: Norman was not convicted of murder. He was found not guilty by reasons of insanity, and since he is no longer insane, he has the right to live a normal life like you and I. Lila Loomis
: That's just legal hocus pocus, and when he murders again you will be directly responsible.
: You could stop stuffing bloody towels in toilets and peering through peep-holes in the wall. Lila Loomis
: What are you talking about? Mary
: The things you're doing to Norman.
: What about his victims? I have a petition here signed by 743 people against Norman Bates' release, including the relatives of the seven people he murdered. Judge
: Madam, please sit down. This matter is being represented by the district attorney.
: Don't you realize they're going to release a homicidal maniac. Judge
: Sit down, Mrs. Loomis. Lila Loomis
: Why bother? It's all too obvious. Our courts are protecting criminals not their victims.
Sheriff Al Chambers
: Your detective told you he couldn't come right back because he was goin' to question Norman Bates' mother. Right? Lila Crane
: Yes. Sheriff Al Chambers
: Norman Bates' mother has been dead and buried in Greenlawn Cenetery for the past ten years! Eliza Chambers
: I helped Norman pick out the dress she was buried in. Periwinkle blue. Sheriff Al Chambers
: 'Tain't only local history, Sam. It's the only case of murder and suicide on Fairvale ledgers.
: You mean the old woman I saw tonight wasn't Mrs. Bates? Sheriff Al Chambers
: Now wait a minute, Sam, are you *sure* you saw an old woman? Sam Loomis
: Yes! In the house behind the motel! I called and I pounded, but she just ignored me! Sheriff Al Chambers
: You mean to tell me you saw Norman Bates' mother? Lila Crane
: It had to be - because Arbogast said so too. And the young man wouldn't let him see her because she was too ill. Sheriff Al Chambers
: Well, if the woman up there is Mrs. Bates... who's that woman buried out in Greenlawn Cemetery?
: Look, that old woman, whoever she is, she told Arbogast something. I want her to tell us the same thing. Sam Loomis
: Hold it, you can't go up there. Lila Crane
: Why not? Sam Loomis
: Bates. Lila Crane
: Then, let's find him. One of us can keep him occupied while the other gets to the old woman. Sam Loomis
: You'll never be able to hold him still even if he doesn't want to be held. And, I don't like you going into that house alone. Lila Crane
: I can handle a sick old woman!
Dr. Fred Richmond
: No. I got the whole story - but not from Norman. I got it - from his mother. Norman Bates no longer exists. He only half-existed to begin with. And now, the other half has taken over. Probably for all time. Lila Crane
: Did he kill my sister? Dr. Fred Richmond
: Yes, - and no.
