Around the World in 80 Days
Movie Quote Quiz

Passepartout: I'm your new valet.
Phileas Fogg: Uh... I must commend the valet service on their impeccable foresight. But they know I only accept French valets.
Passepartout: Yes. Oh! Oui! Oui! I come from a long line of French valets. On my father's side. Very, very French.
Phileas Fogg: But your accent.
Passepartout: My father French. Never speak. My mother Chinese and never shuts up. All the children pick up her accent.

Continuity mistake: When Passepartout and Fogg arrive at The Royal Academy of Science explaining about breaking the speed barrier, Lord Kelvin asks where his authorization is and mocks Fogg while laughing and lowering his right arm. When it cuts, his arm is back up to his stomach. (00:13:00)

Question: Is there any reason why Passe-partout and the Wright Brothers don't appear together? Were the filmmakers afraid people would get confused and think they were watching "Shanghai Noon"?

Answer: Might be. But most unlikely. Many actors who have played in the same movies often "bump" into eachother in other movies as well. The most reasonable explanation that Passepartout doesn't meet up with the Wright Brothers is that his character is not needed in the scene between Fogg and the Wright Brothers.
