Emergency Room Doctor: I tell you what, kids, it's, uh, odd thing here. Your wrist, uh, far as I can tell, is, uh, fractured in three places. Uh, and you've shattered, uh, two vertebrae, though I can't be certain without an X-ray... The bone protrusion through the skin - that's not a good sign. You're body temperature is below 80, and your, your, your heart's stopped beating.

Madeline Ashton: Drink it!
Helen: You have to!
Madeline Ashton: We need you!
[Ernest lets go]

Lisle Von Rhuman: [Lisle is about to give Madeline a potion that grants eternal youth and beauty] But you must make me a promise. The secret that we share must never become public. You may continue your career for ten years. Ten years of perfect, unchanged beauty. But at the end of that time, before people start to become suspicious, you have to disappear from public view forever. You can retire, you can stage your own phony death, or... as one of my clients simply said, I want to be alone.
Madeline Ashton: No. She...
Lisle Von Rhuman: [Lisle nods]

Madeline Ashton: Who cares how I played? I won!
Ernest Menville: I'll just be upstairs...
Helen: That's 'cause you could raise your legs higher than anyone.

Madeline Ashton: You know what this is? This is simply a question of, uh, maintenance! Yeah, this is upkeep. We just have to be very careful with ourselves. We have to take care of each other. I'll paint your ass; you paint mine.

[last lines]
Madeline Ashton: Has that ever worked? When you ask me where I last saw something?
Helen: Yes.
Madeline Ashton: When?
Helen: When you lost your index finger.
Madeline Ashton: I didn't lose it, it broke off.
Helen: That's because you cracked your knuckles all the time...
[slipping on the can of spray paint they both crash down the steps]
Helen: Help me!
Madeline Ashton: [now in pieces] Do you remember where you parked the car?
