The gun had blanks

Christian Szell:
The gun had blanks, the knife, a retractable blade. Hardly original, but effective enough. I think you'll agree. I'm told you are a graduate student. Brilliant, yes? You are an historian, and I am part of history. I should have thought you would have found me interesting. Frankly, I am disappointed in your silence.
Babe:
Why do you have so little accent?
Christian Szell:
I had alexia as a child. Alexia is a disease...
Babe:
I know. It's where you can't understand written speech.
Christian Szell:
Highest marks. At any event, my writing is childish still, but I'm a fanatic about spoken language. I envy you your school days. Enjoy them fully. It's that last time in your life no one expects anything of you.

Transcript:
The gun had blanks,
the knife a retractable blade.
Hardly original, but effective enough.
I think you'll agree.
I'm told you are a graduate student.
Brilliant, yeah?
You're an historian,
and I am part of history.
I should have thought you
would have found me interesting.
Frankly, I am disappointed
in your silence.
Why do you have so little accent?
I had alexia as a child.
Alexia is a disease...
I know, it's where you can't
understand written speech.
Highest marks.
At any event, my writing is childish still,
but I'm a fanatic about spoken language.
I envy you your school days.
Enjoy them.
It's the last time in your life
no one expects anything of you.
I know I behaved terribly,
but I had to be sure what you knew.
You see...
I'm positive your
brother meant to rob me
when I left the bank
with my diamonds.
I don't know anything.
- Did Scylla plan the robbery alone?
- Robbery?
- You know the value of diamonds?
- No, I don't.
Neither do I. Not in today's market.
Tomorrow, I must go and find
out before I go to the bank.
You see...
Your brother was incredibly strong.
Strength is often inherited.
He died in your arms.
He travelled far and in
great pain to do that.
There has to be a reason.
I don't know anything.
Karl!
