    Tana: Isn't somebody gonna come and take him away?
    Schwartz: Yeah, in just a few minutes. You really liked him didn't you?
    Tana: The cop did... the one who killed him... he loved him.
    Schwartz: Well, Hank was a great detective all right.
    Tana: And a lousy cop.
    Schwartz: Is that all you have to say for him?

    Schwartz: Goodbye Tana.
    Tana: Adiós. (walks into the night)

  • Also one for Charlton Heston, in the scene where his character casually zips his car through the town's back alleyways; Heston really was simultaneously driving the car and acting.
