Quotes from

Pelham Vetch: There seems to be some misunderstanding here. No, there is a stronger word. You know the word. Treason.
Morgan Vallin: That's too strong a word. I resent it.
Pelham Vetch: And for which there are stronger consequences, which you will resent even more.


Morgan Vallin: Roy doesn't trust you, Johnny.
Johnny Allegro: Roy doesn't?
Morgan Vallin: Perhaps he doesn't like your face.
Johnny Allegro: Maybe I don't like his.
Morgan Vallin: I like this spirit of mutual distrust. It could relieve me of a lot of responsibility. But I don't trust you either. I don't mean to be offensive. It's simply my policy to distrust everyone. To me, suspicion is another word for caution.
Johnny Allegro: Is that all you wanted to discuss with me?
Morgan Vallin: Oh no. No. Sit down, Johnny. I'm a man who enjoys competition. For instance, that scene I interrupted when I came in. Competition is healthy in all fields - business, athletics, or women. In the latter category, especially now in our particular case, I have complete confidence because I have the advantage of knowing Glenda.
Johnny Allegro: Then you can't lose.
Morgan Vallin: I'm glad you see it that way, Johnny, because I must confess to a weakness. I'm a bad loser.
Johnny Allegro: Is there anything else?
Morgan Vallin: We'll consider the incident closed for the present. Why, it's only 10 o'clock. Would you like to hear some good music?
Johnny Allegro: No, thanks. I think I could use a little fresh air. And besides, good music is wasted on me.


Morgan Vallin: I still have one more arrow. It's a silver one. Remember, Johnny? I can't miss with this one. I told you I was a bad loser.
Glenda Chapman: Morgan, what are you doing?
Morgan Vallin: You're just in time to say goodbye to your friend.
Glenda Chapman: Why, Morgan? What happened?
Morgan Vallin: Apparently you didn't find out all about him. You've been a gullible little fool. He's an informer working with the authorities. Well, what's your decision now?
Glenda Chapman: There's only one to do, Morgan.
Morgan Vallin: I told you, Mr. Allegro. I have the advantage of knowing Glenda.
Glenda Chapman: Why not give him the chance you'd give any animal?
Morgan Vallin: That's right, and you have an advantage over an animal. You can think. I'll give you a five second start. One. Two. Three. Four.
[Glenda knocks the arrow out of his hand]
