Movie Quote of the Day – Psycho, 1960 (dir. Alfred Hitchcock)

Marion Crane: I am sorry. I only felt. . .it seems she’s hurting you. [beat] I meant well.
Norman Bates: People always mean well! They cluck their thick tongues and shake their heads and suggest, oh so very delicately! [beat] Of course, I’ve suggested it myself. But I hate to even think about it. She needs me. It . . .it’s not as if she were a. . .a maniac . . .a raving thing. She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes. [beat] Haven’t you?
Marion Crane: Yes. Sometimes just one time can be enough. Thank you.
Norman Bates: ‘Thank you, Norman.’
Marion Crane: . . .Norman.

  1. Creepy very creepy LOL

  2. Anthony Perkins is SO creepy in this movie, this scene especially.

    • he’s such a brilliant and underrated actor. he’s so intense and complex in everything I’ve seen with him from the 50s and 60s (well, and 70s too since he was in Murder on the Orient Express)

  3. “Hobbies are supposed to pass the time, not fill it”

  4. Tony Perkins should have a theatre named after him in NYC. He did great theatre work too.
