The Postman Always Rings Twice
Movie Quote Quiz

Cora: All I know is, it went dark... If he'd have turned around, Frank, they'd have hanged us for it... and something... something put that cop there... It's an act of God those lights went out.

Frank Chambers: What are you, uh, Greek or something?
Cora: What... do I look Greek?

Cora: He wants to have a baby... How'm I gonna do that, Frank?

Cora: I'm getting tired of what's right and wrong.
Frank Chambers: They hang people for that, Cora.

Sackett: Spit on the sidewalk and you'll die in jail.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene of the movie, on the highway, Cora (Jessica Lange) is ejected from the car Frank (Jack Nicholson) is driving, hits the ground, dies instantly after the impact, and rolls over to the shoulder of the road. Weeping, Frank kneels by her side and holds her motionless right hand with his right hand, which, of course, has no wedding ring (They had just been married.) The next and last close-up shot shows he's holding her right hand with his LEFT HAND, the wide gold wedding ring appearing now in full sight. (01:59:33)
