To Have and Have Not (1944) Poster

Lauren Bacall: Marie 'Slim' Browning



  • Slim : You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow.

  • Slim : Who was the girl, Steve?

    Steve : Who was what girl?

    Slim : The one who left you with such a high opinion of women.

  • [Slim kisses Steve] 

    Steve : What did you do that for?

    Slim : I've been wondering if I'd like it.

    Steve : What's the decision?

    Slim : I don't know yet.

    [They kiss again] 

    Slim : It's even better when you help.

  • Slim : What are you trying to do, guess her weight?

    Steve : She's heftier that you think.

    [lays down fainted woman he has been carrying] 

    Steve : Better loosen her clothes.

    Slim : You've been doing all right.

    [stops him from loosening clothes] 

    Slim : Maybe you'd better look after her husband.

    Steve : He's not going to run out on me.

    Slim : Neither is she.

  • Slim : You know Steve, you're not very hard to figure, only at times. Sometimes I know exactly what you're going to say. Most of the time. The other times... the other times, you're just a stinker.

  • Slim : I'm hard to get, Steve. All you have to do is ask me.

    Steve : You know what you're getting into. It's gonna be rough.

  • Slim : Give her my love.

    Steve : I'd give her my own if she had that on!

  • [last lines] 

    Slim : Cricket. I came to say good-bye.

    Cricket : What?

    Slim : We're leaving now. Thanks for everything.

    Cricket : Hey Slim, are you still happy?

    Slim : What do you think?

  • Steve : Anybody got a match?

    Slim : Change your mind?

    Steve : No money, those guys cleaned me out.

    Slim : I forgot too - maybe I can do something, its been a long day and I'm thirsty.

    [surveys club patrons] 

    Steve : Picked him out yet?

    Slim : You don't mind do you?

    Steve : You're thirsty, go ahead. If I get tired of waiting, I'll be back at that hotel.

    Slim : All right

    [starts moving through tables] 

  • Eddie : Was you ever bit by a dead bee?

    Slim : Were you?

    Eddie : You know, you got to be careful of dead bees if you're goin' around barefooted, 'cause if you step on them they can sting you just as bad as if they was alive, especially if they was kind of mad when they got killed. I bet I been bit a hundred times that way.

    Slim : You have? Why don't you bite them back?

    Eddie : That's what Harry always says. But I ain't got no stinger.
