Marianne Patourel: These figures prove that at the present cost of operation, a steamboat will eat up all its profits
Octavius Patourel: I still say, it’s most unseemly for a young woman to know so much about the shipping business.
Marianne Patourel: Oh, Papa, you’ll be using steamships in eight or ten years. But, by that time, you’ll be retired and I’ll be running the business.
Octavius Patourel: By that time, you’ll be married to some smart young fellow who will carry on in my place.
Marianne Patourel: If I ever marry, it won’t be because the groom is a good businessman.
Octavius Patourel: Marianne, my dear, sometimes you shock me.
Marianne Patourel: Of course I do. I’m bold and scheming and sometimes I think I’m not quite nice.

Movie Quote of the Day – The Postman Always Rings Twice, 1946 (dir. Tay Garnett)


Cora Smith: It’s too bad Nick took the car.
Frank Chambers: Even if it was here we couldn’t take it, unless we’d want to spend the night in jail. Stealing a man’s wife, that’s nothing, but stealing a man’s car, that’s larceny.
