Mike Hammer: What about your business partner. What's his name - Randall? What about him?... Well?
Carl Kunard: Well, naturally as my associate, he would stand to profit rather considerably by my death, but Lloyd has no money problems. He's a rather wealthy man in his own right.
Mike Hammer: Yeah, well with some guys, when it comes to money, enough is never enough.
Carl Kunard: I didn't think it was still in fashion for young wives to knock off their middle-aged husbands.
Mike Hammer: It's still being done in some counties.
Carl Kunard: Now don't get me wrong, Hammer. I asked you to come up here to find out who wants to murder me and that's exactly what I want you to do, but I'm positive there's no need to suspect my wife, or Lloyd for that matter. I'd stake my life on either one of them.
Mike Hammer: Well, you may be doing just that.
Mike Hammer: [narrating] Kunard added up to a regular joe. Maybe he wasn't playing it smart by refusing to offer up any suspects. I don't know, but I had to hand it to him. At least he wasn't like most of the squirrels who were usually ready to accuse everyone of mayhem - including their pet parakeet.
Larry Kunard: Why? Why? I gave you everything... anything you wanted!
Carl Kunard: You gave me nothing. Nothing! You don't know how to give; you just own - me, my mother - and what you can't own you break!
