Man: I communicate authentically with the beyond ... and I say to your face you are nothing but a trickster.
Houdini: True. I claim no otherworldly powers. On the contrary, I exalt in my own. I've spent a lifetime developing my strength...and mastering physical manipulation. I do not seek to profit from the pain and loss of the bereaved...only to entertain.
Houdini: Thought about being a surgeon.
Surgeon: You? Whatever for?
Houdini: To do something...useful.
Surgeon: Useful? You've thrilled millions. I take my family to see you every time you play Detroit.
Houdini: What you do is real, Doc. I'm a fake.
Surgeon: Is it fake to make people happy? Fake to help millions escape their own problems for a while? Inspire them. I don't think that's fake. I think you're the realest person I ever met.
Houdini: You're the wife Of the great houdini!
Bess: Really? I thought I was just
a woman you put in a trunk (refer to a magic trick she performed in.) And took out when you felt like it.
Houdini: The bullets I pretended to catch in my teeth...now struck young men
throughout the world. The flying machines I loved were now used to kill. By the end of the war, a lot of folks I knew were gone.
Can you hear me? One way or another, we all want to escape. When ordinary life shackles us, We need to get away. Get away from boredom. From pain. From fear. But not me. Fear is how I know I'm alive. Unlike other people, I don't escape life. I escape death. Hell of a way to make a living. They say when you're gonna die, Your whole life flashes before your eyes. My name is erich weiss. But no one's called me that in a long time. I can escape from almost anything-- Handcuffs, straightjackets-- you name it. But the one thing I can't seem to escape from...Is me.
