–The stuff that dreams are made of.
–I haven’t lived a good life. I’ve been bad, worse than you could know.
–You know, that’s good, becuase if you actually were as innocent as you pretend to be, we’d never get anywhere.

A Welby-Forsby .45 automatic, 8-shot. They don’t make ’em anymore.
And you can tell the fat man I said so
Business should be transacted in a businesslike manner.
By Gad, sir, you are a character. There’s never any telling what you’ll say or do next, except that it’s bound to be something astonishing!

I hope you’re not letting yourself be influenced by the guns these pocket-edition desperados are waving around, because I’ve practiced taking guns from these boys before so we’ll have no trouble here.

The best goodbyes are short. Adieu.
The lie was not in what I said, but in the way I said it.
The ornament is a statuette, a black figure of a bird.

And the only chance I’ve got of catching them and tying them up and bringing them in is by staying as far away as possible from you and the police because you’d only gum up the works! You getting this alright,son, or am I going to fast for you?
Well, shall we be getting down to the hall?
Well, sir, here’s to plain speaking and clear understanding.

When you’re slapped, you’ll take it and like it.
Yes, angel, I’m gonna send you over.
