On comparisons

As quoted in this month's Sight & Sound, from The Shop Around The Corner, when Klara describes Kralik, without knowing that he's her pen-pal:

I really wouldn't care to scratch your surface, Mr Kralik, because I know exactly what I'd find: instead of a heart, a handbag; instead of a soul, a suitcase; and instead of an intellect, a cigarette lighter... that doesn't work.

That'd be the genius that is Ernst Lubitsch then.
