Quiz Show (1994)
[At a poker game]
Dick Goodwin: I know you're lying.
Charles Van Doren: Bluffing. The word is bluffing.

Dick Goodwin: 21 is rigged and I can prove it... I have Enright cold and that means I have you.
Kitner: Really?
Dick Goodwin: Really.
Kitner: Then how come you're the one who's sweating?

Dick Goodwin: I asked myself, "why would he do this, he knows I'll come after him?" Then it occurred to me. He knows I'll come after him.

Dick Goodwin: Excuse me. Do you think he might see me before the peacock molts?
Kintner's Secretary: Who are you with again?
Dick Goodwin: I'm with the United States Congress. Perhaps you've heard of them.

Dick Goodwin: You're to receive the questions in advance, and I'm to thank you for the courtesy of attending this hearing.
Martin Rittenhome: Mercy. What a grueling line of inquiry.
Dick Goodwin: Must have a familiar ring - the questions in advance.

Dick Goodwin: And I'll send you a little helpful reminder. You'll notice it because it'll look very much like a subpoena.

Dick Goodwin: You know, money isn't everything.
Sandra Goodwin: I'm not the one who came home with a Chrysler catalogue.

Dick Goodwin: Hey, you don't have to be a genius to connect the dots.
Charles Van Doren: Well, don't connect them through me.
Dick Goodwin: Hey, don't treat me like some member of your goddamn fan club. Are you telling me everybody got the answers but you?
Charles Van Doren: You're so persistent, Dick. You know, I really envy that.
Dick Goodwin: Was it just the money, Charlie?
Charles Van Doren: You'll forgive me, but anyone who thinks money is ever "just money" couldn't have much of it.
Dick Goodwin: Charlie, you wanna insult me, fine, but you can't envy me at the same time.

Dick Goodwin: [of Charles Van Doren] There's absolutely no need to drag the man into the spotlight.
Sandra Goodwin: You dragged Herb Stempel into the spotlight.
Dick Goodwin: Stempel? The man has to be dragged from the spotlight with his teeth marks still on it!

[while Dan Enright is testifying]
Dick Goodwin: I thought we were gonna get television. The truth is... television is gonna get us.

Martin Rittenhome: Television is gonna go on. The quiz shows are gonna go on. Makes me wonder what you hope to accomplish with all this.
Dick Goodwin: Don't worry, I'm just getting started.
Martin Rittenhome: You're a bright young kid with a bright future. Watch yourself out there.

Dick Goodwin: [Dick Goodwin questions Dan Enright about evidence of Twenty One being fixed] Dan, I have it on the kinescope, it's clear as day. The man literally did a double-take.
Enright: [laughing] He did a double-take? And who told you this? Is this Herb again? Or is this the Greenwich Village Beatnik?
Dick Goodwin: That's interesting, why is he a beatnik? Because he's not Charlie Van Doren?
Enright: Yeah, you're damn right he's not Charlie Van Doren. You know, you got these crackpots coming out of the woodwork, you're snooping around asking questions. You don't have a shred of concrete evidence.
Dick Goodwin: Dan, let me tell you something. In this envelope are all the questions that James Snodgrass was asked on Twenty One. The odd thing about this envelope is that he appeared on the show January 13th, if you recall. Yet, he somehow mailed this to himself on January 11th via registered mail. I'd say that's pretty goddamn concrete, wouldn't you?
