T.R. Devlin


Alicia: It's nice out here. Let's not go out to dinner. Let's stay here.
Devlin: We have to eat.
Alicia: We can eat here. I'll cook.
Devlin: I thought you didn't like to cook.
Alicia: No I don't like to cook, but I have a chicken in the icebox and you're eating it.
Devlin: What about all the washing up afterwards?
Alicia: We'll eat it with our fingers.
Devlin: Don't we need any plates?
Alicia: Yes, one for you and one for me.
Devlin: You mind if I have dinner with you tonight?
Alicia: I'd be delighted. Where are you going?
Devlin: If you're going to stay in, I have to telephone the hotel, see if there are any messages.
Alicia: Do I have to?
Devlin: I have to.
Alicia: This is a very strange love affair.
Devlin: Why?
Alicia: Maybe the fact that you don't love me.
Devlin: ...When I don't love you, I'll let you know.
Alicia: You haven't said anything.
Devlin: [kissing her] Actions speak louder than words.


Alicia: [about Sebastian proposing marriage] I didn't know what the department might think about such a step.
Prescott: Are you willing to go this far for us, Miss Huberman?
Alicia: Yes, if you wish.
Prescott: What do you think of this, Devlin?
Devlin: Oh, I think it's a useful idea.
Prescott: Well, you know the situation better than any of us.
Devlin: May I ask what inspired Alex Sebastian to go this far?
Alicia: He's in love with me.
Devlin: And he thinks you're in love with him?
Alicia: Yes, that's what he thinks. Then it's all right?
Prescott: Of course, it's a perfect marriage - for us.

Alicia: What's the matter? Don't look so tense. Troubles? Well handsome, I think you'd better tell Mama what's going on. All this secrecy's going to ruin my little dinner. Come on, Mr. D., what is darkening your brow?
Devlin: After dinner.
Alicia: No, now! Look, I'll make it easy for you. The time has come when you must tell me that you have a wife and two adorable children and this madness between us can't go on any longer.
Devlin: I'll bet you've heard that line often enough.
Alicia: Right below the belt every time. Oh, that isn't fair, Dev.
Devlin: Skip it. We have other things to talk about. We've got a job.
Alicia: Oh. So there is a job.
Devlin: You, uh, you remember a man named Sebastian?
Alicia: Alex Sebastian?
Devlin: Yes.
Alicia: One of my father's friends, yes.
Devlin: He had quite a crush on you.
Alicia: I wasn't very responsive.
Devlin: Well, he's here. The head of a large German business concern.
Alicia: His family always had money.
Devlin: He's part of the combine that built up the German war machine and hopes to keep on going.
Alicia: Something big?
Devlin: It has all the earmarks of being something big. We have to contact him.
Alicia: Go on, let's have all of it.
Devlin: We're meeting him tomorrow. The rest is up to you. You've got to work on him and land him.
Alicia: Mata Hari. She makes love for the papers.
Devlin: There are no papers. You land him. Find out what's going on inside his house, what the group around him is up to, and report to us.
Alicia: I suppose you knew about this pretty little job of mine all the time.
Devlin: No. I only just found out about it.

Alicia: Did you say anything? I mean, that maybe I wasn't the girl for such shenanigans?
Devlin: I figured that was up to you - if you'd care to back out.
Alicia: I suppose you told them, 'Alicia Huberman would have this Sebastian eating out of her hand in a couple of weeks. She's good at that. Always was.'
Devlin: I didn't say anything.
Alicia: Not a word for that little love-sick lady you left an hour ago?
Devlin: I told you, that's the assignment.
Alicia: Oh well now, don't get sore, Dev. I'm only fishing for a little bird-call from my dream man, one little remark, such as: 'How dare you gentlemen suggest that Alicia Huberman, the new Miss Huberman, be submitted to so ugly a fate!'
Devlin: That's not funny.
Alicia: Do you want me to take the job?
Devlin: You're answering for yourself.
Alicia: I am asking you.
Devlin: It's up to you.
Alicia: Not a peep, hm? Oh, darling. What you didn't tell them, tell me! That you believe I'm nice, and that I love you, and I'll never change back.
Devlin: I'm waiting for your answer.
Alicia: What a little pal you are. Never believing me, hmm? Not a word of faith. Just down the drain with Alicia. That's where she belongs. Oh, Dev, Dev. When do I go to work for Uncle Sam?
Devlin: Tomorrow morning.
Alicia: Oh, we shouldn't have had this out here. It's all cold now. What are you looking for?
Devlin: I had a bottle of champagne. I must have left it somewhere.

Alicia: What's this all about, huh? What's your angle?
Devlin: What angle?
Alicia: About last night.
Devlin: Just wanted to be friends.
Alicia: Friends, yeah. You could frame me, hmm?
Devlin: No, I've got a job for ya.
Alicia: Oh well, don't tell me. There's only, oh, there's only one job that you coppers would want me for. Well you can forget it Mr....
Devlin: Devlin.
Alicia: What?
Devlin: Devlin.
Alicia: I'm no stool-pigeon, Mr. Devlin.
Devlin: My department authorized me to engage you to do some work for us. There's a job in Brazil.
Alicia: Oh, go away. The whole thing bores me.
Devlin: Some of the German gentry who are paying your father are working in Rio. Ever hear of the I. G. Farben Industries?
Alicia: I tell you, I'm not interested.
Devlin: Farben has men in South America, planted there before the war. They're cooperating with the Brazilian government to smoke them out. My chief thinks that the daughter of a, uh...
Alicia: A traitor?
Devlin: Well, he thinks you might be valuable in the work. They might sell their trust to you. And you could make up a little for your daddy's peculiarities.
Alicia: Why should I?
Devlin: Patriotism.
Alicia: That word gives me a pain. No thank you. I don't go for patriotism, nor patriots.
Devlin: I could dispute that with you.
Alicia: Waving the flag with one hand and picking pockets with the other. That's your patriotism. Well, you can have it.

Alicia: There's nothing like a love song to give you a good laugh. It's too stuffy in here for a picnic. Do you want to finish that? [gesturing toward his drink]
Devlin: It's a shame to leave it. [He downs most of the drink]
Alicia: You're quite a boy. [She finishes his drink] My car is outside.
Devlin: Naturally.
Alicia: Do you wanna go for a ride?
Devlin: Very much. What about your guests?
Alicia: They'll crawl out under their own steam. I'm, I'm gonna drive. That's, that's understood.
Devlin: Don't you need a coat?
Alicia: You'll do.

Alicia: [on tape] I told you before Christmas I wouldn't do it.
Father: You can use your judgment. You can have anything you want. The work is easy.
Alicia: I won't listen, Father.
Father: This is not your country, is it?
Alicia: My mother was born here. We had a right of citizenship.
Father: Where is your judgment? In your feelings you are German. You've got to listen to me. You don't know what we stand for.
Alicia: I know what you stand for - you and your murderous swine. I've hated you ever since I found out.
Father: My daughter, don't talk to me like that.
Alicia: Stay on your side of the table.
Father: Alicia, put your voice down.
Alicia: I hate you all. And I love this country. Do you understand that? I love it. I'll see you all hang before I raise a finger against it. Now go on and get out of here. So help me, I'll turn you in. Don't ever come near nor speak to me again about your rotten schemes.

John Huberman: You can put me away, but you can't put away what's going to happen to you and to this whole country. Next time, next time we are going to...

Alicia: It's odd, but I feel at home with you.
Alex: You know my dear, I knew this was going to happen. I knew when we met the other day that if I saw you again, I'd feel what I used to for you. The same hunger. You're so lovely, my dear.

Alex: Mother, Mother.
Mme. Sebastian: Why are you up so early?
Alex: I need your help.
Mme. Sebastian: Something is wrong?
Alex: A great deal - Alicia.
Mme. Sebastian: I have expected it. I knew. I knew. What is it? Mr. Devlin?
Alex: No. I am married to an American agent.

Alicia: Alex, he's seen us.
Devlin: Wait a minute, I'm gonna kiss you.
Alicia: No, he'll only think we - No...
Devlin: It's what I want him to think.
[They kiss]
Devlin: Push me away.
Alex: I'm sorry to intrude on this tender scene.
Alicia: I couldn't help what happened. He's been drinking.
Alex: You love him.
...
Devlin: For what it's worth as an apology, your wife is telling the truth. I knew her before you, loved her before you. But I wasn't as lucky as you.
[Devlin leaves]
Alicia: Alex, don't be foolish. I-I came down because he threatened to make a scene...I couldn't stop him. I tried.
Alex: He kissed you.

Alex: [to his Nazi conspirators] She collapsed. Mr. Devlin heard her scream when he was waiting for me.
Devlin: Yes, I telephoned the hospital as soon as I saw how she was.

Alicia: You don't think a woman can change?
Devlin: Sure. But change is fun, for a while.
Alicia: For a while. What a rat you are Devlin!
Devlin: All right. You've been sober for eight days. And as far as I know, you've made no new conquests.
Alicia: Well, that's something.
Devlin: Eight days. Practically white-washed.
Alicia: I'm very happy here. Why won't you let me be happy?
Devlin: No one is stopping you.
Alicia: Why don't you give that copper's brain of yours a rest? Every time you look at me, I can see it running over its slogans: 'Once a crook, always a crook,' 'Once a tramp, always a tramp.' Go on. You can hold my hand. I won't blackmail you for it afterwards. Scared?
Devlin: I've always been scared of women, but I'll get over it.
Alicia: Now you're scared of yourself. You're afraid you'll fall in love with me.
Devlin: That wouldn't be hard.
Alicia: Oh now, careful, careful.
Devlin: You enjoy making fun of me, don't you?
Alicia: No Dev, I'm making fun of myself. I'm pretending I'm a nice, unspoiled child whose heart is full of daisies and buttercups.
Devlin: Nice daydream. Then what?
Alicia: I think I will have another drink.
Devlin: I thought you'd get around to it.
Alicia: Make it a double...Why won't you believe in me, Devlin - just a little? Why won't you? I know why you won't, Devlin. You're sore. You're sore because you're falling for a little drunk you've taken in Miami and you don't like it. It makes you sick all over, doesn't it? People will laugh at you. The invincible Devlin, in love with someone who isn't worth even wasting the words on. Poor Dev, in love with a no-good gal. It must be awful. I'm sorry.

Alexander Sebastian: [to Alicia] Many things have died for all of us. We mustn't let our spirit die with them. Perhaps I can help you to forget. I'd like to.

Devlin: Alicia, Alicia, Alicia. What's wrong with you?
Alicia: I'm so glad you came.
Devlin: I had to. I couldn't stand anymore waiting and worrying about you. It wasn't a hangover you had that day. You were sick then. What is it?
Alicia: Yes, I was sick.
Devlin: What's wrong with you, Alicia?
Alicia: Oh Dev.
Devlin: What is it, dear? What's wrong with you?
Alicia: They're poisoning me. I couldn't get away from them. I tried but I was too weak.
Devlin: How long?
Alicia: Since the party. Alex and his mother found out.
Devlin: Come on, try to sit up. Sit up. I've got to get you out of here.
Alicia: I thought you had gone.
Devlin: No. I had to see you once and speak my peace. I was getting out because I love you. I couldn't bear seeing you and him together.
Alicia: Oh, you love me. Why didn't you tell me this before?
Devlin: I know. But I couldn't see straight or think straight. I was a fatheaded guy full of pain. It tore me up not having you.
Alicia: Oh you love me. You love me.
Devlin: Long ago. All the time. Since the beginning...Come on, try to sit up.
Alicia: Oh Dev. I'm afraid I-I can't make it because they gave me pills to sleep.
Devlin: Keep awake. Keep talking...
Alicia: They didn't want the others to know about me.
Devlin: Keep talking. Come on, what happened? What happened?
Alicia: Alex found out.
Devlin: And the others haven't?
Alicia: They'd kill him if they knew. They killed Emil.
Devlin: Are you in pain?
Alicia: I don't know - the pills...Say it again, it keeps me awake.
Devlin: I love you. Stand up. Stand up. Come on, wake up. Talk!
