The Saint Strikes Back (1939)
Val Travers: Why are you telling *me* all this?
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': Because... well... because I love you. But don't let's get sticky about it - I'm really a very shallow person. I also love fireflies, mocking-birds and pink sunsets. I think, however, that we could find each other more diverting than a pink sunset, don't you?
Val Travers: I don't know what you're talking about.
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': Well, I wouldn't run away, Miss Travers, because I know where you live.
Val Travers: Who are you?
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': Well, not the man who knows everything - just the man who knows the important things. You're important to me - that's why I know you.
Val Travers: I've never seen you before.
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': You will again.
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': [to Fernack referring to Val] I mean how could a girl as pretty as that be so clever?
Allan Breck: [after Simon kisses Val and is slapped by her] Mr. Templar!
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': [to Val] I'm very sorry but under certain circumstances I simply can't resist the temptation to be a cad.
[Referring to Breck]
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': I can see by this gentleman's manner that he's never kissed you but, uh, would like to.
Val Travers: Get out if here!
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': As you get to know me better, you'll realize that I have moments of almost maudlin sentimentality. Actually we're quite bit alike. You could never live without adventure, and neither could I.
Cullis: [Referring to Simon] That fellow is notorious. You can't be serious.
Police Commisioner: He proved his worth in New York. Gentlemen, sometimes where there's gangrene, a red-hot iron is the best cure.
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': The telephone is perhaps one of man's most important contributions to the scheme of things.
Inspector Fernack: What are you doing there?
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': Helping you unpack.
Inspector Fernack: No you don't. You can't do that to me, Simon. I've got orders to go to San Francisco. and, by God, I'm going.
Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint': That's fine. I'll go along with you just to give you an excuse for going. I'll give myself an excuse to see a girl who's much too pretty to be clever.
