I dunno why but this little exchange had me laughing out loud. Must have been the way the speakers delivered it. Brilliant!
That's brilliant! "Hang the cliff!" This is Mike Gambit. Mike Gambit laughs in the face of your pathetic little cliff. Ha ha!
That's just great. Saying something three times is always funny, so it works great. Might even be better than the original line where Gambit just says they'll "Certainly try" to follow the helicopter if goes over the cliff (I do love the way they argue in that scene. "But this is a field!" "I Know it's a field!"
I was gonna add that one too! ''I need my beauty sleep!'' ''There are a lot of things you need... but that's not one of them.''
More tipping out of bed then, but this time it's Purdey's turn! I usually remember episodes by either Purdey's outfits or the dialogues, but I just can't remember which one it's from. I just love this line: ''Purdey... I'm not wearing any pyjamas''. (and I bet she didn't mind either)
@ Khell - wow, that translation really is a good one! Those English lines are usually so tough to translate, as they very often include some joke with words, or in the case of TNA: are very subtile. But this is really a nice one!
Purdey has a teddy bear in her bed, but Gambit's has something much more interesting--Gambit! That scene's from The Last of the Cybernauts
, btw, and is probably one of the reasons I love it so much. I love the way Gambit starts to fall asleep again as Purdey talks to him, closing his eyes and bunching up his pillow. Him falling out of bed is pretty good, too. And the whole exchange about his bad horse bets based on Purdey-tips.

Well, she didn't seem to get a proper glimpse of him in "Three Handed Game" when he was modelling for that artist and she entered the scene. *lol* He seemed a little
there, didn't he?
He was even worse when Steed came in.
He sort of winces, as though he's thinking "Great, great. Is my mother out there, too? You want to invite her in and make my humiliation complete?" Steed, of course, doesn't seem to notice Gambit's compromising position at all, while Purdey keeps looking at him every time his towel slips. Naughty Purdey!
Some of my favourite Purdey/Gambit bits are in Forward Base
, when they a) follow the swan and b) have a little fun freaking out that Russian agent: cutting his phone line, hanging around with guns, and then disappearing by sitting in the car reading the paper. There's something about Purdey and Gambit reading the paper together that makes me think "Oh, look, Sunday morning at the Gambit home. How serene."
You guys have hit a lot of the good ones. But may I throw in the double-barreled slingshot from Dirtier
while I'm at it? "Bra-vo!" indeed (and Gambit gets a souvenir).
