View Quote [A man is screaming in Chinese in the jail cell with Fogg, Passepartout and Monique who are also locked up]

[Passepartout asks the man the question in Chinese, The man replies in Chinese]

View Quote [After Inspector Fix's failed first attempt to stop Fogg]
Lord Kelvin: Dang that nincompoop, Fix. What's the point in hiring a corrupt police officer if he can't even abuse the law properly?! Kitchener!

View Quote [referring to General Fang] A female General?! What sort of pathetic man takes orders from a woman? [The camera pans out to show a picture of Queen Victoria]

View Quote And with this draft to develop new applications for copper wire, Dr Ramsey invented this.

[laughs more, then stops nervously] She's behind me, isn't she?
