Episode 1

Houdini’s First Words: You are beautiful, Florrie.

———-

Doyle’s First Words: Good morning

———-

Houdini is staying in the Royal Suite at the Metropole Hotel.

———-

Doyle: Every religion for centuries has told us that death isn’t the end and now, thanks to the many staggering advances in science, we may be able to actually prove it. Nothing is as it was, just 10 years ago. Maybe not even death.

———-

Houdini [to Doyle]: Why can’t you accept that this is all there is? Who died that you can’t stop chasing the dead instead of enjoying the living?

———-

Doyle [to Houdini]: I was wrong about you. It’s not that you think too much of yourself. It’s that you think too little. You’re afraid that if there’s something more, you won’t be worthy of it. Why?

———-

Doyle: Picture tomorrow’s headline: “Houdini Can’t Escape Watery Grave.”

Houdini: That is rich, that all the headlines will be about me, not you.

———-

Sister Grace: It destroyed me when they took my baby away. But I had committed a mortal sin. I tried to put it behind me. I changed my name, and came here to start a new life. But when my daughter showed up… with a child of her own… I wanted to rush to her, to hold her. But I was a nun, I could never admit to being a ‘fallen woman’. I asked God why He’d sent her to me. But when they started to torture her, I understood.

———-

Episode 2

Peter: You murdered me!

———-
Doyle: Look I know it’s not fair but there are things you can do that he can’t.

Mary: Like what?

Doyle: Wear dresses, braid your hair.
———-

Houdini [emotion]: I love my father very much.

———-

Doyle: Maybe she was trying to shut you up.

Houdini: That’s a pretty big lie.

Doyle: Shutting you up is a pretty big task.

———-

Doyle: Sometimes I forget that anyone could miss her as much……as much as I do.

———-

Doyle [grabbing the gun]: Misses Belworh, we were not expecting you!

———-

Houdini [regarding his paper trick]: Not a trick so much as an illusion.

———-

Episode 3

 

Elias Downey: He will punish you for your lack of faith.

———-

Houdini: People who go to faith-healers are already sick!

———-

Doyle [praying]: I know I’m not in a position to ask for favours. Specially since I turned my back on the church. Nothing to do with You. Bloody fools in the Vatican. I hope you won’t hold it against me. Or that I killed Holmes. You probably prefer Dickens. I’m rather partial to him myself.

———-

Doyle: The cyanide was lethal for Mr Batch, but, the gas it produced wasn’t concentrated enough to cause me any serious harm.

———-

Stratton: His wife warned you he might make a scene at the show, so Jane offered him a refreshment. One laced with cyanide.

———-

Doyle: I could only make out a few words, but one of them is definitely apple. The seeds of which are the main ingredient in cyanide. She could have obtained a recipe from an apothecary.

Stratton: This is definitely a recipe, for apple fritters.

———-

Cecilia Weiss: You can escape everything! Even death!

———-

Mary: Father tried to fry some lamb chops, caught the curtains on fire.

———-

Stratton: Shall I fetch some smelling salts?

Houdini [after slapping Doyle]:Nah, I prefer this method.

———-

Doctor: She slipped back into unconsciousness.

Episode 4

———-

Houdini: Great kids. Whose are they?

———-

Houdini: You know it’s okay to not be fine, right?

———-

Doyle: They called him Spring Heel’d Jack. One of London’s great unsolved mysteries.

———-

Mary: My father was given that when he was the surgeon aboard the SS Mayumba.

———-

Houdini: And every beat reminds me that I’m never more alive than when I’m scared half to death.

———-

Lyman Biggs: Be still my fragile heart, if it ain’t Europe’s eclipsing sensation…

———-

Pennington: I’m merely a friend of her husband.

Episode 5

———-

Stratton: I make it a rule to never discuss my personal life with anyone hiding from their mother.

———-

Korzha: “If my record were closed tonight I could still survey it with equanimity.”

———-

Doyle: Sherlock Holmes wasn’t entertainment for you. Those stories where your textbooks..

———-

Mary: You can still read to your daughter. I’m only 11.

———-

Houdini: How can she be married? She had dinner with me.

———-

Houdini: I’m not going to stand in your way. Just… don’t forget about me.
