- Tommy: That's the Professor's timeball, Susie. We can make it fly Back to Methuselah, or forward to the space of Things to Come.
Tommy: Why! Mr. South America. I thought you were in Hamilton. I mean, Mr. Hamilton, I thought you were in, er, South America. Mr. Hamilton: [with Irish accent] Whatta yer doin' with my champagne? Tommy: Ay-o-i-er... I was just going to launch a battleship, only, somebody's stolen it.
Bill Barton: [looking down on Earth] Ooh, look Susie! North and South America... Tommy: It's a small world, I always say. Bill Barton: ...and the Far East. Tommy: And, Mae West.
Tommy: Bring me some food and wine! But don't bother about the food!
Capt. Walter Raleigh: [looking at Tommy's jewellery and accessories] Gold. Silver. Diamonds. Didst have to dig deep for them? Tommy: No. Just lifted them from the suckers. Capt. Walter Raleigh: "The suckers"? A native tribe? Tommy: There's one born every minute. What's the time now? Capt. Walter Raleigh: What would I not give to go to thy country? Tommy: That's a boy, Wally! So you shall. I'll fix you up with a lecture tour. What a time you'll have with the gals! Capt. Walter Raleigh: "The gals"? Another native tribe like "the suckers"?
- This little-known movie seems to be the first feature film to include a time machine. It was released the same year as Fiddlers Three (1944) - another small British comedy about time travel.
