I don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble.

Brigid O'Shaughnessy:
I haven't lived a good life. I've been bad, worse than you could know.



Sam Spade:
You know, that's good, because if you actually were as innocent as you pretend to be, we'd never get anywhere.

Keep on riding me and they're gonna be picking iron out of your liver.

The cheaper the crook, the gaudier the patter, eh?

Sam Spade:
Ten thousand? We were talking about a lot more money than this.



Kasper Gutman:
Yes, sir, we were, but this is genuine coin of the realm. With a dollar of this, you can buy ten dollars of talk.

Kasper Gutman:
I couldn't be fonder of you if you were my own son. But, well, if you lose a son, its possible to get another. There's only one Maltese Falcon.

Spade:
When a man's partner is killed, he's supposed to do something about it. It doesn't make any difference what you thought of him. He was your partner and you're supposed to do something about it. And it happens we're in the detective business. Well, when one of your organization gets killed, it's-it's bad business to let the killer get away with it, bad all around, bad for every detective everywhere.

Spade:
We didn't exactly believe your story, Miss O'Shaughnessy, we believed your 200 dollars. I mean you paid us more than if you had been telling us the truth, and enough more to make it alright.

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.

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?

Sam Spade:
[impatiently] Now, let's *talk* about the black bird.



Kasper Gutman:
Let's. Mr. Spade, have you any conception of how much money can be got for that black bird?



Sam Spade:
No.



Kasper Gutman:
Well, sir, if I told you... If I told you *half*... you'd call me a liar.



Sam Spade:
No, not even if I thought so.

If you kill me, how are you gonna get the bird? And if I know you can't afford to kill me, how are you gonna scare me into giving it to you?

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.

I hope you're not letting yourself be influenced by the guns these pocket edition desperados are waving around, because I've practiced taking guns from these boys before so we'll have no trouble there.
