What Lies Beneath (2000)

Claire Spencer: There's a ghost in my house. I saw her in the water, beside me, in the bathtub.
Psychiatrist: What does she look like?
Claire Spencer: She looked like me. Oh... only she had green eyes.

Norman: I'm going to have the police check on the house while I'm gone.
Claire Spencer: Oh great! "Could you check in on my wife? She's hearing voices!" Yeah, wait until that gets around.

Claire Spencer: 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!

Claire Spencer: Hello, Doctor Spencer.
Norman: Mrs. Spencer.
Claire Spencer: Forbidden fruit. You got a problem with that?

Claire Spencer: I want you to answer one question. Did you have anything to do with her disappearance?
Norman: Yes. I had an affair with her. And when I tried to break it off... she became unstable. She came out here to the house. She threatened to kill herself... or you. I didn't think she'd go through with any of it. But then she... She disappeared.

Claire Spencer: [to Norman] Don't touch me. Get away from me! Get out! I said, get out!

Norman: Claire! You alright, Claire?
Claire Spencer: The braid. Where's the braid?

[last lines]
Claire Spencer: Please. Think of Caitlin. Please don't. Please don't.
Norman: Shhh.

Claire Spencer: That girl must be brought up.

Norman: Claire stop! You're overreacting.
Claire Spencer: Don't tell me how to react.
Norman: Will you keep your voice down!
Claire Spencer: I WILL NOT!

Claire Spencer: What? What are you afraid of?
Mary Feur: [hysterical] That one day I'll just, just disappear.
