The Maltese Falcon (1941) Poster

Barton MacLane: Lt. of Detectives Dundy



  • Sam Spade : Haven't you anything better to do than to keep popping in here early every morning and asking a lot of fool questions?

    Lt. Dundy : And gettin' a lot of lyin' answers!

    Sam Spade : Take it easy.

  • Lt. Dundy : Tom says you were in too much of a hurry to even stop and take a look at your dead partner. And you didn't go to Archer's house to tell his wife: we called your office, and the girl there said you told her to do it. I'll give you ten minutes to get to a phone and do your talking to the girl; I'll give you ten minutes to get to Thursby's joint, Gary and Leavenworth, you could do it easily in that time...

    Sam Spade : [to Det. Polhaus]  What's your boyfriend getting at?

  • Lt. Dundy : Well you know me Spade, if you did it or if you didn't, you'll get a square deal from me and most of the breaks. Don't know as I'd blame you much - man that killed your partner. But that won't stop me from nailing ya.

    Sam Spade : Fair enough
