Remember the Night (1940)
Aunt Emma: [after commenting about love, even though she was never married] You don't have to be a horse to judge a horse show.
Lee Leander: Suppose you were starving to death and you didn't have any food and you didn't have any place to get anything. And there were some loaves of bread out in front of a market. Now remember, you're starving to death and the man's back was turned. Would you swipe one?
John Sargent: If I was starving, you bet I would.
Lee Leander: That's because you're honest. You see, I'd have a six-course dinner at a fancy restaurant across the street and then say I forgot my purse. Get the difference?
Lee Leander: I suppose you do this with all the lady prisoners?
John Sargent: Oh my, yes. My life is just one long round of whoopee.
Lee Leander: Well, you're in a good spot for it.
John Sargent: Wonderful! I merely have to raise my finger and my slightest whim is satisfied. Now if you'll...
Lee Leander: And I suppose if anybody says no, you just put them right back in the cooler.
John Sargent: That's right. Look when court reconvenes, I'm going to try my best to put you in jail for a good long time. That's my business, but you haven't been convicted yet, so I don't see why you shouldn't enjoy Christmas like the rest of us. That's why I had Mike get you out.
Lee Leander: And bring me up here!
John Sargent: I did not ask him to bring you up here!
Lee Leander: Then why did that gorilla bring me up here?
John Sargent: Because he's got a mind like a... sewer!
Lee Leander: Thanks.
John Sargent: You threw a lighted match into the wastebasket?
Lee Leander: Well I wasn't aiming for the spittoon.
John Sargent: You know that's called arson?
Lee Leander: No! I thought that was when you bit somebody!
Lee Leander: One of these days one of you boys is going to start one of these scenes differently and one of us girls is going to drop dead from surprise.
John Sargent: What are you doing here?
Lee Leander: I don't know yet, but I've got a rough idea.
John Sargent: Well, I'm glad you're out...
Lee Leander: Now what do I have to do for it?
John Sargent: Well for one thing, you might say thank you, but if that doesn't fit into your plans let's skip it.
