Quotes:
From The Canterville Ghost (1986) (TV)
Harry Canterville: [Harry, Lucy & Jenny have just been told about the origins behind Sir Simon's hauntings by Mrs. Umney. As they all ascend the staircase, Jenny hesitantly moves forward, uncertainly eying the oil painting portrait at the top of the stairs of Sir Simon & Lady de Canterville] Jenny, don't you be frightened by any of this. Someone is trying to play a trick on us.
Lucy Canterville: [approaches Jenny] Your dad's right. Now, there is NO ghost.
Sir Simon de Canterville: [booming voice] WOMAN! YOU ARE MISTAKEN!
Mrs. Umney: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Mrs. Umney: [Mrs. Umney peels herself away from the wall and moves behind Harry, Lucy and Jenny on the lower staircase in a frightened panic] Um, um, um, uh, uh, uh...
Sir Simon de Canterville: [Sir Simon continues to descend towards the group, with slow measured steps] The owl beats against the window pane. The raven croaks from the ol' yule tree. When the wind goes moaning around the house like a long, lost soul, then the deeds of blood croaks... Murder... walk of lord... with shrieks. WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!
[rattles the chains in his hands, while shrieking]
Lucy Canterville: [the four are huddled in fear, but Lucy moves Harry's hand around her enough to announce] The sound effect of the chains is very good, but a little too loud. You can lower it, Hummel!
