How long do you think it will take before they figure out we put these stick figures in our places?
My Suspicion is that heading North by Northwest is our best chance To Catch a Notorious Thief.
Look into my eyes and repeat after me:
I do not want to smoke, I do not like cigarettes....
I haven't yet cast the roll of your next co-star.
Which svelte blond with beautiful eyes and a sultry voice would you like?
Really, Hitch, you don't need to point that thing at me. I'll do the film.
I'd have used you in more films Cary, but you're so 2-dimensional.
For Dr. Suess fans: The North by Northwest-going Zax and the South by
Southeast-going Zax in their infamous stand-off.

Hitch: My fortune cookie told me I would meet someone tall, DARK and handsome...
I shall have to poke you with my cigarette

Director's Successor in Alfred Hitchcock Presents
The Odd Couple?
AH: Cary , I have an excellent part for you in my next movie.
CG: Great! What part ?
AH: You'll play my shadow.
CG: Sounds interesting but are you sure that I'll be convincing as your shadow?!
AH: Certainly! This is not a primitive and ugly midday shadow, you'll be an elegant and debonair evening shadow!
CG: Why there is no light ?
AH: They call you a cat, you should see in the dark.
CG: Yes, but I am afraid that somebody will step on my tail.
"I have a job for you."
"Cary Grant, I presume."
"And you are?"
Cary: Am I standing in your shadow Alf, or are the light's out?
Cary: Knock, knock.
Hitch: Who's there?
Hitch: Ida who?
Cary: I'd have done more movies for you but I'm pickier about blondes than you are.
You'll never learn the "guess which hand it's in" trick if you won't put both hands behind your back.
May I have this dance?
"Now you listen to me. You are far too tall, far too good looking, and unless you tell me your secret, I am going to stub this cigarette out on your stomach."
Hitch: Its not so much that you're taller and handsomer, Cary, but I suspect your cigar is bigger than mine . . ..
"Silhouettes of Greatness"
"Shadowed in Mystery"

Hitchcock: This is the new murder weapon for the next scene.
Grant: What is it?
Hitchcock: A cigarette; these things are dangerous.
"This is very top secret Cary. Now it is very important for you to successfully deliver this message, but whatever you do don't..."
"This picture just screams suspense doesn't it?!"
Hitchcock: Everyone wants to be Cary Grant; I want to be him the most.
Cary: I never realized I was so tall.
Cary: I wonder what he wants this time of night.
Cary: Yes! I knew North by Northwest wasn't the end of the Grant-Hitchcock era. Now I will be one up on Stewart. I knew I was his favorite! Here it comes, a new
script just for me!
Hitchcock: What are you so happy about; it's just a cigarette.
