  • Quotes

    • Claire (to Porter): The club rules say the pros should not associate with the members.

    • Banyon: All of a sudden, Claire Boyer was back from the past. On the way to meet her, I kept bumping into memories.

    • Claire: Same old Miles.
      Banyon: Same older Miles.
      Claire: Same older Claire.

    • Claire: He was in the stands once.
      Banyon: Who?

      Banyon: Give him one of your good backhands?
      Claire: I just left.

    • Porter: This is a private club.
      Banyon: What are you--the night watchman?
      Porter: I'm chairman of the membership committee.
      Banyon: Fine. Don't send me an application.

    • Banyon: I'd taken a few rides before but this was the first I'd taken in a taxi--that I hired.

    • Banyon: Dumont--was he one of the Three Musketeers?
      Lopaca (slugs Banyon in stomach): They were chivalrous. We are not.

    • Jill: The phone rang. I took the liberty of answering it.
      Banyon: Baby, that's not a liberty. That's the reason you're here.

    • McNeil (to Banyon and Gomez): You two can straighten this out with judges and lawyers.

    • McNeil: We weren't born yesterday.
      Banyon: You're givin' a pretty good imitation.

    • Banyon: Pete, don't you find it a little comical that everybody who comes after me wants to have me arrested?

    • Banyon (to Lopaca): Congratulations on your fast recovery. On the other hand, maybe you won't have time to enjoy it.

    • Banyon: Suddenly it was Miles Banyon Day on the Los Angeles Police Department. My name was on every patrol car and my measurements were more popular than Miss America's.

    • McNeil (to Banyon): I don't believe it. One day. Just one day. You've become a one man crime wave.
