Shelby Carpenter (to Laura): "I forgot to tell you, I also read palms, I swallow swords, I mend my own socks, I never eat garlic or onions, what more could you want of a man?"
Waldo Lydecker (to Laura): "In my case, self-absorption is completely justified. I have never discovered any other subject quite so worthy of my attention."
Waldo Lydecker (to Laura): "Young woman, either you have been raised in some incredibly rustic community, where good manners are unknown, or you suffer from the common feminine delusion that the mere fact of being a woman exempts you from the rules of civilized conduct. Or possibly both."
Waldo Lydecker: "Tell me, why did they have to photograph her in that horrible condition?" Detective Mark McPherson: "When a dame gets killed, she doesn't worry about how she looks." Waldo Lydecker: "Will you stop calling her a dame?"
Waldo Lydecker (narrating): "I shall never forget the weekend Laura died. A silver sun burned through the sky like a huge magnifying glass. It was the hottest Sunday in my recollection. I felt as if I were the only human being left in New York. For with Laura's horrible death, I was alone. I, Waldo Lydecker, was the only one who really knew her, and I had just begun to write Laura's story when another of those detectives came to see me. I had him wait. I could watch him through the half-open door. (clock chimes) I noted that his attention was fixed upon my clock. There was only one other in existence, and that was in Laura's apartment, in the very room where she was murdered."
