The Night Stalker (1972 TV Movie)
[about his vampire story]
Carl Kolchak: Judge for yourself its believability and then try to tell yourself, wherever you may be, it couldn't happen here.
Carl Kolchak: [voiceover] Sherman Duffy of the New York Herald once said, "A newspaperman is the loneliest guy on earth. Socially he ranks somewhere between a hooker and a bartender. Spritually he stands with Galileo, because he knows the world is round."
Carl Kolchak: Not that it matters much, when his editor knows its flat.
Carl Kolchak: Rumor has it that the day Anthony Albert Vincenzo was born, his father left town. The story may be apocryphal, but I believe it. The only point I wonder about is why his mother didn't leave too.
Carl Kolchak: [singing] I'll take Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island, too. Watch out you great big wonderful Big Apple, Kolchak's coming back. Yeah!
Carl Kolchak: Don't look now, baby, but Kolchak's coming back in style.
Dr. Robert Makurji: [referring to Kolchak's theory about the murders] Mr. Paine, I shouldn't be so inclined to reject Mr. Kolchak's theory out of hand if I were you. It is at best highly speculative, but not altogether unwarranted.
Gail Foster: [is woken by Carl] Ohhhh, I'm sorry. I guess I fell asleep.
Carl Kolchak: Yes.
Gail Foster: What were you saying?
Carl Kolchak: You do great things for my masculine ego, you know?
Gail Foster: Yeah.
Carl Kolchak: Actually, I was saying that I think Vincenzo has the news sense of a tree stump.
[starts getting excited]
Carl Kolchak: It's got to be one man. It's got to be. Big, strong, psychotic.
Gail Foster: You're certainly making me very glad that I work nights.
Carl Kolchak: Well, I told you to quit working nights, didn't I?
[They start to kiss when the phone rings. Kolchak sighs and relutantly answers it]
Carl Kolchak: . Kolchak.
[His face lights up as he listens to the person on the other end of the line]
Carl Kolchak: . I am forever in your debt, love.
[He hangs up the phone and starts to get dressed quickly]
Gail Foster: What was that?
Carl Kolchak: The killer's done it again.
Gail Foster: [Horrified] Oh, no.
Carl Kolchak: Only this time, he was seen.
District Attorney Tom Paine: [after a disastrously failed capture attempt of Skorzeny] Well, what are we gonna do?
Carl Kolchak: [from the back of the room] *Now* are you willing to listen to my insane ideas?
Sheriff Warren A. Butcher: [angrily] Kolchak, get out of here!
District Attorney Tom Paine: Warren, hold it, hold it! Kolchak, you were there, weren't you?
Carl Kolchak: Yes.
District Attorney Tom Paine: Every man we've questioned insists not only that Skorzeny was possessed of incredible strength, but that he was shot more than once during the capture attempt.
Carl Kolchak: [sarcastically] Oh, I'd say thirty or forty times.
Police Chief Ed Masterson: I'm sorry, I'm not buying that.
Carl Kolchak: Captain, you have two choices. Either he was shot, or your entire police department is blind.
District Attorney Tom Paine: [sees Masterson getting angry] Ed, let's admit it. We had the man, had him cornered, and we couldn't hold him. Let Kolchak have his say.
Carl Kolchak: [picking up phone] Kolchak.
Dr. John O'Brien: Hi, Carl. I just thought you'd like to know I heard the Parkway Hospital was knocked over.
Carl Kolchak: Yeah? Knocked over for what? Cash, drugs, equipment, what?
[shocked reaction to the response]
Carl Kolchak: Blood?
Dr. John O'Brien: That's right. Every container in the place. Their entire stock.
Carl Kolchak: What about blood type?
Dr. John O'Brien: Seems blood type and Rh factor didn't much matter
Carl Kolchak: [sarcastically, when Vincenzo criticizes his story] How about a special featurette, with a border of roses? An interview with the two girl victims, in Heaven, with a cellestial choir in the background.
