Gordon Evers: I'm through with London. I may go out to the East again, Doctor says England's too damp for me.
Hector Stribling: Nonsense. Think of your work.

Hector Stribling: Oh, you'll never succeed at anything with that kind of attitude.
Gordon Evers: I shall succeed in keeping out of courtrooms.
