More dialogue you can see coming a mile away:

"You are either very brave ... or very foolish."
"Perhaps ... a little of both."

"Be careful! Don't hit *the girl*!"

"What have you done with her?"
"Nothing ... yet."

"I'll see to it tomorrow."
"But ... that'll be too late!"
"What do you mean by that?!?"
"Oh ... nothing...."
