Phelps: What were you doing with him?
Elsa: I was doing what you asked.
Phelps: I didn't as you to meet him in an alleyway.
Elsa: Why do you snarl at me? Your friend came to ask me to accept the insurance money.
Phelps: He's not my friend, Elsa.
Elsa: I think he's a brave man and you have placed him in great danger. You've involved him in something he has no idea of the risk. Can you live with that, Cole?
Phelps: Elsa, I need his help and he hates my guts.
Elsa: Forget the past, Cole. He deserves the chance to say no. If he helps you, let it be on his terms.
Phelps: I'll go see him in the morning.
Kelso: Nice wiring job, fellas. Keep them in the dark. Good thing I'm not thirsty.
Man 1: You lose something, Mac?
Man 2: I thought these private eye types were all wise guys with smart mouths.
Man 3: Looks like the snappy repartee has all dried up.
Kelso: Get on with it.
Man 1: What's your hurry, Mac? You got some place to go?
Kelso: You ever do the cat and mouse routine without a gun in your hand?
Man 2: Now that's more like it.
Kelso: Don't get impatient now. I'll get to each one of you in good time.
Man 2: Time for you to lose some teeth.
Man 3: All right, let's...
Man 2: Don't worry buddy, I'll lay you out quick.
Man 1: You were warned, tough guy. You should learn to take a hint. Get him downstairs and into the trunk.
