The Cat and the Canary (1939)
Cicily: It's awful spooky down here. Do you believe in reincarnation?
Wally Campbell: Huh?
Cicily: You know... that dead people come back?
Wally Campbell: You mean like the Republicans?
Wally Campbell: [to Joyce] You know, what this party needs is more drinks and more laughs.I'll tell yuh, I'll bring a bottle of scotch from the living room. Let's all drink scotch and make wry faces.
Wally Campbell: I'm so scared, even my goose pimples have goose pimples.
Miss Lu: There are spirits all around you.
Wally Campbell: Well, could you put some in a glass with a little ice? I need it badly.
Wally Campbell: Wait. My mother brought me up never to be caught twice in the same lady's bedroom.
Mr. Crosby, lawyer: [Referring to Miss Lu's talk about spiritualism] Wait, wait! Stop all this, Miss Lu. Do you want to frighten these ladies out of their wits?
Fred Blythe: [Sarcastically referring to Aunt Susan and Cicily] Oh, there's not much danger in that.
Wally Campbell: [Wiscracking to his stoic Indian guide] You seem like the jolly type, Clarence. D'yuh like jokes? You don't mind if I ramble on, do you? Keeps my mind off the malaria germs.
Wally Campbell: [to Joyce] You know, what this party needs is more drinks and more laughs. I'll tell you, I'll bring a bottle of scotch from the dining room, and we'll sit around here and drink scotch and make wry faces.
Wally Campbell: Do you get it? "Scotch and rye"?
Wally Campbell: [Joyce starts to chuckle, and Wally hands her his pistol] Here. I don't need a gun with jokes like that.
Fred Blythe: I could use a drink.
Wally Campbell: Yeah, I could too. Might as well be a live stiff as a dead stiff.
