Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) Poster

Lon Chaney Jr.: Lawrence Talbot



  • Larry Talbot : Have you seen Chick Young or Wilbur Grey?

    Waiter : Seen 'em? I don't even know them.

  • Chick Young : What's the matter?

    Larry Talbot : I know you'll think I'm crazy, but... in a half-an-hour the moon will rise and I'll turn into a wolf.

    Wilbur Grey : You and 20 million other guys!

  • Larry Talbot : Soon the moon will rise. I've taken the room across the hall; here's the key, lock me in.

    Wilbur Grey : Lock you in?

    Larry Talbot : Yes, please. Hurry.

    [to Chick] 

    Wilbur Grey : He's scared too.

  • Chick Young : Why don't you get down to the police station and tell them you know the story of Dracula and Monster they'd be very interested.

    Larry Talbot : I can't do that because then I'd have to tell them who I am and how I know what I know.

  • Wilbur Grey : I've got a date. In fact I've got two dates.

    Larry Talbot : But you and I 'have a date with destiny'.

    Wilbur Grey : Let Chick go with Destiny.

  • Larry Talbot : I just got a line on Dracula and the Monster. A certain Dr. Lajos has been receiving a lot of electrical equipment - just the type necessary to revive the Monster.

    Wilbur Grey : So what? I'm way out on an island. I got my own problems.

    Larry Talbot : Yes, but listen... I believe you're in the house of Dracula right now!

  • Larry Talbot : So! We meet again, Count Dracula.

    Dracula : Dracula?

    Wilbur Grey : Yes. That's who he says you are.

    Dracula : Oh. My costume perhaps?

    Chick Young : [jokingly]  No. Talbot here thinks you're the real thing.

    Wilbur Grey : Uh-huh. Right out of McDougal's House of Horrors.

    Dracula : What an odd hallucination. But, the human mind is often inflamed with strange complexes. I suggest you consult your physician, Mr. Talbot.

    Chick Young : [referring to Wilbur]  And take him along with you, please.

  • Dr. Lejos/Dracula : Miss Raymond, would you honor me with a dance?

    Larry Talbot : No, I warn you, he is Count Dracula.

    Joan Raymond : How interesting. Tell me more.

    Dr. Lejos/Dracula : Let "me" tell you, while we dance. Pardon me, Mr. Talbot.

  • Larry Talbot : [gives Wilbur a key]  Lock me in, and no matter what you hear or what you might think, don't let me out!

  • Wilbur Grey : Mr. Talbot, and I thought you were such a nice man too. Look at you, you're a mess.

    Larry Talbot : Last night I went through another one of my horrible experiences. Many years ago I was bitten by a werewolf. Now, whenever the full moon rises I turn into a wolf myself.

    Wilbur Grey : Oh pal. That's all right; I'm sort of a wolf myself.

  • Larry Talbot : I know you'll think I'm crazy, but in a half an hour the moon will rise and I'll turn into a wolf.

    Wilbur : You and twenty million other guys.

    Larry Talbot : [slamming Wilbur into a locker with Chick going in behind him]  Listen! I might tear you limb from limb!

    Wilbur : [turning to Chick in the locker]  Is that serious?

    Chick Young : He'll murder ya!

    Wilbur : [turns to Talbot]  That's serious.
