      • Larry: Hey, when are we going to take that fishing trip?
        Barney: At your convenience.
        Larry: At my convenience? You know, for an engineer, you sure get around a lot.
        Barney: I do do that, big brother.

      • Barney: im, before we go any further, I have to say this again. I have no right to get you involved in my personal problem.
        Paris: Barney, you're wasting time.
        Dana: That's right.
        Willy: Why do you think we're here?
        Barney: Thanks.

      • Corley: May I ask what you do for a living, Mr. Morgan?
        Barney: Well, Mr. Corley, right now I'm between jobs.
        Corley: Are you in need of money?
        Barney: Not unless you call $4 money.

      • Millie: Right on time.
        Barney: You're ready. That's very unladylike.
        Millie: I must have gone to the wrong finishing school, sorry.

      • Millie: I suppose you'd rather see whitey get it all.

        Millie: You must have had some wild dental bills.

      • Jim: Hold it, Corley. Scanlon wants to talk to you.

      • Barney: Millie, listen to me. Listen to me. My name is not Cliff Morgan. It's Barney Collier. Collier. Does that name mean anything to you?
        Millie: That newspaper man?
        Barney: That's right! He was my brother and they killed him. Hamp, Corley, and Abbot blew him to pieces. Yes I set you up! I would have set up the Joan of Arc to even the score for my brother. But it... it doesn't even the score and that's the toughest part of it.
