“Roarke who?” “Just Roarke, as far as I know. Big money there. Kind of guy that touches shit and turns it into gold bricks. You’ve got to start reading more than the sports page, Dallas.” “Hey, I read the headlines. Did you hear about the cocker spaniel recall?”Eve and Feeney
“His eyes met hers, held just an instant longer than comfortable. "Who won?" "I did. It's a mistake to come between me and food.”
“... You know, I've spent most of my life with a basic dislike of police - for one reason or another. I find it very odd that I've met, under such extraordinary circumstances, one I can respect and be attracted to at the same time.”Roarke to Eve
“I kind of like when you carry me. Makes me all wobbly inside. Then I feel stupid about it after.”Eve Dallas
“Roarke, what's going on here?" "Lieutenant." He leaned forward, touched his lips to hers. "Indications are we're having a romance.”Eve Dallas, Roarke
“I like your style, Lieutenant Dallas. I like it a lot. And by the way, I don't think I'm in love with you anymore. I know I am.”Roarke to Eve
“You've got great hands. I love when you touch me. Nobody ever touched me like that. Did I tell you?" "No." And he doubted she'd remember she was telling him now. He'd make sure to remind her. "And you're so pretty. So pretty." she repeated, lifting a bleeding hand to his face. "I keep wondering what you're doing here.”Roarke, Eve Dallas
“You don't really think we're going to make anything out of this, do you? Roarke and the cop?" "I guess we'll have to find out.”Roarke, Eve Dallas
““You got a button fetish Roarke?”“I’ve been carrying this around like a schoolboy carries a lock of his sweetheart’s hair.”Her eyes came back to his, and something sweet moved through her. Sweeter yet as she could see he was embarrassed.“That’s weird.”“I thought so, myself.” But he slipped the button back in his pocket. “Do you know what else I think, Eve?”“I don’t have a clue.”“I think I’m in love with you.””Eve Dallas, Roarke
“"The commander was silent for a moment. Then, as if he'd just remembered it was a fully secured line, he snorted: 'Fuck the chief. Good eye, Dallas ' "”Whitney
“Look,pal, I haven't been twistng Roarke's arm to get him to spend his valuable time with me. So why don't you pull the stick out of your ass and tell me why you act like I'm some sort of embarrassing rodent whenever I show up”Eve to Summerset
