Private eye Philip Marlowe is hired to tail a mysterious femme fatale.
`Don't call me baby, you cheap blackmailer.' `I may be a blackmailer, honey, but I'm certainly not cheap.'.
`Don't get funny with me, buster.
I get annoyed rather easy.' `Fine.
Let's watch you get annoyed.
What do you do - bite your moustache?'.
`How far would you go for five grand, Marlowe?'.
`Dear Betty, so sorry I couldn't stay dead.
Will explain tomorrow.
`Me and you could get along - if you had any brains.'.
`It had been a long day.
Perhaps if I had a rest and cleared my brain I might have some faint idea of what I was doing.'.
Do you mind if I lie down on your bed?' `Not if you take your clothes off.'.
`You called her a murderess.
That's a slander.
We'll settle for a million dollars.'.
