John Bromfield Quotes:

[first lines]
[Joe is painting a picture of a woman in a negligee; he becomes frustrated, and paints a red slash over the painting]
Nora Manning: [his mother, Nora, enters.] Well, it's different...but is it art?
Joe Manning: Art? It's not even fit to hang in a barroom.
Nora Manning: I wish I looked as good...and I did, once.
[looking at the painting more closely.]
Nora Manning: What's wrong with it?
Joe Manning: I don't know, Nora. I don't know! I can see it in my head, but it doesn't come out on the canvas. I want her to have warmth, and humor, and wisdom...and innocence...a girl you'd want to know.
Nora Manning: Have you ever known a girl like that, Joe?
[smiles]
Nora Manning: No, I didn't think so. She wouldn't be quite human, you know. You're idealizing, Joe.
Joe Manning: About women or art?
Nora Manning: For you, is there any difference? Everything has to be perfect, or you destroy it.
Joe Manning: Aw, Nora, you make me sound like a case.
Nora Manning: The army changed you, Joe. You went away a boy, and came back a man. I wish I knew what kind of man.
Joe Manning: I think I'll get drunk.


Fritzi Darvel: Oh, so that's it! I had an idea you were playing up to that dame!
[She slaps him hard]
Fritzi Darvel: You two-timing, no good... And on top of it, you don't even try to hide it! Carrying on an affair with another woman right under my nose! Why, you're not going to do it, and what's more, I think you're a phony! And I was ready to leave my husband! For what? For a big bluff like you!
[She succumbs to his persistant, passionate kiss]
Ricardo 'Rick' De Villa: You know you're very beautiful when you get mad! But listen, no other woman means a thing to me, and if you don't know it now, you never will. Just think, an opportunity like this knocks only once, and I know when to open the door.


Ricardo 'Rick' De Villa: Fullmer, you're not gonna charge me with a murder I didn't commit?
