  • Jerry Prokosch  

    Whenever I hear the word culture, I bring out my checkbook. (To his assistant) Come here. (He places his checkbook on his assistant's back and writes out a check.)

  • Lang, Fritz  

    Some years ago -- some horrible years ago -- the Nazis used to take out a pistol instead of a checkbook.

  • Jerry Prokosch  

    I like gods. I like them very much. I know exactly how they feel - exactly.

  • Fritz Lang  

    Jerry, don't forget. The gods have not created man. Man has created gods.

  • Camille Javal  

    You like all of me? My mouth? My eyes? My nose? And my ears?

  • Paul Javal  

    Yes, all of you.

  • Camille Javal  

    Then you love me... totally?

  • Paul Javal  

    Yes. Totally... tenderly... tragically.

  • Jerry Prokosch  

    To know that one does not know, is the gift of a superior spirit. Not to know and to think that one does know, is a mistake. To know that this is a mistake, keeps one from making it. I have the knowledge here.

  • Paul Javal  

    I like cinemascope very much.

  • Fritz Lang  

    Oh, it wasn't meant for human beings. Just for snakes... and funerals.
