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.

00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:05.017
The laws of chance are overwhelmingly against it.
00:00:05.117 --> 00:00:06.647
And so are the laws of human nature.
00:00:06.984 --> 00:00:10.373
You see, a murderer's whole safety depends on a complication of lies.
00:00:10.956 --> 00:00:13.489
That he had not motive, no access. That his alibi is perfect.
00:00:13.087 --> 00:00:15.317
Even if he feels no remorse.
00:00:15.087 --> 00:00:19.478
Think of the strain he endures knowing that one error would be his undoing.
00:00:20.146 --> 00:00:23.688
That if he is forgetful enough to contradict one of his statements.
00:00:24.168 --> 00:00:26.953
If his act of innocence is unconvincing in any detail.
00:00:27.409 --> 00:00:29.999
If he so much as talks in his sleep.
00:00:33.778 --> 00:00:35.336
I wonder what's become of Evelyn.
00:00:38.752 --> 00:00:40.998
You know, that's probably the same moon they have back home.
00:00:41.601 --> 00:00:43.741
It looks better here somehow. - It is beautiful.
00:00:44.995 --> 00:00:45.768
Evelyn.
00:00:46.388 --> 00:00:48.831
Ever since you came back there's something I've wanted to ask you.
00:00:48.931 --> 00:00:50.776
It's been on my mind ever since you went away.
00:00:50.996 --> 00:00:53.003
In fact I didn't realise how much I wanted you here.
00:00:53.187 --> 00:00:55.004
Until you did go away. If you know what I mean.
00:00:55.275 --> 00:00:57.414
Yes Norman, I believe I know what you mean.
00:00:58.998 --> 00:00:59.002
I've been thinking.
00:00:59.608 --> 00:01:01.912
Although I'm pretty well set with my teaching at college.
00:01:02.543 --> 00:01:03.075
I have no background.
00:01:04.001 --> 00:01:06.358
No home life, if you know what I mean.
00:01:07.688 --> 00:01:09.148
I know this is all very sudden.
00:01:09.001 --> 00:01:10.218
No, Norman.
00:01:11.303 --> 00:01:13.955
I've had the feeling that you liked me for quite some time but I ..
00:01:14.012 --> 00:01:15.062
Don't you like me? - Yes.
00:01:16.702 --> 00:01:17.535
Yes, I do.
00:01:18.999 --> 00:01:19.241
What's the matter?
00:01:19.551 --> 00:01:21.001
Is there some other man? - No, of course not.
00:01:21.834 --> 00:01:22.941
Who would there be?
00:01:23.999 --> 00:01:24.994
I don't know.
00:01:24.505 --> 00:01:25.001
You say you like me, but ..
00:01:26.001 --> 00:01:28.001
Norman, please don't ask me to give you an answer right now.
00:01:29.741 --> 00:01:31.298
I'm so confused.
00:01:31.542 --> 00:01:33.273
I'd like to give you a reason but I can't.
00:01:34.996 --> 00:01:35.016
I can't explain it.
00:01:35.001 --> 00:01:36.097
Aren't you cold out here?
