Vertigo: "freedom and power":
Elster & Scottie - & Hitchcock?
|Gavin Elster: "The things that spell San Francisco to me are disappearing fast. . . . I should have liked to live here then. Color, excitement, power, freedom. . . ."|
|Pop Liebel: "The beautiful Carlotta, the sad Carlotta. . . . A rich man, a powerful man. It is not an unusual story. He took her. . . . Then he threw her away. . . . You know, men could do that in those days. They had the power and the freedom."|
|"I need you to be Madeleine for a while, then when it's over we'll both be free."
|"And then what did he do? Did he train you? Did he rehearse you? Did he tell you exactly what to do, what to say? You were a very apt pupil too, weren't you? You were a very apt pupil. . . ."
|Scottie: He made you over, didn't he? He made you over just like I made you over, only better. . . . Not only the clothes and the hair, but the looks and the manner and the words. . . . Oh Judy, with all of his wife's money and all that freedom and power, he ditched you. What a shame. He knew he was safe. . . . I loved you so, Madeleine.
Judy: I walked into danger and let you change me because I loved you. . . .
Scottie: Too late. It's too late, there's no bringing her back.
