„The problem with putting two and two together is that sometimes you get four, and sometimes you get twenty-two.“ The Thin Man

„You're drunk, and I'm drunk, and I'm just exactly drunk enough to tell you anything you want to know. That's the kind of girl I am. If I like a person, I'll tell them anything they want to know. Just ask me. Go ahead, ask me.“ Red Harvest

„Who shot him? I asked.
The grey man scratched the back of his neck and said: Somebody with a gun.“

„The people who lie the most are nearly always the clumsiest at it, and they're easier to fool with lies than most people, too. You'd think they'd be on the look-out for lies, but they seem to be the very ones that will believe almost anything at all.“ The Thin Man

„My way of learning is to heave a wild and unpredictable monkey-wrench into the machinery.“ The Maltese Falcon

„He felt like somebody had taken the lid off life and let him see the works.“ The Maltese Falcon

„When a man's partner is killed he's supposed to do something about it. It doesn't make any difference what you thought of him. He was your partner and you're supposed to do something about it. Then it happens we were in the detective business. Well, when one of your organization gets killed it's bad business to let the killer get away with it. It's bad all around-bad for that one organization, bad for every detective everywhere.
Sam Spade“
The Maltese Falcon
