Frank Bigelow: [Referring to Reynolds] You're mighty careful about the picture of a man you haven't heard from in months.

[Referring to a signature on the photo]

Frank Bigelow: What does the 'Ray' stand for?

Marla Rakubian: It was a pet name! Do you mind?

Frank Bigelow: It all sounds very cozy, Miss Rakubian! You and Reynolds call each other pet names while you make a sucker out of Philips!

Marla Rakubian: Philips made the deal because he wanted it!

Frank Bigelow: Yeah, I'll bet you weren't above using what it takes to make him want it! Who's paying for this trip?

Marla Rakubian: I am!

Frank Bigelow: Really? A first class trip to Buenos Aires on a model's salary? Don't make me laugh! Since you and Reynolds won't be seeing each other anymore, you don't mind if I keep this, do you?

[He folds the photo and puts it in his inside suit pocket]

Marla Rakubian: If I were a man, I'd punch your dirty face in!

Frank Bigelow: You know I really believe you would!

Frank Bigelow: Give it to me straight doc!

Dr. MacDonald: You won't feel to bad for a while... Then it will happen suddenly. A day, two days... a week at the most.

Frank Bigelow: [in a daze] A day?... Two days?...

Dr. MacDonald: There's nothing that can be done now. If it was caught in time, your stomach could have been washed out, but you've had it for some time now haven't you Bigelow?

Frank Bigelow: [still in a daze] I don't know!

Dr. MacDonald: [surprised] You don't know?

Frank Bigelow: No!

Dr. MacDonald: Don't you know how you got it?

Frank Bigelow: No!

Dr. MacDonald: This is no accident. Somebody knew how to handle that stuff.This poison is tasteless and odorless. The amount of alcohol in your body, you must have got it in liquor...

Frank Bigelow: I was drinking last night

Dr. MacDonald: I'll arrange for your admission to the hospital immediately. But I will have to notify the police first.

Frank Bigelow: Police?

Dr. MacDonald: This a case for homicide.

Frank Bigelow: Homocide?

Dr. MacDonald: I don't think you fully understand Bigelow... You've been murdered!
