The Ghost Breakers (1940)
Geoff Montgomery: It's worse than horrible because a zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.
Larry Lawrence: You mean like Democrats?
Larry Lawrence: [to Alex] Oh, you look like a black out in a blackout. This keeps up, I'm gonna have to paint you white.
Larry Lawrence: This is no penny ante game, Alex.
Alex: Well, what are you gonna get out of it?
Larry Lawrence: Heart failure.
Alex: I just love talking to luggage. I used to be a porter.
Alex: Hey, boss, you ain't goin' upstairs, are ya? Where those ghosts is?
Larry Lawrence: Listen, you stay there, and if a couple a fellas come runnin' down the stairs in a few minutes, let the first one go. That'll be me.
Alex: If somebody passes you, that'll be me.
Larry Lawrence: The girls call me Pilgrim, because every time I dance with one I make a little progress.
Parada: Are you the one advising Miss Carter to sell the castle?
Larry Lawrence: No, my advice is keep the castle and sell the ghosts.
Parada: I myself have heard of only one ghost: the spirit of Don Santiago.
Larry Lawrence: Tell me, does he appear nightly or just Sundays and Holidays?
Larry Lawrence: Me, I'm mentally retarded. I'm still 11 years old when it comes to the 4th of July, circuses and haunted castles.
Larry Lawrence: [the power goes out in the storm] Basil Rathbone must be having a party.
Larry Lawrence: [about Alex] He always sees the darker side of everything. He was born during an eclipse.
Alex: A lot of folks don't like you, boss. I expect some of these mornings when I come to get you outta the bed, I'll have to pull the sheet up instead of down.
Larry Lawrence: I'm in great shape, for the shape I'm in.
Raspy Kelly: He's drivin' his car, see? Another car comes along, runs him into a ditch. Marky gets all smashed up.
Larry Lawrence: When did it happen?
Larry Lawrence: Well, I can't tell you exactly, but it'll probably be tomorrow.
Francisco Mederes: He wasn't playing. That was the real ghost!
Larry Lawrence: Now we have something to worry about on our honeymoon.
Mary Carter: Our what?
Larry Lawrence: Our honeymoon. Didn't I tell ya?
Mary Carter: No, but I'd like to hear about it.
Larry Lawrence: You would?
Larry Lawrence: I don't mind dying, but I hate the preliminaries.
Larry Lawrence: How'd you like the program?
Telephone Girl: Oh, you were wonderful, if you're any judge.
Larry Lawrence: You're bleached!
Alex: No, I ain't, boss. When I get scared, my albino blood shows through.
[Alex jumps on the assailant in armor struggling with Larry and pulls off the assailant's helmet to see a disfigured man]
Alex: [gasps] It's a zombie!
Larry Lawrence: It ain't Baby Stooks!
Larry Lawrence: No, my name is Lawrence.
Mary Carter: Lawrence what?
Larry Lawrence: Lawrence.
Mary Carter: [in mocking/sarcastic tone] Lawrence Lawrence.
Larry Lawrence: Yeah, and my middle name is Lawrence too. My folks had no imagination.
Raspy Kelly: They don't mind a little publicity. They kinda like it.
Larry Lawrence: I know. I plug them, and they'll plug me.
Mary Carter: Hello, operator? Operator? Operator, the lights in my room. What? The lightning?
Larry Lawrence: If that's Raspy Kelly, I owe him some money.
Alex: Well, from the tone of his infections, you better pay him.
