The clip Meeting in the market from Double Indemnity (1944) You know that big market up on Los Feliz, Keyes? That's the place Phyllis and I had picked for a meeting place. I already had most of the plan in my head... ...but a lot of details had to be worked out. And she had to know them all by heart when the time came. We had to be very careful from now on. We couldn't let anybody see us together. We couldn't even talk to each other on the telephone. Not from her house or at my office, anyway. So she was to be in the market every morning about 11:00, buying stuff. And I could sort of run into her there any day I wanted to. Sort of accidentally on purpose. Walter, I wanted to... Not so loud. I wanted to talk to you, ever since yesterday. Let me talk first. It's all set. The accident policy came through. I've got it in my pocket. I got his check, too. I saw him down in the oil fields. He thought he was paying for the auto insurance. The check's just made out to the company, so it could be for anything. But you have to send a check for the auto insurance, see? It�ll be all right that way, because one of the cars is in your name. Open your bag. Quick. Can you get in the safe-deposit box? Yes. We both have keys. Fine. But don't put the policy in there yet. I'll tell you when. Remember, you never saw it, you never even touched it, you understand? I'm not a fool. Okay. When is he leaving on the train? That's just it. He isn't going. What? That's what I've been trying to tell you. The trip is off. What happened? Mister, could you reach me that package of baby food? That one up there? I don't know why they always put what I want on the top shelf. Go ahead. I'm listening. He had a fall-down at the well. Broke his leg. It's in a cast. Broke his leg? What do we do now, Walter? Nothing. We just wait. Wait for what? Until he can take the train. I told you it's got to be the train. But we can't wait. I can't go on like this. Look, we're not gonna grab a hammer and do it quick, just to get it over with. There are other ways. We're not gonna do it other ways.
