->''"Tony has all the exposition, which is always the hardest part of doing any script. It's not the action, it's the context of what is going to happen. Sometimes those are the hardest scenes to act because there's less story to them. It's like in a theatre piece: actors really hate having to deliver exposition. It's called 'heavy lifting', and that's his job. Spike's a badass, because ''he'' said so. Tony does that great."''

->'''Basil Exposition:''' Hello, Austin. This is Basil Exposition, Chief of British Intelligence. You're Main/AustinPowers, International Man of Mystery, and you're with Agent Mrs. Kensington. The year is 1967, and you're talking on a picture phone.\\

'''Basil:''' I just wanted to be extremely clear so that everyone knows what's going on at any given time.

'''Sam:''' Yeah.\\
'''Leo:''' How's a person do that?\\
'''Sam:''' Oh, my guess is, he'll take the Trans-Canada Highway to New Brunswick, then maybe catch the 1 and take the scenic route along the coast of Maine. 95 through New Hampshire to the Mass Pike, and then cut over to the Merritt Parkway round Milford.\\
'''Tody:''' ''([[{{beat}} pregnant pause]])'' Something really kinda ''freakish'' about you, you know that?\\
'''Sam:''' Yeah.
