Melody Allen: Here’s a horse pistol.
[Gives him the gun. Horatio turns to the horse behind him]

Mildred Dean: [to June about Dr. Greenway] Last week he said that the rash I had wasn’t an allergy, it was a guilt complex because I kicked your grandmother in the bustle when I was 2 years old.

Sheldon Gage: What’s the matter, Tom?
Dr. Ralph Greenway: Bottles flying through the air, glasses filling themselves up, and somebody tooted into my stethoscope!

Emily: [Calling to the ghosts of the well] Analog dos mirabus spirae cuttar, nimbus hypnosticos lazzum bid-dar.

Horatio Prim: I don’t want those people coming around here saying, [singing] Here lie the dirty traitors! Here lie the dirty traitors![crying]

Dr. Ralph Greenway: Emily! When you came in here just now, did you or did you not kick me?
Emily: Certainly not.
Dr. Ralph Greenway: [getting worried] Oh!

Horatio Prim: [he and Melody collide and are wearing each other’s clothes] Odds bodkins, we’re all mixed up!
[they run into each other again and get back into their own clothes]

June Prescott: [hears machine gunfire] It must be the radio downstairs!

[runs over to Melody]
Horatio Prim: That thing just talked to me!

Mildred Dean: Oh, fine. A ghost to ghost broadcast.
