Quotes:
From It Happened One Night (1934)
Peter Warne: [Detectives are looking for Ellie] What do you mean, coming in here? What do you want, anyway?
Detective: We're looking for somebody.
Peter Warne: Yeah, well look your head off, but don't come busting in here. This isn't a public park. I could near as take a sock at you!
Detective: Take it easy, son, take it easy.
Mr. Dykes: These men are detectives, Mr. Warne.
Peter Warne: I don't care if they're the whole police department. They can't come busting in here, shooting questions at my wife.
Ellie Andrews: Now, don't get so excited, Peter. The man just asked a civil question.
Peter Warne: Oh, is that so? Say, how many times have I told you to stop butting in when I'm having an argument?
Ellie Andrews: Well, you don't have to lose your temper!
Peter Warne: [mockingly] "You don't have to lose your temper." That's what you said the other time, too. Every time I try to protect you. The other night, at the Elks Dance, when that big Swede made a pass at you!
