Quotes from

Matthew Stoker: That's enough, Rausch. Give him some brandy. Thank you, Rausch.
Gilbert Archer: Did you find the Bibles, Holy Joe?
Matthew Stoker: You know we didn't.
Mrs. Stoker: We really must apologize for Rausch, Mr. Archer. He's our most devoted convert and I fear at times a little over-zealous.
Matthew Stoker: The Bibles, Mr. Archer.
Gilbert Archer: The money, Reverend. It will take me three days to get them, and I never work for less than four figures a day.
Matthew Stoker: Very well. Here is a retainer of $3,000. You will kindly sign a receipt, just to make the transaction legitimate, which of course it is.
Gilbert Archer: Where can I reach you?
Matthew Stoker: You can't, Mr. Archer. We'll reach you when necessary.
Gilbert Archer: The entire holy trio?
Matthew Stoker: Precisely. The balance will be paid after you have delivered the Bibles to us. In the meantime, remember this receipt, if you should decide to call the police. My dear...
[motioning for his wife to prepare to leave]
Matthew Stoker: Oh I wonder, Mr. Archer, if you would do me a slight favor.
Gilbert Archer: Now just name it, Reverend. After all, we'll in business together.
Matthew Stoker: Thank you. Would you be kind enough to mention in your column that the Reverend Matthew Stoker and his very charming wife are spending the season in New York? Thank you.


Matthew Stoker: Now, Mr. Archer, suppose we entertain each other while my wife makes a brief search of the premises.
Gilbert Archer: Certainly. You play gin?
[Archer stands up to reach for a cigarette lighter. Stoker pushes the gun barrel into his chest. Archer motions toward a table]
Gilbert Archer: Lighter!
[Stoker tries to light it with no success]
Gilbert Archer: May I?
[He uses the lighter to knock the gun out of Stoker's hand]
Gilbert Archer: You need a refresher course, Reverend, at whatever seminary it was that you went to. Out!
Matthew Stoker: Very neat, Mr. Archer. Very neat, indeed. I've allowed myself to grow rather rusty. I'm afraid it comes from putting too much faith in my assistants.
[Stoker's assistant Rausch appears suddenly and knocks Archer unconscious]
Matthew Stoker: Such an impetuous young man.
[Speaking to his wife]
Matthew Stoker: Proceed, my dear.
[Speaking to Rausch]
Matthew Stoker: If Mr. Archer shows any signs of activity, Rausch, make him comfortable.


Gilbert Archer: Come in, Reverend. I've been expecting you.
Matthew Stoker: Were you indeed, Mr. Archer?
Gilbert Archer: Make yourself comfortable. What'll you have, scotch or bourbon?
Matthew Stoker: Bourbon, please. I indulge on rare occasions.
Gilbert Archer: Naturally. Why not? If you consult your Bible, you'll find a verse that prescribes a little wine for your stomach's sake.
Matthew Stoker: Mr. Archer, you're a never-ending source of amazement. And you have a Bible! Now isn't that...
Gilbert Archer: Cozy? Yes. Sit down, sit down, Reverend.
Matthew Stoker: Thank you.
Gilbert Archer: How's Mrs. Stoker, and your choirboy Rausch?
Matthew Stoker: Oh, both very well, thank you. Madame had a previous engagement or she'd have come with me. As for Rausch - well, I thought that on this occasion we could dispense with his impetuosity.
Gilbert Archer: Well, I was sure you'd bring him with you, knowing how stubborn I am to do business with.
Matthew Stoker: Yes, Mr. Archer, but this time I came convinced that you'd be cooperative.
Gilbert Archer: You did?
Matthew Stoker: Of course, my dear boy. It came to me in a revelation.
Gilbert Archer: I don't know where you bought the revelation, Reverend, but you've been gypped.
