Quote from Over My Dead Body

Over My Dead Body – While talking to Mr. Donald Barrett of Barrett & De Russy in his office, Wolfe remarks “You’re suffering from an occupational disease. When an international financier is confronted by a holdup man with a gun, he automatically hands over not only his money and jewelry but also his shirt and pants, because it doesn’t occur to him that a robber might draw the line somewhere.”

Ain’t that the truth!

Quote from Too Many Cooks

Too Many Cooks – At the “Les Quinze Maitres” Archie notes, after the third course, that “Those guys eating were like a woman packing a trunk – it’s not a question of capacity but of how much she has to put in.”

Wonderful bit of word play!

Interesting Quote from Rex Stout at Pink Ink

Pink Ink: Mail Call

Pink Think: “If I’m home with no chore at hand, and a package of books has come, the television set and the chess board and the unanswered mail will have to manage without me if one of the books is a detective story.” – Rex Stout
