    • Noah: All right, Al, come on, let's hear it.
      Al: It was an attempted kidnap.
      Noah: By a blonde?
      Al: That's the best kind.

    • Noah: You'll be working with a woman. Her name is Irena Damos. She's one of ours. You'll meet her in the lobby.
      Al: She'll swoon all over me, right?
      Noah: Wrong. You carry this. She'll approach you and when she does, you ask her if this book belongs to her. She'll answer, "Yes, this is my copy of Euripides."
      Al: Sounds spicy.
      Noah: I don't know, I never read it.
      Al: Do we really have to go through with the cloak-and-dagger bit?
      Noah: We have our reasons.
      Al: Oh, fine. I stand around the lobby like some idiot, waiting for some dame to come over to me and tell me that she's lost her Euripides.
      Noah: Oh, you could do it standing on your head.
      Al: I ought to try. I'd be less conspicuous. You guys are beautiful.

    • Irena: You are frivolous!
      Al: Only when it counts.

    • Al: I've got a great idea. Why don't we drive out into the country and we could go to one of those places where they have that marvelous peasant dancing.
      Irena: Impossible. I do not dance.
      Al: What do you do?
      Irena: I work. You should try it.

    • George: Al. Well, I really am sorry to see you again. Now it looks like I'm going to have to get rough.
      Al: Now, George, don't do anything foolish. You never use guns.
      George: Yes I do! As soon as I start feeling uptight.
