    Whatever, Colt… you’re just jealous of my mad Cribbage skillz.

    Captain Hastings: [about Poirot] “Well, he’s always been middle-aged. Have you seen that photograph of him at his christening?”

    Miss Lemon: [chuckling] “I know.”

    Captain Hastings: “He looks as though he’s about to address a board meeting.”

  2. Here’s an interesting tidbit…

Curtain, the final episode of Poirot feature David Suchet as Hercule Poirot  aired on November 13th, 2013. It marked the end of 13 “seasons” going back to  January 8th, 1989.

I’ll save you the math: that’s twenty-four years.

Damn.

Also, that’s a lot of thirteens, and the show started on 1/8/89 aka 1/8/1989 that’s a lot of 8s and 1s and 9s.

(BTW “Here’s an interesting tidbit” should be read as “Here is something I found interesting even if you don’t.”)

  3. Netflux

    As you mäy have noticed, I’ve been on a bit of a Poirot “kick” lately. We own a bunch of the movies on DVD, and then I loaded up my Netflix DVD queue with a bunch of the ones we don’t have.

    Here’s a listing of my Netflix DVD activity since October:

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Cat Among the Pigeons

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Three Act Tragedy

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: The Mysterious Affair at Styles

    • Poirot: Vol. 1

    • Poirot: Vol. 2

    • Poirot: Vol. 3

    • Poirot: Vol. 4

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Super Sleuths

    • Poirot: Vol. 5

    • Poirot: Vol. 6

    • Poirot: Vol. 7

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Hallowe’en Party

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Appointment with Death

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Mrs. McGinty’s Dead

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Five Little Pigs

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: After the Funeral

    • Rosemary’s Baby

    Wait…What the…?

    Oh, right, I loaded a bunch of movies into the queue after Beth recommended them, back around Halloween. Then I ended up reshuffling the queue around.

    Turns out that Poirot: Vol. 8, 10, 11, and 12 are all listed as “Very Long Wait” and (presumably) 9 wasn’t available on the day when they were ready to send out my next DVD.

    So… yeah… “And now for something completely different” as the kids say :-)

  4. Poirot: You have everything that you need, madam?

Ariadne Oliver: Oh yes, I’m perfectly well provided for, I have reams of paper, oceans of ink, and I’m sure Robert has gin.  What more does a girl need?

Poirot: You have brought your own ink?

Ariadne Oliver: Always do. Who would be without ink?

  5. Poirot and Hastings play Monopoly

    • Poirot:
      I will build a hotel on Frederick Street.

    • Hastings:
      You can't build a hotel on a railway station…

    • Poirot:
      Do not be absurd Hastings, there are plenty of hotels at railway stations.

    • Hastings:
      It's not in the rules!

    • Poirot:
      Well then, Hastings, the rules are wrong!
