The Black Dahlia (2006) Poster

Aaron Eckhart: Lee Blanchard



  • The Coroner : On gross pathology, we have a female Caucasian between sixteen and thirty. The cadaver is presented in two halves with bisection level with the umbilicus. Through and through lacerations of both mouth corners. No visible bruising on the neck. Rectangular abrasions on the wing tips of the sphenoid bones. And, oh! A puncture wound, here, in the palm. On the palm of the right hand. Investigation of upper half abdominal cavity reveals no free-flowing blood. Intestines, stomach, spleen, liver - all removed.

    Russ Millard : Is it all right to smoke, doctor?

    The Coroner : She won't mind. Lower half of cadaver reveals removal of all reproductive organs. Both legs broken at the knee. Questions?

    Russ Millard : What's your best guess?

    The Coroner : Well, here's what she wasn't - she wasn't raped and she wasn't pregnant. In terms of the nitty gritty, the cause of death is either the mouth wound here or she was beaten to death with something like a baseball bat.

    Lee Blanchard : What about her insides?

    The Coroner : They came out posthumously. I'd say then he drained the blood from the body and washed it clean, probably in a bathtub.

  • Kay Lake : Well, this is nice, isn't it?

    Ofcr. Dwight "Bucky" Bleichert : What?

    Kay Lake : You and Lee partners. It's nice. It couldn't have worked out better if you'd planned it, could it, Dwight?

    Ofcr. Dwight "Bucky" Bleichert : Well, I could've beat him.

    Lee Blanchard : Except you didn't.

    Kay Lake : I don't know, sweetheart. Bucky was somebody back in the day. And here we all are...

    Ofcr. Dwight "Bucky" Bleichert : It's nice.

    Kay Lake : It's more than nice. Might even be worth those front teeth of yours, Dwight.

    [Lee and Kay laugh, and Bucky stands up to raise his glass] 

    Ofcr. Dwight "Bucky" Bleichert : A toast... to Proposition B.

    Lee Blanchard : [raising his glass]  To the Bleichert-Blanchard rematch, bigger than Louis-Schmeling.

    Kay Lake : [raising her glass]  To my... supercops!

  • [after an earthquake shakes the police station] 

    Lee Blanchard : [on the phone]  Yeah, it's an earthquake. I heard it.
