A History of Violence (2005)
[Mr. Fogarty tells Edie that her husband's real name is Joey Cusack]
Edie Stall: My husband does not know you. He wouldn't know you, somebody like you.
Carl Fogarty: Oh, he knows Carl Fogarty, all right. He knows me intimately. See?
Carl Fogarty: [Mr. Fogarty points to his blind left eye] This isn't a completely dead eye. It still works a bit. The problem is, the only thing I can see with it is Joey Cusack. And it can see right through him. Right through your husband, Edie. I see what's inside him, what makes him tick. He's still the same guy.
Edie Stall: No.
Carl Fogarty: He's still crazy fuckin' Joey. And you know it, don't you?
Edie Stall: I know that my husband is Tom Stall. That's what I know.

[Tom talks to Edie in bed after making love to her]
Edie Stall: What is it? Huh?
Tom Stall: I remember the moment I knew you were in love with me. I saw it in your eyes. I can still see it.
Edie Stall: Of course you can. I still love you.
Tom Stall: I'm the luckiest son-of-a-bitch alive.
Edie Stall: You are the best man I've ever known. There is no luck involved.

[Edie asks Tom for the truth about if he's Joey Cusack]
Tom Stall: Edie. Honey, are you okay?
Edie Stall: Tell me the truth.
Tom Stall: The truth?
Edie Stall: Please, you can do that, can't you? You can do that, can't you, please?
Tom Stall: What do you think you heard?
Edie Stall: It's not what I heard. It's what I saw. I saw Joey. I saw you turn into Joey right before my eyes. I saw a killer - The one Fogarty warned me about. You did kill men back in Philly, didn't you? Did you do it for money, or did you do it because you enjoyed it?
Tom Stall: Joey did, both. I didn't - Tom Stall didn't.

Sheriff Sam Carney: Charles Roarke, Philadelphia. Indicted on three counts of murder. Frank Mulligan, out of New York, indicted on one count of murder. Questioned in relation to dozens of acts of violence that you don't want to hear about. Both men work for Carl Fogarty. That's the fella with the eye. He spent 15 years in prison on several counts of assault. He's suspected in half a dozen murders, and more disappearances. Tom, these guys are organized crime from the East Coast. Now, they're the real thing. They're bad men. I have to ask you a question...
Edie Stall: Jesus. Jesus, honey.
Sheriff Sam Carney: I have to ask you a question. Are you in some kind of witness protection plan?

[Mr. Fogarty talks to Edie out side the toy store]

Carl Fogarty: No, no, Mrs. Stall, you can't. I thank you for your time. You have an enchanting daughter. And Mrs. Stall... don't forget your shoes.
[as Edie walks back barefoot to the shoe store]

Tom Stall: I never expected to see Joey again.
