Kitty: Can you put me away, Mr. Reardon?
Reardon: Blinky Franklin made a deathbed statement under oath. There's no stronger testimony. And there's a chambermaid in an Atlantic City hotel that has a memory for faces. Well?
Kitty: Oh, there's no use kidding myself. I'd do anything you wanted. Give you every penny I could lay my hands on.
Reardon: How many pennies is that?
Kitty: Well, I might be able to raise $65, $70 thousand at the most.
Reardon: Not enough.
Kitty: That's all I could possibly get together. I'm not stalling, Mr. Reardon, not now. I know when I'm beaten. I'm fighting for my life, not Kitty Collins' life, but mine. I have a home now and a husband. I've got a life worth fighting for, and there's nothing in this world I wouldn't do to keep it just the way it is.
Reardon: Well, we might still be able to do business if you put a prize in with the CrackerJack.
Kitty: What do you mean?
Reardon: I wanna fall guy when it's over.
Kitty: Who would that be?
Reardon: Colfax.
Kitty: Even the old Kitty Collins never sang, Mr. Reardon.
