If frugality were established in the state, and if our expenses were laid out to meet needs rather than superfluities of life, there might be fewer wants, and even fewer pleasures, but infinitely more happiness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Paula McFadden: Would you be interested in my bedroom?
Elliot: You talking to me?
Paula McFadden: You can have the big bedroom for 50 dollars more a month, payable in cash right now. We'll move into yours in the morning.
Elliot: Oh, you mean a rent increase for getting what I should have gotten and what I didn't get in the first place? No, thank you.
Paula McFadden: Well then, would you be interested in lending me 50 dollars. I'll pay you either 7 and a half percent interest or do your laundry. Take your pick.
Elliot: They really cleaned you out, huh?
Paula McFadden: Everyone from here to Italy.
Elliot: I've got, uh, twenty... twenty-eight dollars and change. I'll split it with you. And starting opening night I get 240 a week so I'll make a deal. I'll pay all the living expenses until you get yourself a job. And, I'll even do my own laundry.
Paula McFadden: I see. And what do you get?
Elliot: Oh, all you have to do is be nice to me.
Paula McFadden: You go to hell!
Elliot: Will you listen very, very carefully to me just for one... uh, this may be the last time I ever speak to you. Not everyone in this world is after your magnificent body, lady. In the first place it's not so magnificent. It, it's fair, alright? But it's not keeping me up nights thinking about it, you know? I don't even think you're very pretty. Maybe if you smiled once in a while okay but I don't want you to do anything against your religion. And you are not the only person in this city ever to get dumped on! I, myself, am a recent dumpee. I am a dedicated actor, Paula, you know? I am dedicated to my art and my craft, I value what I do. And because of a mentally arthritic director I am about to play the second greatest role in the history of the English speaking theater like a double order of fresh California fruit salad. When I say nice I mean nice, you know? Decent and fair. I deserve it. Because I'm a nice decent and fair person, I don't want to jump on your bones. I don't even want to see you in the morning. But I will tell you one thing I do like about you Paula. Lucy. Lucy's your best part. Lucy is worth putting up with you for. So here is 14 dollars for the care and feeding of that terrific kid. You get zippidy-do-da. You want any money? Borrow it from your 10 year old daughter. I'm am now going inside my room to meditate away my hostility toward you. Personally, I don't think it can be done!More [01/01/2008 12:01:00]
Elliot Garfield: Haven't we met? In our apartment?
Paula McFadden: Please, I enjoy shopping. Don't ruin this for me too.
Elliot Garfield: Relax. We don't have to fight until we get home. We need soap, Darling.
Paula McFadden: Not in my bathroom we don't.
Elliot Garfield: This is silly. If you get what you need and I get what I need we're going to blow a lot of bread getting the same things. Including bread. Why don't we have one shopping list and split the bill?
Paula McFadden: On what items?
Elliot Garfield: Food! Bathroom and kitchen cleansers. Everything. Except male and female do-dads. In that area you go your way and I'll go mine.
Paula McFadden: We split everything?
Elliot Garfield: Everything. I'll pay my full one third share.
Paula McFadden: One third?
Elliot Garfield: I am not the one with the daughter.
Paula McFadden: What's the matter? Didn't Lady Anne wash her hands the other night?
Elliot Garfield: Quick. Quick. I like a quick girl. Okay, right down the middle.
Paula McFadden: Okay.
Elliot Garfield: Hold it. Hold it. I'll take that.
Elliot Garfield: [Walking down the street] This is a good idea sharing expenses like this. By the way, I need shoes next week. A little Chianti? Can't have spaghetti marinaro without a little vino.
Paula McFadden: Not on my budget.
Elliot Garfield: Hey, hey, no. I'll blow for the booze, eh? Short of stature but not tight of pocket.
Liquor Store Salesman: Can I help you?
Elliot Garfield: Yes. A bottle of your finest, cheap Chianti, please.
Liquor Store Salesman: I've got a nice California red for a dollar eighty.
Elliot Garfield: Dollar eighty. Nothing from Kansas?
Liquor Store Salesman: Comedian. Seriously. This is a good wine.

Harry Palmer:
What exactly have you been saying we do in Latvia?

Leo Newbigen:
I told the brain exactly what it wanted to hear.

Harry Palmer:
Oh, yes? What would that be, Leo?

Leo Newbigen:
I told it we had three hundred agents in Latvia dismantling missile sites and professional saboteurs ready for armed insurrection.

Harry Palmer:
Er, or political assassination.

Leo Newbigen:
Um, hmn. Mass uprisings...

Harry Palmer:
Over throwing governments.

Leo Newbigen:
Yeah, over throwing anything at all.

Harry Palmer:
Three hundred agents? How much a week?

Leo Newbigen:
Thirty thousand dollars.

Harry Palmer:
Thirty thousand dollars a week?

Leo Newbegin:
Plus expenses and from now on, you're in on half.

Harry Palmer:
Oh, thank you, Leo. But I would like to stay alive to spend it. That lunatic is about to invade Soviet territory.

Leo Newbigen:
And we're not going to be around when he does.

Harry Palmer:

[when Marlowe declines to blackmail her] Wha-? You don't want money?

Philip Marlowe:
Oh sure. All I itch for is money. I'm so greedy that for fifty pounds a day plus expenses on the day I work, I risk my future, the hatred of the cops, of Eddie Mars and his pals, I dodge bullets and put up with slaps and say "Thank you very much. If you have any further trouble please call me: I'll just put my card here on the table." I do all that for a few pounds. And maybe just a little bit to protect what little pride a sick and broken old man has in his family, so that he can believe his blood is not poisoned. That his little girls - though they may be a trifle wild - are not perverts and killers.

I hope you brought a toothbrush.

[aloud] Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, it is now my duty to advise you on how you should vote when you retire from this court. In the last few weeks we have all heard some pretty extraordinary allegations being made about one of the prettiest, about one of the most distinguished politicians ever to rise to high office in this country - or not, as you may think. We have heard, for example, from Mr Bex Bissell - a man who by his own admission is a liar, a humbug, a hypocrite, a vagabond, a loathsome spotted reptile and a self-confessed chicken strangler. You may choose, if you wish, to believe the transparent tissue of odious lies which streamed on and on from his disgusting, greedy, slavering lips. That is entirely a matter for you. Then we have been forced to listen to the pitiful whining of Mr Norma St.John Scott - a scrounger, parasite, pervert, a worm, a self-confessed player of the pink oboe; a man, or woman who by his, or her, own admission chews pillows! It would be hard to imagine, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, a more discredited and embittered man, a more unreliable witness upon whose testimony to convict a man who you may rightly think should have become Prime Minister of his country or President of the world. You may on the other hand choose to believe the evidence of Mrs Scott - in which case I can only say that you need psychiatric help of the type provided by the excellent Dr Gleadle. On the evidence of the so-called "hit man", Mr Olivia Newton-John, I would prefer to draw a discreet veil. He is, as we know, a man with a criminal past, but I like to think - ho, ho, ho - no criminal future. He is a piece of slimy refuse, unable to carry out the simplest murder plot without cocking it up, to the distress of many. On the other hand, you may think Mr Newton-John is one of the most intelligent, profound, sensitive and saintly personalities of our time. That is entirely a matter for you. I now turn to the evidence about the money and Mr Jack Haywire and Mr Nadir Rickshaw, neither of whom, as far as I can make out, are complete and utter crooks, though the latter in incontestably foreign and, you may well think, the very type to boil up foul-smelling biryanis at all hours of the night and keep you awake with his pagan limbo dancing. It is not contested by the defence that enormous sums of money flowed towards them in unusual ways. What happened to that money, we shall never know. But I put it to you, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, that there are a number of totally innocent ways in which that £20,000 could have been spent: on two tickets for Evita, a centre court seat at Wimbledon, or Mr Thrope may have decided simply to blow it all on a flutter on the Derby. That is his affair and it is not for us to pry. It will be a sad day for this country when a leading politician cannot spend his election expenses in any way he sees fit. One further point - you will probably have noticed that three of the defendants have very wisely chosen to exercise their inalienable right not to go into the witness box to answer a lot of impertinent questions. I will merely say that you are not to infer from this anything other than that they consider the evidence against them so flimsy that it was scarcely worth their while to rise from their seats and waste their breath denying these ludicrous charges. In closing, I would like to pay tribute to Mr Thrope's husband, Miriam, who has stood by him throughout this long and unnecessary ordeal. I know you will join me in wishing them well for a long and happy future. And now, being mindful of the fact that the Prudential Cup begins on Saturday, putting all such thoughts from your mind, you are now to retire - as indeed should I - you are now to retire, carefully to consider your verdict of "Not Guilty".

We have the papers, we need to arrest him. You know his movements, we know the law.
