: I won't leave this office without my money! Ben Horne
: Why do I sense that this isn't a negotiable position?
: Josie, this key unlocks my personal hotel safe. Now, in that safe, I have put together a fascinating dossier on you, my dear, and your late husband Andrew's little boat that went boom. So, you behave yourself, lady, or believe me when I say that I will bury you. Josie Packard
: That's a shame. Because if anything unfortunate were to happen to me, it would lead authorities to a certain safety deposit box in a bank in another city, inside of which there is enough evidence to lock you away for three lifetimes. They'll bury us side by side.
: [looks at the briefcase containing $90,000
] It's all here. Pretty generous, Josie. Sitting in that concrete box all that time, 90 grand seemed like all the money in creation. Kept me going. It's a funny thing. Back in the world, I don't know... it seems kind of light. Jocelyn Packard
: We had an agreement. Hank Jennings
: I've been going over this in my mind and... see, if you could follow my thinking, we're all born into life and we have a certain number of years to move and breathe and have our being. That's from a book on Oriental philosophy I read while I was in the joint. And maybe somebody somewhere knows how much time we have left in this world to live. I don't, do you? So, when a man like me gives up a certain portion of his life, 18 months for instance, how does he place a value on that time? 18 months, $90,000, what's that? Five thousand a month? Well, that's not bad if your going to live another 40 or 50 years. But what if you got another 20? Or ten? Or some unforeseen event was to kill you tomorrow? As in the case of the boating accident that killed your late husband, Andrew Packard? Or say you just got out of prison, where you went in for vehicular manslaughter as part of an agreement to avoid being implicated in the commission of a much greater crime. Murder. For which in fact you were responsible. But now there's this threat, this possible threat, that could be discovered. And in one stroke, five, 10, or even 15 more years of your life could be cut right out from underneath you. So I've been asking myself: "what does that do to the market value of 18 months?" Huh? Jocelyn Packard
: [more firm tone
] We had an agreement. Hank Jennings
: And we still do, sweetheart. Signed, sealed, and delivered. And I'm gonna take care of everything we agreed to with Catherine Martell and the sawmill. See, you want a lot for your money. And I want a lot for my time. You know there's a saying in the joint. It's not Oriental philosophy, but it has a similar kind of logic that appeals to my spiritual nature. Once you're in business with somebody... you're in business with them for life. Like a marriage. Til death do you part.

: Peter, push the plug.
Jocelyn 'Josie' Packard
: On top of the morning to you, Pete. Pete Martell
: Uh, no, Josie, the expression is "top of the morning." And it's just barely morning!
