Abby: [about Marty] He's real careful. Fact is, he's anal.
Ray: Huh?
Abby: Yeah, he told me once himself. He said to me... [taps herself on the forehead] "In here, Abby. In here... I'm anal."
Ray: Well I'll be damned.
Abby: I couldn't believe it either. Me on the other hand, I got lots of personality. Marty always said I had too much. 'Course he was never big on personality. He sent me to a psychiatrist to see if he could calm me down some.
Ray: Yeah? What happened?
Abby: Psychiatrist said I was the healthiest person he'd ever met, so Marty fired him.


Abby: I said, "Marty, how come you're anal and I gotta go to the psychiatrist?"
Ray: What'd he say?
Abby: Nothing. He's like you, he doesn't say much.
Ray: Thanks.
Abby: Except when he doesn't say things, they're usually nasty.
Ray: Mm-hmm.
Abby: When you don't, they're usually nice.

Marty: [looking at a photo of Ray and Abby] Dead, huh?
Visser: So it would seem.

Visser: Something I got to ask you, Marty. I've been very very careful. Have you been very very careful?
Marty: Of course.
Visser: Nobody knows you hired me?
Marty: Don't be absurd, I wasn't about to tell anyone. This is an illicit romance--we've got to trust each other to be discreet. For richer, for poorer.
Visser: Don't say that. Your marriages don't work out so hot. How did you cover the money?
Marty: It's taken care of. The less you know about it the better. I just made a call about that. It'll look fine.
Visser: I must've gone money simple. This kind of murder...it's too damn risky.
Marty: Then you shouldn't have done it. Can't have it both ways. Count it if you want.
Visser: Nah, I trust ya. [shoots Marty]

Abby: Ray?
Ray: You're bad.
Abby: What?
Ray: I said you're bad.
Abby: [long pause, then smiles] You're bad too.
Ray: We're both bad.

Ray: I just wanted to let you know that everything was all right. I took care of everything. Now all we have to do is keep our heads.
Abby: What do you mean?
Ray: I know about it, Abby. I went to the bar last night.
...
Abby: Well... what happened?
Ray: I cleaned it all up, but that ain't important. What's important is what we do now; I mean we can't go around half-****ed. What we need is some time to think about this, figure it out. Anyway, we got some time now. But we gotta be smart.
Abby: Ray--
Ray: Abby, never point a gun at anyone unless you're gonna shoot him. And when you shoot him you better make sure he's dead because if he's not dead he's gonna get up and try and kill you. That's the only thing they told us in the service that was worth a goddamn--Where the hell's my windbreaker?
Abby: What the hell happened, Ray?
Ray: That ain't important. What's important is that we did it. That's the only thing that matters. We both did it for each other...That's what's important.
Abby: I don't know what you're talking about.

Marty: Lover-boy oughta lock his door. I love you...That's a stupid thing to say, right?
Abby: I... I love you too.
Marty: [smiling] No. You're just saying that because you're scared. You left your weapon behind...He'll kill you too.

Abby: You leaving?
Ray: Isn't that what you want? [she shakes her head no] Wanna come with me?
Abby: But first I gotta know what happened.
Ray: What do you want to know?
Abby: You broke into the bar. You wanted to get your money. You and Marty had a fight. Something happened...
[Ray shakes his head, smiling]
Abby: I don't know, wasn't it you? Maybe a burglar broke in, and you found--
Ray: With your gun? Nobody broke in, Abby. I'll tell you the truth...Truth is, I've felt sick the last couple of days. Can't eat... Can't sleep... When I try to I... Abby...The truth is... he was alive when I buried him.

Ray: I think someone's watching.
Abby: [turning on the light] So what'll they see?
Ray: Just leave it off. He can see in.
Abby: If you do anything the neighbors'll hear.
Ray: You think...Abby. I meant it... when I called.
Abby: I love you too.
Ray: Because you're scared.

Abby: I ain't afraid of you, Marty.
Visser: [laughing] Well ma'am...If I see him, I'll sure give him the message.
