Funny movie quotes from All Through the Night

All Through the Night is equal parts serious and funny. It’s a World War II drama, about criminals fighting Nazi saboteurs. And it has a lot of verbal humor as well!

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): Yeah, tracking down this Hamilton doll, I uncovered a nest of fifth columnists – fivers ? spies to you! Pepi was one of them, that’s what Joe found out, and that’swhy Pepi knocked him off.

Marty Callahan (Barton MacLane): Well, if that’s on the level, what are you telling me for? Why don’t you spill it to the cops?

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): I tried to, but no soap. Now listen, Marty, I know you’re no mental giant, but try to juggle this… all of you. I got a firsthand report tonight on what it’s like on the other side, from that Hamilton babe. And brother, I’m telling you, we gotta watch our steps. Those babies are strictly no good from way down deep. They’re no bunch of petty racketeers trying to muscle in on some small territory – they want to move in wholesale, take over the whole country.

Marty Callahan (Barton MacLane): So what? It don’t make no difference to me who runs the country, as long as they stay out of my way.

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): That’s just it, they’re not going to stay out of your way.

Marty Callahan (Barton MacLane): Oh, yes, they will.

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): Oh, now listen, big shot, they’ll tell you what time you get up in the morning and what time you go to bed at night. They’ll tell you what you eat, what kind of clothes you can wear, what you drink. They’ll even tell you the morning paper you can read.

Marty Callahan (Barton MacLane): They can’t do that, it’s against the law!

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart):: Any message?

Barney (Frank McHugh): Should I leave out the curse words?

[to reporters]
Leda Hamilton (Kaaren Verne): Well, I… I feel a little like the princess who has been rescued from the dragon by the white knight.

Reporter: Oh, that’s you, Gloves! You’re the white knight!

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): Wait a minute, wait a minute! Anybody that prints that can expect the usual trouble.

Reporter: What else? Go ahead.

Leda Hamilton (Kaaren Verne): Well, I also feel it’s about time someone knocked the axis back on its heels.

Barney (Frank McHugh): So I could catch the subway home.

Barney (Frank McHugh): Say, chief, can’t I get away just long enough to give my girl a quick hello?

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): No, stick around, will ya?

Starchie (Jackie Gleason): What are you so nervous about? She’ll keep!

Barney (Frank McHugh): That’s what you think. I can’t take a chance. The fleet’s in and she’s defense-minded!

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): I start out the evening with a nice poker game in view and wind up in Central Park playing Cowboys and Indians. Now I don’t know where I am. How about that! Me, in the middle of New York City, lost in the woods.

[Gloves and Ebbing are in a boat filled with explosives]

Franz Ebbing (Conrad Veidt): You’re not afraid to die, are you?

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): I don’t mind dying, but I hate to be divided up into small pieces.

Barney (Frank McHugh): That friend of yours; how is he?

Sunshine (William Demerest): Fine! He’s dead.

Sunshine (William Demerest): Shut up, the guy’s dead.

Barney (Frank McHugh): Well, I’m reasonably sorry.

Barney (Frank McHugh): I don’t get it. I marry Annabelle and I spend my honeymoon with you.

Sunshine (William Demerest): Well, I can cook.

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): [Breaking into building] Personally, I’d feel more comfortable if I had a rod.

Sunshine (William Demerest): Here lies Sunshine under the sod. That’s not odd. He had no rod.

Gloves Donahue (Humphrey Bogart): You know, there are times when I wonder about you.
