      • Perry: (to Della about the mail) Anything interesting this bleak Monday morning?
        Della: Oh, this little item on top might bring you a ray of sunshine.
        Perry: Just this bare naked check?
        Della: Just that bare naked 2,500 clams.
        Perry: Della, when it's over a thousand you don't refer to them as clams. They become dollars.

      • Perry: Why, hello. This is Lieutenant Tragg of homicide. (introduces the two ladies) Mrs. Allred. Her daughter.
        Lt. Tragg: Are you Mrs. Allred's lawyer, Mason, or are you just acting as an M.C.?

      • Perry: In view of certain past accusations, Lieutenant, I'd like this instance of my cooperation with the police duly noted. Remember, I turned [the culprit] over to you.
        Lt. Tragg: Oh, would carved in stone be satisfactory, or should we etch it in bronze?
        Perry: Whichever is more expensive.

      • Della: All right, who really did kill Allred?
        Perry: Overbrook. Burger had it right the first time. I just couldn't bring myself to the point of agreeing with him. Might establish a dangerous precedent.
