David McLean: So the problem's sick kids?
Lydia Hadley: Sick nursery, David.
Lydia Hadley: It won't respond, will it?
George Hadley: No.
Lydia Hadley: Or it can't. Because Peter and Wendy have been thinking about Africa and lions and KILLING for so long.
George Hadley: Come on, Lydia, you don't really believe that.
Lydia Hadley: Or Peter SET it that way.
George Hadley: Set it?
Lydia Hadley: Well he's awfully clever for a 12 year old, you remember when David McLean tested his IQ.
David McLean: My God. How your kids must hate you.
George Hadley: Hate us? But we've done nothing.
David McLean: Right. When was the last time you did something yourself, for your kids?
George Hadley: But we do things all the time.
David McLean: No! I don't mean switching on the video or the digital disc player. Ever play tennis? Badminton? Kick the can? Hide and seek, OUT THERE? I mean there IS a world, outside this house.
George Hadley: I know, but what about the nursery?
David McLean: Turn it off. Lock it up! As matter of fact, turn off the whole house. Go jump in the lake, go climb a mountain, go!
Lydia Hadley: Just as I've been saying, it's rotten, isn't it?
David McLean: Just turn it off.
George Hadley: I wonder... will the room hate me for doing it in?
David McLean: [laughs] George.
George Hadley: How could I be such a damned fool?
David McLean: With so many servants, easy.
Lydia Hadley: Shut off the room, George, then I'll calm down.
George Hadley: Shut off the room? What're the kids gonna say?
Lydia Hadley: I say shut it off! Shut the whole house off! I've had it with all this electronic junk! Let's light candles, do things with our hands! George, let's switch the whole house off and take a vacation!
George Hadley: I can't believe that a room is doing this to you!
Lydia Hadley: Can't you feel it? My God, George, it's sick, Wendy and Peter have made it that way.
George Hadley: Lydia, walls, crystal walls: it's all 3-dimensional, super-actionary, super-sensitive, color film. Odor-foam, sonics...
Lydia Hadley: I'm afraid. George, it's too real.
