Nigel Pennington-Smythe: What are you doing?
Illya Kuryakin: Trying to get an explosive cap out of my boot heel, so I can blast the pipe apart so we can get out of here.

Illya Kuryakin: Well, that's progress I guess?

Nigel Pennington-Smythe: You must be an old hand at this.
Napoleon Solo: Actually, I'm new at this... again.
