Joe McClure:
Mr. Brown is a very reasonable man. You don't know him.



Leonard Diamond:
Oh, is he? Well I'm not. I intend to make life very difficult for your Mr. Brown.



Joe McClure:
You shouldn't talk like that, Lieutenant. You're overstepping your authority.



Mr. Brown:
Joe, the man has reason to hate me. His salary is $96.50 a week. The busboys in my hotel make better money than that. Don't you see, Joe? He's a righteous man.

Mr. Brown:
Diamond, the only trouble with you is, you'd like to be me. You'd like to have my organization, my influence, my fix. You can't, it's impossible. You think it's money. It's not. It's personality. You haven't got it. You're a cop. Slow. Steady. Intelligent. With a bad temper and a gun under your arm. With a big yen for a girl you can't have. First is first and second is nobody.

Leonard Diamond:
Do you know Mr. Brown?



Nils Dreyer:
I had lunch with him last week. He's a very fine gentleman.



Leonard Diamond:
He's a hoodlum.



Nils Dreyer:
Because I have lunch with him, that is not a crime. I'll have lunch with anybody, I'm democratic. I'll even have lunch with you.

Mr. Brown:
Now, Benny, who runs the world? Do you have any idea?



Bennie Smith:
Not me, Mr. Brown.



Mr. Brown:
That's right, not you, but a funny thing, they're not so much different from you, but they've got something. They've got it, and they use it. I've got it;


[pointing to McClure]



Mr. Brown:
he hasn't. What is it, Benny? What makes the difference...? Hate! Hate is the word, Benny! Hate the man that tries to beat you. Kill 'em, Benny! Kill 'em! Hate him till you see red, and you'll come out winning the big money, and the girls will come tumblin' after. You'll have to shut off the phone and lock the door to get a night's rest.

Leonard Diamond:
She's under arrest, Mr. Brown.



Mr. Brown:
What's the charge?



Leonard Diamond:
Homicide.



Mr. Brown:
That's ridiculous, she wouldn't kill a fly.



Leonard Diamond:
She tried to kill herself



Mr. Brown:
Is that a crime?



Leonard Diamond:
It happens to be against two laws: God's and Man's. I'm booking her under the second.
