"No, no, no, no, no, no. When you killed this man, did you feel a surge of strength within you, a burst of adrenaline?"-- Nightcrawler
"No. No. It wasn't anything like that. No matter what anybody says it wasn't anything like that. Well, I gotta admit, my heartwas beating like a rabbit. The guy did have the draw on me. You know, it would have been curtains if... if... if Nick wasn't there to save my ass. Oh, jeeze. Have I been an idiot! I've been running around all day butting my nose into Nick's affairs when the guy saved my life. I'm a first class fool." --Schanke
"You're tired, Detective. Under tremendous stress. Stress and trauma. Any shock to the system will prey on the imagination fill us with bizarre obsessions, fantasies if you like. "-- Nightcrawler
"Yeah, Yeah."-- Schanke
"Go home, detective. Go home to your family and let Nicholas be with his... Us. Janette and myself. We're the only family Nick has ever had." --Nightcrawler
"What're you saying, that he's adopted?"-- Schanke
"In a manner of speaking, yes." --Nightcrawler
"And um, he's not a... "--Schanke
"What do you think, really?" Nightcrawler
"I think I need a drink. Listen, ah, I just want to, ah, thank you for talking to me, Mr., ah, Mr., ah, Nightcrawler."-- Schanke
"Only a real pleasure, Don."-- Nightcrawler
"And, um, please, don't tell Nick about this...ever!" --Schanke
