Romance of the Underworld

1
"Her mother's funeral."

2
"Life hands all of us
 these jolts, Miss - and
 we've got to take 'em."

3
"Keep your chin up!"

4
"Glad mine's for a
 wedding anniversary."

5
"Where's Champagne
 Joe?"

6
"Tell him Derby Dan
 is here."

7
"Not for a pal, Dan --
 that's rubbing alcohol."

8
"We're all awful sorry,
 Judy."

9
"These suckers guzzle
 stuff that'd burn holes
 in a battleship."

10
"Where's Judy?"

11
"I'm broke tonight, Kid.
 Kick in your wages -
 on account."

12
"I need every cent this
 week, Dan. You know
 what's happened."

13
"If you need dough,
 there's a live, out-of-
 town Grandpa. Go
 to work on him!"

14
"I'm sick of this life!
 I'd feel cleaner working
 in a sewer!"

15
"Why play with that
 iceberg -- when you
 could have a steam-
 heated Momma like
 me?"

16
"I'm taking no chances
 while you're Joe's girl.
 Wait till we get him
 out of the way."

17
"I'm through with this
 cheap racket -- and
 with you, too!"

18
"I've been robbed!"

19
"This raid's just in time.
 We've caught a good
 witness on the first
 bounce."

20
"I'll slide out the front
 door and stir up some
 bail."

21
"Dan, who rolled
 this man?"

22
"Give Joe a frisk."

23
"You wouldn't lie to
 me, would you,
 stool-pigeon?"

24
"Not me, Lieutenant
 Burke! I'm for law
 and order!"

25
"Hello, Joe!"

26
"'evening, Ed!"

27
"Customers -- outside!"

28
"Didn't see anything of
 a stray wallet, did
 you?"

29
"Receipt for one quart
 of evidence, half full."

30
"Just another fine - -
 part of the overhead."

31
"Last time I was late
 for the wagon and
 didn't get a seat!"

32
"This means more than
 a fine, Joe - -"

33
"- it's robbery - and
 the big house, for
 you!"

34
"Beat it, small-towner -
 before somebody sells
 you the city hall!"

35
"Who planted that
 stuff on me?"

36
"What stuff, Dearie?
 I don't know nothing
 about it!"

37
"What's your hurry,
 Sister?"

38
"Where you going?"

39
"With you, to the Station
 House, I guess."

40
"What're you doing in
 a joint like this?"

41
"What does a girl
 usually do in a
 joint like this?"

42
"Where did you think
 you were going?"

43
"I was -- running
 away."

44
"Keep on running."

45
"Use this -- --"

46
"- and keep your
 chin up!"

47
"You're through --
 get your time!"

48
"Where you goin'
 tonight, Baby?"

49
"Night school."

50
"Steve Ransome, you're
 sure lucky -- with the
 firm sending you to
 Europe!"

51
"I'm awfully sorry, Sir!"

52
"It's quite all right."

53
"No harm done."

54
"If Joe ever finds out
 how he got there,
 it'll take a week to
 pick the lead out of
 you."

55
"Welcome home, Mr.
 Ransome! Hope you
 enjoyed your vacation
 in Europe."

56
"I'm Judith Andrews -
 one of the new
 stenographers."

57
"Am I going too fast?"

58
"I'm awfully sorry!"

59
"It's quite all right.
 No harm done!"

60
"It's wonderful -
 the way you've
 progressed...."

61
A New Secretary --

62
"Berkowitz Brothers,
 Chicago --"

63
"Change that to
 Markowitz, Inc.,
 Cincinnati."

64
"No, make that Lefkowitz
 and Company, Toledo!"

65
"I think you mean
 O'Brien and Sons,
 Boston."

66
"Let's forget business.
 Will you have dinner
 with me tonight?"

67
"You know, I've almost
 decided to get a new
 secretary."

68
"These last few months,
 you've kept my mind
 off my work."

69
"You're like the roses
 you put on my desk -
 fresh - lovely - clean -"

70
"Judith, I love you! Will
 you marry me?"

71
"I love you, too. But
 you scarcely know
 me - - I must have
 time to think...."

72
"Take all the time you
 want, but we're going
 to be married tomorrow."

73
"His Honor is expecting
 you. Will you please
 wait until court is
 over?"

74
"Dan Manning for
 sentence!"

75
"You have had a fair
 trial and have been
 found guilty of
 larceny - -"

76
"I sentence you to one
 year in the state
 prison!"

77
"That's easy, Burke!
 I can do a year
 standing on my head!"

78
"I'll make it two years
 - so you can get back
 on your feet!"

79
"The Judge is going to
 marry an old friend!"

80
"Open your trap - and
 you'll never even start
 your sentence!"

81
"I'm awful glad for you,
 Miss. I hope you'll
 always be happy."

82
"I'll bet you've forgotten
 that this is our second
 wedding anniversary."

83
"And I've been afraid you
 wouldn't remember!"

84
"He's a born golfer --
 see the way he handles
 a club!"

85
"The man is here to
 fix the radio."

86
"Mr. Ransome must
 have sent for him."

87
"Well, what do you 
 want?"

88
"Plenty!"

89
"You're not going to
 destroy this home!
 Get out!"

90
"Listen, Kid - you can't
 shake off your past
 that easy."

91
"Don't take that bracelet!
 My husband gave it to
 me just this morning!"

92
"You can get these
 back easy."

93
"Meet me by six o'clock
 with five thousand
 cash - - or I'll come
 back and tell Papa!"

94
"Remember, five grand -
 or I'll tell Papa!"

95
"Will there be six for
 your anniversary
 dinner, Ma'am?"

96
"If I'm late coming home,
 tell Mr. Ransome I went
 shopping."

97
"A Mrs. Ransome --
 well-dressed -- says
 it's important -- and
 personal."

98
"And you never told 
 your husband about -
 about the old days?"

99
"He has so much faith
 ....and we love each
 other so....I'd never
 do anything to kill his
 happiness!"

100
"You go on home and
 let me do the worrying."

101
"Champagne Joe was
 paroled from the
 big house yesterday,
 wasn't he?"

102
"Don't get sacred.
 I just want to talk
 to Champagne Joe."

103
"He ain't here."

104
"Too bad! I think I'll
 go in and talk to
 him, anyhow."

105
"Seen anything of your
 old pal, Derby Dan?"

106
"Fine fellow, Dan."

107
"I always wondered what
 he had against you --
 when he squealed about
 that sucker's wallet and
 watch."

108
"Don't kid me! I wouldn't
 take a cop's word for the 
 time of day!"

109
"Don't take my word.
 Just find out who
 your old girl's sweetie
 is now."

110
"In your old apartment."

111
"Did you think I'd be
 giving you rocks like
 these?"

112
"I'm trading this stuff
 for a big bundle of
 hush money."

113
"How's our distinguished
 coroner today?"

114
"How's business?"

115
"Pretty quiet."

116
"I've got a hunch
 business is going
 to pick up."

117
"Why didn't you tell
 me you were getting
 out, Joe?"

118
"Just wanted to give
 you a little surprise."

119
"My two pals!"

120
"You're not sore about
 me and the kid, are
 you?"

121
"You've just been minding
 her for me -- till I got
 out."

122
"My two pals!"

123
"Dan, let's go down to
 the old joint and have
 a drink - for old time's
 sake!"

124
"Just locking her in --
 so you won't lose her."

125
"You're a great pal --
 sending me cigarettes 
 -- minding my girl --"

126
"You dirty, double-crossing
 stool-pigeon!"

127
"Got a job for you, 
 Doc."

128
"Who do you think just
 got bumped off?"

129
"Derby Dan Manning!"

130
"That's the greatest
 public improvement
 since the subway!"

131
"Too bad! Dan was
 a fine fellow!"

132
"The guy that did
 it got away --"

133
"- but they say it was
 his old pal, Champagne
 Joe."

134
"Aw, Joe never did it.
 He wouldn't hurt a
 fly!"

135
"Guess I'll go with
 you."

136
"Just a minute, dear -
 till I answer the bell."

137
"Now you got your stuff
 back, don't worry any
 more....Dan's given up
 public speaking!"

138
"Well, Ma - - there's
 another day's work
 done."

139
"How about a movie?"
