Henry Packard:You just be out of your mind, Brent! I'm head of production at this studio!
John Brent:I'm sorry, Mr. Packard. You brought a lawsuit. You made accusations of illegal pressures. You created problems.
Henry Packard:This is my studio! I created Pantheon Pictures!
John Brent:Yes, but that was before you came to our organization for help with your money problems.
Henry Packard:So, you lent me some money. That doesn't give you the right to force me out.
John Brent:Oh, but it does. And now you're nothing but a troublesome minority stockholder. Mr. Shields doesn't like that.
