Quotes from Ray Milland movies and TV shows

Margot Mary Wendice: Oh, there you are. We thought you were never coming. What have you been up to?

Mark Halliday: Hello.

C.A. Swan: Just a minute. I'm supposed to have come in through these windows. Suppose they'd been locked?

C.A. Swan: Yes, but she may say that.
Tony Wendice: But she isn't going to say anything, is she?

Chief Insp. Hubbard: And you suggest that he came in by the window. And we know that he came in by that door.
Margot Mary Wendice: But he can't have come in that way. That door was locked. And there are only two keys. My husband had his with him, and mine was in my handbag. Here.
Chief Insp. Hubbard: You could have let him in.

Tony Wendice: It's funny to think that just a year ago, I sat in that Knightsbridge Pub actually planning to murder her. And I might have done it, if I hadn't seen something that changed my mind.

Tony Wendice: I saw you.

Tony Wendice: At exactly three minutes to eleven, you'll enter the house through the street door. You'll find the key to this door under the stair carpet here.
C.A. Swan: The fifth step?
Tony Wendice: That's the one. Go straight to the window, and hide behind the curtains. At exactly eleven o'clock, I shall go to the telephone in the hotel to call my boss. I shall dial the wrong number. This number. That's all I shall do.
