[Colton's desk is covered with money]
John Colton: Have a look at this.
Yancy Derringer: I am. In my present financial condition, I've never seen anything so beautiful.
John Colton: Yes you have. It's all bogus!
[Before he starts his investigation, Yancy talks Colton into paying for his dinner]
John Colton: Please see that I get a return on the investment.
Yancy Derringer: I'll save the after-dinner mints for you.
Yancy Derringer: My daddy used to say, "Always go to the aid of people with money. If you're in time, they may reward you; if not you can still go through their pockets before the police arrive."
Lonesome Jackson: What's an Indian like this wandering around the streets of New Orleans?
Yancy Derringer: He loves French cooking.
[Yancy sits in on a poker game with only a small stake]
Lonesome Jackson: Oh Yancy, you ain't much of a plunger. That's just chicken feed.
Yancy Derringer: Don't you know you can get the whole Mississippi River inside a riverboat just by punching one little hole.
[Yancy has lost all the money Colton gave him to play poker with Lonesome Jackson]
Yancy Derringer: Hello, Mr. Colton, can I buy you a drink?
John Colton: With what, Mr. Derringer?
Yancy Derringer: You mean you're broke, too?
