Dialogue[edit]

Det. Roberts: [Tommy Nelson is gone] How did he get out?
Lou Francis: Installments.
Det. Roberts: Installments?
Lou Francis: Yeah, he did a Gypsy Rose Lee, come here!
[they find Tommy's clothes lying about]
Lou Francis: That, that's all that's left of him.
Det. Roberts: Evidently Nelson changed clothes... what was he wearing when you last saw him?
Lou Francis: Air... nothing but air... and then he asked me how he looked.
Det. Roberts: Wearing air? What are you talking about?
Lou Francis: I went to shake his hand, his hand was gone, I looked up to speak to him, his head was gone. Then he took off his shirt, his body was gone, he took off his pants, his legs were gone! Then he spoke to me, I was gone.

Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: I know, you saw this man disappear into thin air. Do you always see things?
Lou Francis: Only when my eyes are open.
Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: Did you ever see somebody disappear before?
Lou Francis: Yes sir, I have.
Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: This may explain it, seeing things. When did this happen?
Lou Francis: One day me and my brother were walking down the street... my brother disappeared.
Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: Into thin air?
Lou Francis: No, into a man hole.
Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: How about voices? Do you ever hear strange voices?
'Lou Francis: Yes sir.
Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: Aha, and when do you hear these strange voices?
Lou Francis: When I get the wrong number on the telephone.
