Scene 2

Scene 2

  • In his friend Midge's apartment, we learn that Scottie has had to retire from the police force because of his fear of heights, which causes severe vertigo.
  • Scottie says that he's gotten a call from Gavin Elster, someone he knew in college but hasn't heard from since. They wonder what the call could be about.
  • Midge says she's asked her doctor and "only another emotional shock" will get rid of Scottie's phobia.
  • Half-joking, Scottie says he can get over it himself, but when he tries to get used to small heights by standing on step ladders, things don't go well. He faints when he looks out the window, and falls into Midge's arms.
