Walter Neff (voiceover): "That was all there was to it. Nothing had slipped, nothing had been overlooked.There was nothing to give us away. And yet, Keyes, as I was walking down the street to the drugstore, suddenly, it came over me that everything would go wrong. It sounds crazy Keyes, but it's true, so help me. ...I couldn't hear my own footsteps. It was the walk of a dead man."
Edward S. Norton: "There's a widespread feeling that just because a man has a large office he must be an idiot."
Walter Neff (voiceover): "How could I have known that murder could sometimes smell like honeysuckle?"
Walter Neff: "Look baby, you can't get away with it. You wanna knock him off, don'tcha." Phyllis Dietrichson: "That's a horrible thing to say." Walter Neff: "Who'd you think I was anyway? The guy that walks into a good looking dame's front parlor and says, "Good afternoon, I sell accident insurance on husbands... you got one that's been around too long? One you'd like to turn into a little hard cash?" Just gimme a smile and I'll help you collect? Boy, what a dope you must think I am." Phyllis Dietrichson: "I think you're rotten." Walter Neff: "I think you're swell -- so long as I'm not your husband." Phyllis Dietrichson: "Get out of here." Walter Neff: "You bet I'll get out of here, baby. I'll get out of here, but quick."
Phyllis Dietrichson: "Nettie, show Mr. Neff into the living room." Walter Neff: "Where would the living room be?" Nettie: "In there, but they keep the liquor locked up." Walter Neff: "That's alright, I always carry my own keys..."
