Dargent Peytraud: By the way, Doctor Alan. What did you dream about this afternoon? A woman in your arms? The sea at your doorstep? Nooooo! You dreamt of me and of the grave. I know because I was there. And I can be there every time you close your eyes. The pain I cause you, in the room upstairs, is nothing to the pain I can cause in your own mind. Remember that... Doctor Alan.

Dargent Peytraud: Did you know this woman, Marielle Duchamp, is a radical? So was her father. He was... misplaced. Did you know that?

Dennis Alan: No, I didn't know that.

Dargent Peytraud: So is this man... Christophe Durand.

Dennis Alan: Christophe who?

Dargent Peytraud: The man you met in the graveyard.

Dennis Alan: Graveyard? I don't know... what you're talking about.

Dargent Peytraud: This country lives on the edge, Doctor Alan. One weakness in the wrong place and over it goes right back into slavery again, just like with the French. The United States would like anarchy here, I'm sure. Well this isn't Grenada, Doctor Alan! I'm here now! There are people like me who'll make sure that doesn't happen. You'll remember that.
