This is what happens when you leave home. You meet... people.
Well, rules are meant to be broken... or... stabbed with spikey shoes.
Very impressive. I'd have let go by now.
I am going to be abominably ill.
What's the point in hiring a corrupt inspector when he can't even abuse the Law properly?
A female General!? What sort of pathetic man takes orders from a woman? [The camera pans out to show a picture of Queen Victoria]
This is The Royal Academy of Science! We don't need to prove anything
I hold all the power! I run everything!
Unlike you and your colleagues, money does not inspire me.
I believe every man has his price. Even you, oh noble Phileas Fogg. There must be something I could offer that would be worthy of your time.
There is. Your position as head of the Royal Academy.
I could lead Britain and the rest of the world into a new age of progress and discovery.
I, Lord Kelvin, hereby vow to surrender my position as minister of science to Phileas Fogg if he can circumnavigate the globe... in no more than 80 days. But if he cannot, he must never set foot in the academy again, he must tear down that abhorrent eyesore he calls a labatory, and he must swear... never to invent again.
Just as I always suspected, Fogg. You promise so much, yet you deliver... oh, nothing.
I'll take your wager.
What did you say?
I'll take your wager!
[(in the warehouse, seeing the Statue of Liberty in pieces] That's a big man.
It is a lady. A French lady.
[turning to see General Fang and her henchmen] She looks like an evil Chinese warlord to me.
Your journey has caused quite a stir, Mr. Fogg. But I'm afraid it ends here.
Leave them alone, Fang. This has nothing to do with them.
On the contrary, Lau Xing. Lord Kelvin and I have made new arrangements to conquer Lanzhou. Unfortunately for Mr. Fogg, they entail his... permanent detour.
I'm sorry, Phileas.
Don't be, my cheri. I saw the world. I learnt of new cultures. I flew across an ocean. I wore women's clothing. Made a friend. [he takes Monique's hand] Fell in love. Who cares if I lost a wager?
