Pat Hollmann says: This is a lovely time of day.

Erich Lohkamp says: It isn't day, it isn't night.

Pat Hollmann says: It's the edge of eternity. Let's stay right here, forever.

Pat Hollmann says: Alfons' Bar is exactly the place for a girl like me.

Klara Novak says: All my knowledge came from books, and I'd just finished a novel about a glamorous French actress from the Comedie Francaise. That's atheater in France. When she wanted to arouse a man's interest, she treated him like a dog.

Alfred Kralik says: Yes. Well... you treated me like a dog.

Klara Novak says: Yes. But instead of licking my hand... you barked.

Alfred Kralik says: There might be a lot we don't know about each other. You know, people seldom go to the trouble of scratching the surface of things to find the inner truth.

Klara Novak says: Well I really wouldn't care to scratch your surface, Mr. Kralik, because I know exactly what I'd find. Instead of a heart, a hand-bag. Instead of a soul, a suitcase. And instead of an intellect, a cigarette lighter... which doesn't work.

Alfred Kralik says: Do you know what I wish would happen? When your bell rings at 8:30 and you open the door... instead of Popkin, I come in.

Klara Novak says: Please don't make it more difficult for me.

Alfred Kralik says: I'd say, "Klara, darling."

Alfred Kralik says: I'd say, 'Klara, darling.'

Klara Novak says: No, you mustn't.

Alfred Kralik says: Klara, if I'd only known in the beginning how you felt about me... things would have been different. We wouldn't have been fighting all the time. If we quarreled, it wouldn't have been over suitcases and handbags... but over something like whether your aunt or grandmother... should live with us or not.

Klara Novak says: It's sweet of you to try to cheer me up.

Alfred Kralik says: Klara! Klara! Miss Novak!

Klara Novak says: Coming!

Alfred Kralik says: How are you today?
