Hildegarde Withers: [Surprised by Oscar's sudden surprising appearance on Catalina by sneaking up behind her] Oscar Piper!
Oscar Piper: Little moments from the lives of great detectives - Hildegarde, ya get screwier every day.
Hildegarde Withers: Come all the way from New York just to be stupid in new surroundings?
Oscar Piper: Well, where's the corpse?
Hildegarde Withers: [Faking befuddlement] Now let me see - what did I do with that corpse? Oh, the police station! Come on, Oscar!
Oscar Piper: Just a minute, it'll keep until after lunch, won't it?
Hildegarde Withers: Well, I hope so.
Oscar Piper: I never look at a corpse on an empty stomach. Com'on.
Hildegarde Withers: Hmmmm.
Dr. O'Rourke: [to Hildegarde and Oscar] That body was here when I came in at one o'clock this morning. Someone must have stolen it.
Oscar Piper: [Sarcastically] I meant to tell yuh, Hildegarde. One of the first things to remember about handling a murder case is always keep in touch with your corpse.
Hildegarde Withers: [to the dog Mr. Jones, who has helped Hildegarde find a clue] If there is any justice, you should have a kennel and a tree in the heart of Scotland Yard.
Hildegarde Withers: [after the doctor, who has just come from the beach in an old-fashioned swimsuit, says it's a natural death] Are you quite capable of judging?
Dr. O'Rourke: Well, I ought to be - I am a doctor!
Hildegarde Withers: Well, I took you for a lifeguard.
Dr. O'Rourke: [With indignance] I gave him a very thorough examination.
Hildegarde Withers: [Sarcastically] I can imagine!
Dr. O'Rourke: I resent your attitude, madame!
Hildegarde Withers: [Remarking on his bizarre bathing suit] Don't try to be impressive in that drape, young man. You can't frighten me until you put on your trousers.
