The Junkman (1982)
Jack: The story here in the "Herald Examiner" says that Harlan was a nice guy.
Bruce: Hmph, well I guess you can't believe everything you read nowdays!
Harlan Hollis: Thanks, guys.

Susan Clark: Look at this. We found your picture at the plane crash site.
Harlan Hollis: That's a publicity shot. I haven't even seen it yet!
Susan Clark: Well then that means that it must be someone *inside* your company that's trying to kill you.
Harlan Hollis: I just don't want to believe that either Richard, Michael or Arthur would want to kill me.
Susan Clark: Well somebody has gone to a lot of time and trouble to get rid of you, and they've been pretty damn obvious about it!

[after Harlan is presumed dead]
Harlan Hollis: Hiya, Hoyt.
Hoyt: Oh, hi, Harlan. HARLAN? Sonova gun, man! I heard you were dead!
Harlan Hollis: They can't kill me!

Hoyt: Here are the keys to the car - it's my wife's car.
Harlan Hollis: Your wife's car? Don't you have anything better?
Hoyt: Look, it's the yellow 'vette. I think it'll do the job.
Harlan Hollis: Oh, okay.

[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!
[goes to hit Harlan but misses, trips and falls off the roof to his death]

Sgt. Gullen: [into phone] Sergeant Gullen.
Harlan Hollis: This is the Goodyear Blimp, we're coming in for an emergency landing on Sunset Boulevard. There's a limousine parked in a parking lot with a bomb in it.
Sgt. Gullen: What's your name, sir?
Harlan Hollis: This is Harlan Hollis
Sgt. Gullen: [sarcastically, thinking Harlan was killed earlier] Yeah, and I'm Woody Allen!
Harlan Hollis: [adamant] This is Harlan Hollis!
Sgt. Gullen: What's your phone number and location?
Harlan Hollis: If you look out your window, you'll probably see it. Now you'd better hurry up because this bomb's going to go off any second.
Sgt. Gullen: [turns to see blimp outside his office window] Shit! This is Sergeant Gullen. Dispatch the bomb squad and all available units to the Cinerama Dome!
