  • Quotes

    • Paul: Just where do you go to look for something you hope is destroyed?
      Perry: That's easy--you make it an essential part of the District Attorney's case. Then he has to produce it.

    • Perry: I'd love to help, Eileen. If only because you were the first woman who ever proposed to me. It was on her father's farm in Oregon. She was seven at the time.
      Eileen: I was not. I was 8-1/2 and you turned me down.
      Della: He probably thought you were too old for him!

    • Eileen Harrison: I'm tired of hearing all the clichés about how everything will turn out all right.

    • Luke Hickey: Yeah,but he didn't kill that crumb.
      Perry: I believe that but we can't prove it with lies.

    • Paul: You know what gets me?
      Della: Why Perry doesn't have you arrested for grand larceny?

    • Della: Any more questions?
      Paul: Yeah. The way I see it, Perry doesn't stand to make a dime in this case. After all, the Harrisons can't afford to pay him. How can he afford to pay me?
      Perry: That's a very good question, Paul. Come to think of it, I can't. (rips up Paul's check)
