Did you know, Mr. Torrance, that your son is attempting to bring an outside party into this situation? Did you know that?
He is, Mr. Torrance.
A nigger cook.
Your son has a very great talent. I don't think you are aware how great it is. That he is attempting to use that very talent against your will.
He is a very willful boy.
Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir.
It's his mother. She, uh, interferes.
Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don't mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn't care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I "corrected" them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I "corrected" her.
