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!
