[Olivia visits Alfred Borden in his workshop. Bernard Fallon is there too
] Olivia Wenscombe
: I'm here to give your show what's still missing. Alfred Borden
: Yeah? What might that be? Olivia Wenscombe

: I was just saying that; weren't I, Bernard? Woman's touch.
: [referring to Angier
] He wants me to come work for you and steal your secrets. Alfred Borden
: What does he need my secrets for? His trick is top-notch. He vanishes, and then he reappears instantly on the other side of the stage - mute, overweight, and unless I'm mistaken, very drunk. It's astonishing, how does he do it?
: Why would he trust me? Robert Angier
: Because you're going to tell him the truth.

: How does he do it? Cutter
: He uses a double. Robert Angier
: No, no, no, no. It's too simple. This is a complex illusion. Cutter
: You only say that because you don't know the method. It's a double that comes out of the other end, I promise you. Robert Angier
: I've seen the show three times now, Mr. Cutter, and the prestige is the same man coming out of the second box. Cutter
: No, it's not. Olivia Wenscombe
: It's the same man. He wears gloves to hide his fingers, but if you look closely you can tell.
