Never too early, never too late

From Sleeping Car to Trieste (dir. John Paddy Carstairs, 1948). In the dining car, Tom Bishop (David Tomlinson) to Zurta (Albert Lieven):

“Won’t you join me in a Scotch?”

“No, thank you, it’s rather early in the day for me.”

“It’s never too early for a Scotch. Never too late either.”
No, it is too early. Ask me in another fourteen hours, before it’s too late.

It’s neither too early nor too late to board Sleeping Car to Trieste, which is waiting at the station right now.
