Tod: Peggy, did it ever occur to you that to me you'll always be young and beautiful?

No one who can see can say that to you. - - Peg, you're so beautiful... so beautiful outside, so rotten inside.

Peggy: You're no angel.

Tod: No. I guess we're two of a kind.

Scott: [Admiring the paintings] These must be worth a fortune now that you're...

[Scott hesitates to say 'blind.']

Tod: Since you're convinced I'm blind, go ahead... say it, but you're right. Now that I can't paint anymore, this stuff of mine gets more valuable every day. There's an old saying in my trade: a man never gets rich until he's dead. I assure you a blind painter's just the same as a dead man.

Scott: You know, I don't understand much about paintings.

Tod: There's nothing to understand! It hasn't anything to do with the brain - its the eye. A painting's like a woman - she either thrills you or she doesn't.

Scott: Well, in that case, its easy.

Tod: You know, I never really started to paint well until just before the lights went out. But, I think this is one of my best. There's something about the effects of the hair and the skin texture. Of course, nudes were never my strong suit; but, here I had a particularly beautiful subject. As you can see, this is a portrait of Peggy.

Scott: Why, excuse me Tod, I-I think you have the wrong painting. This is a picture of some roses and a newspaper.

Peggy: If you would sell the paintings, you wouldn't have to worry about writing.

Tod: Peg, I've never been able to make you understand that those paintings are my eyes! Everything I saw in life, I set down on canvas. If I let them go I lose the last connection to the past - strong and alive.
