Mike: It's all right. You're safe.
Margaret: No, I knew that I was being punished.
Mike: It was an accident. No.
Margaret: No, I knew that I was bad. Do you know why? Do you know when I knew? Because I took your knife. That's when I knew.
Mike: What knife?

Susan Ricci: You never know who anybody is. With the exception of me, I am what I look like. Why is that, Mr. Ross?
Joe Ross: I think you look just fine.
Susan: No, anybody could be anybody mysterious or— Take that guy who got off the sea plane. Alright? Take him.
Joe: What about him?
Susan: What about him? Who was he?
Joe: I dunno. Fellow who got off the plane.
Susan: Just my point. Just my point. We think he's the fellow who got off the plane.
Joe: Can't go around mistrusting everybody. You mistrust everybody?
Susan: No. Just strangers.
Joe: Ah. We saw him get off the plane.
Susan: We did not! W-we saw him in a boat which came from the direction of the plane.
Joe: I saw him get off the plane.
Susan: Well, maybe that's just what you think you saw. [pause, Joe sits down] I got a picture. I took a picture of you and he's in the background and I believe you'll see, I can't say that I'm sure, but I think you'll see that his little boat just came from the direction of the plane and we have no idea who anyone is.
