[repeated line] Joey Fane: She tried to kill me.
: Who's that? Joey Fane: Nanny. Bobbie Medman: Nanny? What are you, some sort of baby? Joey Fane: She takes care of my mom, she used to take care of me and my sister Susie, until Susie was killed. Bobbie Medman: Killed? Joey Fane: They blamed me and they sent me away to that place. Bobbie Medman: Prison? Joey Fane: Sort of. Bobbie Medman: And did you kill her? Joey Fane: Of course not. Joey Fane: I don't want to be moved out of this room. Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: I'll have to talk to your father about that. Joey Fane: Don't tell him, please... Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: I must. Joey Fane: If you tell him, I'll do something! Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: [startled] What will you do? Bobbie Medman: You said she tried to kill you. Joey Fane: That's right, just like she killed Susie. Bobbie Medman: She killed your sister? Joey Fane: Sort of... yes she did. Aunt Pen: Nanny, what are you doing? The nanny: I'm taking Master Joey an extra pillow... what are you doing up so late? Aunt Pen: I couldn't sleep, I'm going to make a cup of tea. The nanny: It's bad for you this late at night... you go back to bed and I'll bring you a glass of milk. Aunt Pen: I don't want a glass of milk, I want a cup of tea. The nanny: Allright. Aunt Pen: Nanny, don't take Joey that pillow... he'll never go back to sleep. [leaves the room and reenters a few seconds later] Aunt Pen: You don't approve of pillows, I remember you saying when we were small 'children shouldn't have pillows'. What was that word you used? Overlay, they might overlay themselves. Suffocate. The nanny: Master Joey is not a baby. Aunt Pen: What happened in the bathroom? The nanny: I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. Aunt Pen: What happened? The nanny: Miss Pen. Aunt Pen: WHAT HAPPENED? The nanny: You're not well, let Nanny... Aunt Pen: Don't you come near me. The nanny: Miss Pen! Aunt Pen: You went into the bathroom, even after Joey made you swear you wouldn't. The nanny: Nor did I. Aunt Pen: You lie, it's all been lies, hasn't it? You poisoned Virgie, it wasn't Joey at all. Joey Fane: What's that?
Bobbie Medman: It's an X-ray machine, don't touch it, it's dangerous. Joey Fane: What's so dangerous about it? Bobbie Medman: I don't know, but Daddy says if you get overexposed you can die. Joey Fane: I'd like to overexpose her. Bobbie Medman: That would be great, bring her up here, put her on the couch... Joey Fane: Tie her on the couch! Bobbie Medman: And overexpose her would serve her right. Joey Fane: I can make a hangman's knot. Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: That's enough, Joey. Joey Fane: Can I sleep with you tonight? Aunt Pen: You most certainly can not. Joey Fane: What happens if you die in the night? You told Mommy you could drop down dead at any time. Aunt Pen: Only if I excite or exert myself, and I don't plan to do either. Joey Fane: Is Aunt Pen ill? Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: Yes, she had traumatic fever as a baby. Left her with a weak heart. Joey Fane: You mean if she got scared or something, she could just fall down dead? Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: Yes. Joey Fane: Has *she* got a weak heart? Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: Who? If you mean Nanny, say so, is that who you mean? Joey Fane: Yes. Virginia 'Virgie' Fane: No, she's as healthy as a horse.
