    • Esther: Lamont, the truth is not a toy. You cannot play with the truth. The truth is hard, firm, ragged rock, which is as old as the world itself.
      Grady: The truth reminds me a lot of you, Esther.

    • Esther: You hear anything from Fred?
      Grady: Well, yeah. He said he was enjoying himself with his family.
      Esther: Did he send any regards?
      Grady: Well, sort of. He said that he had visited the St. Louis Zoo.
      Esther: Watch it, Grady.
      Grady: And he was having a wonderful time.
      Esther: Yeah.
      Grady: And he wished that I was there.
      Esther: Be careful.
      Grady: And was sure you already were!
      Esther: That did it!

    • Lamont: Grady, Herman is not a killer. Grady: Well, how come he went to prison? Lamont: Because of circumstantial evidence,he just happened to be at the scene of a crime. Grady: Oh, you just 'happened' to be at the scene of a crime? What were you doing there? Herman: Committing it. Grady:Oh, that's 'circumstantial evidence, alright!

    • Grady: I've got two big ones riding on it! (Herman returns with a brand-new portable radio) Wh-what took you so long? You must be out of practice!
      Herman: Oh, no, man; I didn't want to break in and steal Julio's radio.
      Grady: Well, where did you get it from?
      Herman: Martel's Appliance Store.
      Grady: Martel's? Are you crazy? Stealing a radio from Martel's when they got color televisions? You know, I dislike a thief, but I hate the dumb ones!

    • Grady: Oh, hello there Lester!
      Aunt Esther: ESTHER...No L!
      Grady: Well, Noel and Merry Christmas to you!

    • Herman (Explaining what happened when Esther, his employer, found out he was an ex-con): She raised her hands toward heaven and said, "The truth shall set you free!" And then she opened the door and freed me!
