The Maltese Falcon (1931)
Wilmer Cook: Well, make him lay off me or I'll fog him and nothing'll stop me.
Effie Perrine: Sam, it's a gorgeous new customer.
Sam Spade: Gorgeous?
Effie Perrine: A knockout.
Sam Spade: Send her right in, honey.
Effie Perrine: [to the off-screen customer] Will you step in, please?
[Joel Cairo walks in.]
Casper Gutman: You're a close-mouthed man, sir.
Sam Spade: No, I like to talk.
Casper Gutman: We'll talk if you like. And I'll tell you right now that I'm a man who likes to talk to a man who likes to talk.
Ruth Wonderly: You have a lot of trouble with your women, don't you, Sam?
Casper Gutman: You are here, Mr. Spade, as Miss Wonderly's representative?
Sam Spade: No, I'm here looking out for myself.
Sam Spade: [Asking operator for telephone exchange] Berkeley double o seven.
Sam Spade: Listen, Dundy, it's a long time since I burst into tears because a policeman didn't like me.
Sam Spade: Come on in, precious.
Police Lt. Dundy: [walking in] Who were you expecting, darling?
Sam Spade: You, sweetheart.
Ruth Wonderly: I know I haven't any right to ask you to help me blindly. But I do ask it. Oh, be generous, Mr. Spade.
Sam Spade: You won't need much of anybody's help. You're pretty good. As a matter of fact, you're very good. It's chiefly your eyes, I think, and the throb you get in your voice when you say, "Oh, be generous, Mr. Spade."
Dr. Joel Cairo: You will please clasp your hands together at the back of your neck.
Ruth Wonderly: Oh, I'm so tired, Sam. Tired of everything, of myself, of lying, of thinking up lies, until I don't know a lie from the truth.
