    • Bigelow: Is it everything you wanted, Mr. Stendahl? Stendahl: Yes. Bigelow: Is it desolate and terrible? Stendahl: Very terrible. Bigelow: The walls are bleak? Stendahl: Amazingly so. Bigelow: The sedge, we dyed it, you know. Is it properly hideous? Stendahl: It's beautiful.

    • Stendahl: There's always a minority afraid of something, and a great majority afraid of the past, afraid of the future, afraid of themselves.

    • Garrett: Now suppose you tell me about this place, Mr. Stendahl. Stendahl: It's a haunted castle, if you like. Garrett: I don't like, Mr. Stendahl. I don't like.

    • Stendahl: In this house, copper bats fly in make-believe attics. Brass rats scuttle in plastic cellars. Robot skeletons rattle in dreary closets. Garrett: Robot skeletons? Stendahl: Vampires, wolves, phantoms. Done with chemicals and ingenuity.

    • Garrett: Mr. Stendahl, what exactly is going on here? Stendahl: Murder. Garrett: Murder? Stendahl: Murder most foul!
