Born to Kill (1947 film) Quotes

Claire Trevor as Helen Brent

  • (Claire Trevor) "I must warn you, though, liquor makes me nosy. I've been known to ask all sorts of personal questions after four cocktails."

  • (Claire Trevor) "You're not a turnip, are you?"
  • (Claire Trevor) "Your ethics touch me deeply."
  • (Walter Slezak) "Noblesse oblige --"
  • (Claire Trevor) "You're strength, excitement, and depravity."
  • (Claire Trevor) "Little fool. You're crazy."
  • (Audrey Long) "If I am, at least I'm crazy with love for a man. All you're crazy about is money and yourself."

Elisha Cook Jr. as Marty Waterman

  • (Elisha Cook Jr.) "Don't get mad."
  • (Claire Trevor) "I am getting mad. I resent people marching into something that doesn't concern them."
  • (Elisha Cook Jr.) "You think it doesn't. It concerns me all right, if it concerns Sam."
  • (Elisha Cook Jr.) "You can't just go around killing people when the notion strikes you. It's just not feasible."

  • (Esther Howard) "How come you got a hold of this information?"
  • (Elisha Cook Jr.) "Through underworld connections, like it says in the newspapers. I'm a bad boy."
  • (Esther Howard) "You're the coldest iceberg of a woman I ever saw, and the rottenest inside. I've seen plenty, too. I wouldn't trade places with you if they sliced me into little pieces."

Walter Slezak as Albert Arnett

  • (Delivery Boy) "My that coffee smells good. Ain't it funny how coffee never tastes as good as it smells."

  • (Walter Slezak) "Has it occurred to you? Neither of us looks like a scoundrel, do we?"
  • (Walter Slezak) "In that case, I shall have to forge ahead with my inquiry. And may I remind you that Nevada courts have rather puritanical views. Why some of our more impassioned juries even insist that a man who commits murder pay with his life."

  • (Esther Howard) "It won't hurt half as much as me to lose my $500."
