Night Moves (1975)
Ellen Moseby: [of a football game] Who's winning?
Harry Moseby: Nobody. One side is just losing slower than the other.
Paula: Where were you when Kennedy got shot?
Harry Moseby: Which Kennedy?
Paula: Any Kennedy.
Harry Moseby: When the president got shot, I was on my way to San Diego. Football game. When Bobby got shot, I was sitting in a car waiting for a guy to come out of a house with his girlfriend. Working on a divorce case. One of those times I wish I was in another business.
Joey Ziegler: He'd fuck a woodpile on the chance there was a snake in it.
Paula: Oh, that's a beauty.
Harry Moseby: Yeah, but he didn't see it. He played something else and he lost. He must have regretted it every day of his life. I know I would have. As a matter of fact I do regret it, and I wasn't even born yet.
Paula: That's no excuse.
Harry Moseby: Listen Delly, I know it doesn't make much sense when you're sixteen. Don't worry. When you get to be forty, it isn't any better.
Harry Moseby: You told me fairy tales... About Malone... Billy Danreuther... The President getting shot... Your erect nipples!
Harry Moseby: What happened to your face?
Quentin: I won second prize in a fight.
Paula: [of the uninhibited Delly] Did she offer you the key to the city?
Harry Moseby: Well, no. It was, uh, more like a sightseeing tour.
Harry Moseby: Harry thinks if you call him Harry again he's gonna make you eat that cat!
Paula: When we're all as free as Delly there'll be rioting in the streets.
Harry Moseby: I saw a Rohmer film once. It was kind of like watching paint dry.
Arlene Iverson: Are you the kind of detective who, once you get on a case nothing can get you off it? Bribes, beatings, the allure of a woman...
Harry Moseby: That was true in the old days. Before we had a union.
Marv Ellman: There's nothing like having a mother and a daughter. Gives you sort of a kind of perspective.
Paula: How do you resist Delly?
Harry Moseby: Oh, I just think good, clean thoughts, like Thanksgiving, George Washington's teeth.
Joey Ziegler: Well, the world is getting smaller, the kids are getting younger and I'm getting drunk!
Nick: [about his collection of Mexican statuary] Don't you like them, Har?
Harry Moseby: I would, if they didn't all remind me of Alex Karras.
Nick: Where do you know Arlene from?
Joey Ziegler: From way back.
Nick: Oh, yeah? What's your name again? Ziegler? Joey Ziegler?
Joey Ziegler: Joey Ziegler.
Nick: I don't think you were one of the names.
Joey Ziegler: What names?
Nick: One of those she cheated on Grastner with. I got them all.
Joey Ziegler: I'm one of a small, select group. We hold meetings in a telephone booth.
