Carol Anne: So, after Alice fell down the hole, why'd she drink from that bottle?

Diane: Because it said, 'Drink me' on it.

Carol Anne: Oh. Were they gonna capture her... and take her someplace bad?

Diane: Yes, but Alice gets home alright, remember?

Carol Anne: Did she know why they wanted to hurt her?

Diane: I don't think so, honey.

Carol Anne: 'Cause I know.

Diane: You know what?

Carol Anne: Why they're here.

Diane: Why, baby? Why are they here?

Diane: Steven, we are almost broke.

Steve Freeling: Okay, we're, we're broke, but we're not, we're not starving!

Diane: Okay. But I don't happen to like having to live off my mother, and I think that we deserve a house of our own again someday.

Steve Freeling: Aw, honey, geez... see, that's the difference between you and me, Diane, I am into downward mobility. I'm not settling for it, I'm *into* it, I - I like getting out there in the streets and meetin' those people; I like selling vacuums, I like carrying the pipes and the apparatus in my little demo case.

[snaps his fingers]

Steve Freeling: Let's get the kids up and we'll, we'll paint the car different colors, kind of day-glo, like we used to do when were kind of *freaky,* you know - the *Freaky Freelings,* on the road again! The family whose house disappeared! Watch them find it, Diane! I'm not gonna get upset about this but I'll tell you something, I'm writing them back, and when I sign that letter I'm signing *Mr. President!*

Taylor: [talking about Robbie] He wants to be a man.

Diane: Well, there are a lot of ways to be a man. I'm not sure wearing claw marks and warpaint is one of them.

Taylor: How would you know?

Diane: What?

Taylor: You're not a man, are you?

Diane: OK, I'm not a man. But you're not a mother. It is my job to do everything I can to make my children part of a normal world. A world of schools and friends and lovers and families of they're own someday.

Taylor: Well, that's good.

Diane: Right, I know. And I hope that they'll learn to forget all of this soon.

Taylor: You can't learn by forgetting.

Diane: Well, what would you have me do? I mean they're just children for God's sake.

Taylor: Children have fought wars. They have built nations. They are strong and have courage. Don't treat them any less than that because they're young.

Steve Freeling: [to Taylor] You can stay in the house, OK. You can have my aura, my spirits, the ghosts, the whole deal, the whole casaba. But keep your hands off my car, OK. Hands off! Its worse than it was before.

Steve Freeling: Angry? That car is pissed!

Kane: [to Steve about Taylor] Please! Open your hearts and your minds to what I am saying. He is dangerous. I can see that he has a strong hold on this family. Who do your wife and children turn to with they're problems? They turn to him, now don't they? They don't trust you anymore, but what you fear, is that you're not man enough to hold this family together.

Steve Freeling: [stunned] How do you know?

Kane: Because, I'm smart. And I'm your friend. And I know... what you are thinking.

Steve Freeling: How?

Kane: Now, let me in, and let's talk about it. Let me in.

Steve Freeling: [wavering] You are my friend.

Kane: Let me in.

Carol Anne Freeling: [from somewhere in the house] Daddy?

Kane: Now! Before its too late!

Steve Freeling: No!

Kane: [furious] You're gonna die in there! All of you! YOU ARE GONNA DIE!

Steve Freeling: Get the hell out of here!

Kane: Sorry to see, you're still unconvinced. Pleasure visiting with you.

Taylor: You feel like a leaf at the mercy of the wind, don't you?

Steve Freeling: Yeah, that's right. That's me.

Taylor: Since the day you were born one way or another, someone has been doing something to you.

Steve Freeling: No I... I don't think that's true.

Taylor: And they've been doing something to you against your will, and now you're feeling helpless, like a leaf in the wind.

Steve Freeling: Taylor, it would help me out a lot if you just say what's on your mind so I can understand you.

Taylor: You understand me. No matter how much you like to feel sorry for yourself, you have to change that. I'm a warrior. A warrior would rather be defeated and die, than act against his nature. That is the path you have chosen to take, whether you know it or not. You should assume full responsibility.

Steve Freeling: Responsibility for what?

Taylor: Responsibility for everything. Everything in your world.

Taylor: He's still here. He feels she belongs to him.

Diane: But why?

Taylor: I'm not sure, but he's used to getting what he wants.

Steve Freeling: Taylor, who is he? What is he?

Taylor: He's a man filled with the demon, lost in a dimension that surrounds our world. This entity believes that his world and ours are the same.

Diane: But why doesn't he know he's dead?

Taylor: Because he isn't.

Steve Freeling: But how can that be?

Taylor: Nothing really dies, like when a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. Death only transforms us into another state of being. This man was evil, and his soul remains evil, because he chooses not to see the light, and pass on to another state of consciousness.

Steve Freeling: How are we gonna beat this thing?

Taylor: Until we learn how to defeat him, we do not let him win.

Steve Freeling: [sarcastically] That's a hell of a plan! That's a lot of crap!

Diane: I suppose you have a plan of your own?

Steve Freeling: THAT'S A LOT OF CRAP!

Taylor: Listen, don't come apart now. This spirit is very clever. He knows your strength is your love, and he hates you for that. He's been trying to pull this family apart, and he will continue to try. If he succeeds, he will possess Carol-Anne... and destroy your spirit.

Taylor: You must take your family back to Cuesta Verde.

Steve Freeling: What?

Taylor: The evil spirit that is stalking you. It knows who you are. Where you are. How to find you. What your weaknesses are. Your best bet would be to confront him, surprise him on his own ground.

Steve Freeling: But Taylor, what about Diane and the kids?

Taylor: They are your power, and you are they'res.

Steve Freeling: Are things desperate Taylor?

Taylor: What you see as desperate, I see as inevitable.

Diane: [Steve, possessed by Kane, starts groping Diane] Honey, don't. Not now.

Steve Freeling: [getting angry] Why? When?

Diane: What do you mean?

Steve Freeling: Diane, I have needs too.

Diane: Well it seems to me your needs have been fulfilled by the bottle tonight.

[Steve comes up behind Diane and grabs her]

Diane: Oh, Steven don't!

Steve Freeling: Diane, are you accusing me of being drunk?

Diane: I'm not accusing you of anything.

Steve Freeling: Yes you are, but that's what you're thinking.

Diane: No, I'm not.

Steve Freeling: Yes, but that's what you're thinking. I know you and that's what you're thinking.

Diane: Spare me, Steven.

Steve Freeling: Diane! Do you remember just the other day, when you were seven and you were helping your Mommy, plant flowers in the garden? You saw it clearly.

Diane: How the hell do you know that?

Steve Freeling: Because I am smart.

[getting angrier]

Steve Freeling: You think that all of our troubles are because of Carol-Anne! You wish Carol-Anne had never been given BIRTH TO! You never wanted

[shouting]

Steve Freeling: CAROL-ANNE!

[Diane tries to shush Steve]

Steve Freeling: But you thought it! You thought it! You thought it! You thought it!

Diane: No!

Steve Freeling: You thought it, baby! Shush! You thought about it! You thought that! You thought it, shush! You thought it! Diane has secrets!

Steve Freeling: Taylor said we go back together as a family, that's all of us.

Robbie Freeling: Do you believe him, Dad?

Diane: Honey, it was real smart of you to hide in the car like that.

Carol Anne Freeling: It wasn't my idea. Taylor said it was the only safe place.

Robbie Freeling: Dad, do you believe him?

Steve Freeling: I... I do... I do believe him son... I do.

Steve Freeling: OK, its yours, take it.

Diane: We thank you.

Steve Freeling: It started right up.

Robbie Freeling: Dad, you gave our car away?

Steve Freeling: Yes.

Diane: [seeing a vision of Kane and his followers] It is him, he's the preacher. They follow him in death as they did in life. They seal themselves into a cavern because Kane says the end of the world is coming.

Kane: Come with me!

Diane: The day for the end comes and goes, but Kane won't let them leave. No, no.

Tangina Barrons: Oh, Diane. Yes, it all makes sense now. When you brought Carol-Anne back to this world, his followers became restless because they had tasted the light of her being, her lifeforce.

Diane: And now he wants her back.

Tangina Barrons: This person is no longer human. He is the Beast.
