    • Hey Boy: Mr. Wilde very famous?
      Paladin: He's a famous Englishman; celebrated for his wise and witty sayings.
      Workman: (Gathering his tools) Excuse me.
      Paladin: That's quite all right.
      Hey Boy: Eh, like what?
      Paladin: Well, for example, he once said "There are only two tragedies in this world. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
      Hey Boy: Confucius also say that.

    • Hey Boy: You have good vacation? Paladin: Too good, Hey Boy. All play and no work makes Paladin a poor boy.

    • (Paladin easily demonstrates his superiority over the trio of gunmen) Paladin: As you see, Colonel Carrington. Quantity is never a worthy substitute for quality.

    • Oscar Wilde: Have you paid the ransom? Paladin: In a manner of speaking. I wanted to be sure you hadn't been harmed first. Oscar Wilde: No, I'm much too valuable a piece of merchandise for that. Damaged goods have to be sold at a discount, you know. Oh, the gall of that man Rook. Do you know he wanted to ask only 10,000 for me? And in dollars, not even pounds sterling! Can you imagine the insult if that got out. A measly 10,000 for Oscar Wilde! Naturally I insisted it be raised to 50,000.

    • Oscar Wilde: Murder's such a messy business. One should never do anything which he cannot discuss after dinner.
