Frederick Loren: It was my wife's idea to have our guests come in funeral cars. Her sense of humor is, shall we say, original? She's so amusing. I dreamed up the hearse, it's empty now but after a night in the house on Haunted Hill, who knows?
Frederick Loren: Would you adore me as much if I were poor? No, all you want to be is a lovely widow.
Frederick Loren: Wasn't there a man who threw his wife into a wine vat or something?
Watson Pritchard: That was in the cellar. There's been a murder almost everywhere in this house.
Frederick Loren: The caretakers will leave at midnight, locking us in here until they come back in the morning. Once the door is locked, there's no way out. The windows have bars that a jail would be proud of, and the only door to the outside locks like vault. There's no electricity, no phone, no-one within miles, so no way to call for help.
Watson Pritchard: Like a coffin.
Frederick Loren: It's almost time to lock up the house and then your party will really begin. I wonder how it will end.
Mark MacPherson: On Saturday when our men went to the hotel to tell you that Laura Hunt was dead you seemed sincerely shocked.
Shelby Carpenter: I was. I hadn't expected that mistake.
Mark MacPherson: But you had your alibi ready no matter who was dead.
Shelby Carpenter: For the last time, Louise, will you marry me?
Louise, Ann's Cook: No, but I cooked some chicken liver for you.
Oliver 'Ollie' Higgins: You gave me the idea, doc.
Dr. Warren Chapin: Just because poisons exist, is no reason to use them.
Dr. Warren Chapin: Ladies and gentlemen, just a word of warning. If any of you are not convinced that you have a tingler of your own, the next time you're frightened in the dark... don't scream.
Oliver 'Ollie' Higgins: It isn't as though I'd taken out a pistol and shot her or taken a knife and stabbed her, is it doc?
Dr. Warren Chapin: If you kill anybody deliberately, it's murder. No matter how you do it.
