Tommy Chan: You're lucky to have your assistant on hand, Pop.
Charlie Chan: Assistant? That you?
Tommy Chan: Sure!
Charlie Chan: Your assistance about as welcome as water in a leaking ship!
Tommy Chan: But you've always said that two men can find a clue quicker than one.
Charlie Chan: [looking from side to side] Where is other man? Do not see other man!
Charlie Chan: [to Tommy] Next time you try this, you experience sudden collision in rear end of pants.
Charlie Chan: You talk like rooster, who thinks sun come up just to hear him crow.
Charlie Chan: You should get married and raise large family. Once you have large family, all other troubles mean nothing.
Charlie Chan: Not glad to see me, Birmingham?
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Oh, it's nothing personal, Mr. Chan, but the last time we met was in Washington, and if I can remember right, there was two or three murders.
Charlie Chan: Murder is my business.
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Murder's all right, Mr. Chan, but you wholesales it!
Charlie Chan: [to Tommy] You put two and two together and get result bigger than national debt.
Charlie Chan: [to Tommy as he looks over Charlie's shoulder] Please remove breath from back of my neck! Go away! Go away!
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Free speech is gon' get me in trouble yet.
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: How come you walkin' around? Don't you know you dead?
Charlie Chan: Bull in china shop is gentle creature compared to detective who make pass at man wearing glasses.
Charlie Chan: Three murders. All different. Dog cannot chase three rabbits at same time. Manning Case like modern highway. Sooner or later come to detour.
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Thank you for lettin' me share your private graveyard.
Charlie Chan: You are like turtle. After everything all over, you stick head out and find truth right under your very nose.
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Uh-oh. My pin-up boy again.
