Paddington: Mrs Brown says that in London everyone is different, and that means anyone can fit in. I think she must be right - because although I don't look like anyone else, I really do feel at home. I'll never be like other people, but that's all right, because I'm a bear. A bear called Paddington.
When the family turn off the museum electrical system and then run away, their shoes are dry and do not leave wet footprints on the floor. Only when Millicent checks the electrics do the footprints appear.
The gentleman in the restaurant who waves as Paddington goes past in a black cab is the Paddington creator Michael Bond.
