Crow: Anyway, medical men die every day.
Inspector Trout: I'm aware of that sir.
Crow: Good. They're composed of the same flesh and blood as you and I.
Inspector Trout: I'm aware of that too sir. I happen to have seen rather a lot of their flesh and blood in the past few days.

Dr. Phibes: I will have killed nine times in my life, Dr. Vesalius; how many murders can be attributed to you?
Dr. Vesalius: None, for I did not kill your wife!
Dr. Phibes: No?
Dr. Vesalius: I tried to save her...
Dr. Phibes: With a knife in your hands? Doctor, I have no faith in your profession! I was told, after my crash that I would never speak again. The doctors were, of course, wrong, for as you see and can hear, I have used my knowledge of music and acoustics to re-create my voice!
Dr. Vesalius: You don't need to remind me of your ingenuity, Dr. Phibes... WHERE IS MY SON?

Dr. Vesalius: That still leaves the final curse.
Sgt. Schenley: Darkness.
Inspector Trout: Well he'll be working on it wherever he is.
