  • You stole the dead woman's shoe?
  • Are we hoping the ghost is going to have to use the potty?
  • [showing off her new convertible] It's a beautiful thing, alimony. You lose a husband, you get a car. Think it'll help me pick up dudes?
  • I have one in the trunk!

Claire Spencer[edit]

  • [later] Pick up any dudes yet?
  • Hello, Dr. Spencer.
  • No, no I'm not.
  • You had an affair with a girl who threatened to kill herself, and now there is a presence in our house. A young, blonde girl. Don't you get it? She did it, Norman. She's dead... and now she's trying to hurt you... or both of us.
  • There's a ghost in my house. I saw her in the water, beside me, in the baththub.
  • She looks like me. Oh... only she had green eyes.
  • Oh, great! "Could you check in on my wife? She's hearing voices!" Yeah, wait until that gets around.
  • Norman, this isn't about you! Something is happening to me. And it's... it's not to get even, and it's not some warped bid for attention. Something is happening in our house, whether you like it or not!

Norman Spencer[edit]

  • You're not yourself today, are you?
  • I'm going to have the police check on the house while I'm gone.
  • The first time I met you, all I wanted was to spend the rest of my life with you. [shakes head] Not going to happen now.


  • What does she look like?
