Dialogues from "The Big Sleep"

→ So you're a private detective. I didn't know they existed, except in books. Or else they were greasy little men snooping around hotel corridors. My, you're a mess, aren't you?

→ I'm not very tall either. Next time, I'll come on stilts, wear a white tie and carry a tennis racket.

Eddie Mars (Oliver Reed)
→ Convenient the door being open when you didn't have a key.

Philip Marlowe (Robert Mitchum)
