Criss Cross

BRUNO
(ignoring the remark)
It's so simple, too.  A couple of
fellows meet accidentally, like you
and me.  No connection between them
at all.  Never saw each other before.
Each of them has somebody he'd like
to get rid of, but he can't murder
the person he wants to get rid of.
He'll get caught.  So they swap
murders.
GUY
Swap murders?
BRUNO
Each fellow does the other fellow's
murder.  Then there is nothing to
connect them.  The one who had the
motive isn't there.  Each fellow
murders a total stranger.  Like you
do my murder and I do yours.
GUY
(with relief)
We're coming into my station.
BRUNO
For example, your wife, my father.
Criss-cross.
