Night Watch (1973 film) Quotes

Elizabeth Taylor as Ellen Wheeler

  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "Mr. Appleby, what on Earth have you been doing over there all the time?"
  • (Robert Lang) "I've been preparing a bed for some new friends of mine. There's no substitute for preparation. You can't just stick things in the ground and expect them to grow. This soil is poisoned. That damned obscenity of a house takes so much of our sunshine away you're lucky to get anything to grow."
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "Inspector Walker? Why didn't you come? Yes -- I know. I have something to tell -- Yes -- I'm leaving in a few minutes. Inspector -- there are two dead bodies in that old building. A man and a woman sitting side by side with their throats -- cut. Yes, I know -- but you must believe me this time. Won't you inspect that house just once more? Well -- then send someone else over --"
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "Heh, I always thought you would say that."
  • (Robert Lang) "Bravo. Bravo. Superb. Superb performance. Well -- that's it then. Your plan complete in every last detail. Pity you also had to include my Burhams."
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "Sorry about that."

Bill Dean as Inspector Walker

  • (Bill Dean) "When did you plant these trees, Mr. Appleby?"
  • (Robert Lang) "Odd question. Last night. Best time to plant is after a rainstorm. The leaves are cool, soil is saturated, the enzymes are active. I planted them just after you left."
  • (Bill Dean) "You knew we were here?"
  • (Robert Lang) "Oh, yes. I wondered what was going on. Do you know anything about trees, Inspector?"
  • (Bill Dean) "No, as a matter of fact I don't."
  • (Robert Lang) "These are the Burham Abdumai. Graph hybrid. Produces the colors of two species. Extraordinary."
  • (Bill Dean) "Do you often stay up all night, Mr. Appleby?"
  • (Robert Lang) "Yes. Sometimes all night. Sometimes all day. Living alone has it's perks. My late wife used to say that --"
  • (Bill Dean) "Do you mind if we ask you to dig these trees up?"
  • (Robert Lang) "I certainly would, not even for Mrs. Wheeler's piece of mind. You can have a dog look at them. Sniff at them. It would serve the same purpose."
  • (Bill Dean) "Not quite."
  • (Robert Lang) "You would need a court order. And I would do my best to make it extremely difficult for you."

Robert Lang as Appleby

  • (Robert Lang) "How nicely you've done the house. Did you know this was three rooms when I was a child? Beautiful, quite beautiful. I do love Indian art. Erotic, violent -- your inspiration for this whole scheme, I assume. So charming. Oh -- will you be away long?"
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "At the moment, that seems to depend on -- you Mr. Appleby."
  • (Robert Lang) "Oh, Mrs. Wheeler -- Inspector Walker wouldn't believe me either. But I do admire you. How many "abandoned wives", or cockhols for that matter, would have had your courage to pull off what you did? I myself, did nothing."
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "It's a great favor to ask you, but since you are so fond of this house --"
  • (Robert Lang) "Yes?"
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "Would it be possible for you to take care of it while I'm away?"
  • (Robert Lang) "Well -- I don't know what to say."
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "The garden too of course. Here are the keys."
  • (Robert Lang) "It will be a pleasure. I'll see that nothing is disturbed."

  • (Robert Lang) "No -- thank you, Mrs. Wheeler."

  • (Laurence Harvey) "Sorry I'm late. Panic on Wall Street. It seems every time the Viet Cong launch a new offensive, I'm late home for dinner."
  • (Laurence Harvey) "What time is dinner?"
  • (Elizabeth Taylor) "Well, I asked Delores to serve it at nine."
  • (Laurence Harvey) "Great. I guess we should be ready by half-past ten."
