Walter Neff (voiceover): "That was all there was to it. Nothing had slipped, nothing had been overlooked.There was nothing to give us away. And yet, Keyes, as I was walking down the street to the drugstore, suddenly, it came over me that everything would go wrong. It sounds crazy Keyes, but it's true, so help me. ...I couldn't hear my own footsteps. It was the walk of a dead man."
Edward S. Norton: "There's a widespread feeling that just because a man has a large office he must be an idiot."

Walter Neff: "Look baby, you can't get away with it. You wanna knock him off, don'tcha." Phyllis Dietrichson: "That's a horrible thing to say." Walter Neff: "Who'd you think I was anyway?
