After Brigid leaves, the telephone rings; it is the elusive "Mr. G." otherwise known as Caspar Gutman. He arranges a meeting with Spade. After this call ends, the door opens and a repentant Iva comes in. She confesses to Sam that she sent the police to his apartment because she was jealous when she saw him with another woman. Sam asks her where she was on the night of Miles' murder and she tells him that she was home all night, which he knows is a lie. He tells her that by insinuating to the police that Miles was killed because of her and Sam's affair, she has directed suspicion towards herself and sends her to see his lawyer, Sid Wise. He then goes to the Alexandria Hotel to keep his appointment with Mr. Gutman.
