Panama Smith: "He's dead."
Cop: "Well, who is this guy?"
Panama Smith: "This is Eddie Bartlett."
Cop: "Well, how're you hooked up with him?"
Panama Smith: "I could never figure it out."
Cop: "What was his business?"
Panama Smith: "He used to be a big shot."

Cagney's Eddie Bartlett has one helluva death spiral - it was a dance into a chalk outline, like he couldn't resist a few fancy steps on his way to sit at the right hand of the Lord, I guess.
