Just thought I'd mention that the line actually reads:
"Fire is the devil, hiding like a coward in the smoke."

Better cadence that way, with the strange twist of "coward" thrown in.

Though I really shouldn't be correcting other people's quotes when I myself
actually forgot the "She's filled with secrets" line from the speech by
the Man From Another Place.  And I knew that line, too!  My brain crashed,
I guess.  Oh well.

In about a week I'll post some more additions and corrections to the quote
list.  Please continue sending me your favorite quotes from new episodes
(and old ones too).
