The Postman Always Rings Twice video

from 1946 movie with Lana Turner as Cora Smith and John Garfield as Frank Chambers. Quotes
Cora Smith: My husband tells me your name is Frank.
Frank Chambers: That's right.
Cora Smith: Well, Frank, around here, you'll kindly do your reading on your own time.
Frank Chambers: Your husband, Nick, told me I was through for the day and I thought he was boss.
Cora Smith: The best way to get my husband to fire you would be not doing what I tell you to do.
Frank Chambers: Well, you haven't asked me to do anything. Yet.
Cora Smith: I want all these chairs painted.
Frank Chambers: All right. I'll look in the paper. Maybe I can find a sale on cheap paint.
Cora Smith: You won't find anything cheap around here. Look in the cupboard under the counter.
Frank Chambers: As my friend Nick would say, that's wonderful. Next time anybody is in town they can pick up a paintbrush.
Cora Smith: Look on the bottom shelf.
Frank Chambers: Well, what do you know about that? Why didn't you start this campaign of rehabilitation before I came? Or were you waiting for me?
Cora Smith: Nick was saving that.
Frank Chambers: Nick saves a lot.
Cora Smith: It's none of your business.
Frank Chambers: I didn't say it was. Only when I have something, I don't save it. What do you want to paint these chairs for?
Cora Smith: Because I want to make something of this place. I want to make it into an honest-to-goodness...
Frank Chambers: Well, aren't we ambitious? We want to make a lot of money so we can buy lots of pretty clothes. Or maybe we want to put a little aside for our husband and us in our old age.

  Cora Smith: That's what you think.
Frank Chambers: Tell me one thing. How did you ever come to marry a guy like that?
Cora Smith: Is that any of your business?
Frank Chambers: Maybe.

Cora Smith: Please don't.

Frank Chambers: Well, he rang twice for Cora and now he's ringing twice for me, isn't he?
