  • (Gavin Gordon) "Oh, so you're surprised, shocked -- well I've seen better performances -- I remember you now, your name's not Warner, I've got it circled in my office with your picture on it. The Chicago police not so long ago were hunting for you in connection with the robbery."
  • (Unnamed) "You're right again, sir, they found me and they tried me and I proved my innocence and I was acquitted."

  • (Gavin Gordon) "Oh"
  • (Unnamed) "Oh yes sir, I followed your flashlight down through the trees -- then it disappeared. And suddenly as I was staring out into the darkness, I was struck by something on the back of the head. The next thing I knew, I was lying on the ground, I realized I'd been knocked out."

  • (Agnes Moorehead) "Yes the Bat, he caught her at the head of the stairs. We saw him rushing down the stairs as we came out of our rooms. I hurled that"

  • (Gavin Gordon) "I saw a man outside on the grounds. I went out and hunted him, I hunted him among the trees so far as the brook down near the back road, then I lost him. After that I'd give my own life than let this happen to Judy, but I told you to stay in your rooms and lock your doors and stay there. What was she doing at the head of those stairs?"
  • (Elaine Edwards) "That was my fault."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "They heard a strange noise, heavy pounding in one of the rooms on the third floor, we all heard it."

  • (Gavin Gordon) "What about your new butler?"

  • (Agnes Moorehead) "Can't you see that fire was setting us out of the house?"
  • (Unnamed) "Out of the hou -- are you talking about the--"

  • (Lenita Lane) "Like the door to a tomb."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "This is the Oaks, a house in the country which I've rented for the summer. As an author I write tales of mystery and murder, but the things that have happened in this house are far more fantastic than any book I've ever had published."

  • (Agnes Moorehead) "For instance?"
  • (Lenita Lane) "The housekeeper, the cook and the butler said that they heard strange noises at night, and the upstairs maid swore she met a man without a face coming up the back stairs."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "Oh so that's why they quit and left me to run this place without a staff."
  • (Lenita Lane) "They didn't tell you, Miss Gordy, but the truth is they were scared to stay."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "But you're still here, Lizzie. Haven't you seen anything?"
  • (Lenita Lane) "No -- no and even if I had, I ain't afraid of ghosts. They're afraid of me. Honest, Miss Gordy, a spiritualist once told me that ghosts was allergic to me."
  • (Lenita Lane) "But, but this bat fella they keep talking about in the paper; I; I think he'd be different."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "No, I don't think you'd have the same effect on him."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "Oh dear."
  • (Lenita Lane) "What are they trying to do, drive people away from this part of the country?"
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "Why? What does it say about the Bat?"

  • (Agnes Moorehead) "That's charming, I'll have to try it some time."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "In a book."

  • (Lenita Lane) "That ain't nothing, just something bumping against the house."
  • (Lenita Lane) "That's just the wind banging the door, pay no attention to it. Listen to this,"
  • (Lenita Lane) "'One of his victims who lived for a moment after she was found described the Bat as a man without a face'. Honestly, Miss Gordy, I think that woman was exaggerating."
  • (Lenita Lane) "That's just the taphestry at the top of the stairs."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "I know, I know, I've heard it before on a windy night."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "That sounds as if someone were on the stairs, I know there isn't, at least there shouldn't be."
  • (Lenita Lane) "Them's just the noises you hear in any old house on a windy night."
  • (Lenita Lane) "It says here that the Bat never leaves no fingerprints."
