Notable dialogue

Blanche Hunt: "You wanted me to die so that you could get your hands on my savings. And what were you planning to do? Dump Ken and set off on a world cruise? Maybe catch yourself a rich man? Though you'd probably end up with the salesman passing himself off as the ship's captain! I might have made mistakes in my life, Deirdre, but at least I've never been in prison!"
