'Swede' Andersen: Why did you ever go back to him, Kitty?

Kitty Collins: Maybe because I hate him. I'm poison, Swede, to myself and everybody around me! I'd be afraid to go with anyone I love for the harm I do to them! I don't care harming him!

[last lines]

[after Reardon has wrapped up the investigation, Kenyon congratulates him]

R.S. Kenyon: Owing to your splendid efforts the basic rate of The Atlantic Casualty Company - as of 1947 - will probably drop one-tenth of a cent.

[he shakes Reardon's hand]

R.S. Kenyon: Congratulations, Mr. Reardon.

Jim Reardon: I'd rather have a night's sleep.

R.S. Kenyon: Why don't you take a good rest. I must say you've earned it.

[Reardon starts to leave]

R.S. Kenyon: This is Friday... don't come in 'til Monday.

Jim Reardon: Thanks.

Jim Reardon: How well did you know the Swede?

Charleston: Me? Mister, I guess me and the Swede were about as close as two guys can get. For nearly two years we weren't more than eight and a half feet apart. That's how big the cell was.

Big Jim Colfax: [to Dum Dum] You can leave anytime you want, friend.

'Blinky' Franklin: [acting as peacemaker] Come on! Easy does it, fellas! Easy does it!

'Dum-Dum' Clarke: I don't like to be asked to come up here and then told I can go. Who do you think you're pushin' around?

Big Jim Colfax: A minute ago we were talkin' about reputations. Well, you've got quite a reputation yourself - you're supposed to be a troublemaker.

Big Jim Colfax: [deliberately taking the cigarette out of his mouth] Okay. Make some.
