Emma Peel Quotes:

  • John Steed: Oh, just one thing...

    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.

    Emma Peel: Is that really what you think of me?

    John Steed: Well... just my type, Mrs. Peel.

    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!
