Alfred Hitchcock: Good evening. You will excuse me if I speak rapidly, but I haven't much time. I'm playing some idiotic children's game, and I'm supposed to stand against this wall, blindfolded, and with my hands tied behind me. While I'm standing here waiting for something to happen, you may watch tonight's drama, "The Dangerous People." I shall join you later.
[a machine gun fires bullets in a straight line across the wall]
Alfred Hitchcock: Thank you, but no more applause.
Bellefontaine: Oh, hello.
Bellefontaine: [voice-over] It was foolish to hurry so. What's the matter with me? Now I'm out of breath. I'll stay here a minute to get my breath, or else he'll ask what's the matter, and I'll tell him it's asthma, and he'll tell me about how his wife had asthma, or his boss, or his cousin Wilbur.
Maniac: I wanna go back where it's safer.
Man in White Coat: That's where we're going.
