Synopsis[edit | edit source]
- My name is Victoria Winters. The surf pounds at the foot of Widows' Hill like the erratic beat of a frightened heart. A beat that is magnified in the minds of those who can find no relief from mounting tension.
Roger receives a call from Burke about their mystery meeting; Victoria and Roger discuss David's homicidal tendencies. They also talk about art and Victoria drops that she's having dinner with Maggie and Sam. Roger calls Mrs. Johnson, Bill's housekeeper, looking for him. Bill tells Sam to meet him, Burke, and Roger at Roger's office at 11pm. He also tells him that, if need be, he'll destroy him. Roger is furious and threatens to get Bill fired. Victoria overhears more than a little. Victoria puts two and two together to get 5; she believes Roger doesn't want her to meet Sam (whom she correctly posits is the man she met on the cliff in (5) because Roger's afraid Sam knows something about her past. Roger leaves at 10:25. At 11:00, Burke, Sam, and Roger (who arrived in that order) await Malloy.

- Victoria: I think I left a drawing in here.

- Victoria: Oh, thank you. I think David would kill me if I lost this.
- Roger: My son might kill you even if you didn't.
- Bill Malloy: You're coming Sam. You're coming. I'll make up your mind of that!
- Sam: What are you trying to do, you want to destroy me!
- Roger: What are you trying to do to me, are you trying to destroy me!
- Bill Malloy: Destroy me, that's what Sam said, the same words.
