The Man: [James enters the diner, walks to the window-booth at the end, and takes a seat across the table from The Man] You're late.
James: I, umm...
The Man: [gruffly] The appointment was eleven.
James: I didn't know if I was coming.
The Man: Picked a girl?
The Man: Tell me about her. James - the details!
James: I don't really want to.
The Man: How old? How *old* is the girl?
James: Young. She's four - fourish.
The Man: What was she wearing - when you first saw her - when you chose her?
Jenny: [seated at the booth] I heard you can do things.
The Man: I create opportunities for people to do things.
Jenny: You make things happen - like magic.
The Man: What do you want, Jenny?
Jenny: I want to be prettier.
Willem: [seated at the booth] I don't know that I believe you.
The Man: That's understandable - but not my problem.
Willem: Give me something - a token of proof or something.
The Man: Start. See what happens.
Mrs. Tyler: [seated at the booth] Do you make everyone who comes to you hurt someone?
The Man: No - only some.
The Man: [seated at the booth] Well, perhaps I can help.
Melody: What do I have to do?
The Man: I offer you a task - you do the task - you get what you want.
Allen: [seated at the booth] I did it. I did 'the thing'. So now what? How do we wrap this up?
The Man: You give me the details.
The Man: [crossly] We had a deal, Detective.
