Kasper Gutman:
You're a close-mouthed man?



Sam Spade:
Nah, I like to talk.



Kasper Gutman:
Better and better. I distrust a close-mouthed man. He generally picks the wrong time to talk and says the wrong things. Talking's something you can't do judiciously, unless you keep in practice.


[sits back]



Kasper Gutman:
Now, sir. We'll talk, if you like. I'll tell you right out, I am a man who likes talking to a man who likes to talk.



Sam Spade:
Swell. Will we talk about the black bird?

Joel Cairo:
You... you bungled it. You and your stupid attempt to buy it. Kemedov found out how valuable it was, no wonder we had such an easy time stealing it. You... you imbecile. You bloated idiot. You stupid fat-head you.

Kasper Gutman:
I distrust a man who says "when." If he's got to be careful not to drink too much, it's because he's not to be trusted when he does.

Sam Spade:
You gotta convince me that you know what this is all about, that you aren't just fiddling around hoping it'll all... come out right in the end!

Bryan:
Who killed Thursby?



Sam Spade:
I don't know.



Bryan:
Perhaps you don't, but you could make an excellent guess.



Sam Spade:
My guess might be excellent or it might be crummy, but Mrs. Spade didn't raise any children dippy enough to make guesses in front of a district attorney, and an assistant district attorney and a stenographer.



Bryan:
Why shouldn't you, if you have nothing to conceal?



Sam Spade:
Everybody has something to conceal.



Bryan:
I'm a sworn officer of the law, 24 hours a day, and neither formality nor informality justifies you withholding evidence of crime from me. Except, of course, on constitutional grounds.



Sam Spade:
[ranting] Now, both you and the police have as much as accused me of being mixed up in the other night's murders. Well, I've had trouble with both of you before. And as far as I can see my best chance of clearing myself of the trouble you're trying to make for me, is by bringing in the murderers all tied up. 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.


[turns to stenographer]



Sam Spade:
You getting this alright, son, or am i goin' too fast for ya?



Stenographer:
No sir, I'm getting it alright.



Sam Spade:
Good work.
