: It's at night that interesting things happen. What kind of work do you do at night, Mr. Slade? Slade
: I doubt if you'd be interested. Lily Bonner
: Do you just work? Slade
: Sometimes I walk close by the river. The river is like liquid night flowing peacefully out to infinity.
: Is there anything I can do? Slade
: We must each live with ourselves.
: Yes, I will tell you. My mother was an actress. She was one of the most angelically beautiful women who ever lived, exquisitely graceful, talented, and captivating. I loved her deeply... deeply. She had the face of heaven and the wretched heart of Jezebel. For every aspect of beauty she possessed, she contained a double portion of evil. I hated her! Lily Bonner
: But I thought you said you loved her? Slade
: I can love the beauty and hate the evil. Didn't you know that, Miss Bonner?
: [In desperation
] I need you Lily! Only you can save me!
: [Referring to the death masks of killers in the black museum
] You treat them like trophies... like a stuffed elk head mounted over the fireplace. Insp. Paul Warwick
: Yes, a little, but these were more dangerous than an elk. Man unfortunately is the most dangerous of all beasts. Slade
: Man is not beast. Insp. Paul Warwick
: Murderers are beasts.
: You wouldn't think that anyone could hate a thing and love it too. Kitty Langley
: You can't love and hate at the same time. Slade
: You can! And it's a problem then...
: Haven't you enough men at your feet already?
: It's such lovely women as you who drag men down!
