William Bendix Quotes:

Gus Smith: My name is Schmidt, but I changed it to Smith. That's what I got against these guys more than anything else. They make me ashamed of the name I was born with. I got a lot of relatives in Germany. For all I know this guy may be one of them. I say throw him to the sharks!

Stauffer, alias Fred Foss: It didn't work. It was a busto-crusto.

Jeff: Wait a minute, you mean I don't get to smack Baby?
