The Shadow (1994)
Margo Lane: Oh, God I dreamed.
Lamont Cranston: So did I. What did you dream?
Margo Lane: I was lying naked on a beach in the South Seas. The tide was coming up to my toes. The sun was beating down. My skin hot and cool at the same time. It was wonderful. What was yours?
Lamont Cranston: I dreamed I tore all the skin off my face and was somebody else underneath.
Margo Lane: You have problems.
Lamont Cranston: I'm aware of that.

Shiwan Khan: Your mind is like an open book to me!
Lamont Cranston: Then learn how to read!

Lamont Cranston: You are a barbarian.
Shiwan Khan: Thank you.

Shiwan Khan: In three days, the entire world will hear my roar, and willingly fall subject to the lost empire of Shan Kahn. That is a lovely tie, by the way. May I ask where you acquire it
Lamont Cranston: Brooks Brothers.
Shiwan Khan: Is that mid-town.
Lamont Cranston: 45th and Madison. You are a barbarian.
Shiwan Khan: Thank you. We both are.

Margo Lane: We need each other.

Lamont Cranston: The sun is shining...
Dr. Roy Tam: [finishing the code phrase of The Shadow] But the ice is slippery.
Dr. Roy Tam: You're an agent of The Shadow!
Lamont Cranston: [feigning ignorance] Who?

Lamont Cranston: Do you have *any* *idea* who you just kidnapped?
Tulku: Cranston; Lamont Cranston.
Lamont Cranston: You know my real name?
Tulku: Yes. I also know that for as long as you can remember, you struggled against your own black heart and always lost. You watched your sprit, your very face change as the beast claws its way out from within you. You are in great pain, aren't you?
[Cranston leaps at the Tulku, who magically vanishes and reappears]
Tulku: You know what evil lurks in the hearts of men, for you have seen that evil in your own heart. Every man pays a price for redemption; this is yours.
Lamont Cranston: I'm not lookin' for redemption!
Tulku: You have no choice: you *will* be redeemed, because I will teach you to use your black shadow to fight evil.

Margo Lane: [as Lamont walks away to become The Shadow] Wait! How will you know where I am?

Dr. Roy Tam: It does?

The Shadow: The weed of crime bears bitter fruit.

Dr. Roy Tam: How did you know where to find me? How did you know who I am?
The Shadow: [begins to laugh] The Shadow knows!


The Shadow (1954) (TV)
[first lines]
Lamont Cranston: [narration] This is where it started - suddenly - the Case of the Cotton Kimono.

Commissioner Weston: Good evening, Margot, Lamont. Sorry to walk in on you like this.
Lamont Cranston: We were on our way to the theater.
Margot Lane: We *are* on our way to the theater.
Commissioner Weston: Well, um...
Margot Lane: Aren't we?
Lamont Cranston: Hmm, I guess I owe the department something for that retainer they send me every month.

[a woman sings off-key in the background]
Rollo Grimmbauer: Not a great voice, Mrs. Bettinger's, but she has the will to sing. That's all I require of my pupils - the will to sing.
Lamont Cranston: Very democratic of you. Of course, it doesn't hurt anything if they also have blonde hair, blue eyes and hail from the Midwest, whose figure remains glamorous even in a cotton kimono.

Lamont Cranston: Have it your way, Professor, but it won't take long to get a warrant... or a subpoena.
Rollo Grimmbauer: I'm afraid I'll have to put you to that trouble.
Lamont Cranston: Don't apologize - it will be a pleasure.

Lamont Cranston: We're going to need help on this, m'lady - help from an old friend.
Margot Lane: The Shadow?

Lamont Cranston: Very peculiar when you think about it.
Margot Lane: What is?
Lamont Cranston: That Cissy Chadwick should be wearing a cotton kimono to have dinner with her Number One Guy. Would she, taking for granted she's an average young woman?
Margot Lane: Of course, she wouldn't! Why didn't I think of that? Unless everything she owned was at the cleaners or she didn't have anything else to wear...
