David Stillwell: Wouldn't it be hilarious if it turned out you actually knew what you were doing? [Talking about the Major] David Stillwell:
Those people aren't even ants to him! They're articles of commerce! And I'm the cost accountant, trying to cut down his overhead with what you and he call "progress"!
[Josephson is debating whether to side with David or the Major] David Stillwell: Dammit, Josephson, commit! If you're not committed to anything, you're just taking up space! Dr. Broden: But whatever that horrible thing that happened... I don't want to know about it! David Stillwell: Broden, there's no doubt you're a brilliant scientist... But you're not much of a doctor, or of a human being, either. Dr. Broden: God knows. Crawford Gilcuttie: I'm tired of you, David. Just give me the formula and get the hell out of here...! David Stillwell: What's the matter, Major? You seem nervous! Crawford Gilcuttie: ...Why should I be? David Stillwell: That's what I want to know... [David looks around at the others] David Stillwell: Josephson? Josephson: Hm? David Stillwell: Is that who you're worried about? Josephson: Why should he be worried about me? David Stillwell: Because I'm not on the hook anymore. You are. Josephson: Why? David Stillwell: Because you've got the gun! Ted Caselle: My secretary is out to lunch, my partner is out in a case. My name is Caselle. Who recomended you? Mr? David Stillwell: Stillwell. David Stillwell. I saw the sign. Ted Caselle: What can I do for you? David Stillwell: To open it. You can find who I am. Ted Caselle: Sure you are David Stillwell. That will be... humm 10 bucks! David Stillwell: What about your secretary? Don't you want to leave a note or something? Ted Caselle: I will tell the truth. I don't have a secretary and there is no partner. As a matter of fact you are my first case. David Stillwell: Terrific.
