: Delia Deetz, welcome home. Delia
: [being kissed
] Charles... Charles
: It's okay, there's no damage. See? It's okay. A good sturdy comfy craftsmanship. And look at that kitchen. You're finally gonna be able to cook a decent meal.
[Evaluating her new home
: A little gasoline... blowtorch... no problem.
: [while Lydia shows them the attic
] Fabulous. 'Otho Fenlock's Locked Door Ghosts' Probably committed suicide up there. I'm totally enchanted. Delia
: They're in there? They must live like animals. Charles
: It's locked. How'd they get in? Delia
: [bangs on the door
] Open this door, you dead people, or we'll bust it down and we'll drag you out by the ropes you hang yourselves with! Lydia
: Shh! They didn't commit suicide. Delia
: It doesn't matter. Lydia, I have a chance to teach you something here: you have got to take the upper hand in all situations or people, whether they're dead or alive, will walk all over you.
[about the house
: There's absolutely no organic flowthrough. Delia
: I noticed that too; it's like a giant... ant farm.
: Charles, I will not stop living and breathing art just because you need to relax. Charles
: Ha. Delia
: I'm here with you. I will live with you in this hellhole, but I must express myself. If you don't let me gut out this house and make it my own, I will go insane, and I will take you with me! Charles
: [after a long pause
] Yeah, well you know, maybe the house could use a little remodeling. Uh... But, why don't you just leave this room alone, okay? Delia
[Delia and Otho leave as Charles goes furious
] I'm gonna get her.
: They don't wanna come down. Delia
: Charles... Otho
: Why not? Lydia
: I think the reason is, is that they were trying to scare you away, and you didn't get scared. Delia
: Please, they're dead. It's a little late to be neurotic.
: As soon as we get settled, we'll build you a dark room in the basement, okay? Lydia
: My whole life is a dark room. One big dark room. Delia
: So you were miserable in New York City, and now you're going to be miserable out here in the sticks. At least someone's life hasn't been upheaved.
: What happened to these people? Delia
: They died. Oh, look, an indoor outhouse.
: [talking to a workman
] If you tell me what you do, I'll tell you why my husband will fire you.
: [as Bernard, Grace, and Beryl leaves not convinced of the ghost
] This was not a hallucination. This was real. We all just experienced a super-powerful, paranormal experience, and it was real. Bernard
: Delia, you are a flake. You have always been a flake. If you insist on frightening people, do it with your sculpture.
[Bernard slams the door as he leaves
: Drive carefully! Delia
] I'm dead.
[reading The Handbook for the Living and the Dead
: This thing reads like stereo instructions.
[Harry Belafonte's "Shake Shake Senora" plays in the background
: Oh, sounds like Lydia got an "A" on the math test.
[a head sculpture of the Betelgeuse snake appears next to him
[Charles falls out of his chair. Delia pulls the sculpture up and smiles
: He likes it.
: This is my art, and it is dangerous! Do you think I want to die like this?
: I have a feeling there's something very interesting behind that door. Delia
] Yeah. Ghosts. The people who died in this house and they want us OUT of here. Well, let's do them a favor...
: Oh look, an indoor outhouse
