Movie Quote of the Day (Bogie and Bacall, on Their Bad Manners)

Vivian (played by Lauren Bacall): “I don't like your manners.”

Philip Marlowe (played by Humphrey Bogart): “And I'm not crazy about yours. I didn't ask to see you. I don't mind if you don't like my manners, I don't like them myself. They are pretty bad. I grieve over them on long winter evenings. I don't mind your ritzing me drinking your lunch out of a bottle. But don't waste your time trying to cross-examine me.”—The Big Sleep (1946), screenplay by William Faulkner, Leigh Brackett and Jules Furthman, based on the novel by Raymond Chandler, directed by Howard Hawks
