T.R. Devlin


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!


Alicia: You can add Sebastian's name to my list of playmates.
Devlin: Pretty fast work.
Alicia: That's what you wanted, wasn't it?
Devlin: Skip it!..I've been recalling some of your remarks about being a new woman. Daisies and buttercups, wasn't it?
Alicia: You idiot. What are you sore about? You knew very well what I was doing.
Devlin: Did I?
Alicia: You could have stopped me. Just one word. But no, you wouldn't. You threw me at him.
Devlin: I threw you at nobody.
Alicia: Didn't you tell me to go ahead?
Devlin: A man doesn't tell a woman what to do. She tells herself. You almost had me believing in that little hokey-pokey miracle of yours. If a woman like you could ever change her spots.
Alicia: Oh, you're rotten.
Devlin: That's why I didn't try to stop you. And the answer had to come from you.
Alicia: I see. Some kind of love test.
Devlin: That's right.
Alicia: Well, you never believed in me anyways so what's the difference.
Devlin: Lucky for both of us I didn't. It wouldn't have been pretty if I believed in you. If I'd figured: 'She'll never be able to go through with this. She's been made over by love.'
Alicia: If you only once had said that you loved me. Oh, Dev.
Devlin: Listen. You chalked up another boyfriend. That's all. No harm done.
Alicia: I hate you.
Devlin: There's no occasion to. You're doing good work. Number 10's out in front. It looks as if Sebastian knows how to pick 'em.
Alicia: Is that all you have to say to me?
Devlin: Dry your eyes baby. It's out of character. Keep on your toes. There's a tough job around. Snap out of it. Here comes dreamboat.

Alicia: Don't talk like that. I detest him...Alex, I've told you before. Mr. Devlin doesn't mean a thing to me.
Alex: I'd like to be convinced. Would you maybe care to convince me, Alicia, that Mr. Devlin means nothing to you?

Mme. Sebastian: Yes, it is easy to see now. I knew but I didn't see. They picked her because of her father.
Alex: I must have been insane, mad. Behaved like an idiot, to believe in her with her clinging kisses.
Mme. Sebastian: Stop wallowing in your foul memories.
Alex: Then what do I do? There's nothing to do. I'm done, finished. They'll find out.
Mme. Sebastian: They won't find out.
Alex: They'll find out what I'm married to. Look what they did to Emil Hupka, Emil who did nothing. And I've betrayed them, I've bungled and there's no excuse. I'd do the same myself - kill the fool that betrayed them.
Mme. Sebastian: There's no need for them to find out.
Alex: Mathis is very sharp.
Mme. Sebastian: Yes. He dislikes you. But his criticism of your talents wouldn't go that far to imagine that you are married to an American agent. You are protected by the enormity of your stupidity - for a time.
Alex: Alicia, I'll take care of her myself.
Mme. Sebastian: No, not that way. Let me arrange this one. Listen to me. No one must know what she is. There must be no suspicion of her, of you or me. She must be allowed to move about freely. But she will be on a leash. She will learn nothing further to inform. She must go, but it must happen slowly. If she could become ill and remain ill for a time, until...

Mr. Devlin's been transferred to Spain...Well I guess he thought he was going stale here...I guess he thought he'd find Spain more interesting...Well, of course, it is more or less routine now.

[to Devlin] Go away and leave me alone. I have my own life to lead. Good times. That's what I want, and laughs with people I like. And no underhanded cops who want to put me up in a shooting gallery, but people of my own kind, who treat me right and like me and understand me.

[to Devlin] You double-crossing buzzard - you're a cop!...a federal cop crashing my party...you're trailing me to get something on me.

Now try to memorize the names of all the people you see there tonight. The men I mean. And get their nationalities. That's very important...And I suggest that you, uh, don't ask any questions. Just use your eyes and ears. They're a pretty keen and desperate bunch. Don't underestimate them.

I hate low, under-handed people like policemen, pussy-footing after you. Of course, I'm a marked woman, you know? I'm liable to blow up the Panama Canal any minute now.

Devlin: You look for a bottle of wine like the one that rattled the fellow at dinner that night.
Alicia: All the bottles look alike to me. I'm no mastermind.
Devlin: You're doing all right.
Alicia: It's no fun there.
Devlin: Too late for that now, isn't it? Look, uh, why don't you persuade your husband to throw a large shindig, so that he can introduce his bride to Rio's society, say sometime next week?
Alicia: Why?
Devlin: Consider me invited, and I'll try and find out about that wine cellar business.
Alicia: I don't think my husband is interested in entertaining just yet.
Devlin: The honeymoon isn't over, huh? Don't underestimate your charms, Mrs. Sebastian, you can handle it.
Alicia: I don't think it's gonna be so easy about you. He thinks you're in love with me.
Devlin: Well, then, tell him you thought if you invited me to the house and I saw how happily married you were, then the horrid passion I have for you might be torn out of me.
Alicia: That sounds very logical.
Devlin: Good, next week then, and get the key. I have to fly up to Berlin, but I'll be back in time.

I don't know why I should feel so bad. When he told me a few years ago what he was, everything went to pot. I didn't care what happened to me. Now I remember how nice he once was. How nice we both were, very nice. It's a very curious feeling as if something had happened to me and not to him. You see, I don't have to hate him anymore or myself.

I don't know if she'll do it...Well, I don't think she's that type of woman.

[to Sebastian] He has pestered me with his tenderness ever since I arrived...Mr. Devlin doesn't interest me.

I want to make it 80 and wipe that grin off your face. I don't like gentlemen who grin at me.

Gentlemen, I assure you, she's the perfect type for the job...She's good at making friends with gentlemen, and we want somebody inside his house, in his confidence.
