Wendy, let me explain something to you. Whenever you come in here and interrupt me, you're breaking my concentration. You're distracting me. And it will then take me time to get back to where I was. You understand?Yeah.Now, we're going to make a new rule. When you come in here and you hear me typing

[types]

or whether you DON'T hear me typing, or whatever the FUCK you hear me doing; when I'm in here, it means that I am working, THAT means don't come in. Now, do you think you can handle that?Yeah.Good. Now why don't you start right now and get the fuck out of here? Hm?

Mom?Yeah?Do you really want to go and live in that hotel for the winter?Sure I do. It'll be lots of fun.Yeah, I guess so. Anyway, there's hardly anybody to play with around here.Yeah, I know. It always takes a little time to make new friends.Yeah, I guess so.What about Tony? He's lookin' forward to the hotel, I bet.

[Moving his finger to speak as "Tony"]

No he isn't, Mrs. Torrance.Now come on, Tony, don't be silly.

[as Tony]

I don't want to go there, Mrs. Torrance.Well, how come you don't want to go?

[as Tony]

I just don't.Well, let's just wait and see. We're all going to have a real good time.

What are you doing down here?

[sobbing]

I just wanted to talk to you.Okay, let's talk. What do you wanna talk about?I can't really remember.You can't remember... Maybe it was about... Danny? Maybe it was about him. I think we should discuss Danny. I think we should discuss what should be done with him. What should be done with him?I don't know.I don't think that's true. I think you have some very definite ideas about what should be done with Danny and I'd like to know what they are.Well, I think... maybe... he should be taken to a doctor.You think "maybe" he should be taken to a doctor?Yes."When" do you think "maybe" he should be taken to a doctor?As soon as possible.[mocking/imitating her] As soon as possible.Jack! What are... you...You think his health might be at stake.Y-Yes!You are concerned about him.Yes!And are you concerned about ME?Of course I am!Of course you are! Have you ever thought about my responsibilities?Oh Jack, what are you talking about?Have you ever had a SINGLE MOMENT'S THOUGHT about my responsibilities? Have you ever thought, for a single solitary moment about my responsibilities to my employers? Has it ever occurred to you that I have agreed to look after the OVERLOOK Hotel until May the FIRST. Does it MATTER TO YOU AT ALL that the OWNERS have placed their COMPLETE CONFIDENCE and TRUST in me, and that I have signed a letter of agreement, a CONTRACT, in which I have accepted that RESPONSIBILITY? Do you have the SLIGHTEST IDEA, what a MORAL AND ETHICAL PRINCIPLE IS, DO YOU? Has it ever occurred to you what would happen to my future, if I were to fail to live up to my responsibilities? Has it ever occurred to you? HAS IT?

[swings the bat]

Stay away from me!

Hey. Wasn't it around here that the Donner Party got snowbound?I think that was farther west in the Sierras.Oh.What was the Donner Party?They were a party of settlers in covered-wagon times. They got snowbound one winter in the mountains. They had to resort to cannibalism in order to stay alive.You mean they ate each other up?They had to, in order to survive.Jack...Don't worry, Mom. I know all about cannibalism. I saw it on TV.See, it's OK. He saw it on the television.
