The Shining (1980)
Philip Stone: Grady
Delbert Grady : Did you know, Mr. Torrance, that your son is attempting to bring an outside party into this situation? Did you know that?
Jack Torrance : No.
Delbert Grady : He is, Mr. Torrance.
Jack Torrance : Who?
Delbert Grady : A nigger.
Jack Torrance : A nigger?
Delbert Grady : A nigger cook.
Jack Torrance : How?
Delbert Grady : Your son has a very great talent. I don't think you are aware how great it is. That he is attempting to use that very talent against your will.
Jack Torrance : He is a very willful boy.
Delbert Grady : Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir.
Jack Torrance : It's his mother. She, uh, interferes.
Delbert Grady : Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don't mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn't care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I "corrected" them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I "corrected" her.
Jack Torrance : Mr. Grady, you were the caretaker here.
[there is another short pause as Grady's facial expression slowly dissolves from casual to darkly malevolent]
Delbert Grady : I'm sorry to differ with you sir, but you are the caretaker. You've always been the caretaker. I should know sir. I've always been here.
Jack Torrance : Mr. Grady, you were the caretaker here. I recognize ya. I saw your picture in the newspapers. You, uh, chopped your wife and daughters up into little bits. And then you blew your brains out.
Delbert Grady : [after a short pause] That's strange, sir. I don't have any recollection of that at all.
Delbert Grady : Your son has quite an extradordinary talent. I don't think you realise how extraordinary it is.
Delbert Grady : I and others have come to a belief, that your heart is not in this. That you don't have the belly for it.
