Johnnie Aysgarth: You thought I was going to kiss you, didn't you?
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: Weren't you?
Johnnie Aysgarth: Of course not. I was merely reaching around you, trying to fix your hair.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: What's wrong with my hair?
Johnnie Aysgarth: Well, I'm glad you asked me that. It would've been extremely discourteous for me to bring the subject up. Your hair's all wrong. It has such wonderful possibilities that I, well, I got excited. For the moment I became a, a passionate hairdresser.
[Lina starts to button her blouse]
Johnnie Aysgarth: Don't do that.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: Why not?
Johnnie Aysgarth: Because your ucipital mapilary is quite beautiful.
[Johnnie and Lina are facing a large portrait of her father]
Johnnie Aysgarth: He doesn't like me.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: I know.
Johnnie Aysgarth: He doesn't trust me from here to there. [Speaking to portrait] Do you? Well, you're right. I can only bring her unhappiness. Well, warn her. Speak up, man. It's your last chance. [To Lina] Hear him?
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: Very distinctly.
Johnnie Aysgarth: He's not exaggerating a thing, dear. It's all true, every word he isn't saying.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: I love him, father.
Johnnie Aysgarth: Did you see him jump?
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: I did.
Johnnie Aysgarth: Well, watch this one. [Speaking to portrait] Sir, I have the honor of asking for your daughter's hand in marriage. Well, what do you say to that? [He begins tapping on the portrait and it falls off the wall] My oh my. You heard him that time, didn't you?
[Lina asks Johnnie how he intends to support them]
Johnnie Aysgarth: Well, if the worst comes to the worst and there's no other way out, I'll have to...
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: What?
Johnnie Aysgarth: Borrow some more.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: When he enticed his victim across the footbridge, knowing that the bridge has been sawn through...
Isobel Sedbusk: He also knew that his victim couldn't swim. Don't forget that.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: Well, what I want to know is this. Would you call that an actual murder?
Isobel Sedbusk: Well, from a moral standpoint there's no question at all. It is murder.
Isobel Sedbusk: Imagine a substance in daily use everywhere. Anyone can lay his hands on it, and within a minute after taking, the victim's beautifully out of the way. Mind you, it's undetectable after death.
Lina McLaidlaw Aysgarth: Is whatever it is, painful?
Isobel Sedbusk: Oh, not in the least. In fact I should think it'd be a most pleasant death.
Photographer: I wonder if I could have just a little bit more of your smile?
Johnnie Aysgarth: Oh, now, not at this hour of the morning.
