And Then There Were None (1945)
Vera Claythorne: I'm afraid it's no use. The boat won't come until Monday.
General Sir John Mandrake: No boat will ever come. We're here forever.
Emily Brent: If I had a butler like Rogers, I'd soon get rid of him.
Emily Brent: Very stupid to kill the only servant in the house. Now we don't even know where to find the marmalade.
Judge Francis J. Quinncannon: Mr. Owen could only come to the island in one way. It's perfectly clear. Mr. Owen is one of us.
Thomas Rogers: Never in my life have I been accused of any crime, sir - and if that's what you think of me, I shan't serve any dinner.
Detective William Henry Blore: I know who took the dining room key!
Philip Lombard: Who?
Detective William Henry Blore: Rogers! He had the key to the dining room, fact. He unlocks the door, takes a little Indian, goes out and chops up some sticks, fact. And then...
Philip Lombard: And then he takes the chopper, and splits his own cranium, fact. I'd like to see you do that to yourself, Blore. It would take practice!
Judge Francis J. Quincannon: So you see, the whole thing has been as inevitable as in a nursery rhyme. When the boat arrives from the mainland, there will be ten dead bodies, and a riddle no one can solve on Indian Island.
Detective William Henry Blore: [every time he's about to make some blunder] I get it!
Judge Francis J. Quinncannon: The place for nursery rhymes is in the nursery.
