Foul Traffic in Dead Bodies (taglines)
Cabman John Gray
- I am a small man, a humble man. Being poor I have had to do much that I did not want to do. But so long as the great Dr McFarlane comes to my whistle, that long am I a man. If I have not that then I have nothing. Then I am only a cabman and a grave robber. You'll never get rid of me, Toddy.
- There was a dog that bothered me during the last job. People are so concerned about dogs.
- Dr. Wolfe 'Toddy' MacFarlane: Gray, I must be rid of you. You've become a cancer, a malignant evil cancer rotting my mind.
- Cabman John Gray: You've made a disease of me, eh, Toddy?
- Dr. Wolfe 'Toddy' MacFarlane: What is Gray to me? He's a man from whom I buy what I need when I need it. The rest is forgotten.
- Meg Camden: You may deny him, Toddy, but you'll not rid yourself of him by saying the devil's dead.
- Joseph: I know you kill people to sell bodies.
- Cabman John Gray: You say you came here of your own account. No-one sent you, no-one knows you're here?
- Joseph: Give me money or I tell the police that you murder the subjects.
- Cabman John Gray: Well, Joseph, you shall have money, why should you not? I don't suppose the great Dr MacFarlane is over lavish with his pay?
- Joseph: No.
