[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.

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?
