trouble's her middle name

Phyllis: I think you're rotten.
Walter Neff: I think you're swell - so long as I'm not your husband.

Walter Neff: That was all there was to it. Nothing had slipped, nothing had been overlooked.There was nothing to give us away. And yet, Keyes, as I was walking down the street to the drugstore, suddenly, it came over me that everything would go wrong. It sounds crazy Keyes, but it's true, so help me, I couldn't hear my own footsteps. It was the walk of a dead man.
