The translated speech by Hunyak is: "How did I find myself here? They say my famous lover (neighbor?) held down my husband and I cut his head off. But it's not true. I am innocent. I don't know why Uncle Sam says I did it. I tried to explain at the police station but they didn't understand." The original, in Hungarian: "Mit keresek én itt? Azt mondják, a híres lakóm lefogta a férjem, én meg lecsaptam a fejét. De nem igaz. Én ártatlan vagyok. Nem tudom, miért mondja Uncle Sam, hogy én voltam. Próbáltam a rendõrségen megmagyarázni, de nem értették meg."

When Velma is in her dressing room getting ready to go onstage she opens her suitcase with clean hands. She rifles through it to get her gun which is wrapped in a bloody handkerchief, she then turns to a mirror and her hands are bloody as well much too bloody to have picked it up off the handkerchief. Also the blood did not wear off onto the faucet when she was washing her hands.
Dedicated to Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, and Robert Fryer
