  • Quotes

    • O'Neill: Now remember, Sam, Mr. Anthony wants everything to go smooth.
      Hatter: Look, he didn't have to send you around here to tell me that. Now, will you beat it before Flannigan sees you hanging around the Kid?
      O'Neill: Flannigan don't know me.
      Hatter: Flannigan knows everybody.

    • Inspector: You know, when you're working on a book you're great company. Course, if I want conversation I can always talk to the goldfish.
      Ellery: Oh, that's nice.
      Inspector: On second thought, the goldfish might make more sense.

    • Ellery: Dad, your coffee's worse than mine.
      Inspector: This is your coffee. I heated up what was leftover from breakfast.
      Ellery: Well, I heated it up from last night's leftovers. And, I'm not really sure it was fresh then.

    • Inspector: What are you doing in the kitchen?
      Ellery: Oh, I just heated up some coffee.
      Inspector: I hope it's today's. Or even this week's.
