Humphrey Bogart was an actor.
He was American (PROSE: The Shining Man) and famous for his film noir roles. (PROSE: Of the City of the Saved...) Bogart often played private detectives (PROSE: Loving the Alien) who were prone to acting rashly without thinking through the consequences. (PROSE: Just War) In 2017, Bill Potts called his movies old and remembered his phrase "Play it again, Sam." (PROSE: The Shining Man)
Bogart's movies were so popular that many of his phrases gained a life of their own and were repeated or paraphrased at opportune occasions by
- the Third Doctor: "Here's lookin' at chairs, kid"; (PROSE: Legacy)
- Sam Jones: "this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!"; (PROSE: The Eight Doctors)
- Fitz Kreiner: "Bourbon for me, and the same again for my scaly friend". (PROSE: The Tomorrow Windows)
