[to Joanne] Look at that face. Is that a face for a magazine cover? The profile. You're beautiful, and I love you. I sleep with a lot of women; I make love to you. The single most important person in my life, next to my family. Is that right, Pepe? Huh? [smashes a coke bottle on her face] Get her out of here! [to Marlowe] Now, that's someone I love! And you I don't even like! You got an assignment, cheapie: find my money!
[on Dr. Verringer to party guests as Verrigner stands before him] You know, this son of a bitch - let me tell you one thing about this bastard. He is the epitome of what's wrong - with this world - he really is actually, 'cause he pretends to cure people. Can you cure people?
Roger Wade: Do you ever think about suicide, Marlboro?
Philip Marlowe: Me, I don't believe in it.
Marty Augustine: Your friend was a murderer and a thief.
Philip Marlowe: That's a lie. I know he didn't kill her.
Marty Augustine: Let me tell you something else. It's a minor crime, to kill your wife. The major crime is that he stole my money. Your friend stole my money, and the penalty for that is capital punishment.
[Augustine has found a $5000 bill in Marlowe's pocket]
