Quotes

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: Oh, they're too heavenly! This necklace--where did you get it?

Robber: At a charity ball.

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: What courage!

Robber: No, merely nimble fingers. The lady stood beside me. The Prince of Wales was announced. I could have removed her dress.

Robber: As a matter of fact, I'm opposed to the American school of banditry. I studied in Paris. You have to work harder but you do acquire a certain finesse that is missing from the stick-em-up and shoot-them-down school.

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: No!

Marianne Horne: Last week an American woman was robbed in the Simplon Express. Stripped right down to her teddies!

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: What would *you* do??

Marianne Horne: Let the train go on!

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: [laughing] Lost soul!

Marianne Horne: When I'm travelling at the rate of 80 miles per hour, I'm not responsible for my actions.

Johann Christian Lenz, Nightwatchman: Always be suspicious. Don't be fooled by anybody. Anything strange, if it ain't more than a mouse's whisker -- call the police.

Robber: You're so lovely. It's hard to be brutal with you.

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: You do strike a fresh note. Up to now, men have always been brutal because I am lovely!

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: There now, you can go!

Marianne Horne: Be displeased with me! I can't help it. I'm a respectable woman and I'm afraid.

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: Don't you think I'm afraid? I shan't close my eyes all night.

Marianne Horne: Well, this is *one* night I shall be very glad to be with my husband!

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: This is awful!

Robber: Why? I'm having a very good time. Won't you sit down?

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: You behave exactly as though you were paying a call!

Robber: I am. After a very brief and informal introduction, I'm now making a formal call.

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: Through the window...

Robber: But only to preserve your reputation. I came very discreetly by way of a drain pipe.

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: That's not legal!

Marianne Horne: A-ha! I must remember that!

Baroness Teri von Horhenfels: A peaceful night in *my bedroom?*
