[Norma starts to hit Norman]

Young Norman Bates: What's the matter? What did I do?

Norma Bates: Nothing, nothing, nothing!

Young Norman Bates: Then why are you hitting me?

Norma Bates: Who else can I hit?

[gives him the newspaper]

Norma Bates: There not going to build it where the highway is. No, because from there the world would still be able to see us. It's gonna be miles away. Nobody will even know we're here!

Norma Bates: They're putting us out of business. What am I going to do? How will we live? You, you're just like my father. Never a drop of sympathy!

Young Norman Bates: I'm sorry.

Norma Bates: Sorry for what? What the hell good are you if you can't show a little sympathy?

Young Norman Bates: Well, I don't know how.

Norma Bates: No, you just know how to cause trouble. Because of you my bladder's damaged. I can't hold water. That's why I'm always running to the toilet. Did you know that?

Young Norman Bates: Yes, I know.

Norma Bates: I was fine until I gave birth to you. You caused a lot of damage. I should have gotten rid of you the day I found out I was gonna have you. Not one thing you've ever said or done has made all I've gone through with you worthwile! Not one blessed thing! I should have killed you in my womb. You sure as hell tried to kill me getting out of it.

Norman: I know that in the cosmic scheme of things, little boys are small, but some days they can be... some days little boys can be giants.

Chet Rudolph: Hi there, Normie.

Young Norman Bates: You take my father's robe off!

Chet Rudolph: No underwear. You see, Norman, you only want to be naked around a lady when you're having sex with her. Any other time, it just ain't respectable.

[chuckles]

Chet Rudolph: Good toast.

[Norman is on top of Norma]

Norma Bates: Get off of me! You are going to forget once and for all about that filthy thing of yours! You'll forget that you even have one of those things! Do you understand me, boy?

[Norma puts a dress and lipstick on Norman]

Norma Bates: There, that should help you forget it. See, look at yourself, boy. Girl. Yes, girl.

Young Norman Bates: No, not a girl.

Norma Bates: Mama's little girl.

[puts him in the closet]

Young Norman Bates: No. No, Mother, please! Please, Mother. Don't leave me here.

Norma Bates: [opens door, hands him a pitcher] Here, take this! You're gonna need it. You're gonna stay locked in there until you learn not to say "No" to your mother when she tells you you're a girl.

Norma Bates: And you'll probably have to make wee-wee and you'll squat over this. That's all that thing of yours is for, making wee-wee. You clear on that? Answer me, you clear on that, Norma?

[closes door]

Norma Bates: [sobbing] No, please, Mother! Don't leave me here alone! Dear God, don't let her... Please, Mother.

Dr. Leo Richmond: This abuse your mother heaped on you, you didn't mind it so long as it was just the two of you, isn't that what you're trying to say?

Dr. Leo Richmond: As bad as it was, it was okay, perhaps even enjoyable until she brought home a boyfriend?

Dr. Leo Richmond: Could it be there was a little jealousy there, Ed?

Norman Bates: If the doctor's trying to turn this into some kind of an incest tragedy, tell him to forget it, Fran.

Fran Ambrose: Forget it, Doc.

Norman Bates: I mean, if it was that kind of thing, I wouldn't have killed all those other women, would I?

Dr. Leo Richmond: How many did you kill, do you remember?

[Norma finds pornography in Norman's bedroom]

Norma Bates: You dirty little pig! Take that right out to the garbage!

[Norman starts to put his clothes on]

Norma Bates: No! Go as you are! Maybe the rain will wash some of the dirt out of your system! Pig! Dirty pig! Dirty as your whole whore-mongering sex!

Norma Bates: [Norman goes outside in the rain, throws away the magazine, turns, sees his mother with a raincoat for him] Some day I'm going to wish I'd been firmer with you.

Norman: I was the man of the house. She used to call me that. I was practically running the motel single-handedly by the time I was 15. She depended on me. Especially when she was scared. She was scared to death of thunder and lightning.

Dr. Leo Richmond: Tell me something, Ed. When your mother castrated you like that...

Norman: Castrated?

Dr. Leo Richmond: Symbolically. You must have felt like killing her right then and there.

Norman: I never felt like killing her or anybody else for that matter.

Dr. Leo Richmond: But you did kill her and other women, too. And now you tell us you're gonna kill another one.

Norman: I killed some other women, too. The first one was a girl who just wanted to have sex with me.

Fran Ambrose: Wanting to have sex with you? That was grounds for murder?

Norman: [soft smile] In my mother's eyes it was.

Mother: Get that whore out of my house!

Young Norman Bates: She's not a whore, mother.

Mother: I said get rid of her. Or do I have to do it myself?

Young Norman Bates: No, Mother. I'll get rid of her.

Mother: Kill her.

Young Norman Bates: Kill her? I can't! No! No, I can't!

Mother: Alright. Alright. Then I'll do it for you.
