Emma Peel Quotes:
John Steed: Oh, just one thing...
Emma Peel: Good luck?
John Steed: Something like that.
John Steed: After all, according to your file, you're a psychopathic personality with schizophrenic delusions, suffering from recurring amnesia based on traumatic repression leading to outbursts of antisocial and violent behavior. Knight to king seven. Check.

Father: Hello, Mrs. Peel, welcome back to The Ministry. Now we're going to have a talk.
Emma Peel: About the weather, how topical!

Father: How real do you feel, Mrs. Peel?
Emma Peel: I'll repeat the question, bypassing the weather, which, no doubt, being British, we'll return to in a moment. Do I walk like Mrs Peel, talk like Mrs Peel? Am I witty, wise, wonderful to know? Or, do I go around shooting Ministry agents, attempting to rule the world on my days off?
Father: Now you're just playing games!
Emma Peel: How now, brown cow.
