台词:

Ernie:Some of those junkies and winos from Broadway, they try to bed down in the lobby overnight.

Alex:Encourage them, Ernie. The theater was meant for the common man.

David:Wonderful! Broadway's favorite actor gets pneumonia! Oh, well, after those notices, I suppose I could use a cold shower.

[runs out with jacket over his head]

David:Don't be depressed then, Alex! You've got worse things coming! Like marriage!

Alex:It's essential they stay here, all of them. If even one of them walks out, it won't work.

Frank Heller:It may not work anyway.

Alex:You still think this is a mistake, don't you?

Frank Heller:Like I said before, Mr. Dennison; this is your show. I'm just here to watch.

Karen:Who's that?

Walter:Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Bumped into each other outside.

Lloyd:The difference is that Walter came in a limo and I had to take a bus.

Walter:[referring to Alex]Ah, he's being mysterious. Well, it's the playwright's prerogative... and it's the producer's prerogative to have a sweet roll.

Karen:You're being obsequious, Leo.

Leo:Okay, I'll stop if you tell me what it means.

Alex:Oh and by the way, it's something new for me; a mystery.

Walter:Good. They do well.

Alex:Unusual form, a mystery. You take the audience by the hand, and you lead them... in the wrong direction. They trust you, and you betray them! All in the name of surprise.

David:[Referring to the format of a mystery]All those characters are cardboard. I like... I like roles with flesh and blood!

Alex:I don't know about the flesh, David. But I can guarantee you the blood.

Lloyd:What are you going for? What's the point of the scene?

Alex:Well, the point, Lloyd, is that in a mystery, everyone must have a motive.

Walter:Alex, we've known each other for a long time, so I'm entitled to be blunt. Why are we here?

Alex:You know why, Walter. To read my new play.

Walter:It's not a play. It's just a bunch of unrelated scenes, all of them uncomfortably close to the truth.

David:The hell they are!

Alex:Might as well get to the point. Well, it's really very simple. When we finish here, we'll know something we didn't know before.

David:And what's that?

Alex:Which one of you killed Monica Welles.

Walter:The woman killed herself! Do you understand? Whether you want to believe it or not, she was depressed, and she jumped out of her bedroom window!

Alex:How can you be so certain, Walter? Were you there?

Alex:[to Lloyd]Permit me my element of surprise, Lloyd. In a mystery, the audience should never know what's coming next.

Lloyd:He certainly raked you over the coals.

Walter:Well, that makes two of us.

David:Three.

Leo:Great. Marvelous. Wonderful.

[to Karen]

Leo:We're next!

Alex:[to the group]Surely you don't want to miss the ending.

Lloyd:Now I get it. Don't you see what he's doing?

Leo:Now that you mention it... no.

Lloyd:Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2, a play within a play to catch his father's killer: "I have heard that guilty creatures sitting at a play, have by the very cunning of the scene, been struck so to the soul that presently they have proclaimed their malefactions."

Karen:"The play's the thing wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king." Right?

Walter:Well, now what?

Alex:Alibis, Walter.

Walter:I was wondering when you would get around to that.

Alex:I've established that you all had motives...

David:Like hell we had.

Alex:But motives are nullified by a legitimate alibi.

Walter:[to Frank]We all said a lot of things. None of them were true.

Walter:What are you talking about? Monica wasn't murdered. She committed suicide. And to suggest that one of us is involved...

Alex:It isn't a suggestion; it's a statement of fact.

Karen:They investigated, the police...

Alex:The police were wrong.

Walter:Alex! We all know you suffered a terrible loss. We understand your grief. But what you're doing here, it won't change anything. It won't bring her back.

Alex:Then you've nothing to lose by indulging me.

[first lines]

Ernie:Who's there? Who's out there? Is that you Mr. Dennison?

Alex:Hello, Ernie, how you been?

[last lines]

Karen:Alex, are you coming?

Alex:Save me a place.
