Matthew Burke:
You ever thought of what would happen if we had a fire here? In the cellar, there are six barrels of wax. Wax is paraffin based. It's highly inflammable. This place would go up like a paint factory.
Prof. Henry Jarrod:
Burn? Burn all of my people? You think I'm a murderer?
Matthew Burke:
Stop dreaming, will you? These dummies are insured for $25,000. That's $12,500 for each of us. You wouldn't need Wallace, you'd have enough to begin again.
Prof. Henry Jarrod:
No, I'd rather die myself than see my friends destroyed; I won't let you do it, and I'll kill you if you try!
Matthew Burke:
Don't be stupid! All you have to do is strike a match, and the thing is done.
[Lights the fire and begins to scorch the wax museum]

And you call me crazy?
You ever thought of what would happen
if we had a fire here?
In the cellar, there are six barrels of wax.
Wax has a paraffin base.
It's highly inflammable. This whole place
would go up like a paint factory.
Burn? Burn all my people?
- Do you think I'm a murderer?
- Oh, stop dreaming.
These dummies are insured for $25,000.
That's $12,500 for each of us.
You wouldn’t need Wallace.
You'd have enough to begin again.
No, I'd rather die myself
than see my friends destroyed.
I won't Let you do it,
and I’ll kill you if you try.
Don't be stupid.
All you have to do is to strike a match
and the thing is done.
