Too Many Crooks (1959)
Billy Gordon: Guten tag.
Swarthy Man: Bonjour.
Billy Gordon: Oh! You're French.
Swarthy Man: No! I am Finnish.
Billy Gordon: Oh, why do you speak French?
Swarthy Man: Finnish is too difficult.
Billy Gordon: Did you hear that? A tax inspector. Well, he's out for a start. I never want to see him again.
Lucy Gordon: Billy, he's a nice young man and she loves him.
Billy Gordon: Oh, don't be so ridiculous. Nobody loves a tax inspector. They're beyond the pale!
Lucy Gordon: It's a most honourable profession.
Billy Gordon: Honourable? Are you kidding?
Fingers: Ooh, you told the Inspector some whoppers just now, didn't you, sir? Here, s'posing he wanted to meet your missus? You'd have a bit of a job finding the bits, wouldn't you, sir?
[Billy Gordon has refused to pay the ransom for his wife]
Sid: What are we supposed to do now? Keep her as a pet?
Fingers: Don't move, I've got you covered.
Billy Gordon: What, is that a space gun then?
Fingers: Huh, oh.
[He puts the flashlight down and points a gun at Billy]
Fingers: One move and I'll shoot you to comdom king.
Angela: Tommy and I are engaged.
Billy Gordon: What? Well, why didn't you tell me before?
Angela: Well, we couldn't tell you before it happened.
Billy Gordon: Before what happened?
Tommy: Uh, before we were engaged, sir.
Lucy Gordon: It's me you're selling, isn't it?
Fingers: Yes, and I shall sell you for any price I like.
Lucy Gordon: Oh no, you won't! Now listen to me you, little squirt!
Fingers: A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse.
Billy Gordon: A nod? What does that mean?
Fingers: That's an old Latin quotation and it means... is this your old woman's nightie?
[He pulls out a nightgown and hands it to Billy]
Snowdrop: I've never heard of anything more precious than money. Except dollars.
Billy Gordon: Thank you, your honor, and believe me...
Magistrate: I shan't believe you, Mr. Gordon. Go away. I've seen and heard quite enough of you for one day. Next case, please.
Court Usher: Number 14 on your list, sir... William Delaney Gordon.
[Billy Gordon make his second of three consecutive appearances before the court]
