"In Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed - but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. So long, Holly."

"Honest, sensible, sober, harmless Holly Martins. Holly - what a silly name."
The Third Man (1949)

- "I'd look good in a mink coat, honey."
- "You'd look good in a shower curtain."
