[Doyle tries to get Ruth to go out him]
Ruth: "You're as bad as Bodie."
Doyle: "Oh, no one's as bad as Bodie!"
Bodie: "I'm gonna pack this job in."
Doyle: "And do what?"
Bodie: "Live off some rich woman."
Doyle: "Oh, they can be very demanding."
Bodie: "How do you know?"
Doyle: "I've tried it. Very boring, very repetitive."
Bodie: "You little devil."
Cowley: "There's something waiting for us in a telephone box."
Minister: "I don't like the sound of that 'something'."
Bodie: "Half an ear, perhaps?" [Doyle laughs]
Cowley: "There are times, Bodie, when I find your ribaldry quite distasteful."
