The Mummy's Hand (1940)
Andoheb: You are very beautiful... so beautiful I'm going to make you immortal. Like Kharis, you will live forever. What I can do for you I can do for myself. Neither time nor death can touch us. You and I together for eternity here in the Temple of Karnak. You shall be my high priestess.
Babe Jenson: Hey Steve, can a dame go crazy from being sawed in half too many times?
Steve Banning: What happened, Babe?
Babe Jenson: I was practicing my rock trick.
Steve Banning: Maybe next time you should practice on a pebble.
Babe Jenson: Little girls who play with guns get hurt.
Marta Solvani, Stage Name of Marta Sullivan: I'll get hurt?
[fires shots into the door]
Steve Banning: Those jackals are giving me goose pimples.
Babe Jenson: Aw they're giving me goose pimples on top of my goose pimples.
Marta Solvani, Stage Name of Marta Sullivan: Where do they live?
The Great Solvani, Stage Name of Tim Sullivan: Where do they live? Where do they live? Where do they live? Go in the window...I don't know.
The High Priest: For who shall defile the temples of the ancient gods, a cruel and violent death shall be his fate, and never shall his soul find rest unto eternity. Such is the curse of Amon-Ra, king of all the gods.
Andoheb: Tana leaves!
The High Priest: Bring three of them. Three of the leaves will make enough fluid to keep Kharis's heart beating. Once each night, during the cycle of the full moon, you will dissolve three tana leaves and give the fluid to Kharis.
[a jackal howls]
The High Priest: Children of the night, they howl about the Hill of the Seven Jackals when Kharis must be fed. Should unbelievers seek to desecrate the tomb of Ananka, you will use nine leaves each night to give life and movement to Kharis. Thus you will enable him to bring vengeance on the heads of those who try to enter.
Andoheb: Yes, master.
The High Priest: But never, for any reason, must you brew more than *nine* leaves at one time. Should Kharis obtain a large amount of the fluid, he would become an uncontrollable *monster*, a soulless demon with the desire to kill and kill.
