Detective Sergeant Gahagan: Quit kidding, Torchy. You ain't no lady. You're a reporter.

Det. Lt. Steve 'Mac' McBride: Let's go into the other room so I can think.

Torchy Blane: With what?

Torchy Blane: [to Steve] What are you, a mouse or a detective?

Det. Lt. Steve 'Mac' McBride: [to Torchy] Are you trying to be sentimental in a cemetary? There's a time and a place for everything. Now keep quiet!

Det. Lt. Steve 'Mac' McBride: I've got an idea.

Torchy Blane: Give it to me. I'll sew a button on it.

Det. Lt. Steve 'Mac' McBride: What?

Torchy Blane: I said you'd better get working on it.
