00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:06.921
There it is, Walter. It's beginning to come apart at the seams already.
00:00:07.996 --> 00:00:09.715
Murder's never perfect. Always comes apart sooner or later.
00:00:09.799 --> 00:00:12.026
And when two people are involved, it's usually sooner.
00:00:12.343 --> 00:00:15.221
Now, we know the Dietrichson dame is in it, and a somebody else.
00:00:15.304 --> 00:00:17.306
Pretty soon we'll know who that somebody else is.
00:00:17.039 --> 00:00:20.268
He'll show. He's got to show. Sometime, somewhere, they've got to meet.
00:00:20.351 --> 00:00:21.602
Their emotions are all kicked up.
00:00:21.686 --> 00:00:25.106
Whether it's love or hate doesn't matter. They can't keep away from each other.
00:00:25.189 --> 00:00:27.065
They may think it's twice as safe because there are two of them.
00:00:27.733 --> 00:00:29.011
But it isn't twice as safe.
00:00:29.193 --> 00:00:32.363
It's 10 times twice as dangerous. They've committed a murder...
00:00:32.446 --> 00:00:34.573
and it's not like taking a trolley ride together...
00:00:34.657 --> 00:00:36.409
where they can get off at different stops.
00:00:36.492 --> 00:00:38.744
They're stuck with each other and they've got to ride...
00:00:38.828 --> 00:00:40.288
all the way to the end of the line.
00:00:40.371 --> 00:00:42.665
And it's a one-way trip, and the last stop is the cemetery.
00:00:42.748 --> 00:00:44.542
She put in her claim.
00:00:45.209 --> 00:00:47.795
I'm gonna throw it right back at her.
00:00:53.384 --> 00:00:55.136
Let her sue us if she dares.
00:00:55.219 --> 00:00:57.972
I'll be ready for her and that somebody else.
00:00:58.055 --> 00:01:00.599
They'll be digging their own graves.
00:01:09.003 --> 00:01:11.694
Mrs. Dietrichson? This is Jerry's Market.
00:01:11.777 --> 00:01:14.078
We just got in a shipment of that English soap you were asking about.
00:01:14.864 --> 00:01:18.001
Will you be coming by today? Thank you, Mrs. Dietrichson.
00:01:45.999 --> 00:01:48.105
- Hello, Walter. - Come over here.
00:01:51.999 --> 00:01:54.779
What's the matter? Everything's the matter.
00:01:56.001 --> 00:01:58.999
Keyes is rejecting your claim.
00:01:58.199 --> 00:02:00.785
He's sitting back with his mouth watering, waiting for you to sue.
00:02:00.999 --> 00:02:02.661
He wants you to sue, but you're not going to.
00:02:02.745 --> 00:02:05.623
- What's he got to stop me? - He's got plenty.
00:02:08.501 --> 00:02:09.001
He's figured out how it was worked.
00:02:09.001 --> 00:02:11.999
He knows it was somebody else on the train...
00:02:11.999 --> 00:02:13.631
and he's dug up a witness he thinks can prove it.
00:02:13.714 --> 00:02:16.011
Prove it how? If he rejects that claim, I have to sue.
00:02:16.001 --> 00:02:19.637
Yeah? And then you're in court and a lot of other things are going to come up.
00:02:19.072 --> 00:02:23.999
Like, for instance, about you and the first Mrs. Dietrichson.
00:02:23.999 --> 00:02:25.559
What about me and the first Mrs. Dietrichson?
00:02:25.643 --> 00:02:26.001
The way she died.
00:02:26.727 --> 00:02:29.999
And about that black hat you were trying on before you needed a black hat.
00:02:29.999 --> 00:02:31.524
Lola's been telling you some of her cockeyed stories.
00:02:31.649 --> 00:02:33.001
- She's been seeing you. - I've been seeing her, if you want to know.
00:02:34.012 --> 00:02:35.999
So she won't yell her head off about what she knows.
00:02:35.999 --> 00:02:38.572
She's putting on an act for you, crying all over your shoulder, the lying--
00:02:38.001 --> 00:02:40.999
Keep her out of this. All I'm telling you is we're not going to sue.
00:02:41.987 --> 00:02:42.999
Because you don't want the money anymore...
00:02:42.999 --> 00:02:43.494
even if you could have it, because she's...
00:02:43.577 --> 00:02:44.745
made you feel like a heel all of a sudden?
00:02:44.001 --> 00:02:48.994
It isn't the money anymore. It's our necks. We're pulling out, do you understand?
00:02:48.999 --> 00:02:51.008
Because of what Keyes can do? You're not fooling me, Walter.
00:02:51.001 --> 00:02:53.999
It's because of Lola, what you did to her father.
00:02:53.999 --> 00:02:56.001
You're afraid she might find out someday and you can't take it, can you?
00:02:56.465 --> 00:02:58.999
I said, leave her out of this.
00:03:03.001 --> 00:03:04.001
It's me I'm talking about.
00:03:04.999 --> 00:03:06.851
- I don't want to be left out of it. - Stop saying that.
00:03:06.934 --> 00:03:08.031
It's just that it hasn't worked as we wanted.
00:03:08.001 --> 00:03:11.987
- We can't go through with it, that's all. - We have gone through with it.
00:03:11.999 --> 00:03:12.999
The tough part is all behind us.
00:03:12.999 --> 00:03:14.001
We just have to hold on now and not go soft inside...
00:03:15.001 --> 00:03:17.999
stick close together the way we started out.
00:03:17.999 --> 00:03:18.904
Watch it.
