Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
Peter Lorre: Dr. Einstein
[discussing the body count]
Dr. Einstein : You got twelve, they got twelve.
[angrily grabs Dr. Einstein's necktie]
Jonathan Brewster : I've got thirteen!
Dr. Einstein : No, Johnny, twelve - don't brag.
Jonathan Brewster : Thirteen! There's Mr. Spinalzo and the first one in London, two in Johannesburg, one in Sydney, one in Melbourne, two in San Francisco, one in Phoenix, Arizona...
Dr. Einstein : Phoenix?
Jonathan Brewster : The filling station...
Dr. Einstein : Filling station? Oh!
Dr. Einstein : Yes.
Jonathan Brewster : Then three in Chicago and one in South Bend. That makes thirteen.
Dr. Einstein : You cannot count the one in South Bend. He died of pneumonia!
Jonathan Brewster : He wouldn't have died of pneumonia if I hadn't shot him!
Dr. Einstein : No, no, Johnny. You cannot count him. You got twelve, they got twelve. The old ladies is just as good as you are!
Dr. Einstein : Where am I? Oh, here I am.
[after listening to Mortimer's description of a character in a play]
Dr. Einstein : You know, you were right about that fellow. He wasn't very bright.
Jonathan Brewster : Tonight, we are taking care of Mortimer.
Dr. Einstein : But, Johnny, not tonight. I'm sleepy. We'll do it tomorrow, or the next day.
Jonathan Brewster : Look at me, Doctor. You can see that it's got to be done, can't you?
Dr. Einstein : Yeah, I know that look.
Jonathan Brewster : It's a little late to dissolve our partnership.
Dr. Einstein : Okay, okay, Johnny. Okay, we'll do it. But the quick way, huh? The quick twist like in London.
Jonathan Brewster : No, Doctor. I think this calls for something special. I think, perhaps, the Melbourne method.
Dr. Einstein : [cringing] No! Not the Melbourne method, please! Two hours!
Dr. Einstein : [to Mortimer] Look, when Johnny's in that mood, he's a madman! He's a maniac! And then things happen. Horrible things...
[draws finger across throat]
Dr. Einstein : [to Jonathon] We got a hot stiff on our hands!
