    • Lottie: Well, don't kill yourself laughing, Blanche. I may be a size fourteen but I could get to be a size ten for him! A man like that I could even get to be beautiful. A man like that a woman would do anything, just anything!

    • (Closing Narration)
      Alfred Hitchcock: (Sitting on a bench with a baby carriage in front of him. He has a mallet in his hand, a baby is crying.) And now I suppose you babies who have just put the sitter to bed are wondering about Mr. Nash. He escaped in his automobile, but not for long. He was soon arrested for failing to yield the right of way. Well, he wasn't exactly arrested. You see, it was a train that he failed to yield to. And now, children, if you aren't naughty and if the rabbit doesn't get drunk drinking too much carrot tea and fall on the elephant's trunk, next week I'll tell you another story. Good night.
