      • Della: This is delicious! What is it, Dr. Tachikawa?
        Paul: Della, please, that is one thing an Occidental never asks in an Oriental restaurant.
        Todd: Right. It's considered a flagrant invasion of privacy.
        Dr. Tachikawa: Don't listen to them, Miss Street.
        Todd: You know this is the first time in weeks, I've been able to joke about invasion of privacy.
        Perry: Well, I'm afraid it's nothing to joke about. Consider what it would ultimately mean: no privacy in police investigation, no privacy in the judge's chambers, not even in the jury room.
        Paul: Well we're coming up with some pretty good weapons. High-powered anti-bug generators, sensitive detectors, telephone scramblers.
        Dr. Tachikawa: Not so, Mr. Drake. The science will always be one step ahead.
        Della: There must be some way.
        Perry: There is, Della. One sure way. But it's pretty far out. Just plain old-fashioned personal integrity.
        Todd: You're right, Mr. Mason, that is pretty far out.
        Della: Maybe it would be easier if we all lived in cocoons.
        Paul: Della, there's one thing you will always find inside a cocoon ... a bug. (everyone breaks out in laughter)
