Quotations from Yellow Iris (Agatha Christie' Poirot)

Captain Hastings: Is there *anything* in the English cuisine that you like, Poirot?
Hercule Poirot: The English they do not have a cuisine, my friend, they have only the food.
Captain Hastings: Well, that's a bit harsh, ...
Hercule Poirot: Like the meat, overcooked, the vegetables, too soft, the cheese, inedible. And the day the English create their own wines is the day I return home to Belgium.

When Poirot was detained by the Argentina police...
The journalist: Don't worry Monsieur Poirot, I'll call the French embassy.
Hercule Poirot: No, no, no, no! The Belgian embassy!
