Fun Stuff

From Mr. Moto in Danger Island (1939)
Joan Castle: Mr. Moto!
Kentaro Moto: Good evening, everybody.
Joan Castle: He's a detective. He's come here to arrest my father. You can't take him! He was framed! Please you promise me to protect us until dad's prove innocent.
Kentaro Moto: Don't be so alarmed. Moto was only an impersonation. Very convenient for the moment.
Joan Castle: I - I don't understand.
Grant: Just a penny-ante gangster playin' detective.
[Joan looked up the newspaper of San Juan Tribune, "Governor Slain by Bogus Mr. Moto! Notorious Killer Shimura and Accomplice Make Sensational Escape". They broke out of jail and resisting arrest]
Joan Castle: Shimura. You murdered the Governor. It was you, you framed my father. Now we can go back to San Juan. This proves dad innocent.
Grant: Sure, sure. Now you go back to your cabin and looked after that fever. I'll take care of this.
Joan Castle: But we can't waste anytime.
