Quotes from the Movie Laura

Perhaps our friend can weave all the loose ends into a noose, eh, McPherson?

Waldo Lydecker

And thus, as history has proved, Love is Eternal. It has been the strongest motivation for human actions throughout centuries. Love is stronger than Life. It reaches beyond the dark shadow of Death. I close this evening's broadcast with some favorite lines...Brief Life - They are not long, the weeping and the laughter, love and desire and hate. I think they have no portion in us after we pass the gate...They are not long, the days of wine and roses. Out of a misty dream, our path emerges for a while, then closes within a dream.

Waldo Lydecker

Goodbye, Laura. Goodbye, my love.

Waldo Lydecker

When a dame gets killed, she doesn't worry about how she looks.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

If anything should happen to you this time, I wouldn't like it.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

Dames are always pulling a switch on you.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

You took that poor girl in Miss Hunt's apartment. You knew all along it was she who was murdered. Didn't you know Laura Hunt would come back any day and spill the whole thing? Or did you plan to kill her too and hide the body someplace and cover up your first crime?...You took a bottle of Black Pony to her house Friday night...Where's the key to her apartment?

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

Don't worry. I told you I'd bring in the killer today. Yeah, I was just gonna make the arrest when you called. No, I can't tell you now. I'm not alone. You'll see when I come in.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

was 99% certain about you. But I had to get rid of that 1% doubt...I'd reached the point where I needed official surroundings.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

The doorbell rang and Diane Redfern went to the door in your negligee. She opened the door. The room was dark. Waldo saw a girl standing there and he assumed it was you. He figured that if he couldn't have you himself, he was gonna make sure that nobody else did, so he let her have it with both barrels right in the face. She fell here. Waldo heard Shelby running from the next room so he hid in the stairway outside. Shelby was scared so he ran out as fast as he could. Then Waldo came back and placed the gun in that clock.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

For a charming, intelligent girl, you certainly surrounded yourself with a remarkable collection of dopes.

Det. Lt. Mark McPherson

I can afford a blemish on my character but not on my clothes.

Shelby Carpenter

I also read palms, I cook, I swallow swords, I mend my own socks, I never eat garlic or onions. What more can you want of a man?

Then there was a moment's silence and then a shot. It was an awful explosion. By the time I reached her, the door was closed. She lay there on the floor....I was too confused, too horrified, incapable of doing anything. The room was dark. I saw only a vague heap lying on the floor. I don't think I fully grasped the situation. I think I called her name, but I'm not sure. I-I remember kneeling on the floor, feeling her heart. My first instinct was to call the police....I was afraid, not only for myself but for Laura. In a panicky sort of way, I felt that I must keep out of this to keep Laura out of it. Oh, I know now how foolish and hopeless it was, but there was only one thing on my mind - the safety of a person whose life was dearer to me than my own. Don't you understand that?

Shelby Carpenter
