Shanghai Lily: It took more than one man to change my name to Shanghai Lily.
Mr. Henry Chang: You're in China now, sir, where time and life have no value.
Shanghai Lily: When I needed your faith, you withheld it; and now, when I don't need it, and don't deserve it, you give it to me.
Reverend Mr. Carmichael: Love without faith, like religion without faith, doesn't amount to very much.
Captain Donald 'Doc' Harvey: You appear to be nervous. Sleep would do you more good.
Shanghai Lily: What makes you think I'm nervous?
Captain Donald 'Doc' Harvey: For one thing, your hands are trembling.
Shanghai Lily: It's because you touched me, Doc.
Sam Salt: I don't know what you're saying brother... but don't say it again.
Mr. Henry Chang: I live by my own code.
Sam Salt: I can't make head or tail outta' you, Mr. Chang. Are you Chinese, or are you white, or what are you?
Mr. Henry Chang: My mother is Chinese. My father was white.
Sam Salt: You look more like a white man to me.
Mr. Henry Chang: I'm not proud of my white blood.
Sam Salt: Oh, you're not, are you?
Mr. Henry Chang: No, I'm not.
Sam Salt: Rather be a Chinaman, huh?
Mr. Henry Chang: Yes.
Sam Salt: What future is there in bein' a Chinaman? You're born, eat your way through a handful of rice, and you die. What a country! Let's have a drink!
