"You've already got one going, Mrs. Mulwray."
"Your wife got excited. She crossed her legs a little too quick. You understand what I mean, pal?"
"They shut my water off. What's it to you?"
"How'd you find out about it? You don't drink it, you don't bathe in it. They wrote you a letter! But then you'd have to be able to read."
"Isn't that your phone number?"
"Is it? I forget. I don't call myself that often."
"Now where's the girl? I want the only daughter I've got left. As you found out, Evelyn was lost to me a long time ago."
"Who do you blame for that? Her?"
"I don't blame myself. You see, Mr Gittes, most people never have to face the fact that at the right time and the right place, they're capable of ANYTHING."
