Quotes

  • Alfred Kralik  

    Yes, Mr. Matuschek

  • Hugo Matuschek  

    Eh, close the door. Kralik, why did you put me in that situation, in front of the whole shop?

  • Alfred Kralik  

    Well, I'm very sorry, sir... but it was not my fault.

  • Hugo Matuschek  

    Well whose fault was it? Mine?

  • Alfred Kralik  

    Well... yes.

  • Klara Novak (Miss Novak)  

    : Oh, my Dear Friend, my heart was trembling as I walked into the post office, and there you were, lying in Box 237. I took you out of your envelope and read you, read you right there.

  • Alfred Kralik  

    There might be a lot we don't know about each other. You know, people seldom go to the trouble of scratching the surface of things to find the inner truth.

  • Klara Novak (Miss Novak)  

    Well I really wouldn't care to scratch your surface, Mr. Kralik, because I know exactly what I'd find. Instead of a heart, a hand-bag. Instead of a soul, a suitcase. And instead of an intellect, a cigarette lighter... which doesn't work.

  • Alfred Kralik  

    Flora, take a letter. Ah... To whom it may concern. Mr. Vadas has been in the employ of Matuschek & Company for the last two years, during which he has been very efficient as a stool pigeon, a troublemaker, and a rat.

  • Ferenc Vadas  

    Now look here!

  • Alfred Kralik  

    And if he doesn't clear out of here he's going to get a punch in the nose! Yours very truly, Alfred Kralik, Manager, Matuschek & Company.

  • Alfred Kralik  

    Now if I were a girl and had to choose between a young good-for-nothing with plenty of hair and a good, solid, mature citizen, I'd pick Mathias Popkin every time.
