Quoted in: 
Actor: 

— Intimate or not, you’ve known this girl for three years. Did she kill that man?
— Yes and no.
— That doesn’t help.
— Yes, chiefly because she asked me to come here, change my story and back hers up.
— I didn’t kill him!
— And the no is a little less direct you see, when a man gets a girl pregnant, her normal reaction is to make him marry her, not kill him. See, the thing she wants most is a father for the baby, and a dead one is no good.
— That’s silly, I’m not pregnant. There’s only one way a girl can get pregnant, and it couldn’t have been that with me because it’s never happened.
