    • Writer(s): John Meredyth Lucas Quote 1 ETHEL MARTEL: Mr. Orwell?... Could we talk to you? ORWELL [looking under hood of his car]: Well, I'm having trouble with my starter. MARTEL: Well, our lawyer gave us your name. ORWELL: Ya know anything about cars? MARTEL: He said we should hire a private detective. ORWELL: Why? MARTEL: That doctor killed my son-in-law. ORWELL: What doctor? MARTEL: Dr. Lusk. ORWELL: He know anything about cars? MARTEL [now disconcerted]: Oh… uh… this is my daughter, Mrs. Ross. ORWELL: Oh… uh… yeah. I gotta call the garage. You wanta come inside? [Heads towards his beach cottage.] MARTEL [to her daughter]: I wonder if he's the right man for the job? Quote 2 SPENCER [picking up phone]: Spencer's garage. ORWELL: Yeah… uh, hi…I can't get it started again. SPENCER: Yeah…who told you that it was gonna happen? ORWELL: Yeah, I know, but I need you to come over and pick it up. SPENCER: Harry, I don't make house calls. And I got work stacked up to here. ORWELL: I know, Spence, but if you come over just this one time, I'll be forever in your debt. SPENCER: You already are. Quote 3 ORWELL: ...We don't want this debt to accumulate, do we?... Spencer, I'll pay you...I promise to pay you. JOHNSON: That's what they're gonna put on my tombstone: "I PROMISE TO PAY YOU, SPENCE." Quote 4 ORWELL: ...What if he's guilty of malpractice? TRENCH: Orwell, this is the police department. Not the Bureau of Medical Examiners! ORWELL: Well, that's a simple mistake to the casual observer. Quote 5 TRENCH: Orwell...just as if you were invited.... How is it that you always manage to arrive at the most inconvenient time? ORWELL: Oh...I practice a lot. Is that food? May I? [Orwell appropriates Trench's sandwich without waiting for a reply.] TRENCH: Is there a purpose to this visit, Orwell, or are you here just to commandeer my dinner?.... ORWELL: ...Listen, I went to Tucson. It's a nice little flight if you eat first. TRENCH: You're making up for it now...What about Dr. Lusk? ORWELL: Dr. Lusk had a malpractice suit filed against him and the charges were dropped, but it was enough to make him leave the hospital.... TRENCH: What was it like? ORWELL: [What're you talking about?] TRENCH: My dinner. ORWELL: It's not bad, not bad. Where did you get it? TRENCH: The delicatessen, at the corner. You should go there when you get hungry. They'll serve anyone! ORWELL: Hey...you don't have to get hot about it. I didn't drink any coffee. TRENCH: We are out [of coffee]!! ORWELL: Oh yeah. Quote 6 SPENCER: ...Here's your car, Harry. And it starts. Now all I want is the keys to my car and $38 for the rebuilt starter. ORWELL: Yeah, well, the keys are under the mat. Put the 38 bucks on my account, will ya?...I'll have to owe you for the whole thing. SPENCER: That's what they're gonna put on my tombstone: "HERE LIES THE MAN THAT HARRY ORWELL OWES." Quote 7 ROBERTS: Lieutenant, here's the information you requested from the FBI. TRENCH: Aha...It's interesting...I had a hunch... ORWELL: I have hunches. You don't have hunches. TRENCH: I know. It's contagious... Quote 8 TRENCH: As far as the FBI's concerned, Francis Ross retired. ORWELL: Forced retirement... TRENCH: No, he retired. Besides, he found a "Shunammite maiden." That, Orwell, is a Biblical reference. As you remember, King David... ORWELL: Her name was Abishag. My mother made me go to Sunday school. TRENCH: Make a note of that, Roberts. Quote 9 ORWELL: Nobody can blame him for wanting to have a good time in his old age.... TRENCH: Orwell, have you noticed men like Rosenman never live long enough to enjoy their retirement benefits. Quote 10 ORWELL [voiceover]: How do you itemize $237.10? Well, that's the price they charged me for the [grave]stone and to carve: "HERE LIES A MAN HARRY ORWELL OWES."
