Cabman John Gray: I am a small man, a humble man. Being poor I have had to do much that I did not want to do. But so long as the great Dr McFarlane comes to my whistle, that long am I a man. If I have not that then I have nothing. Then I am only a cabman and a grave robber. You'll never get rid of me, Toddy.

Mrs. Mary McBride: He'll not leave the grave - not since Wednesday last when we buried the lad.

Donald Fettes: Your son, ma'am? He must have been a fine boy for the wee dog to love him so.

Mrs. Mary McBride: A great kind lad he was - gentle with all things like Robbie. Now I can't get the dog to leave here. Perhaps it is for the best. I've not money enough to afford a grave watcher.

Donald Fettes: Not much danger here, ma'am, I wouldn't think - right here in the heart of Edinburgh.

Mrs. Mary McBride: They're uncommon bold, the grave robbers - and the daft doctors who drive them on.

Dr. Wolfe 'Toddy' MacFarlane: Don't call me by that confounded name.

Cabman John Gray: Toddy would like to do that all over my body.

Joseph: I know you kill people to sell bodies.

Cabman John Gray: You say you came here of your own account. No-one sent you, no-one knows you're here?

Joseph: No.
