Scandal Sheet (1952)
Julie Allison: [with tongue in cheek, referring to her and fellow reporter, Steve, going out of town together for several days to investigate a story] Mom, you think it's safe for me to travel out of state at night with this young man?
Mrs. Allison: Just so he doesn't misconstrue the meaning of "freedom of the press."
Julie Allison: Don't count your steaks before you can hear the sizzle!
Mark Chapman: Get her ready. We've got to be at the ballroom at eight. There's no time for nose powder.
Lt. Davis: We got a new man on the beat, here, McCleary. He's built like you between the ears. He saw a hole in the back of the dame's head and figured she was slugged.
Steve McCleary: Very rare items. Pictures of a dame with her mouth shut.
Mark Chapman: Allison, write me a sob story. 'Miss Lonely Heart' won't be lonely anymore.
Biddle: You know that wasn't a bad looking dame. Too bad the guy used an axe on her head. Spoiled some pretty pictures for me.
Steve McCleary: You should have started running when you got my wire, sucker.
Mark Chapman: I gambled. If the stakes are big enough, you don't run unless there's nothin' else left to do.
