Gramp Maple:
But let me tell you one thing, Mr. Squier. The woman don't live or ever did live that's worth five thousand dollars!



Alan Squier:
Well, let me tell you something. You're a forgetful old fool. Any woman's worth everything that any man has to give: anguish, ecstasy, faith, jealousy, love, hatred, life or death. Don't you see that's the whole excuse for our existence? It's what makes the whole thing possible and tolerable.

Gabrielle Maple:
Petrified forest is a lot of dead trees in the desert that have turned to stone. Here's a good specimen.



Alan Squier:
So that was once a tree? Hmmm. Petrified forest, eh? Suitable haven for me. Well, perhaps that's what I'm destined to become, an interesting fossil for future study.

[Talking about signing his $5,000.00 life insurance policy over to Gabby]



Mrs. Edith Chisholm:
You're in love with her, aren't you?



Alan Squier:
Yes, I suppose I am. And not unreasonably. She has heroic stuff in her. She may be one of the immortal women of France. Another Joan of Arc, George Sand, Madame Curie, or Du Barry. I want to show her that I believe in her, and how else can I do it? Living, I'm worth nothing to her. Dead, I can buy her the tallest cathedrals, golden vineyards, and dancing in the streets. One well-directed bullet will accomplish all that, and it'll earn a measure of reflected glory for him that fired it and him that stopped it. This document will be my ticket to immortality. It'll inspire people to say of me, "There was an artist who died before his time." Will you do it, Duke?



Duke Mantee:
I'll be glad to.
