    Larry Talbot: Last night I went through another one of my horrible experiences. Many years ago I was bitten by a werewolf. Now, whenever the full moon rises I turn into a wolf myself.

  • Larry Talbot: I know you'll think I'm crazy, but in a half an hour the moon will rise and I'll turn into a wolf.

    Larry Talbot: [slamming Wilbur into a locker with Chick going in behind him] Listen! I might tear you limb from limb!

    Chick Young: He'll murder ya!

    Wilbur: [turns to Talbot] That's serious.

  • Larry Talbot: You wouldn't wanna run away with a murderer wouldja?

    Gwen Conliffe: Oh Larry, you're not. You know you're not.

    Larry Talbot: I killed Bela. I killed Richardson. If I stay here any longer, you can't tell who'll be next.

  • Maleva: You killed the wolf.

    Larry Talbot: Well, there's no crime in that is there?

    Maleva: The wolf was Bela.

    Larry Talbot: You think I don't know the difference between a wolf and a man?

    Maleva: Bela turned into a wolf and you killed him. A werewolf can only be killed by a silver bullet, or a silver knife...

    [looks down at Larry's walking stick]

    Maleva: ...or a stick with a silver handle.

    Larry Talbot: You're insane! I tell you, I killed a wolf! A PLAIN, ORDINARY WOLF!

  • Col. Paul Montford, chief constable: [showing Larry's stick to him] Is this your walking stick?

    Larry Talbot: Why, yes. That's the stick I killed the wolf with.

    [Sir John Talbot and Col. Montford look at Larry with great concern]

    Sir John Talbot: Larry, Bela the gypsy was killed last night. Your walking stick was found next to the body.

    Larry Talbot: You mean, Bela the fortune teller? But... I only saw a wolf.

  • Maleva: Whoever is bitten by a werewolf and lives becomes a werewolf himself.

    Larry Talbot: Ah, don't hand me that. You're just wasting your time.

    Maleva: The wolf bit you, didn't he?

    Larry Talbot: Yeah. Yeah he did!

  • Sir John Talbot: You can't run away.

    Larry Talbot: That's it! That's what she said.

    Sir John Talbot: Who?

    Larry Talbot: The gypsy woman.

    Sir John Talbot: Gypsy woman? Now we're getting down to it. She's been filling your mind with this gibberish. This talk of werewolves and pentagrams. You're not a child Larry, you're a grown man and you believe in the superstitions of a Gypsy woman!

  • Gwen Conliffe: [Gwen and Larry are taking a moonlight walk] So you're a fortune teller?

    Larry Talbot: Uh-huh.

    Gwen Conliffe: Is that how you knew about the earrings?

    Larry Talbot: Well, no exactly. You see, a telescope has a mighty sharp eye. It brings the stars so close that you feel you can almost touch them.

    Gwen Conliffe: [shocked] A telescope?

    Larry Talbot: Sure. And it does the same thing to people in their rooms - that is if you point it in the right direction.

    Gwen Conliffe: Oh you wouldn't.

    Larry Talbot: Well, now, I was only testing the refractor. I didn't know about you and all of sudden there you were.

    Gwen Conliffe: From now on I'll be sure to draw the curtains.

    Larry Talbot: Oh, don't do that, I mean, not on account of me.


    Larry Talbot: I mean, well, you know what I mean.

    Gwen Conliffe: [grinning] Yes, I'm afraid I do.

  • Larry Talbot: Don't try to make me believe that I killed a man when I know that I killed a wolf!

    Doctor Lloyd: [patronizing Larry] Yes, yes. We're all a little bit confused.

  • Larry Talbot: Oh its all Greek to me!

    Sir John Talbot: Well, it is Greek.

  • Sir John Talbot: Yes, that's the sign of the werewolf.

    Larry Talbot: That's just a legend though, isn't it?

    Sir John Talbot: Yes, but like most legends, it must have some basis in fact. It's probably an ancient explanation of the dual personality in each of us. How does it go? "Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and Autumn moon is bright."
