Weekend Challenge: Who Wants More Film Noir quotes? I do, I do!!

I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge this last relatively warm (here in PA at least) weekend in January and I decided we needed another round of quotes from detective/ film noir movies-WOO HOO!!

Classic film noir are filled with hard-boiled dialogue which is the literary equivalent of a quick punch to the gut.  Here’s an example:  “You ever cross me again, or look like it, I’ll bury you. Now beat it.” These hard-boiled lines come from the mind of tough-guy private investigator Philip Marlowe, which is to say from author Raymond Chandler.  The characters in film noir are all morally gray and you're never sure if the hero isn’t actually the villain or that the villain might turn out to be right in the end.

Now if you want to go along for this ride, load your gat, put on your gumshoes, and join me in the drizzly, treacherous world of noir.

Choose a number between 1 and 45 and I will give you a famous film noir line.  For example:  “"She tried to sit in my lap while I was still standing.”

See what I mean by a punch to the gut :):)   I hope this craziness inspires you, so please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP.  My fandoms are:  RDJ's Sherlock Holmes, BBC Sherlock, Elementary, Game of Thrones, Supergirl, The Flash, Hawaii Five-0, Pretty Little Liars, Fringe, Alias, Hannibal, Veronica Mars, Wonder Woman, Smallville, Buffy and Angel, X-Men First Class and Star Trek 2009 Reboot movies)
