Quotes from

Richard Mason: What're you doing here? What've you got to do with all of this?
Dr. Mark Hamilton: I caught the one slip you made. The rose. You said Kathryn was wearing it the last time you saw her.
Richard Mason: She was! It was pinned to her coat.
Dr. Mark Hamilton: I gave her that rose when she stopped at my house. A rose you couldn't have seen when you were supposed to be helpless at home.


Kathryn Mason: I'm not going to the party.
Richard Mason: Oh yes you are. It's our fifth anniversary, you wouldn't miss it for anything. You'll go and I'll go like thousands of others go and laugh at the rest of them.


Dr. Mark Hamilton: [on unsolved murder and perfect crime] Laws of chance are overwhelmingly against it, so are the laws of human nature. You see a murderer's whole safety depends upon a complication of lies. If he had no motive, no access, if his alibi is perfect, even if he feels no remorse, think of the strain he endures in knowing one error would be his undoing. That if he is forgetful enough to conflict one of his statements, his act of innocence is unconvincing in any details, if he so much as talks in his sleep.
