Kiss Me Deadly Quotes

Ralph Meeker as Mike Hammer

  • (Ralph Meeker) "Sixty-three years, I live in one place; the house of my body. Move in when I born, move out when I die -- People, they always move. They never stand still. They move from here, from there and move, and move all the time."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "You almost wrecked my car. Well? Get in."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "You're never around when I need you."
  • (Maxine Cooper) "You never need me when I'm around."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "What's this all about? I'll make a quick guess. You were out with some guy who thought "no" was a three-letter word. I should have thrown you off that cliff back there. I might still do it. Where are ya headed?"
  • (Cloris Leachman) "Los Angeles. Drop me off at the first bus stop."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Do you always go around with no clothes on?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "An ordinary little girl gets killed and it rings bells all the way to Washington. There's gotta be a pitch -- I picked up a girl. If she hadn't gotten in my way, I wouldn't have stopped. She must be connected with somethin' big."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "We're gonna steer away from these penny-ante divorce cases for a while. I've got a line on something better. That girl I picked up was mixed up in something big."
  • (Maxine Cooper) "And a cut of something big could be something big."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "I want you to find out all you can about her."
  • (Maxine Cooper) "First, you find a little thread, the little thread leads you to a string, and the string leads you to a rope, and from the rope you hang by the neck. What kind of a girl was she, this friend of yours, Christina?"
  • (Friday) "Will you be my friend?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "What do I have to do?"
  • (Friday) "I want to be a close friend. Ask me something."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "And no matter what it is, the answer's 'yes', isn't it?"
  • (Friday) "Maybe."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Let's see how good you are at spelling. Can you spell the word "no"?"
  • (Friday) "N-O spells "no.""
  • (Ralph Meeker) "That's a good girl. Now you practice saying that. Because one of the best ways to be friendly is to know when to say no."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "They tried to get her last night."
  • (Maxine Cooper) "They? A wonderful word. And who are they? They're the nameless ones who kill people for the great whatsit. Does it exist? Who cares? Everyone everywhere is so involved in the fruitless search for what? Why don't you turn her over to Pat? It's his job to protect her, if she needs protection. Or to question her if that's what's needed. Why are you always tryin' to make a noise like a cop?"
  • (Friday) "Who are you?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Who am I? Who are you?"
  • (Friday) "I'm Friday. I'd have been named Tuesday if I'd been born on Tuesday. I'm Carl's sister, half-sister. Same mother, different father. You know, you're not like the others; Carl's friends, I mean."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Maybe that's because I'm not his friend."
  • (Friday) "Oh, wonderful. Then you can be my friend, all mine; nothing to do with Carl."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "So you're a fugitive from the laughing house."
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Okay, how much did they give you? I'll top it."
  • (Juano Hernandez) "You can't top this. They said they'd let me breathe."
  • (Unnamed) "Oh, the Jag wasn't good enough for you, huh?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Yeah, the ashtrays were all full."

Cloris Leachman as Christina Bailey

  • (Cloris Leachman) "I could tolerate flabby muscles in a man, if it'd make him more friendly. You're the kind of person who never gives in a relationship, who only takes. Ah, woman, the incomplete sex. And what does she need to complete her?"
  • (Cloris Leachman) "One man, wonderful man."
  • (Cloris Leachman) "Get me to that bus stop and forget you ever saw me. If we don't make it to the bus stop --"

  • (Cloris Leachman) "If we don't, remember me."

Albert Dekker as Dr. G.E. Soberin

  • (Albert Dekker) "Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt. Whoever opens this box will be turned into brimstone and ashes."
  • (Albert Dekker) "Lie still. Why torment yourself? Who would you see? Someone you do not know, a stranger. What is it we are seeking? Diamonds, rubies, gold? Perhaps narcotics? How civilized this earth used to be. But as the world becomes more primitive, its treasures become more fabulous. Perhaps sentiment will succeed where greed failed. You will die, Mr. Hammer. But your friend, you can save her. Yes you can. The young lady you picked up on the highway. She wrote you a letter. In it were two words, "Remember Me." She asks you to remember. What is it you must remember?"
  • (Albert Dekker) "There is something sad and melancholy about trips. I always hate to go away. But one has to find some new place or it would be impossible to be sad and melancholy again."
  • (Albert Dekker) "Listen to me, as if I were Cerberus barking with all his heads at the gates of hell. I will tell you where to take it, but don't -- don't open the box."

Paul Stewart as Carl Evello

  • (Paul Stewart) "What does matter is that your work has been interrupted, your car wrecked, your life has been ruffled, to put it mildly. If you had not stopped to pick up Christina, not any of these things would have happened. So let's pretend you did not pick her up."
  • (Paul Stewart) "Look Mike, I like you. I like the way you handle yourself. You seem like a reasonable man. Why don't we make a deal. What's it worth to you to drag your considerable talents back to the gutter you crawled out of."

Gaby Rodgers as Lily Carver

  • (Gaby Rodgers) "She was a good kid. She was lots of fun. We worked together; a couple of jobs till she got sick. That's when I noticed that she started to change. You get on a merry-go-round. You think you can get off any old time. But then it starts going too fast. She was scared. She was more and more scared. She was afraid to go out. She'd go to the movies once in a while or out for groceries but never very far. And then the police came around. They asked questions, lots of questions. Then they took her away. After all, I had a feeling someone was watching the place. Then those men came."
  • (Gaby Rodgers) "Kiss me, Mike. I want you to kiss me. Kiss me. The liar's kiss that says I love you, and means something else."

Wesley Addy as Lt. Pat Murphy

  • (Wesley Addy) "Three days ago, I was figuring I'd have to finance a new tux to bury the corpse."
  • (Wesley Addy) "Let the big slob sit there and think about his girl. What's likely to happen to her?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "I didn't know."
  • (Wesley Addy) "You didn't know. Do you think you'd have done any different if you had known?"
  • (Wesley Addy) "You're so bright working on your own, you penny-ante gumshoe. You thought you saw something big and you tried to horn in."

Maxine Cooper as Velda

  • (Maxine Cooper) "Christina Georgina Rossetti. Poetess, English, born 1830, died 1894. Your Christina was being held in that hospital for interrogation -- What's the point of all this, if it's any of my business?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "She told me if I dropped her off at the bus station, I could forget her. But if she didn't make it, she said, "Remember me.""
  • (Maxine Cooper) "So, remember her. She's dead. But I'm not dead. Hey, remember me?"
  • (Ralph Meeker) "Yeah. I remember you from somewhere."

Jack Elam as Charlie Max

  • (Jack Elam) "Women are worse than flies."
