Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes to Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson in the last scene of Sherlock Holmes Faces Death:

There’s new spirit abroad in the land.

The old days of grab and greed are on their way out.

We’re beginning to think of what we owe the other fellow, not just of what we’re compelled to give him.

Time’s coming, Watson, when we shan’t be able to fill our bellies in comfort while other folk go hungry or sleep in warm beds while others shiver in the cold, when we shan’t be able to kneel and thank God for blessings before our shining altars while men anywhere are kneeling under either physical or spiritual subjection.

That certainly worked out well.
