Quotes

[first lines]
[Mike finds his secretary doing calisthenics in his office]
Michael Shayne: Angel, what are you doing?
Phyllis Hamilton: My beauty exercises, Mike.
Michael Shayne: You don't need to do that.
Phyllis Hamilton: Oh, no? With all those dizzy blondes throwing themselves at you, I'm not taking any chances. Besides, I want you to love me when I'm old and gray.
Michael Shayne: Why should a couple of years make a difference? Anyway, I'm allergic to blondes. Can I help it if I'm irresistible?
