Cary Grant (Roger Thornhill): Is that a proposition?
Eva Marie Saint (Eve): I never discuss love on an empty stomach.
Cary Grant (Roger): You've already eaten!
Eva Marie Saint (Eve): But you haven't.

Cary Grant (Roger): And what the devil is all this about? Why was I brought here?
James Mason (Phillip Vandamm): Games, must we?
Cary Grant (Roger): Not that I mind a slight case of abduction now and then, but I have tickets for the theater this evening, to a show I was looking forward to and I get, well, kind of unreasonable about things like that.
James Mason (Vandamm): With such expert playacting, you make this very room a theater.

Cary Grant (Roger): In the world of advertising, there's no such thing as a lie. There's only expedient exaggeration.

Eva Marie Saint (Eve): I'm a big girl.
Cary Grant (Roger): Yeah, and in all the right places, too.

Cary Grant (Roger): What's wrong with men like me?
Eva Marie Saint (Eve): They don't believe in marriage.
Cary Grant (Roger): I've been married twice.
Eva Marie Saint (Eve): See what I mean?

James Mason (Vandamm):This matter is best disposed of from a great height, over water.

Cary Grant (Roger): Now, what can a man do with his clothes off for twenty minutes? Couldn't he have taken an hour?
Eva Marie Saint (Eve): You could always take a cold shower.

Cary Grant (Roger): I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders dependent upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself slightly killed.
