Catherine ‘Keechie’ Mobley: Bowie?
Arthur ‘Bowie’ Bowers: Yeah?
Catherine ‘Keechie’ Mobley: Don’t shut yourself up cold like this. I don’t know what to do.
Arthur ‘Bowie’ Bowers: No?
Catherine ‘Keechie’ Mobley: No, I don’t.
Arthur ‘Bowie’ Bowers: You know just what you’re doing now. Just tell me when I’m doing the wrong thing; I’ll snap out of it.
Catherine ‘Keechie’ Mobley: Alright, Bowie.

Movie Quote of the Day – Detective Story, 1951 (dir. William Wyler)


Shoplifter: You married?
Susan Carmichael: *shakes head no*
Shoplifter: Me neither. Everybody tells ya, “Why don’t you get married? You should be married.” My mother, my father, my sister, my aunt. “Get married.” As if I didn’t want to get married! Where do you find a man? Get me a man and I’ll get married. Anything. As long as it’s got pants. [beat] Married. It’s easy to talk.
