Sterling Silver Dialogue From The Movies: 


Do you know where they're from?

Special Film Noir Edition








"You know how it is, early in the morning, on the water. Everything’s quiet, except for the seagulls, a long way off. And you feel great. Then you come ashore, and it starts. And in no time at all, you’re up to your ears in trouble. And you don’t know where it began."



"You ever been locked up?"

(response) "Not the way you mean."

(reply) "I don't care what way it is. Some people can stand it and some people can't. The ones who can't would kill themselves and anybody else just to get out for five minutes."


"You don't think very much of people, do you?"

(response) "I don't think very much of anything."



"In this world, you turn the other cheek and you get hit with a lug wrench."



"Don’t ever change Tiger. I don’t think I’d like you with a heart."



"She looked like a very special kind of dynamite, neatly wrapped in nylon and silk. Only I wasn't having any. I'd been too close to one explosion already. I was powder shy."



"It's too bad Nick took the car."

(response) "Even if it was here we couldn't take it, unless we'd want to spend the night in jail. Stealing a man's wife, that's nothing... but stealing a man's car, that's larceny."



"I don't like this place."

(response) "It's a good spot. I used to come here with my girl when I was a kid. It's more frightening than romantic. It's the way love is when you're young... life is when you're older."



"What’s happened to business, anyway? Got nothin’ to do but sit here dopin’ the horses. How do you like Killie in the 7th?"

(response) "Eh, she’ll still be runnin’ when they start the 8th."



"Oh, your breakfast is on the table, darling."

(response) "Where else would it be?"



"They tried to get her last night."

(response) "They? A wonderful word. And who are they? They're the nameless ones who kill people for the great whatsit. Does it exist? Who cares? Everyone everywhere is so involved in the fruitless search for what? Why don't you turn her over to Pat? It's his job to protect her, if she needs protection. Or to question her if that's what's needed. Why are you always tryin' to make a noise like a cop?"



"I never met Parry... but I know psychologically he's no killer. He was just dumb.

(response) "What makes you think you're so smart. All you know is T-squares and drafting boards and not even much about them or anything else!"

(reply) "We've been through all of that before! A couple of hundred thousand times. A couple of hundred thousand years ago when I was a monkey and thought I wanted to marry you."



(To the partygoers) "Seems I've lost my manners or would anyone here know the difference?"



"What do you know about anything? You probably had your bread buttered on both sides since the day you were born. Safe. Safe on first, second, third, and home."



"You're dead, son. Get yourself buried."

"Don't remove the gangplank, Sidney, you may wanna get back onboard."

"The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river."
