Nora Prentiss: Well, Doc, thanks for the cigarette and the drink. In fact, thanks for everything.
Dr. Richard Talbot: Oh, that's quite all right. Good night.
Nora Prentiss: Uh, just a minute. How much do I owe you?
Dr. Richard Talbot: Oh, I'll send you a bill.
Nora Prentiss: Got the name?
Dr. Richard Talbot: Prentiss. Nora Prentiss.
Nora Prentiss: Don't forget.
Dr. Richard Talbot: I won't.
Nora Prentiss: By the way, you've been, uh, very patient with me. You may not have noticed, but I was a little fresh.
Dr. Richard Talbot: I noticed.
Nora Prentiss: I don't know why, but... something about you. Next time I'll be polite.
Dr. Richard Talbot: That's fine. Next time my bill won't be so large.
Nora Prentiss: [driver and cop looking at her legs] I've been examined already!
Police Lieutenant: I wish I knew what was in this note - or who burned it. Do you think he was being blackmailed?
Dr. Joel Merriam: [a bit taken aback] Blackmailed?
Police Lieutenant: Yes.
Dr. Joel Merriam: What would anybody have on him? He led such an exemplary life.
Police Lieutenant: That's the way a blackmailer works, doctor. He finds out something nobody else knows, and then sells it for a price.
Dr. Richard Talbot: I could never prove my innocence. You know that. They'd never believe me. If a man commits one crime, it's easy to suspect him of another. Besides, I am guilty of killing a man. I killed Richard Talbot.
Nora Prentiss: If there was only something I could do.
Dr. Richard Talbot: There is. Keep this to yourself. Never breathe a word of it to anyone. Promise.
Nora Prentiss: You can't ask me to go on living with a memory that I could have saved you and didn't. You can't do that.
Dr. Richard Talbot: If I can die remembering that, you can live remembering it.
