Based on the Raymond Chandler novel of the same name, Philip Marlowe is a hardboiled private eye who gets mixed up in a web of murder, blackmail, and sex.
Well, speaking of horses, I like to play them myself. But I like to see them work out a little first, see if they're front-runners or come from behind, find out what their hole-card is. What makes them run.
Find out mine?
I think so.
I'd say you don't like to be rated. You like to get out in front, open up a lead, take a little breather in the backstretch, and then come home free.
You don't like to be rated yourself.
I haven't met anyone yet that can do it. Any suggestions?
Well, I can't tell till I've seen you over a distance of ground. You've got a touch of class, but, uh...I don't know how... how far you can go.
A lot depends on who's in the saddle. Go ahead Marlowe, I like the way you work. In case you don't know it, you're doing all right.
There's one thing I can't figure out.
What makes me run?
