Psycho (1960) Poster


Vera Miles: Lila Crane



  • Dr. Fred Richmond : No. I got the whole story - but not from Norman. I got it - from his mother. Norman Bates no longer exists. He only half-existed to begin with. And now, the other half has taken over. Probably for all time.

    Lila Crane : Did he kill my sister?

    Dr. Fred Richmond : Yes, - and no.

  • Sam Loomis : You mean the old woman I saw tonight wasn't Mrs. Bates?

    Sheriff Al Chambers : Now wait a minute, Sam, are you *sure* you saw an old woman?

    Sam Loomis : Yes! In the house behind the motel! I called and I pounded, but she just ignored me!

    Sheriff Al Chambers : You mean to tell me you saw Norman Bates' mother?

    Lila Crane : It had to be - because Arbogast said so too. And the young man wouldn't let him see her because she was too ill.

    Sheriff Al Chambers : Well, if the woman up there is Mrs. Bates... who's that woman buried out in Greenlawn Cemetery?

  • Sheriff Al Chambers : Your detective told you he couldn't come right back because he was goin' to question Norman Bates' mother. Right?

    Lila Crane : Yes.

    Sheriff Al Chambers : Norman Bates' mother has been dead and buried in Greenlawn Cenetery for the past ten years!

    Eliza Chambers : I helped Norman pick out the dress she was buried in. Periwinkle blue.

    Sheriff Al Chambers : 'Tain't only local history, Sam. It's the only case of murder and suicide on Fairvale ledgers.

  • Lila Crane : Look, that old woman, whoever she is, she told Arbogast something. I want her to tell us the same thing.

    Sam Loomis : Hold it, you can't go up there.

    Lila Crane : Why not?

    Sam Loomis : Bates.

    Lila Crane : Then, let's find him. One of us can keep him occupied while the other gets to the old woman.

    Sam Loomis : You'll never be able to hold him still even if he doesn't want to be held. And, I don't like you going into that house alone.

    Lila Crane : I can handle a sick old woman!
