The Junkman (1982)
[about Kelly's teddy bear]
Michael Fox: Honey, you want to put the, er, dog in the car?
Kelly Hollis: No, I'll keep him. And he's a bear, not a dog.
Michael Fox: Of course any fool can see that.

[on the roof of the Cinerama Dome]
Harlan Hollis: [holding gun] Okay, let's have some answers, Michael!
Michael Fox: [points to crowd of on-lookers below] You see all of that? Huh? That's me, I did it! Now you make movies, that's all. The reason you're successful is because of me - I created the image! I'm the reason that those films are box-office smashes! But you... You've got it all right in the palm of your hand. You and Richard. Well, now it's my turn, and I want it all! You gonna have to use that thing, Harlan?
Harlan Hollis: [throws gun] I don't need a gun.
[Michael looks around a picks up a wooden plank, brandishing it menacingly]
Michael Fox: [chuckles and advances] You never learn, do you, Harlan? You're still a junkman. Well I'll tell you something, Harlan. I'm going to kill you. You know something else? I'm gonna get rid of Richard, and I'm going to run the company through Kelly. You want to know something else, huh? All these people watching - well they're gonna think it was just a publicity stunt that you brought up, just a terrible accident, that just didn't quite work!

Susan Clark: Michael, I'm sorry. Is there anything I can do?
Michael Fox: Yeah, you can tell me what happened. You were up there.
Susan Clark: There was an explosion - it look like World War III. It was terrible! I- I just don't know!

[Michael enters Richard's office]
Michael Fox: Richard, Susan Clark and the crew are here. They want to finish up the story.
Arthur Wheeler: Today? No, I don't want this turning into a sideshow.
Michael Fox: Look, who's in charge of the press? That's my job. I mean, we can't just lock this place up. I mean, let's look at the reality of the situation.
Arthur Wheeler: Look, the reality of the situation is we have no idea what the hell is going on. Now we have to open this damn film in two days. Now how can we have a gailant premiere with Harlan's death hanging over our heads?
Michael Fox: That's public relations, and that's my job. Let's let them in and explain everything later.
Arthur Wheeler: No, Michael. You are wrong. We can't do that!
Michael Fox: Damn it, Arthur! We owe this to Harlan!
Michael Fox: Look, Richard, this is your company now. What do you want to do? You want to let them in or not?
Richard Harris Hill: Let 'em in.
