4. The Big Sleep: “Let me do the talking, angel. I don’t know yet what I’m going to tell them. It’ll be pretty close to the truth.”

5. The African Queen: “Dear Lord, we’ve come to the end of our journey, and in a little while we’ll stand before you. I pray for you to be merciful. Judge us not for our weaknesses, but for our love and open the doors of heaven for Charlie and me.”

6. The Maltese Falcon: “Don’t be too sure I’m as crooked as I’m supposed to be.”

7. Key Largo: “When your head says one thing and your whole life says another, your head always loses.”

8. High Sierra: “When I need help, I need it bad, and I’m willing to pay for it.”

9. The Caine Mutiny: “Aboard my ship, excellent performance is standard, standard performance is sub-standard, and sub-standard performance is not permitted to exist – that, I warn you.”
