Harry Brock: How d'ya like that! He could've had a hundred grand. She could've had me. Both wind up with nothin'... Dumb chump!... Crazy broad!
Jim Devery: [raises a glass as a toast] To all the dumb chumps and all the crazy broads, past, present, and future, who thirst for knowledge and search for truth... who fight for justice and civilize each other... and make it so tough for crooks like you...
[Harry stares at him angrily]
Jim Devery: ...*and* me.

Harry Brock: Don't you feel good? You want a aspirin?
Jim Devery: No, no, I'm fine. In fact, considering I've been dead for sixteen years I'm in remarkable health.

Jim Devery: Anyway you've been engaged for seven years, I've never understood why you waited this long.
