The Cheap Detective (1978) Poster

Fernando Lamas: Paul DuChard



  • Colonel Schlissel : What a pleasant surprise, Mr. DuChard.

    Paul DuChard : So, the Black Fox and the Silver Wolf meet again, eh?

    Colonel Schlissel : And of course, you remember the Gray Rabbit and the Blue Chipmunk.

    Paul DuChard : May I present my wife Marlene.

    Colonel Schlissel : The White Swan! Of course! It is always the most courageous of men who wins the most beautiful women, but it is only the ruthless who get to keep them.

    Marlene DuChard : And it is a thousand candles that will burn for every brave soldier that marches to the steps of the drums of liberty, so that tyranny will never trample the spirit of freedom in the hearts of men, throughout a world thrown into darkness and despair.

    Colonel Schlissel : Well spoken - whatever it means. Ah, may I present Miss DeBoop, like yourselves a well-built exile?

    Betty DeBoop : Hi, honey. Don't let the Heinie get you down.

    Marlene DuChard : It is despots and tryants who run our rivers red with the colors of a hundred trampled flags that unfurl in the winds of liberty, blowing over centuries of deprivation...

    Paul DuChard : It's all right, darling, we made our point.

    Marlene DuChard : ...where men who have known treachery and treason can still light torches in the caves of honor...

  • [Marlene slaps Lou] 

    Paul DuChard : Anything wrong?

    Lou Peckinpaugh : Oh, no, no. No, it's, uh, my mistake here, uh. For a second here I thought that this young lady was a girl that I knew in France; I was wrong; the girl I know is dead.

    Paul DuChard : Oh, a natural error, monsieur. My wife has been mistaken for dead girls by many men.

  • Marlene DuChard : Paul... are you sure we ought to be here?

    Paul DuChard : There is nothing to worry about, my dear - we're in England now!

    Marlene DuChard : No, Paul. This is America.

    Paul DuChard : [looking around]  Oh yes, America.

    Marlene DuChard : We should've gone to a doctor, Paul. I'm not sure I got all that bullet out of your head.

    Paul DuChard : Oh, chérie... It doesn't matter. It's the thought that counts.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh : You can pay, of course.

    Paul DuChard : Ah, monsieur, we, we're not wealthy people. We lost over four million francs betting on the war.

    Lou Peckinpaugh : Who'd you have?

    Marcel : We took France - at eight to five.

  • Paul DuChard : You, uh, you went to his apartment that night, didn't you?

    Marlene DuChard : [slowly]  Yes. I'm sorry, Paul. How long have you known Louis and I are lovers?

    Paul DuChard : I didn't know until you told me just now. I thought you went there looking for me!

    Marlene DuChard : Yes. That's why I went there. I made up the part about us being lovers because I know you don't like me looking for you.

    Paul DuChard : Oh.
