The Spy who came from the Cold, 1965

"I'm a man, you fool. Don't you understand? A plain, simple, muddled, fat-headed human being ... I reserve the right to be ignorant. That's the Western way of life."

"What the hell do you think spies are? Moral philosophers measuring everything they do against the word of God or Karl Marx? 
They're not! They're just a bunch of seedy, squalid bastards like me: little men, drunkards, queers, hen-pecked husbands, civil servants playing cowboys and Indians to brighten their rotten little lives. Do you think they sit like monks in a cell, balancing right against wrong?"



A Single Man, 2009

"Looking in the mirror staring back at me isn't so much a face, as the expression of a predicament. "



Performance, 1970

"Turner: Nothing is true, everything is permitted."



Desk Set, 1957

"Bunny Watson: Have some tequila, Peg.
Peg Costello: I don't think I should. There are 85 calories in a glass of champagne.
Bunny Watson: I have a little place in my neighborhood where I can get it for 65."

"Peg: Certainly. How does champagne go with Four Roses, Scotch, Martinis, and Bloody Marys?
Bunny: Oh, fine. They're all the same base: alcohol."

"Bunny: I don't smoke. I only drink champagne when I'm lucky enough to get it. My hair is naturally natural.
Richard Sumner: You don't say."



The Apartment, 1960

"Fran Kubelik: I never catch colds.

C.C. Baxter: Really? I was reading some figures from the Sickness and Accident Claims Division. You know that the average New Yorker between the ages of twenty and fifty has two and a half colds a year?
Fran: That makes me feel just terrible.
Baxter: Why?
Fran: Well, to make the figures come out even, if I have no colds a year, some poor slob must have five colds a year.
Baxter: Yeah... it's me."

"Fran: I wouldn't be too sure. Just because I wear a uniform, that doesn't make me a Girl Scout.
Baxter: Miss Kubelik, one doesn't get to be a second administrative assistant around here unless he's a pretty good judge of character, and as far as I'm concerned, you're tops, I mean, decency-wise, and otherwise-wise."

"Art has always had a great impact on my approach to my work... The movies are there forever, there is no interference, once the movie is finished it's a done deal."

Beat the Devil, 1953

"Time. Time. What is time? Swiss manufacture it. French hoard it. Italians squander it. Americans say it is money. Hindus say it does not exist. Do you know what I say? I say time is a crook."

Julius O'Hara (played masterfully by Peter Lorre)
