Triple Cross (1966)
Countess: [studying Chapman's criminal file] Facing 14 years further imprisonment. That interests me. For what we have in mind, I think he has possibilities.
Eddie Chapman: And for what *I* have in mind, *you* have possibilities...
Eddie Chapman: I want the German commandant!
Jersey Prison Warder: Oh, *that* again...!
Eddie Chapman: Yes, "that again"... and tell him that I *don't* like to be kept *waiting*!
Jersey Prison Warder: You're a cocky one!
Eddie Chapman: Look, if we don't push *ourselves*, no one else ever will! And let me tell you something: the more scared you are, *talk louder*! You'll get away with *murder*!
Eddie Chapman: Now go and tell the commandant I want to see him!
Eddie Chapman: I'm a realist. I'm in prison and I want to get out! I don't give a damn for Germany, or for England either. Why should I? What have they done for me lately?
Distinguished Civilian (Freddie Young): Grill him for another four hours. If he survives that I think it will be safe to let him catch the ship tomorrow night. Gentlemen, thank you for your help. You've taught me one thing: Never let the Poles take you prisoner!
Radio Announcer: Investigations disclose that at scenes of each of the recent burglaries, quantities of discarded chewing gum have been discovered, leading the authorities to believe that the crimes are the work of a band of hooligans, possibly Americans.
Baron Von Grunen: The shot that you just fired, Grauman, either broke the microphone that I believe is hidden in this room, or the eardrums of the man who was listening in. Oh, behind the paintings or the lamps, no doubt. I'm telling you all this as a warning. Mistrust everybody!
Eddie Chapman: [nonchalantly] Oh, I always have.
Baron Von Grunen: [emphatically] I mean *everybody* - without exception. Clear?... Goodnight, Franz Grauman.
B.B.C. Reporter: [at a resort hotel on the Isle of Jersey] It's BBC. Excuse me, sir. May I know your profession?
Eddie Chapman: Financier. I handle other people's money.
B.B.C. Reporter: And what made you choose Jersey for your holiday?
Eddie Chapman: [his attention begins to stray towards a beautiful blonde woman who is walking by] Well, they tell me that, uh... Friendships... ripen... quickly here.
Eddie Chapman: I'd rather live for Germany than die for England.
Countess: [during his spy training] What's so funny? Tell me.
Eddie Chapman: Oh, this whole business. Every spy is another little spy, and that little spy...
Countess: Well, of course it's a shabby business. But what did you expect? You're not training for the priesthood here. Stop complaining. The money is good.
Eddie Chapman: I haven't seen any of it yet.
Countess: Don't feel sorry for yourself. You're not the only one!
Colonel Steinhager: Don't you think you have made a dangerous little slip-up this time? Hmm? Don't you, my English friend?
Eddie Chapman: Oh, give over, Steinhager. You're getting as nutty as Keller. Must be an occupational disease... "Once a policeman, always a policeman." Is that how the saying goes?
Colonel Steinhager: Yes, and it doesn't make me angry, as you would like it to. I am proud of being a policeman, and grateful. Because we policeman have to be kept on no matter what regime is in power. Whether Germany is ruled by an emperor or communists or national socialists, the State needs policemen and the policeman now who is asking you one more question!
Baron Von Grunen: [referring to the failed assassination attempt on Hitler's life in July, 1944] When the aristocracy of the German Army cannot even blow up one single room at a given time, we deserve to lose. We're doomed.
Colonel Steinhager: Colonel von Grunen, you are under arrest.
Baron Von Grunen: [calm and calculated] I resist arrest, Steinhager.
Colonel Steinhager: [a bit taken aback] You resist arrest, sir?
Baron Von Grunen: You know what your orders are if I resist arrest. I command you to carry out your orders!
[turns his back and proceeds to slowly walk away. Steinhager hesitates to shoot von Grunen in the back, but Keller doesn't]
Colonel Steinhager: It wasn't necessary. Somebody else would have done it for us
