Quotes from

Tim Hazelton: [He's just returned to San Francisco after a long time away at sea] You look like someone they forgot to bury.
Frank Medlin: They didn't forget - I just wasn't there when they came around.


Frank Medlin: [He's just arrived home drunk] You know what happened to me today? A very funny thing. I was asleep in a nice, comfortable gutter. I mean, there were no rents to pay, no novels to write, no nothing... But all of a sudden I remembered that I was a man of responsibilities. Ha ha! A man of responsibilities - that's me!


Frank Medlin: You know, sometimes a man goes from wanting too much, to wanting nothing. He ought to do it gradually, or he gets all mixed up.
