DOC : ...and so by the strict application of phrenological principles, we can ascertain the subject's entire character. For instance, this man is aggressive, argumentative and downright irritating.


2nd DOC : How do you know?


DOC : You see this bump? That's where I hit him.

MR BROWN OF SIDMOUTH : Thank you, doctor. I'll have a word with my wife.

DOC : Dr Holmgren, I don't think you can use phrenology to accuse Mr Lechmere of murder.


DR HOLMGREN : How dare you! I am not using phrenology - it's a pseudo-science.


DOC : Then why do you think Mr Lechmere is the killer?


DR HOLMGREN : Isn't it obvious? Look at his defiant expression. Note those beady eyes. What an ugly creep. Ah yes.

Non JtR:

DR STOW: "And this, Macdonald, is how far under water your head is going to be."

MACDONALD: "But I'm okay! Anderby Creek didn't get flooded after all!"

DR HOLMGREN: "You misunderstand us. My colleague has read that last caption and is simply explaining where your bathwater will come up to."

"Yes my nose is a funny shape, but you referring to it as the square on the hypotenuse doesn't help my self-esteem!"

GREAT GRANDPAPPY BROWN : Ooh I know this one. Eyes, nose, mouth and chin, past the milkmaids to Uncle Jim...

THREE OBSERVERS : Ah, that takes us back. Uncle Jim sells lemonade, round the corner chocolate's made.

Ripper:

DR FREUD : No, the dimensions are quite normal, Dr Holmgren. Your head is no bigger than average.

DR HOLMGREN : Then why can't I get my head round the general lack of enthusiasm for the Lechmere theory?

DR FREUD : But that's metaphorical, not physical.

DR HOLMGREN : Your first language is not English, is it?
