Chan in The Chinese Cat (1944)
Tommy Chan: Pop, I've got a case that will knock your hat off!
Charlie Chan: Can remove hat without assistance, thank you.
Charlie Chan: You talk like rooster, who thinks sun come up just
to hear him crow.
Tommy Chan: My gosh, Pop, are you a mind reader?
Charlie Chan: If mind not too small.
Charlie Chan: You should get married and raise large family. Once
you have large family, all other troubles mean nothing.
Tommy Chan: You're lucky to have your assistant on hand, Pop.
Charlie Chan: Assistant? That you?
Tommy Chan: Sure!
Charlie Chan: Your assistance as welcome as water in sinking ship!
Tommy Chan: But you've always said that two men can find a clue quicker than one.
Charlie Chan: [he looks from side to side] Where is other man? Do not see other man!
Charlie Chan: Not glad to see me, Birmingham?
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Oh, it's nothing personal, Mr. Chan, but the last time we met was in Washington. If I remember right, there was two
or three murders.
Charlie Chan: Murder is my business.
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: Murder's all right, Mr. Chan, but you wholesale it!
Tommy Chan: Didn't I get you a swell case?
Charlie Chan: Every time you appear, I have swell case of assorted troubles.
Tommy Chan: I don't get it, Pop!
Tommy Chan: [laconically] You are weak limb to which no family tree may point with pride.
Charlie Chan: You are smart enough to keep eyes open?
Tommy Chan: You bet!
Charlie Chan: Do likewise - keep mouth shut!
Charlie Chan: [to Tommie] You put 2 + 2 together and get results
bigger than national debt.
Charlie Chan: [to Tommie as he looks over Charlie's shoulder]
Please remove breath from back of my neck! Go away! Go away!
Charlie Chan: [to a semi-conscious Tommie] How you feeling?
Tommy Chan: My head seems to be spinning.
Charlie Chan: Then you're all right. Everything back to normal.
Charlie Chan: [to Tommie] Next time you try this, you experience a sudden collision
in rear end of pants.
Charlie Chan: Never start anything unless I see end of road.
Dr. Paul Recknik: How are you coming along to date?
Charlie Chan: Did not say which end of road I could see.
Charlie Chan: [looking at moving funhouse figures] See one
with no head?
Tommy Chan: Un-huh.
Charlie Chan: He remind me of you.
Tommy Chan: [entering room where Charlie is being held by thugs]
Hi, Pop! What are you doing in there?
Charlie Chan: [laconically] Like puppy that come to smell subway third rail, you will receive complete information in few
Birmingham Brown, Taxi Driver: [after knocking bad guy unconscious by breaking
flashlight over his head] U-oh! Mr. Chan, I ruined your flashlight!
Charlie Chan: [looking at bad guy on the floor] Even trade . . . his lights out too!
