A little humor, my dear Zilkov, always with a little humor

[Shaw has been conditioned to obey when seeing the queen of diamonds; Marco has brought a special deck of all queens of diamonds]



Raymond Shaw:
They can make me do anything, Ben, can't they? Anything.



Bennett Marco:
We'll see, kid. We'll see what they can do and we'll see what we can do. So the red queen is our baby. Well, take a look at this, kid...


[fans deck and keeps holding up the cards]



Bennett Marco:
52 of them! Take a good look at 'em, Raymond, look at 'em, and while you're looking, listen. This is me, Marco, talking. 52 red queens and me are telling you... you know what we're telling you? It's over! The links, the beautifully conditioned links are smashed. They're smashed as of now because we say so, because we say they are to be smashed. We're busting up the joint, we're tearing out all the wires. We're busting it up so good all the queen's horses and all the queen's men will never put old Raymond back together again. You don't work any more! That's an order. Anybody invites you to a game of solitaire, you tell 'em sorry, buster, the ball game is over.

Dr. Yen Lo:
Attractive plant you have here.



Zilkov:
Thank you, doctor. It's actually a rest home for wealthy alcoholics. We were able to purchase it three years ago. Except for this floor and the floor above it, which is sealed off for security purposes, the rest functions quite normally. In fact it's one of the few Soviet operations in America that actually showed a profit at the end of the last fiscal year.



Dr. Yen Lo:
Profit? Fiscal year? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Beware, my dear Zilkov. The virus of capitalism is highly infectious. Soon you'll be lending money out at interest!

Sen. John Yerkes Iselin:
No evasions, Mister Secretary, no evasions if you please.



Secretary of Defense:
Evasions? What the hell are you talking about?



Secretary of Defense:
[whispering to Marco] What the hell is this nonsense?



Marco:
[covering the microphones] Mister Secretary, I'm kind of new at this job, but I don't think it's good public relations to speak that way to a US Senator, even if he is an idiot.



Sen. John Yerkes Iselin:
I am United States Senator John Yerkes Iselin, and I have here a list of two hundred seven persons who are known by the Secretary of Defense as being members of the Communist Party!



Secretary of Defense:
[amid shocked reaction from the crowd] What?



Sen. John Yerkes Iselin:
Who nevertheless are still shaping the policy of the Defense Department!



Secretary of Defense:
Senator who?



Sen. John Yerkes Iselin:
I demand an answer, Mister Secretary! There will be no covering up, sir! No covering up!



Secretary of Defense:
How did you get in here in the first place?

Mrs. Iselin:
[cordially, at a party the Iselins are giving] How good of you to come, Tom.



Sen. Thomas Jordan:
[matter-of-fact, rather than cordial] I've explained to your husband why I'm here.



Mrs. Iselin:
Tom, I know you have strong, personal feelings about Johnny and about me. But, what I would like to find out is, how strong they really are. To put it as simply as possible, If Johnny's name were to be put forward at the convention next week, would you attempt to block him?



Sen. Thomas Jordan:
[taken slightly aback] You're joking, of course?



Mrs. Iselin:
Mr. Stevenson makes jokes, I do not.



Sen. Thomas Jordan:
You're seriously trying for the nomination for Johnny?



Mrs. Iselin:
No, we couldn't make it. But he has a good chance for the second spot. Now, I've answered your question, but you haven't answered mine. Will you block us?



Sen. Thomas Jordan:
Would I block you? I would spend every cent I own, and all I could borrow, to block you. There are people who think of Johnny as a clown and a buffoon, but I do not. I despise John Iselin and everything that Iselinism has come to stand for. I think, if John Iselin were a paid Soviet agent, he could not do more to harm this country than he's doing now. You have asked me a question. Very well, I shall answer you. If you attempt a deal with the delegates, or cause Johnny's name to be brought forward on the ticket, or if, in my canvass of the delegates tomorrow morning, I find that you are so acting, I will bring impeachment procedings against your husband on the floor of the United States Senate. And I will hit him, I promise you, with everything in my well-documented book.



Mrs. Iselin:
[Mrs. Iselin leaves without a word, the discussion clearly over, for the present]
