Magnificent Obsession (1954)
Dr. Bob Merrick: [of a plan to do anonymous good works] Well, if it's as simple as all that, why, I'll certainly give it a chance.
Edward Randolph: Now wait, Merrick! Don't try to use this unless you're ready for it! You can't just try this out for a week like a new car, you know! And if you think you can feather your own nest with it, just forget it. Besides, this is dangerous stuff. One of the first men who used it went to the Cross at the age of thirty-three...
Edward Randolph: Once you find the way, you'll be bound. It will obsess you. but believe me, it will be a magnificent obsession.
Dr. Bob Merrick: Suddenly it seemed sensible to enjoy life while I could.
Dr. Derwin Dodge: My, how you've succeeded.
Helen Phillips: Smash up somebody's car when you're drunk and write out a check. Get in a mess with a showgirl and write out a check. And when a man dies, write out a check to his widow. Account paid in full.
Helen Phillips: I think you're twisted my husband beliefs into something very cheap.
Dr. Bob Merrick: Don't get excited. Not today.
Helen Phillips: May I... May I get excited tomorrow?
Dr. Bob Merrick: Yes.
Helen Phillips: And you'll be with me?
Helen Phillips: Yes, darling. I'll be with you tomorrow.
