Victoria Winters: My name is Victoria Winters. Collinwood seems a thousand miles away tonight. Yet my only hope is that someone is driving from there to pick me up in Bangor and rescue me.
Sheriff George Patterson: You know, I suppose that it's all over town that Burke Devlin is trying to buy the Logansport cannery and that he's trying to get some of your key men away from you.
Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: Bad news travels faster than good.
Sheriff George Patterson: Well, there are a lot of people around town who would like to help you if they could. It'd be a sad day for Collinsport if anything happened to Collins Enterprises. It's the backbone of the town.
Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: I know. That's why my father was disappointed when I came along.
Sheriff George Patterson: How do you mean?
Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: He wanted a boy, of course.
Sheriff George Patterson: Oh, you've done right well, Mrs. Stoddard. He'd be proud of you.
Victoria Winters: Roger, I know so little about you. You know everything about me, not that there's so very much to know. Tell me, what do you want out of life?
Roger Collins: Well, right now, there are only two things I want very much.
Victoria Winters: What are they?
Roger Collins: I want someone to come through that door and rescue us from this dank and ill-smelling shack.
Victoria Winters: [laughs] There I agree with you. And what's the other one?
Roger Collins: I want you to leave Collinwood.
