Herbert Marshall Quotes:
Gaston Monescu: I see. You have to be in the Social Register to keep out of jail. But when a man starts at the bottom and works his way up, a self-made crook, then you say, "Call the police! Put him behind bars! Lock him up!"
Regina Giddens: [Referring to marrying Horace] It didn't take me long to find out my mistake. Then it was just as if I couldn't stand the sight of you. I couldn't bear to have you touch me. I thought you were such a soft weak fool, you were so understanding when I didn't want you near me. The lies and excuses I used to make to you, and you believed them. That was when I began to despise you.
Horace Giddens: [starts looking agitated] Why didn't you leave me?
Regina Giddens: Where was I to go? What money did I have? I didn't think about it much, if I had, I'd have known you'd die before I did. But I couldn't have guessed you'd get heart trouble so early and so bad. I'm lucky Horace. I've always been lucky. I'll be lucky again.
[Horace drops his emergency medicine]
Horace Giddens: The other bottle. Please, upstairs in my room, in the draw.
[Regina does nothing. Horace stumbles upstairs himself, collapses and dies]
