Walsh: "...Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."
Loach: "What happened to your nose, Gittes? Somebody slammed a bedroom window on it?" Jake Gittes: "Nope. Your wife got excited. She crossed her legs a little too quick - you understand what I mean, pal?"
Noah Cross (on the meal - fish): "I hope you don't mind... I believe they should be served with the head." Jake Gittes: "Fine... long as you don't serve the chicken that way."
Noah Cross: "Exactly what do you know about me? Sit down." Jake Gittes: "...Mainly that you're rich... and too respectable to want your name in the newspapers." Noah Cross: " 'Course I'm respectable - I'm old. Politicians, ugly buildings, and whores all get respectable if they last long enough."
