Thorndyke: Good evening.
Tennessee Steinmetz: Sorry, the other rats are out for the evening.

Jim Douglas: Without a real car, I'm only half a man.

Havershaw: Here it comes again, sir.
Thorndyke: Havershaw, I'm not a cowardly man. But, I am beginning to sense, and that thing is out to get me.
Havershaw: Now, now. None of that, sir. We're not losing our nerve, are we?
Thorndyke: Blast you, Havershaw! How dare you patronize me! I am not losing my nerve.
Havershaw: No, sir. No, sir, of course not. No, no.
