Farley Granger Quotes:

Harriette Sinton: [drunkenly putting her arm around him] Hey, I fit, don't I?
Joe Norson: Like a motorman's glove!


Anne Morton: How did you get him to do it?
Guy Haines: I get him to do it?
Anne Morton: Bruno Anthony. He killed Miriam, didn't he? It wasn't you, it was him.
Guy Haines: Yes...
Anne Morton: Tell me the truth, how did you get Mr. Anthony to do it?
Guy Haines: I didn't. He's a maniac. I met him three weeks ago on the train to Metcalf. We got to talking and he came up with this crazy idea about swapping murders. He does my murder, I do his.
Anne Morton: What do you mean "your murder"?
Guy Haines: He read all about me in the newspapers and magazines. He knew about me, Miriam, and you. He told me that if he were to get rid of Miriam so I would be free to marry you, I should kill his father so he could be free of him.
Anne Morton: But you should have known that he was only talking nonsense.
Guy Haines: But he wasn't! And now he's after me to see I fulfill my end. Now, a lunatic wants me to kill his father.
Anne Morton: Incredible.
Guy Haines: I know. I wouldn't have given it a second though had I known about what he had planned and done.
Anne Morton: Wait... you mean, you knew about Miriam this whole time?
Guy Haines: Since that very first night. He showed up at my place and gave me her glasses.
Anne Morton: Why didn't you call the police right away? Why didn't you turn Bruno in right then?
Guy Haines: And have the police say to me the exact same thing you just said? "Mr. Haines, how did you get him to do it?" Bruno will tell them that we planned it together... on the train.


Bruno Anthony: When's the wedding?
Guy Haines: The what?
Bruno Anthony: The wedding. It's in the papers.
Guy Haines: Well, it shouldn't be. Not unless they legalized bigamy overnight.
