The Pickwick Papers (1952)
Nathaniel Winkle: Gentlemen, Mr. Jingle is the viper in our midst.
Samuel Pickwick: Viper?
Nathaniel Winkle: Viper, sir.
Tracy Tupman: Nonsense, Winkle.
Samuel Pickwick: Nonsense, Winkle.
Augustus Snodgrass: N-nonsense, Winkle.
Nathaniel Winkle: Very well, then... we shall see,

Samuel Pickwick: [to Mr. Jingle] Sir! I have only this to say to you, sir: I might have taken a greater avenge for the indignities which I suffered at your hands; but I will content myself with exposing you, sir - which is a duty I feel I owe to society.
Mr. Jingle: [to the others present] Good fellow, Pickwick... fine heart... a stout old boy... but a little odd... slightly eccentric.
Samuel Pickwick: I will add this, sir: I consider you to be a ruffian, sir. And a rascal, sir. And worse than any man I've ever seen... or even heard of!
Mr. Nupkins: Sir! Do you admit you're an impostor?
Mr. Jingle: Never admit anything, sir... bad for liver.

[Pickwick is angry at Mrs. Bardell's lawyers over her breach of promise suit, and they are goading him]
Dodson: Perhaps you'd like to call us swindlers, sir. Pray do so if you feel disposed, ah pray do, sir.
Samuel Pickwick: I do. You ARE swindlers.
Dodson: Very good. You'd better call us thieves, sir. Perhaps you'd like to asault one of us.
Fogg: Pray do so, if you would. We would make not the slightest resistance.
Sam Weller: [realizes what's happening and steps in to save Mr. Pickwick] You just come away, sir. Battledore and shuttlecock's a *wery* good game... provided you ain't the shuttlecock and two lawyers ain't the battledores.
