Alfred Kralik:
[asking Pirovitch about cost of living for married couple] Suppose a fellow gets an apartment with three rooms. Dining room, bedroom, living room.



Pirovitch:
What do you need three rooms for? You live in the bedroom.



Alfred Kralik:
Where do you eat?



Pirovitch:
In the kitchen. You get a nice big kitchen.



Alfred Kralik:
Where do you entertain?



Pirovitch:
Entertain? What are you, an embassador? Who do you want to entertain? Listen listen, if someone is really your friend, he comes after dinner.

Klara Novak (Miss Novak):
All my knowledge came from books, and I'd just finished a novel about a glamorous French actress from the Comedie Francaise. That's the theater in France. When she wanted to arouse a man's interest, she treated him like a dog.



Alfred Kralik:
Yes, well, you treated me like a dog.



Klara Novak (Miss Novak):
Yes, but instead of licking my hand, you barked.

Alfred Kralik:
There might be a lot we don't know about each other. You know, people seldom go to the trouble of scratching the surface of things to find the inner truth.



Klara Novak (Miss Novak):
Well I really wouldn't care to scratch your surface, Mr. Kralik, because I know exactly what I'd find. Instead of a heart, a hand-bag. Instead of a soul, a suitcase. And instead of an intellect, a cigarette lighter... which doesn't work.

Alfred Kralik:
Pirovitch, did you ever get a bonus?



Pirovitch:
Yes, once.



Alfred Kralik:
Yeah. The boss hands you the envelope. You wonder how much is in it, and you don't want to open it. As long as the envelope's closed, you're a millionaire.
