Nomination for Worst Noir Metaphor of All Time:
"His Adam's apple flopped about like a frog on a hot stove.”
Nomination for Worst Noir Declaration of Love of All Time:
"This is the wrong time and place, my dear, but I'd better tell you now.
I'm in love with you. I guess I've been in love with you for years.
It was only when I thought I was going to lose you, I realized it.
Sorry, Lois, but there it is. Better late than never, I suppose.
Having got that off my chest, let's get busy.
There must be some lifebelts somewhere down here."
