Harry Morgan Quotes:

Art Croft: [talking about Gil Carter] Whenever he gets low in spirits or confused in his mind, he doesn't feel right until he's had a fight. It doesn't matter whether he wins or not. He feels fine again afterwards.


Clint Braden: Hey, piano player.
Cully: Yes, Mr. Braden.
Clint Braden: Tonight try to play the notes the way that they were written.
Cully: I'll use both hands.
Clint Braden: And if your pal Johnny is late again, I hope he can dance with a broken leg.
Cully: That's what I like about you, boss. Always ready with a pat on the back.


Princess Zolita: The leaves are ready to speak.
Cully: No lemon?
Gypsy: The tea leaves have spoken.
Princess Zolita: If you do not mind, I work alone!
Cully: What do they spell, Mother?
Princess Zolita: How lucky you are, the wheel of fortune has stopped at your number.
Johnny: A wheel? That's roulette.
Princess Zolita: And I see a dice table, too.
Cully: No blackjack? This boy plays all games.
Princess Zolita: And a new woman is coming into your life. A beautiful, young redhead.
Johnny: It can't be a redhead, Princess. My girl's a blonde. Take another look.
Princess Zolita: Now I see a blonde. Oh, but she has been bad luck for you. The tea leaves say... you will have good luck with the redhead.
Cully: I know better, I married one. Take the advice of a 20-year loser, no redheads.
Princess Zolita: He must not defy the tea leaves.
Cully: How are you going to explain her to Frankie?
Johnny: Why explain? We'll just use her to make a bundle.
Cully: You're going to pass off a beautiful redhead as a good-luck piece? Good luck.
Gypsy: If, uh, if I may be so crude.
Johnny: Oh, sure.
[Johnny hands a $10 bill to the princess]
Gypsy: If you please. The princess never soils her royal hands with money. $10? When the tea leaves promise a beautiful redhead, it is $20.
Cully: A lot of money for a cup of tea. That's a gypsy for you. Takes all your dough so you can't take her advice.
Princess Zolita: Minor problems like that I cannot solve.
Cully: Maybe you can get another advance from Braden.
Johnny: Not a chance. I'm already in for five weeks' salary.
Cully: That you lost right back into his pocket. Braden's got a nice little thing going there.

Harry Morgan Facts
Was supposed to reprise his role as Off. Bill Gannon, on the revival of the third incarnation of "Dragnet" (1951), in 1982, but was unavailable, because he was under contract with 20th Century Fox, hence Kent McCord was supposed to play Jack Webb's new partner in the series. Unfortunately, those two plans have been scrapped when Webb passed away, late in 1982.

Second wife, Barbara Bushman, is the granddaughter of silent screen star Francis X. Bushman and the daughter of Ralph Bushman.

Best remembered by the public for his starring roles as Officer Bill Gannon on "Dragnet 1967" (1967) and as Colonel - later Surgeon - Dr. Sherman T. Potter on "M*A*S*H" (1972).
