There's no escape... from his FIEND'S PARADISE of torture!  (taglines)


Jackson: Did you ever hear of a man named Steven Danel?
Mark Sheldon: I don't think so.
Jackson: Well, Danel is our man. Lincoln freed the slaves. Mr. Danel is back in the trade and doing very well at it.

Stephen Danel: I've been away for a long time. You should be very glad to see me.
Lorraine Danel: I hate the sight of you!
Stephen Danel: I know that. Lorraine, you have been in Mr. Smith's arms. Nothing like that must ever happen again, it embarrasses me. You're my wife, and he's a murderer.
Lorraine Danel: And what are you?
Stephen Danel: I'm your husband. [Takes a jewelry box from his pocket] Lorraine, remember this stone?
Lorraine Danel: You can't bribe me with that!
Stephen Danel: Why should I bribe you?
Lorraine Danel: You've tried everything else and failed. No matter what you do, you'll always fail!
Stephen Danel: I've never failed and I never will fail.
Lorraine Danel: I won't wear that! You can't make me!
Stephen Danel: Of course you will. [Puts necklace on her] So Mr. Smith approves of my taste, huh? There's only one thing Mr. Smith doesn't know. What I own I keep. But he'll learn. So will you.
