  • Calloway  

    You don't know what you're mixing in. Why don't you catch the next plane?

  • Martins  

    I'll catch the next plane as soon as I get to the bottom of this.

  • Calloway  

    Death's at the bottom of everything, Martins. Leave death to the professionals.

  • Martins  

    You mind if I use that line in my next Western?

  • Martins  


  • Calloway  

    Calloway, not Callahan. I'm English, not Irish.

  • Martins  

    Have you ever seen any of your victims?

  • Harry Lime  

    You know, I never feel comfortable on these sort of things. Victims? Don't be melodramatic. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money? Or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax - the only way you can save money nowadays.

  • Popescue  

    She ought to go careful. Everyone ought to go careful in a city like this.

  • Martins  

    I guess nobody really knew Harry like he did... like I did. He was the best friend I ever had.

  • Calloway  

    That sounds like a cheap novelette.

  • Martins  

    Well, I write cheap novelettes.

    Harry Lime..............Orson Welles
    In Italy, for 30 years under the borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed - but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Reniassance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love...they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? - The cuckoo clock.
