Laura: Nitroglycerine tablets. I found them in the oil truck.
Mildred: Those are for heart conditions. My ex husband used them. That's how I discovered he had a heart.
Steele: You can't out swim a motorboat.
Steele: Moonlight is romantic but it's hell to read by.
Steele: Never let principle interfere with money.
Mrs. Dumont: Aren't you two taking a terrible professional risk? I mean, what's it called? Withholding evidence?
Steele: Let's call that mislaying? Milder penalty.
Laura: (expecting another obscene phone call) Now listen, I've had all the disgusting propositions I'm going to...
Steele: Laura, I haven't made you a disgusting proposition in ages.
Steele: This town is a veritable Peyton Place. Lana Turner, Lee Phillips, Twentieth Century Fox, 1957.
