God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity still in the cloud, the oil still in the earth. How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource!

Sport in the sense of a mass-spectacle, with death to add to the underlying excitement, comes into existence when a population has been drilled and regimented and depressed to such an extent that it needs at least a vicarious participation in difficult feats of strength or skill or heroism in order to sustain its waning life-sense.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Luxmore: Their leading man is one Michaelangelo Abraxas, known to many, I am sure, as the elusive Pimpernel of the Popular Movement Against General Manuel Noriega. Abraxas is a man of proven integrity, skilled at clandestine warfare. His second in command, but, I submit, his equal in skill and resolution, is code-named "Marta," another veteran of the anti-Noriega resistance. For cover purposes, she is employed as a counter receptionist by our own Panamanian head agent, the redoubtable "Bucket."
Elliot: [Later] Do you think, personally, this Abraxas is Presidential material?
Cavendish: Oh... Scotty...
Luxmore: Abraxas is world-class. Courageous. Unsullied. Incorruptible. A man to dream of when you're shaping nations.

You don't pay ME to sell it, W.I. Norton Donovan, I make real sweaters and I've never known one to come out a can.



W. I. Norton Donovan:
How about a bottle?



Lady Aberlin:
Not a bottle either. It takes time to make sweaters. And your Spray Sweater is a fraud!



W. I. Norton Donovan:
How dare you. These cans are selling very well.

No skill of any kind to make a sweater/ No heart/ No, no spray can can make a sweater/ All that's in these cans is just plain air/ All that's in these cans is just plain air/ All that's in these cans/ All that's in these cans/ All that's in these cans is just plain air! So there!

Edward Pierce:
What exactly are you constructing?



Emily Trent:
We thought a water wheel. It will be so delightful, especially when there will be the rusted curve of the water wheel itself. Don't you agree?



Edgar Trent:
We are building the rusted wheel at considerable expense.



Emily Trent:
It is constructed of previously rusted metal, the craftsmen are most ingenious. And of course we must wait for the weeds to grow up around the site before it takes on the proper appearance.



Edward Pierce:
Oh I'm sure it'll be a handsome ruin.



Edgar Trent:
Where is Elizabeth?



Emily Trent:
I have passed many pleasant hours here, watching the workman fit each piece into its precise slot. Such skill!

They screw it together do they?

No, bolt it actually. With long bolts, fitted tightly.

Yes. *Long* bolts, fitted tightly.



Edward Pierce:
I've just returned from America, a country of many prominent erections.

It *is* exciting to see things come together, so long as the quality does not suffer.



Edward Pierce:
Tight-fitting joints, that's the secret.



Emily Trent:
It's *so* rare these days.



Edward Pierce:
[It] depends on the skill of the workman, of course.



Emily Trent:
And he *must* have the proper tools.

You see if the traitor is hiding down there!

No way! If you're so fired up to know what's going on you go down there!



Scourge:
You lead!



Sweep #3:
I don't want anyone thinking that I question you as a leader, but sorry!

This is called a training circle, a master's wheel. This circle will be your world, your whole life. Until I tell you otherwise, there is nothing outside of it.



Alejandro Murrieta:
Capitan Love is...



Don Diego de la Vega:
There is NOTHING outside of it. Captain Love does not exist until I say he exists. As your skill with the sword improves, you will progress to a smaller circle. With each new circle, your world contracts, bringing you that much closer to your adversary, that much closer to retribution.



Alejandro Murrieta:
I like that part.

Chiron:
Chiron, thy years wants wit, thy wit wants edge and manners, to intrude where i am graced, and may for aught thou knowest, affected be.



Chiron:
Demetrius, thou dost overween it all and so in this, to bare me down with braves. 'Tis not the difference of a year or two makes me less gracious or thee more fortunate. I am as able and as fit as thou to serve and deserve my mistress' grace, and that my sword upon thee shall approve. And plead my passions for Lavinia's love.



Aaron:
[to the camera] Clubs, clubs! these lovers will not keep the peace.



Demetrius:
[to Chiron] Why, boy, although our mother, unadvised gave you a dancing rapier by your side are you so desprite grown to threat your friends? Go to! Have your lath glued within your sheath till you know better how to handle it.



Chiron:
Meanwhile, sir, with the little skill i have full well shalt thou perceive how much i dare.



Demetrius:
Ay, boy, grow ye so brave?


[they draw]



Aaron:
[aaron stops them] How now, lords! Here in the emperor's palace dare you draw and maintain such a quarrel openly? Full well I wot the ground of all this grudge. I would not for a million of gold the cause were known to them it most concerns. Nor would your noble mother for much more be so dishonored in the cort of Rome. For shame, put up.



Demetrius:
Not till i have sheathed my rapier in his bosom and withal thrust those reproachful speeches down his throat that he hath breathed in my dishonor here.



Chiron:
For that I am prepared and full resolved. Foul-spoken coward, that thunderest with thy tongue and with thy weapon nothing darest perform.



Aaron:
Away, I say! Now, by the gods that warlike Goths adore, this petty brabble will undo us all. Why, lords, think you not how dangerous it is to step upon a prince's right? What, is Lavinia then become so loose or Bassianus so degenerate that for her love such quarrels may be broached without controlment, justice, or revenge? Young lords, beware. And should the empress know this discord's ground, the music would not please.

Hercule Poirot:
[reading from the murderer's journal] "Our village, Kings Abbott, is I imagine, very much like any other English village. A chilly medieval church stands at the top of a single street of stone-built cottages. At the bottom of the street, a bridge crosses a stream where the snotty-nosed offspring of the poor perfect the most advanced skill they will ever possess. Although to the casual observer, Kings Abbott is a friendly place, everything is not as it seems. Just scratch the surface, and you will find more jealousies and rivalries than ancient Rome. My little book is about the murder of Roger Ackroyd; the events leading up to it, the subsequent numbskull investigation, and the final revelation to you alone, dear reader, of the guilty party."
