Fast and Loose (1939)
Joel Sloane: [Talking to himself in bathroom mirror] I don't know who you are, my friend, but if you stand still, I'll shave you.
Joel Sloane: [to Garda] If you see a wolf at the door, beat it. Tell him he's got the wrong address.
Joel Sloane: [to Garda as he's leaving] If a customer comes with money in his pocket, shoot first and ask questions afterward.
Nicholas Torrent: [Referring to Sloane's inappropriate tirade] I must apologize for Wilkes, Mr. Sloane. He's been librarian here so long he probably imagines this is his property. Poor chap! I think he's beginning to lose his mind.
Joel Sloane: It was a hundred miles away a minute ago.
Garda Sloane: Well, I'm going downstairs and get a paper.
Joel Sloane: For what?
Garda Sloane: Oh, just to see if any of our friends have been murdered this morning.
'Lucky' Nolan: [Resentfully] You have a peculiar genius for mixing in my affairs.
Joel Sloane: You have some peculiar affairs.
'Lucky' Nolan: [Threateningly] I'm going to show you the unpleasant side of snooping, Mr. Sloane.
'Lucky' Nolan: [after Joel gets the jump on Nolan and takes away his gun] I see you don't fight fair, Mr. Sloane.
Joel Sloane: Now I'll tell you what you're going to do. You're going to call up and instruct those men to let my wife go. She's to phone me from outside. I don't want to sound melodramatic, Mr. Nolan, but to save my wife any discomfort, I would cheerfully kill a dozen guys like you.
