Quotes from

Commandant Paul Vogel: Consider this place for a minute if you will. It often reminds one of the interior of a whale's belly.
Mike Davis: You sure get around.


Dr. Francis Hunter: [In an alcoholic haze to Mike] You'll spoil the rhythm of Dr. Hunter's famous prescription for pickling the heart: one injection every 15 minutes.
[He finishes a shot of whiskey, and the bartender pours him three more]
Dr. Francis Hunter: The rhythm is very important.


Toady: Consider the diamond itself for instance. Carbon, soot, chemically speaking. And yet the hardest of all matters. So hard, in fact, that whatever it touches must suffer: glass, steel, the human soul.
Mike Davis: Why don't you sell your rug someplace else?
