Wendell Corey Quotes:

Lisa: You can't ignore the wife dissapearing, and the trunk, and the jewelery.

Lisa: So that's it? You're through with the case?
Lt. Doyle: There is no case to be solved. There never was.


Lt. Doyle: Lars Thorwald... is no more a murderer than I am.

Lisa: Like killing their wives?
Lt. Doyle: Get that idea out of your head. It will only lead you in the wrong direction.
