about over the planet. My secret was blue and red, and it knew how to fly.

    Selena : I have a secret, too, Nigel. I have the power. Now, get that through your head. Selena is through worrying. The shoe is on the other foot and it's their turn to worry, all those who mocked me when my chips were down.

    Nigel : Oh, I bet they're really in for it now, eh?

    Selena : Count on it.

  • Nigel : Well, where is it? Where's the little mystery ball? Just let me have a peek. Maybe I can shed some light.

    Selena : I hate light.

    Nigel : I mean, is it electrical? Is it hot to the touch? Where is it?

    Selena : Safe and sound. Go mix. Leave me to my thoughts.

    Nigel : Go mix? With these people? You must be mad. Who are they? Wrinkly little wretches.

    Selena : These are my foot soldiers, Nigel. My army of the night.

  • Nigel : May I presume that whilst you were staring at the wall and not at your terminal like your other little friends here, you were hard at working solving this little equation?

    Linda Lee : Oh, yes, sir, I was. I mean, I was...

    Nigel : Excellent. The answer, please. Pay attention, class. Ms. Lee is about to enlighten us.

    Linda Lee : 5,271,009,010.

    Lucy Lane : [the class laughs, and the school bell rings]  Come on. Let's get out of here before he makes you stay.

  • Nigel : Have you been going through my papers?

    Linda Lee : Of course not, sir.

    Nigel : Then how do you know the correct answer? How?

    Linda Lee : I guess I just...

    Lucy Lane : It's all this crazy weather we've been having, sir. All the storms. Shock waves, electromagnetism. It makes people smarter than they are for a second. We gotta go, sir.

    Linda Lee : [Lucy pulls her out of the room]  Oh, boy. Thanks. You know, I gotta learn...

    Lucy Lane : How did you know the answer?

    Linda Lee : I don't know. Six-dimensional geometry. I never could do it before.

    Lucy Lane : Yeah. Well, you want some friendly advice? Don't go showing it off, 'cause nobody's gonna like you.

  • Nigel : You girls are rank amateurs playing with fire.

    Selena : Because we own the matches.

  • Nigel : I want to make a very serious proposal.

    Selena : In that outfit?

  • Nigel : What's going on? Hey, what's going on?

    Selena : I've just outgrown you, Nigel. These things happen!

    Nigel : You can't treat me like this, Selena. Without me, you'd still be reading tea leaves at Lake Tahoe.

  • Nigel : Linda, are you with us?

    Linda Lee : Um... Yes, sir, I am.

    Nigel : Oh, are you? Where, might I ask?

    Linda Lee : Well, here, sir, on Earth.
