[after being called for questioning by the government on suspicions of Communist affiliations]

Rupert Macabee: I'm so sick and tired of people asking me if I'm this, if I'm that!

[after being told that the political turmoil in America is just a "passing phase."]

King Shahdov: Quite so. In the meantime, I'll sit it out in Europe.

Rupert Macabee: Monopoly is the menace of free enterprise. As I look back, sixty years ago...

King Shahdov: Where were you sixty years ago?

King Shahdov: Immunity from what?

King Shahdov: But that question is absurd.

Lawyer: There are many things absurd these days...
