Prof. Karl MeisterEdit

  • Incidentally I understand that some of your democratic citizens tried to eject the late professor Heitz. You better warn them not to attempt that sort of behaviour with me.
  • Don't use long words, Inspector; they don't suit you.


  • Dr. Namaroff: It isn't a pretty sight. Never ceases to amaze me why the most noble word of God, the human brain, is the most revolting to the human eye.


Professor Jules Heitz: I want to ask you a simple question.
Dr. Namaroff: Please...
Professor Jules Heitz: You were once a guest in my house in Berlin. You met both my sons - Bruno. in particular. You talked to him at some length.
Dr. Namaroff: I believe I did.
Professor Jules Heitz: What impression did you form of him?
Dr. Namaroff: Well, I thought he was... [Pausing to light a match]
Professor Jules Heitz: Normal?
Dr. Namaroff: Why, yes, of course.
Professor Jules Heitz: Yet capable of murder?
Dr. Namaroff: My dear Heitz, that is hardly a fair question. Given a certain set of circumstances, I believe almost everyone is capable of murder.

Dr. Namaroff: We are men of science. I don't believe in ghosts or evil spirits, and I don't think you do, either.
Professor Jules Heitz: That's one of the most unscientific remarks I have ever heard. I believe in the existence of everything which the human brain is unable to disprove.
