Why do you always complicate things that are really quite simple?

[singing] It's grand to be an Englishman in 1910 / King Edward's on the throne; it's the age of men.

[singing] It's 6:03 and the heirs to my dominion are scrubbed and tubbed, and adequately fed. And so I'll pat them on the head, and send them off to bed. Ah, lordly is the life I lead.

[singing] A man has dreams of walking with giants/ To carve his niche in the edifice of time/ Before the mortar of his zeal/ Has a chance to congeal/ The cup is dashed from his lips/ The flame is snuffed a-borning/ He's brought to wrack and ruin in his prime.

[last lines] Goodbye, Mary Poppins, don't stay away too long.

Admiral Boom: [observing the long queue of want-to-be nannies] Ghastly looking crew, I must say!

Mr. Dawes: While stand the banks of England, England stands - whoa, whoa...! [Mr. Dawes stumbles over his own cane] When fall the banks of England... ENGLAND FALLS! [Mr. Dawes falls backward and the rest of the Board of Directors have to catch him]
