Add your favourite film noir quotes here. Once we've exhausted the noir genre, I'll change the Topic Description to something else - probably comedy. A good place to start a discussion on noir is Double Indemnity.

Double Indemnity (1944)
[last lines]
Walter Neff: Know why you couldn't figure this one, Keyes? I'll tell ya. 'Cause the guy you were looking for was too close. Right across the desk from ya.
Barton Keyes: Closer than that, Walter.
Walter Neff: I love you, too.

Kind of reminds me of another classic noir's closing:
[last lines]
Rick: Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship

Out of the Past (1947)

Jeff Bailey: Just get out, will you? I have to sleep in this room.

The Big Sleep (1946)
Vivian: I don't like your manners.
Marlowe: And I'm not crazy about yours. I didn't ask to see you. I don't mind if you don't like my manners, I don't like them myself. They are pretty bad. I grieve over them on long winter evenings. I don't mind your ritzing me drinking your lunch out of a bottle. But don't waste your time trying to cross-examine me.

Detour (1945)
Al Roberts: That's life. Whichever way you turn, Fate sticks out a foot to trip you.

The Killers (1946)
Jim Reardon: How well did you know the Swede?
Charleston: Me? Mister, I guess me and the Swede were about as close as two guys can get. For nearly two years we weren't more than eight and a half feet apart. That's how big the cell was.

Keep on adding them. Wonderful, am reviving all my memories of those scenes. Great beginning, nothing so luscious as the dark, fatalistic dialogues of those noirs...

The Lady from Shanghai (1945)


Arthur Bannister: So money doesn't interest you, are you independently wealthy?
Michael O'Hara: I'm independent.
Arthur Bannister: Of money?


Arthur Bannister: You've been traveling around the world too much to find out anything about it.

Arthur Bannister: Killing you is killing myself. But, you know, I'm pretty tired of both of us.




"This isn't right, this isn't even wrong."
Wolfgang Pauli (1900-1958)

"There are no facts, only interpretations."
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

The Third Man (1949)
Harry Lime: Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. So long Holly.

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. Look down there. 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?

Sweet Smell of Success (1957)
Otis Elwell: I can't think of a good reason why I should print anything you give me. I can't even think of a *bad* reason.
Sidney Falco: [eyeing a pin-up] Suppose I introduce you to a... a lovely reason... who's both good *and* bad... and available?
Otis Elwell: [pauses] I'm not an unreasonable man.

Now we're onto war. The most interesting, and foul-mouthed character in any war film had to be Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann from Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket. Here are a few choice abuses he heaped on new recruits - these quotes are all taken from the first 20 minutes of the film.

Full Metal Jacket (1987) (warning: full of expletives toned down with "*")
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: MOVE IT! Or I'm going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: [Hartman gives a speech to the graduating recruits] Today, you people are no longer maggots. Today, you are Marines. You're part of a brotherhood. From now on until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietnam. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Marines die. That's what we're here for. But the Marine Corp lives forever. And that means YOU live forever.

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: I'm Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor, from now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and the last word out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir". Do you maggots understand that?
[recruits answers:] Sir. Yes Sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Bullsh*t I can't hear you. Sound off like you got a pair!
[recruits repeats with a louder tone]
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human, f*ck*ng beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian Sh*t. Because I am hard you will not like me. But the more you hate me the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: How tall are you, private?
Private Cowboy: Sir, five-foot-nine, sir.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Five-foot-nine, I didn't know they stacked sh*t that high.

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Were you born a fat, slimy, scumbag puke piece o' sh*t, Private Pyle, or did you have to work on it?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Oh that's right, Private Pyle, don't make any f*ck*ng effort to get to the top of the f*ck*ng obstacle. If God would have wanted you up there he would have miracled your *ss up there by now, wouldn't he?
