Kay | 8 comments Favorite line from Chandler (he was describing a hulking thug, Moose Molloy):

"He was as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food cake."

Farewell, My Lovely

I've recently read that Chandler may have been making an allusion to Great Expectations, specifically the scene where a spider crawls out of Miss Havisham's rotting wedding cake.

There is a difference between the crime and business. To do business you must have capital. Sometimes I think that it's the only difference.
