      • Quote 1
        Marilyn Sidwell:…I don't belong in a mental institution. I'm there only because it suits other people's needs. I'm as sane as you are, Mr. Orwell….
        Orwell [voiceover]: Being as sane as I am may not be the highest recommendation in the world….

        Quote 2
        Orwell [voiceover], on being in mental sanitarium: If you were ever drafted, you might begin to understand how it felt--a little bit unreal, like walking underwater. And, like the army, once you were in, it was almost impossible to get out—the louder you protested you didn't belong there, the more it seems you did….There was really only one way to be sure—if you had a key in your pocket and could go home at night, you were sane.
        Orwell, to Lamport, an obviously disturbed patient: Do you have a key?
        Lamport: No.. a key? Why?
        Orwell: Then why are you smiling?
        Lamport: I know your secret.
        Orwell: What's that?
        Lamport: You're sane….
        Orwell: How'd you know I was sane?
        Lamport: We're the only two!

        Quote 3
        Billings, referring to dead body on beach:…His body washed up there and one of the fishermen snagged him on his line…
        Cole: …Hope that fisherman had a license.

        Quote 4
        Quinlan, looking at scrap of paper: Piece of the San Diego telephone book. All in the M's.
        Cole: Anything marked or underlined?
        Manny: No…better check them all.
        Cole, frustrated: There must be 30 names here, or more.
        Quinlan: I didn't ask you to count them, Frank.

        Quote 5
        Marakian: I killed him with a scalpel.
        Arthur Rankin: Old habits die hard. Why don't you get yourself a drink? It will steady your hand.
        Marakian: I was a good doctor.
        Rankin: You were a butcher.

        Quote 6
        Marilyn: Wind, sand, and stars...the sea...sunshine and shadows...rain. They're all in bed at night. That outing…was the first chance I've had in two years...was the only chance…maybe the last chance...If you make too much trouble here, and create too many disturbances, they do things to you....Harry, I'm glad you're here....

        Quote 7
        Cole, upon finding the body of Dr. Marakian, an obvious suicide: I was reading some statistics the other day. Highest suicide rate in the country is among doctors. I'll bet you never guess what kind of doctors had the highest rate.
        Quinlan, sarcastically: Gynecologists, Frank?
        Cole, sincerely but perplexed: No!! Psychiatrists
        Quinlan: The mind reels.

        Quote 8
        Marilyn, being led away by sanitarium attendants: …. I stepped on a sea urchin. They have these little spines—they're poisonous, you know. Some people have a violent reaction to them. But they have to work their way out....And, then sometimes, they don't ever work their way out.
        Orwell [voiceover]: The review board had confirmed the diagnosis: paranoid schizophrenia. People get better, they get worse. There are remissions, but there's still no real cure. I felt like screaming. But I didn't—you can get into a lot of trouble screaming. I decided to run instead. It didn't do much good. I did another thing that didn't do much good either: I locked the door to my house. Not that I was worried about anyone trespassing. I just liked the feeling of having a key in my pocket.
