Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
Raymond Massey: Jonathan Brewster
[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!
Jonathan Brewster : [to Dr. Einstein] This is the home of my youth... As a boy, I couldn't wait to escape from this house. Now, I'm glad to escape back into it.
Jonathan Brewster : Teddy, I think it's time for you to go to bed.
Teddy Brewster : I beg your pardon. Who are you?
Jonathan Brewster : I'm Woodrow Wilson. Go to bed!
Teddy Brewster : No, you're not Wilson, but you're face is familiar. Let me see. You're not anyone I know now - perhaps later on my hunting trip to Africa. Yes, you look like someone I might meet in the jungle.
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!
Jonathan Brewster : [to Aunt Abby and Aunt Martha] Dr. Einstein and I need a place to sleep. You remember that, as a boy, I could be disagreeable. It would not be pleasant for any of us if... I don't have to go into details, do I?
Jonathan Brewster : Perhaps we'd better introduce ourselves. May I present Dr. Einstein.
Elaine Harper : Dr. Einstein?
Jonathan Brewster : A surgeon of great distinction... and something of a magician.
Elaine Harper : Now, I suppose you're going to tell me that you're Boris Kar...
Jonathan Brewster : I am Jonathan Brewster!
Jonathan Brewster : Go to bed, Aunt Abby!
Jonathan Brewster : [to Dr. Einstein] This time, I want the face of an absolute non-enity!
Jonathan Brewster : I'll get every one of you! I hate cops! I'll brain the first one that comes near me!
Jonathan Brewster : [to Dr. Einstein] To my dear dead brother.
