Sam Spade:
If you kill me, how are you going get the bird? And if I know you can't afford to kill me, how are you going to scare me into giving it to you?
Kasper Gutman:
Well, sir, there are other means of persuasion besides killing and threatening to kill.
Sam Spade:
Yes, that's... That's true. But, there're none of them any good unless the threat of death is behind them. You see what I mean? If you start something, I'll make it a matter of your having to kill me or call it off.
Kasper Gutman:
That's an attitude, sir, that calls for the most delicate judgment on both sides. Because, as you know, sir, in the heat of action men are likely to forget where their best interests lie and let their emotions carry them away.
Sam Spade:
Then the trick from my angle is to make my play strong enough to tie you up, but not make you mad enough to bump me off against your better judgment.
Kasper Gutman:
By gad, sir, you are a character. There's never any telling what you'll say or do next, except that it's bound to be something astonishing.

If you kill me,
how are you gonna get the bird?
If I know you can't afford to kill me,
how'll you scare me into giving it to you?
Sir, there are other means of persuasion
besides killing and threatening to kill.
Yes, that's...
That's true.
But none of them are any good
unless the threat of death is behind them.
You see what I mean?
If you start something, I'll make it a matter
of your having to kill me or call it off.
That's an attitude, sir, that calls for
the most delicate judgement on both sides.
Because, as you know,
in the heat of action...
...men are likely to forget where
their best interests lie...
...and let their emotions carry them away.
And the trick from my angle is
to make my play strong enough...
...to tie you up, not make you mad enough
to bump me off...
...against your better judgement.
By gad, sir, you are a character.
They're selling you out, sonny.
I hope you're not influenced by the guns...
...these pocket-edition desperadoes
are waving around.
Because I've practiced taking guns away
from these boys before...
...so we'll have no trouble there.
- Wilmer, here-
- All right.
Wilmer!
There's our fall guy.
Either say yes right now
or I'll turn the falcon and all of you in.
I don't like that, sir.
Well, you won't like it. Well?
You can have him.
I won't be able to get the falcon
till daylight, maybe later.
It'd be best for us all
if we didn't leave each other's sight...
...until our business has been transacted.
You have the envelope?
Miss O'Shaughnessy has it. Hang on to it.
We won't lose sight of each other.
The dingus'll be brought to us here.
Excellent, sir, excellent!
Then in exchange for
the $10,000 and Wilmer...
...you'll give us the falcon
and an hour or two of grace.
Now, let's get the details fixed, first.
Why did he shoot Thursby and why, where
and how did he shoot Captain Jacoby?
I've got to know all that happened
so the parts that don't fit are covered up.
I shall be candid with you, sir.
Thursby was Miss O'Shaughnessy's ally.
We believed that disposing of him
as we did...
...would cause Miss O'Shaughnessy to stop
and think that it would be best...
...to patch up her differences with us
regarding the falcon.
You didn't try to make a deal
before giving him the works?
We did. Yes, sir. We most certainly did.
