Quotes

  • Eve Kendall  

    What happened with your first two marriages?

  • Roger Thornhill  

    My wives divorced me.

  • Eve Kendall  

    Why?

  • Roger Thornhill  

    They said I led a dull life.

  • Eve Kendall  

    I tipped the steward five dollars to seat you here if you should come in.

  • Roger Thornhill  

    Is that a proposition?

  • Eve Kendall  

    I never discuss love on an empty stomach.

  • Roger Thornhill  

    You've already eaten!

  • Eve Kendall  

    But you haven't.

  • Roger Thornhill  

    Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed.

  • Roger Thornhill  

    And what the devil is all this about? Why was I brought here?

  • Phillip Vandamm  

    Games, must we?

  • Roger Thornhill  

    Not that I mind a slight case of abduction now and then, but I have tickets for the theater this evening, to a show I was looking forward to and I get, well, kind of *unreasonable* about things like that.

  • Phillip Vandamm  

    With such expert playacting, you make this very room a theater.

  • Roger Thornhill  

    No. No, Mother, I have not been drinking. No. No. These two men, they poured a whole bottle of bourbon into me. No, they didn't give me a chaser.
