Sometimes you have to lose yourself 'fore you can find anything.

Lewis

[to Eve] Who are you kidding? You have no feelings to hurt.

Roger Thornhill

Lewis: Your name Griner?
First Griner: What you wanna know for?
Lewis: I was wondering if you and your brother could take a couple of trucks down to Aintry for us. We'll be there about Sunday noon.
First Griner: Drive 'em down there for what?
Lewis: Me and my buddy here are taking a canoe trip down the Cahulawassee. We'd like our cars to be down in Aintry when we get there. Be there about Sunday noon.
First Griner: [sarcastically] Canoe trip?
Lewis: That's right, a canoe trip.
First Griner: What the hell you wanna go fuck around with that river for?
Lewis: Because it's there.
First Griner: It's there all right. You get in there and can't get out, you gonna wish it wasn't.
Ed: [to Lewis, whispering] Look, Lewis, let's go back to town and, ah... play golf.
Lewis: [ignoring Ed] I'll give you thirty dollars to take those cars down to Aintry.
First Griner: I'll take fifty.
Lewis: Fifty, my ass.
Ed: Lewis, don't play games with these people!
First Griner: Whud you say?
Lewis: I said "fifty, my ass."
Ed: [whispering urgently] Lewis!
First Griner: I'll do it for forty.
Lewis: Mm-hmm...
[to Ed]
Lewis: You good for ten?
Ed: Sure.

We killed a man, Drew. Shot him in the back. A mountain man. A cracker.

Lewis

So horribly sad. How is it I feel like laughing?

Bureaucrat

Seems to me you fellows could stand a little less training from the F.B.I. and a little more from the Actor's Studio.

Phillip Vandamm

Roger Thornhill: When we get out of this, you can ride the train with me again.
Eve Kendall: Is that a proposition?
Roger Thornhill: It's a proposal, sweetie!

Roger Thornhill: You're police, aren't you? Or is it FBI?
The Professor: FBI, CIA, ONI... we're all in the same alphabet soup.

The Professor: If I thought there was any chance of changing your mind, I'd talk about Miss Kendall, of whom you so obviously disapprove.
Roger Thornhill: Yes, for using sex like some people use a flyswatter.

That wasn't very sporting, using real bullets.

Phillip Vandamm

We figure what way is south and we start walkin'.

Ottway

There were only four of us that knew your identity, two of us are dead.
