Quote of the Week (circa 1943)

This week finds me too overwhelmed with make-money work to do the not-make-so-much-money work here. I’m working some odd hours and find myself up late most nights watching whatever I can find on TV. I’m actually planning a post on this subject, but I couldn’t let my favorite scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Shadow of a Doubt” go by. To understand it properly and in context, you should see the movie. Regardless, I find it to be both funny and poignant.

Charlie: What’s the matter with you two? Do you always have to talk about killing people?

Joe: We’re not talking about killing people. Herb’s talking about killing me, and I’m talking about killing him.

Emma: It’s your father’s way of relaxing.
