Alfred Kralik:
Flora, take a letter. Ah... To whom it may concern. Mr. Vadas has been in the employ of Matuschek & Company for the last two years, during which he has been very efficient as a stool pigeon, a troublemaker, and a rat.



Ferenc Vadas:
Now look here!



Alfred Kralik:
And if he doesn't clear out of here he's going to get a punch in the nose! Yours very truly, Alfred Kralik, Manager, Matuschek & Company.

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:
[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.

Pepi Katona:
[leaving Mr.Matuschek's room in hospital] Well Doctor, I would say it's a nervous breakdown. What do you think?



Doctor:
It appears to be an acute epileptoid manifestation and a pan phobic melancholiac with indication of a neurasthenia cordus.



Pepi Katona:
Is that more expensive than a nervous breakdown?
