Night People (1954)
Walter Abel: Maj. R.A. Foster, MD
Col. Steve Van Dyke : [just before leaving the hospital to pursue a lead with the hostage situation] You stay here Leatherby, I'll be right back.
Charles Leatherby : Colonel...
Col. Steve Van Dyke : Yeah?
Charles Leatherby : I think I'll go back to my hotel.
Col. Steve Van Dyke : Oh you do?
Charles Leatherby : Well I'm not needed here, so I'll go back to my room and wait there.
Col. Steve Van Dyke : Choked up huh?
Charles Leatherby : That's not it at all.
Col. Steve Van Dyke : What's the idea of buggin' out?
Charles Leatherby : Well I'm not needed here so I thought I'd...
Col. Steve Van Dyke : You want your boy back don't you?
Charles Leatherby : You know I do.
Col. Steve Van Dyke : Then you're not goin' anywhere. You're gonna stay right here where you can see what it takes to get him back. Is that asking too much?
Charles Leatherby : No, of course not. But I just thought I might as well.
Col. Steve Van Dyke : Yeah I know, you were only thinkin' it was ok for us to play it dirty, but you don't even want to have to *look* at it. Well you shoulda thought of that before you left Toledo. Look Mr. Leatherby, I want you here when I get back, you understand?
Col. Steve Van Dyke : Right here, where you can see where all of those big fat taxes of yours go for.
[he briskly leaves]
Maj. R.A. Foster, MD : I used to think that guy was a little crazy, but I've changed my mind about that: he's *big* crazy.
