Quotes

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    This signature's been tampered with. Your name isn't Denise Manderley, is it?

  • Mrs. Montenegro  

    No. It's Wanda Coleman.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    Then why does your driver's license say Gilda Dabney?

  • Mrs. Montenegro  

    I believe my life is in danger; that's why I've taken so many precautions. My real name is... Chloe Lamar.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    Well, thank you, Miss Lamar. I appreciate your honesty. Now can you tell me why you let yourself in with this passkey to search my office? What is it that you were looking for?

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    Your husband's dead a little over an hour and you're already dressed in black? How long you had that outfit waiting in the closet?

  • Georgia Merkle  

    You're wrong. I just bought it. There's an all-night widow shop at Fifth and Geary.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    Are you sure the police didn't follow you here?

  • Georgia Merkle  

    I'm positive. They came with me.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    This is definitely our last date, Georgia.

  • Lieutenant DiMaggio  

    Mind answering a few questions downtown, Lou?

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    We *are* downtown.

  • Lieutenant DiMaggio  

    Then this will be fine.

  • Lieutenant DiMaggio  

    What did you and Merkle argue about last Monday night?

  • Georgia Merkle  

    It's all right. Tell them, darling.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    Don't call me darling in front of the police with a dead husband.

  • Lou Peckinpaugh  

    Being a private eye may not be much, but we do have a code of honor. It's all right to fool around with your partner's wife, but once he's dead it makes it all so dirty. That's the way it is, angel. You marry yourself a nice guy, have a couple of swell kids. Once you're all set up and happy, maybe we can fool around again.
