    • QUOTES (4)

      • Wolfe: Your presence here, Miss Eades, is preposterous. This is neither a rooming house nor an asylum for hysterical women. It is my office -
        Priscilla Eades: I am not hysterical!
        Wolfe: Very well. I withdraw it. It is not an asylum for unhysterical women.

      • (To Archie)
        Wolfe: The subtlety of a rhinocerous.

      • (About the guest in Wolfe's house)
        Archie: Oh, she seems sweet, and unspoiled, and has fine legs, and if we like her and get used to her, one of us might want to marry her.

      • (Wolfe is writing checks and is in a bad mood)
        Archie: What's the matter? You got bugs in the orchids?
        Wolfe: No, but I saw your bag in the hall and I note your finery, straining as you are to be gone. It is gracious of you to wait for this pittance, this meager return for your excessive labors. Especially since the bank balance is the lowest it's been in two years!
        Archie: Well that deserves an answer; here it is. As for finery, I am headed to the country for the weekend and I am dressed accordingly.
        Wolfe: Lovely.
        Archie: As for straining, I am not. As for pittance...
        (Archie examines the check with a magnifying glass)
        Archie: Yes, you're right. As for bank balance, you have a point; I'm willing to help. After all, it's just a pittance anyway so...
        (Archie tears up the check)
        Wolfe: Archie!
        Archie: Yes?
        Wolfe: Pfui!
        Archie: Nuts!
