Adam Belinski Quotes:

    Syrette: I remember very well, sir. It was, if I may take the liberty of repeating it, 'Nuts to the squirrels.'

    Sir Henry Carmel: Doesn't make sense!

    Adam Belinski: No, it doesn't. It should be 'Squirrels to the nuts.' But I have an open mind, and if someone says to me 'Nuts to the squirrels,' I accept it.
