Bob RuskEdit

  • I don't know if you know it, Babs, but you're my type of woman.
  • Don't forget, Bob's your uncle.
  • If you can fix up a lot of idiots, why not me?

Richard BlaneyEdit

  • Do I look like a sex murderer to you? Can you imagine me creeping around London, strangling all those women with ties? That's ridiculous... For a start, I only own two.

Chief Inspector OxfordEdit

  • I expect she'll turn up sooner or later. These days, ladies abandon their honor far more readily than their clothes.
  • No, discretion is not traditionally the strong suit of the psychopath, dear. Believe me, that's what we're dealing with. You ought to read his wife's divorce petition.

Hotel porterEdit

  • Just thinking about the lusts of men makes me want to heave. He spoke french, spanish and german while in service.

DialogueEdit

Richard Blaney: [announcing himself to his wife's receptionist] You can inform Mrs. Blaney that one of her less successful exercises in matrimony has come to see her.
Monica Barling: And who shall I say is calling?
Richard Blaney: Mr. Blaney.

Solicitor in Pub: We were just talking about the tie murderer, Maisie. You'd better watch out.
Maisie, Barmaid: [salaciously] He rapes them first, doesn't he?
Solicitor in Pub: Yes, I believe he does.
Doctor in Pub: Well I suppose it's nice to know that every cloud has a silver lining.

Solicitor in Pub: Let's hope he slips up soon.
Doctor in Pub: In one way I rather hope he doesn't. We haven't had a good juicy series of sex murders since Christie. And they're so good for the tourist trade. Foreigners somehow expect the squares of London to be fog-wreathed, full of hansom cabs and littered with ripped whores, don't you think?

Inspector Oxford: Mr. Rusk - you're not wearing your tie.
Bob Rusk: [speechless] I...
