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



Bennie Smith:
Not me, Mr. Brown.



Mr. Brown:

[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.

Do you know Mr. Brown?

Leonard Diamond:
He's a hoodlum.

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.

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.
