Wait Until Dark (1967)
Roat: Did you know they wanted to kill me? I did. I knew even before they did. They were awful amateurs, and that's why you saw through them.
Susy Hendrix: I saw through you too.
Roat: No, not all the way, Suzy. Even now, not all the way. The lovely thing was the way I let them set it all up. All that silliness of meeting in the parking lot, the whole thing, they had comic book minds. So, I let them do it their way, right up to the very end. And then, topsy-turvy. Me topsy and them turvy.

Mike Talman: Damn it, you act as if you're in kindergarten! This is the big bad world, full of mean people, where nasty things happen!
Susy Hendrix: Now you tell me.

Susy Hendrix: Bye, dope.
Sam Hendrix: Bye, dope.

Susy Hendrix: Mr. Roat, are you looking at me?

Susy Hendrix: Sam, are you looking at me?
Sam Hendrix: Yes.
[Susy sticks her tongue out at him]

Susy Hendrix: Sam, are you there?
[pause]
Susy Hendrix: No, Susy, I'm not here.

Sam Hendrix: [Susy calls his studio] Hendrix here.
Susy Hendrix: [mocking his tone] Hendrix here too.

Sam Hendrix: Susy, is that you?
Susy Hendrix: No, Batman!

Susy Hendrix: Do I have to be the world champion blind lady?
Sam Hendrix: Yes!
Susy Hendrix: [turns around] Then I will be. I'll be everything you want me to be.
Sam Hendrix: I don't want you to be anything other than Susy.

Susy Hendrix: Gloria, I know you're there!

Susy Hendrix: [trying to find the refrigerator plug] Where is it? Where is it? OH GOD!

Susy Hendrix: [trembling] All right, all right you can have it... you can have the doll! I'll give it to you... if you'll... if you'll just go and... and...
Roat: Yes, Susy?
Susy Hendrix: Not hurt me.
Roat: Say please.
Susy Hendrix: Please.
Roat: No, that's not quite it... say: "please may I give you the doll?"
Susy Hendrix: Please may I give you the doll?
Roat: You may.

Susy Hendrix: Oh you must be so bored with me, everytime you come in here, I'm in absolute panic.

Susy Hendrix: Now... the first thing we have to do is stay calm.
Gloria: I am calm, Susy.
Susy Hendrix: Yes, I know you are, I really know. It's the best thing I've ever heard.
Gloria: Are they detectives?
Susy Hendrix: No, honey, they're not detectives. They're sure not detectives.
[pauses]
Susy Hendrix: The one out on the street, can I get by him?
Gloria: Not without him seeing you.
Susy Hendrix: Then I have to stay here.

Roat: Now all the children have gone to bed, and we can talk.
Susy Hendrix: What are you going to do with that gasoline?
Roat: Well you just guess.
[lights newspaper on fire]
Roat: Now guess!
Susy Hendrix: No! Please, no! Alright!
Roat: I thought that would save time.
Susy Hendrix: I'll get you the doll!
Roat: Oh that's a good girl, go right to the head of the class.
Susy Hendrix: [trips and falls on top of Mike's body] Mike!
[Roat pulls a chair up from behind, startling her]
Roat: It's just a chair, Susy, so you can sit down.

Shatner: Hi, Susy. Hey.
Susy Hendrix: Hi, Shatner.
Shatner: Let me help you with that mess.
Susy Hendrix: Ah, you're a lovely cavalier, only don't tell Sam you helped me. I'm supposed to be learning total self-sufficiency.

Susy Hendrix: Don't let it get you down. Have a good weekend. And on Monday we'll form a tenants committee or something jazzy like that.
Shatner: Some committee. Me, you, Sam, Gloria, and her mother. Ah, well. Ciao.
Susy Hendrix: Ciao.

Susy Hendrix: Who's that?

Mike Talman: You're a good, strong lady, Susy Hendrix.
Susy Hendrix: World's Champion blind lady.
Mike Talman: Oh, yeah, you're all that.

[last lines]
Sam Hendrix: You're doing fine, just fine!
Susy Hendrix: [crying joyfully] Oh! Sammy!

Susy Hendrix: You know there was a murder around here last night? They found the body this morning. A lady from Scarsdale. I heard it on the radio.
Sam Hendrix: So?
Susy Hendrix: What if I get chopped in little pieces and dumped in the river? Little tiny pieces that nobody could possibly recognize as having been a poor defenseless, little blind lady whose husband was off in Asbury Park. You're not listening, Sammy.
Sam Hendrix: Sure I am. Why don't we get some light around here? They're always finding bodies in New York.
Susy Hendrix: Not in the parking lot practically next door, they don't.
Sam Hendrix: You're making it up, Susy.
Susy Hendrix: No, I'm not. I promise. I told you I heard it on the radio. Really, I did.
Sam Hendrix: Come on Susy.
Susy Hendrix: [pause] The police don't have the first notion who do it. Pretty spooky, don't you think, Sammy?
Sam Hendrix: Tell you what I think. I think it's a ploy to make me stay home.
Susy Hendrix: Well, there was a murdered woman found from Scarsdale and that's a true fact.
Sam Hendrix: And you're afraid for your life, that's a true fact?
Susy Hendrix: No, but it was worth a try.

Susy Hendrix: Come. Get up on a chair and look out the window. There's a police car out there. Can you see the face of the man inside of it?
Gloria: There's no police car.
Susy Hendrix: Are you sure?
Gloria: Yeah, I'm sure.
Susy Hendrix: There's no car out there?
Gloria: Well, yes there is. It's a kind of squatty truck. Right next to the phone booth.
Susy Hendrix: Phone booth? Is there anyone inside the truck?
Gloria: Well, there's a man standing near it.
Susy Hendrix: Is it Mr. Roat? The man who was here when you brought the groceries?
Gloria: I don't think so. Susy, he's coming this way!

Susy Hendrix: [Upon discovering the doll's whereabouts] You had it?
Gloria: I was only borrowing...
Susy Hendrix: Gloria, quick, we've got to hide it. Where is it? Give it to me.
Gloria: Under your feet. I was only borrowing it, really. That's why I brought it back.
Susy Hendrix: Where are we going to put it? In the washing machine. Come, help me.

Susy Hendrix: Gloria?
Gloria: Yeah?
Susy Hendrix: How would you like to do something difficult and terribly dangerous?
Gloria: I'd love it!

Mike Talman: The doll, Susy. Where is it? Where did you find it?
Susy Hendrix: Well that's the silly part, Mike. I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier. I should've remembered ages ago.
Mike Talman: That doesn't matter. Where is it?
[behind Mike, Roat and Carlino silently walk into the apartment]
Susy Hendrix: You'll think I'm such a fool when I tell you.
Mike Talman: Look, Susy, don't complicate things. Just give me the doll, and then Sam will be safe.
Susy Hendrix: You're right, that's what's important. If anything happened to Sam...
Mike Talman: Susy, where's the doll?
Susy Hendrix: I'll get it for you. Would you give me the key ring that's on the nail by the ice box?

Susy Hendrix: You wait here, Mike. I'll be right back.
Mike Talman: [grabs her from running into Roat and Carlino still standing sliently by the front door] Wait a minute! Where are you going?
Susy Hendrix: To the studio. To Sam's studio. That's where it is.
Mike Talman: How do you know the doll's at his studio?
Susy Hendrix: Gloria just told me. You know, the little girl with the groceries. She went over there earlier today to do an errand for Sam, and she saw it. And heard it. It played a little tune.
Mike Talman: Are you sure about this?
Susy Hendrix: Yes, positive. If it hadn't been for that awful Sgt. Carlino hounding me, I could've told you earlier.
[Mike looks behind Suzy at Carlino and Roat still standing silently in which Roat mouths silently that Suzy stays while they go get it]
Mike Talman: Okay, Susy, fine. I'll go get it. Where's the studio?
Susy Hendrix: Just two blocks away. 78 West Eighth Street. It's on the top floor. And the desk is in the far corner, away from the windows. It's a big old thing with a roller top. You know the type I mean, with cubbyholes and pigeonholes and...
Mike Talman: Yeah, I know the kind you mean.
Susy Hendrix: It's in the left hand drawer, the doll. Gloria said so.
Mike Talman: Susy, I'm gonna ask you once more and this is no time for mistakes. Are you sure the little girl saw the doll at Sam's studio? Are you sure this is all true?
Susy Hendrix: I'm saving my husband's life, aren't I Mike?
Mike Talman: [walks out with Carlino and Roat] I'll be right back. You stay put. Make yourself a cup of hot coffee or something.
Susy Hendrix: Whatever you say, Mike.

Mike Talman: All right, how long have you known? When did you figure it out about me?
Susy Hendrix: You've been to Sam's studio?
Mike Talman: Yeah, that's right.
Susy Hendrix: And there was no doll?
Mike Talman: More fun still, there wasn't even a desk.
Susy Hendrix: Poor Sam. He really should have a desk.

Susy Hendrix: But I do wish I could do things. You know, important things, like
[sigh]
Susy Hendrix: cook a souffle, or pick a necktie, or choose the wallpaper for the bedroom. You know.

Susy Hendrix: [sending her on dangerous mission] As soon as your safe, I'll call the police.
Gloria: Okay. Gee, I wish something like this would happen every day...


Wait Until Dark (1982) (TV)
Suzy Hendrix: I won't give it to you.
Roat: "I won't give it to you"? "I won't give it to you." You remind me of somebody else who said that! Only she said..."I don't know where it is! I don't know! I don't KNOW I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW!"

Roat: Oh, Suzy! You don't have to be ashamed. Everybody's frightened of something, I... ooooooo! I have gasoline here! Gasoline. Hmm? Gasoline. This place will go up like a matchbox! The big question, Suzy, is do you want to be outside in the street? Or locked in there with Mike? It's up to you. So, will you give it to me now?
Suzy Hendrix: No.
Roat: 'I won't give it to you'. 'I don't know!'. 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know I don't know I don't know'. THEN, as it always happens, finally something seemed to snap. Ohhh, yes. And she told me everything she knew. As it turns out, she didn't know where it was, but... she told me everything she could! At last, she wanted to tell me, but, like her, you won't stop at that, will you, Suzy? Hmmm? No! After I'd finished 'questioning' her, she went on, and she told me other things. Little, useful things that just might come in handy, hmm? And then she told me OTHER things. Things I didn't even want to know. Little, intimate things about herself, and Mike, and Carlino... and I said 'Now that's enough, Suzy. That's enough I don't want to know any more' but she went ON AND ON AND ON AND ON... and then finally, she was dead. Now, I'm not going to ask you for it again, Suzy, so when you want to give it to me, you have to tell me. Will you go in there, hmm? Shall I HELP you, Suzy...
[Suzy hurls a bowl of hypo into Roat's face]

Roat: Now... what was it you wanted to say to me?
Suzy Hendrix: I'll give you the doll. If you'll just go and leave us alone.
Roat: You have to say 'Please may I give you the doll'.
Suzy Hendrix: PLEASE may I give you the doll?
Roat: You may!

Suzy Hendrix: [Suzy is trying to make her apartment completely dark] Can you see me moving?
Gloria: Yes, just.
Suzy Hendrix: There must be a light coming from somewhere, where is it coming from?
Gloria: From under the door at the top of the stairs.
Suzy Hendrix: Hell! OK, wait, There's a broom in the spare closet. Go out in the hall and smash every light you can see, just go until you can't see anything.
Gloria: WILL DO, ha ha...
[she does]
Gloria: All out!
Suzy Hendrix: Close the door. Now, can you see anything?
Gloria: Nothing at all.
Suzy Hendrix: All dark?
Gloria: Yes.
Suzy Hendrix: Good! OK, off you go then, know what to do?
Gloria: Asbury Park, and tell Sam everything!
Suzy Hendrix: Lock this door, check that the street door is locked, then go out the back way and run until you find a taxi!
Gloria: Bye, Suzy...
Suzy Hendrix: Gloria? I don't know anyone who could do this as well as you.
Gloria: Oh boy, I wish a thing like this would happen every day, HA HA!
