Dark Passage

-Will it take long?
-90 minutes. No more, no less.

l thought it took longer than that.
You're not going to operate on me
with that, are you?

Before l can start on you,
you have to be shaved clean and close.

l perfected my own special technique
12 years ago...

before l was kicked out
of the Medical Association.

My method is based
partly on calling a spade a spade.

l don't monkey around.
-Have you got the money?
-Yeah, you want it now?

Sam said you could afford $200.
Put it on the table there.

Ever see any botched plastic jobs?
lf a man like me didn't like a fellow...
he could surely fix him up for life.
Make him look like a bulldog or a monkey.
l'll make you look older, but good.
-l'll make you look as if you've lived.
-l have, Doc.

l hope l'm not a coward when you start in.
We're all cowards.
There's no such thing as courage.
There's only fear.

A fear of getting hurt and a fear of dying.
That's why human beings live so long.
You won't feel any pain with this.
l'll give you some shots
that'll freeze your face.

Now, just close your eyes.
l've got a fine anesthetic.
Used it in the last war.
lt's in your bloodstream now.
