“The term is ‘lingerie’, and it’s the way to a woman’s heart.”
–You’re not taking this situation seriously.
–I haven’t taken anything seriously since 1918.
“I don’t allow myself to be lustfully compromised during my murder investigations.”
–I’ll never again dismiss the fashion world as frivolous. It all looks harmless enough, but you never know what lies underneath.
–Just one dress can be lethal. Nightcap?
–Perhaps another time, at a less dangerous hour, in a less lethal dress.
“Intelligent women do have their uses, Inspector.”
“I’m concealing a lot of things– it’s what a lady does.”
“Dot, a woman should dress first and foremost for her own pleasure. Having grown up in second-hand flannels, there is nothing quite so divine as the feel of silk underwear, the touch of soft fox, the slither of a satin skirt. If these things happen to appeal to men, that really is a side issue.”
–Do you have a card, in case I need to call the police, because I’m a woman alone, newly arrived in a dangerous town?
–I plan to make this town less dangerous, Miss Fisher.
–Oh good, I do like a man with a plan, Detective-Inspector Jack Robinson.
