I'LL PACK THE THINGS HE WOULD HAVE TAKEN -- A SUIT, SOME SHIRTS. I'M FINALLY RID OF HIM. I KNOW I CAN HANDLE HIS MOTHER WITHOUT HIM AROUND. SHE'S HALF-CRAZY ANYWAY. I CAN GET RID OF HER, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. I'D BETTER WATCH OU FOR HIS BROTHERS, THOUGH, ESPECIALLY THE OLDER ONE, RICHARD. THE TYPEWRITER -- HE WOULDN'T FORGET THAT. HE'D HAVE TO WRITE LETTERS ON THE PLANE. I WONDER IF HE'LL RO UNDERWATER. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING. [ SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING ] I'LL MAKE HER CHANGE THAT RIDICULOUS WILL. "YOUR LOVING SON, JOHN."

[ METAL TINGS ] OH, I'M SORRY. WE'RE IN YOUR WAY. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IRELAND, CASTLE HALORAN? IRELAND'S FINE. CASTLE HALORAN IS A BIT PERPLEXING, A VERY STRANGE PLACE, REALLY -- OLD AND MUSTY, THE KIND OF PLACE YOU'D EXPECT A GHOS TO LIKE TO WANDER AROUND IN, KIND OF A HAUNTED CASTLE. CASTLE HALORAN IS HAUNTED. BY YOUR MOTHER? BY KATHLEEN. I KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT HER. IN FACT, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU HAD A SISTER UNTIL WE ARRIVED HERE. THERE'S NOT THAT MUCH TO KNOW ABOUT HER, REALLY. MY MOTHER WAS ABOUT 40 WHEN SHE GAVE BIRTH TO KATHLEEN. IT WAS LIKE A GIFT, SHE USED TO SAY -- "AN APPLE FOR THE STARVING AND KATHLEEN FOR ME." SHE EVEN HAD A POEM -- "THREE SONS, EACH WHO WOULD MARRY AND GO AWAY, BUT LITTLE KATHLEEN WOULD ALWAYS STAY." IT'S ENGRAVEN ON HER LITTLE TOMBSTONE NOW. HOW DID SHE DIE? SHE DROWNED IN THE POND.

AER LINGUS IRISH INTERNATIONAL AIRLINES WISH YOU CAD MLE FILTE. YOUR BAGGAGE WILL BE DELIVERED SHORTLY ON THE CONVEYOR BELT. MY OLDEST BROTHER, JOHN, HAD TO LEAVE EARLY THIS MORNING, BUT HIS WIFE, LOUISE, IS STILL HERE. SHE'S FROM AMERICA, SO YOU WON'T GET HOMESICK. UH, THAT'S MY BAG. OH. IS IT COLD? FREEZING. BUT ALL OLD CASTLES ARE LIKE THAT. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, CASTLE HALORAN GIVES ME NIGHTMARES. [ CHUCKLES ] THERE IT IS. UNBELIEVABLE. [ BIRDS CHIRPING ] WE'LL LEAVE THE LUGGAGE FOR A MINUTE. COME ON. I'LL TAKE YOU TO HIM. THIS IS WHERE HE WORKS. [ LOUD HISSING ] [ CLATTER ] WHAT IS IT?! I'M SORRY, RICHARD. KANE. OH, I MISSED YOU. I MISSED YOU, TOO. WELL, I'M SORRY I DIDN' PICK YOU UP MYSELF, HONEY, BUT I WANTED TO FINISH THIS STATUE. YOU LOOK WONDERFUL. Lady Haloran: WELL, I FIND A STATUE REMINDS ME OF DEATH. HOW VERY UNUSUAL, LADY HALORAN, FOR A WOMAN TO HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO SUCH A FAMOUS SCULPTOR AND YET FEEL THAT WAY. DID, UH, JOHN MENTION WHEN HE WAS GOING TO RETURN? HE WASN'T SURE. WE THOUGHT I'D STAY ON FOR A WHILE TO GET TO KNOW THE FAMILY, AND THEN IF HE COULDN' MAKE IT BACK, I'D JUST RETURN TO NEW YORK. HOW LONG IS A LITTLE WHILE? AS LONG AS YOU LIKE, MOTHER. WELL, YOU'RE VERY WELCOME HERE, LOUISE, AS LONG AS YOU UNDERSTAND THE PRIVACY OF OUR PERSONAL DUTIES. I SPEAK OF THE CEREMONY TOMORROW. I'M SURE JOHN EXPLAINED IT TO YOU. I'M AFRAID JOHN WAS USUALLY TOO BUSY TO TALK MUCH ABOUT THE FAMILY. THAT'S WHY I'M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE, FINALLY. YOU'LL HAVE A PLEASANT STAY. AND I'M SURE YOU CAN FIND SOMETHING TO OCCUPY YOUR TIME DURING THE CEREMONY. IT WON'T TAKE VERY LONG. [ SIGHS ] PERHAPS I AM SUPERSTITIOUS, BUT I THINK IT'S IMPORTAN THAT ONLY THE IMMEDIATE MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY SHOULD GIVE THEIR THOUGHTS TO... KATHLEEN. EXCUSE ME. MOTHER, I DON'T CARE WHA TRAGEDY HANGS OVER THIS FAMILY. I WANT TO GET MARRIED. I'M ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED. AND I'M GOING TO GET MARRIED. MOREOVER, I'M GOING TO MARRY KANE. OH, MOTHER, KATHLEEN'S DEAD. SHE'S BEEN DEAD FOR SEVEN YEARS. YOU NEVER TALKED SO MUCH WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD. AH. WELL, I CRIED A LOT, DIDN'T I? AFRAID I MIGHT BE DOING THAT AGAIN IF YOU FRIGHTEN HER AWAY FROM ME. YOU WANT ME TO INCLUDE HER, TO TALK TO HER? YES. YES, I DO. VERY WELL. I WILL. I'LL TELL HER I DON'T CARE FOR HER. MOTHER! YOU HURT HER, AND I PROMISE YOU I'LL NEVER FORGET IT. THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T RIDE VERY MUCH. [ CHUCKLES ] I DON'T. I'M JUST SHOWING OFF 'CAUSE I FINALLY GOT YOU TO MYSELF. GOOD MORNING. OH, GOOD MORNING, LOUISE. IT'S NICE TO SEE HER ENJOYING HERSELF FOR A CHANGE. THE MOOD AROUND THIS PLACE ISN'T GOOD FOR HER. AH, SHE MAY BE RIGHT. ESPECIALLY AN AMERICAN GIRL. YOU CAN TELL SHE'S BEEN RAISED ON PROMISES. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT THAT? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT THAT? I DON'T UNDERSTAND. [ CHUCKLES ] I SAW YOU SQUIRMING WHEN MOTHER READ THE WILL. YOU GAVE JOHN ENOUGH DIRTY LOOKS TO GIVE HIM A HEART ATTACK. DON'T JOKE ABOUT THAT. YOU KNOW HE HAS A BAD HEART. [ CHUCKLES ] BUT I KNOW YOU DIDN'T MEAN ANYTHING BY IT. YOU KNOW, I THINK YOU OUGH TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH YOUR WIFE-TO-BE. YOU'RE AN INTELLIGENT WOMAN, LOUISE. YOU NOTICE THINGS, SIZE PEOPLE UP. YOU KNOW WHEN THEY'RE HAPPY AND KNOW WHEN SOMETHING'S BOTHERING THEM. I WANT YOU TO DO ME A LITTLE FAVOR. OF COURSE. KEEP THAT MICROSCOPE YOU'VE GOT BUILT INTO YOUR EYE OFF OF ME. I'LL SEE YOU. [ BIRDS CHIRPING ] THIS WILL TAKE YOU IN, ALL RIGHT. OH, THERE'S PLENTY OF VIEW FROM UP THERE. MUST BE VERY INTERESTING TO KNOW ABOUT ALL THE SECRET PASSAGEWAYS. OH, I KNOW THEM ALL. I'VE BEEN HERE 20 YEARS. 20 YEARS? HOW WONDERFUL. AH, WELL, YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. YOU GET USED TO A FAMILY AND YOU GET TO LIKE YOUR ROOM AND YOU GET TO KNOW THE RUN OF THE HOUSE. AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, THERE YOU ARE -- 20 YEARS. YOU MUST HAVE BEEN HERE, THEN, WHEN, UH, THE LITTLE GIRL... AH, YES. THAT WAS A SAD THING, THAT WAS. LORD HALORAN WAS A MUCH-LOVED MAN, AND HE INVITED ONE OF THE COUNTRY FELLOWS UP HERE FOR HIS WEDDING. OH, A BIG WEDDING THAT WAS -- A BIG BANQUET, AND EVERYONE INVITED. SHE WAS ALL DRESSED UP AS THE BRIDESMAID, RUNNING ABOUT TO HER HEART'S CONTENT ALL OVER THE PLACE. THERE'S NEVER BEEN A WEDDING HERE SINCE. WHAT ABOUT KANE AND RICHARD? WELL, IT'S NOT MY BUSINESS, BUT I WOULDN'T BE BETTING YOU'D SEE ANOTHER WEDDING HERE. WELL, I MUST GO BACK TO WORK. [ FROGS CROAKING ] [ OFF-KILTER WHIMSICAL MUSIC PLAYING ] Kane: BILLY? BILLY? BILLY, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? OH, HELLO, KANE. OH, SURE, SURE, I'M -- I'M FINE. I WAS JUST REMEMBERING ABOUT KATHLEEN. KATHLEEN? OH, YES, THE LITTLE GIRL. RICHARD TOLD ME ALL ABOUT HER. WE USED TO PLAY TOGETHER RIGHT HERE. SOMETIMES I THINK I CAN STILL HEAR HER LAUGHING, JUST LIKE THEN. IS -- IS THIS THE POND WHERE...? YES. SHE WAS MISSING ALL NIGHT. MOTHER WAS FRANTIC, ALMOST UNCONTROLLABLE. THE NEXT MORNING, WE FOUND KATHLEEN FLOATING IN THE WATER RIGHT OVER THERE. I'M SORRY, BILLY. NO, KANE, I'M SORRY. I'M NOT ALWAYS SO MORBID. IT'S JUST THAT THE FUNERAL CEREMONY IS TODAY. IT'S A VERY BEAUTIFUL POND. YOU KNOW, THIS IS ALL JUS EXACTLY LIKE I IMAGINED IRELAND WOULD BE. IT RAINED THE DAY OF THE FUNERAL. WE STOOD AROUND HER GRAVE UNDER BLACK UMBRELLAS, AND THEN WE THREW FLOWERS UNDER HER LITTLE HEADSTONE. MOTHER LOOKED AT THE FLOWERS, AND THEN SHE COLLAPSED. EVERY YEAR IT'S BEEN THE SAME -- THE UMBRELLAS, FLOWERS... AND MOTHER'S COLLAPSE. BUT THAT WAS YEARS AGO. WHY DO YOU KEEP HAVING THE SAME CEREMONY OVER AND OVER AGAIN? THERE'S SOME THINGS YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, NOT YET. MOTHER'S PROBABLY WAITING. IS RICHARD READY FOR THE CEREMONY? I DON'T KNOW. I THINK HE'S IN HIS STUDIO. HE SAID HE HAD A SUDDEN INSPIRATION, SOMETHING ABOUT WANTING TO FINISH A STATUE BEFORE -- ALL RIGHT, SIMON, I'VE SEEN YOU. COME OUT OF THERE NOW. [ Irish accent ] I GIVE UP. YOU CAUGHT ME FAIR AND SQUARE, MASTER BILLY. I GIVE MESELF UP. SO, IT'S POACHING AGAIN, ARE YOU, SIMON? WELL, LET ME TELL YOU -- YOU JUST ABOUT SCARED THE WITS OUT OF POOR MISS KANE HERE. SHAME ON YOU, SIMON. SHAME ON YOU! 'TWAS ONLY OLD BUSHY TAIL I'M AFTER, MAY HIS SOUL ROT. I SWEAR BY THE SHADE OF FINN McCOOL, MASTER BILLY. I'M NOT POACHING YOUR LEGAL GAME. NO, 'TWAS ONLY THA NO-GOOD RABBIT-STEALING FOX WHICH BRINGS ME HERE. PLEASE, MASTER BILLY, FOR THE MEMORY OF YOUR LATE, GREAT FATHER -- GOD REST HIS SOUL -- DON'T TURN ME OVER TO THE BULLS. OF COURSE NOT, SIMON, BUT DON'T LET ME CATCH YOU RUNNING AROUND THROUGH THE BRUSH AGAIN LIKE THIS. NOW OFF WITH YOU. OH, GOD BLESS YOU, MY BOY. IT IS A TRUE SIGN OF THE LATE, GREAT LORD OF THIS ESTATE, YOU ARE. FORGIVE ME, MISS. THE LAST THING IN THE WORLD OLD SIMON WOULD WANT TO DO IS TO FRIGHTEN A FRESH YOUNG BEAUTY... LIKE YOURSELF. BYE, SIMON. OLD SIMON LIKES TO THINK OF HIMSELF AS THE LAST OF THE GREA IRISH POACHERS. ISN'T THAT DANGEROUS, RUNNING AROUND WITH A GUN LIKE THAT? I DON'T THINK IT'S BEEN FIRED FOR 30 YEARS. I'M NOT EVEN SURE IT'S LOADED. WELL, THEN HOW DOES HE CATCH ANYTHING, OR DOES HE? WELL, HE SETS OUT SNARES FOR RABBITS, AND WHEN HE FINDS THEM EMPTY, HE BLAMES I ON OLD BUSHY TAIL. OLD BUSHY TAIL'S A FOX, OR AT LEAS SIMON THINKS SO. NOBODY'S EVER SEEN OLD BUSHY TAIL, AND I DON'T THINK SIMON HAS, EITHER. [ MOURNFUL MUSIC PLAYING ] [ BELL TOLLING ] [ SCREAMS ] PLEASE, LET ME HELP. HAVE LILLIAN PREPARE HER ROOM. I'LL TAKE CARE OF HER. WHAT HAPPENED? ONE OF THE FLOWERS DIED WHEN IT TOUCHED HER GRAVE. [ BREATHES DEEPLY ] [ MOANS ] Shhhhh. REST. THERE'S SOMETHING IN THIS HOUSE, LIKE MUSIC IN THE HALLWAYS... LIKE A CHILD'S MUSIC, ASKING ME SOMETHING, BUT MORE LIKE BEGGING ME. BEGGING FOR WHAT? BEGGING FOR HER MOTHER TO LISTEN TO HER. YOU KNOW? I'VE HEARD HER. SHE ASKS FOR YOU. POOR TINY THING. SHE WANTS YOU TO LISTEN TO HER, TO WATCH FOR HER SIGNS. OH, I DO TRY. DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE WANTS? SHE'LL TELL ME. I PROMISE YOU. SHE'LL TELL ME. [ EXHALES HAPPILY ] NOW REST. SHE'LL GIVE US A SIGN. I PROMISE YOU. Shh.

WHEN IT'S RELAXED, IT LIES QUIET AND EASY. BUT WHEN IT'S TENSE AND FRIGHTENED, IT STRAINS TO LEAVE YOU. QUITE A SIMPLE PRINCIPLE, ISN'T IT? YOU'RE ENGAGED TO TREAT MY BODY, NOT MY MIND. NOW, DON'T YOU TRY TO SEPARATE THAT WHICH NATURE HAS JOINED. WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS THIS, THAT EVERY YEAR AT THIS TIME, YOU WORK YOURSELF TOWARD A POIN OF HYSTERIA. YOU REMEMBER, YOU WORRY, YOU IMAGINE, AND THEN YOU COLLAPSE. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PUNCTUAL CYCLE IS PHYSIOLOGICAL. ASIDE FROM ALL THIS, AM I WELL? ASIDE FROM ALL THIS? OH, YES.

I MUST KNOW WHERE LOUISE IS. I'VE NEVER NOTICED THIS INTERES IN YOUR DAUGHTER-IN-LAW BEFORE. WILL YOU PLEASE FIND HER, LILLIAN? YES, MA'AM. HER LADYSHIP'S SUMMER DRESS. ANYTHING WILL DO.

I WONDER WHERE SHE IS. I DON'T KNOW. ASK ME WHAT I DID TODAY. [ CHUCKLES ] RIGHT. WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY? NOTHING. ASK ME WHY. WHY? BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T THERE. I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO WORK. IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE MY WIFE, YOU'LL HAVE TO BE OF THE TRUSTING, SILENT VARIETY. HEY, RICHARD, YOU SEEN LOUISE? UH, NO, I HAVEN'T. WHY? I DON'T KNOW. MOTHER'S LOOKING FOR HER. OH, IS THAT CALEB? HE'S BACK. GOOD AFTERNOON, MOTHER. GOOD MORNING, CALEB. HOW ARE YOU, RICHARD? I'M FINE, CALEB. AND NO MORE HEADACHES, I TRUST? UNPLEASANT THINGS, HEADACHES, GNAWING AWAY AT A MAN'S MOST VALUABLE POSSESSION. AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR CHARMING FIANCE. LILLIAN. PATRICK HASN'T SEEN HER, MA'AM, AND ARTHUR SAYS THAT NONE OF THE CARS EXCEPT MASTER BILLY'S HAS BEEN USED. HAVE YOU COUNTED THE SILVER? PROBABLY THE MOST ASTUTE DIAGNOSE YOU'VE EVER MADE, CALEB. YOU'RE ALL BEING RIDICULOUS. [ WATER BUBBLING ] KATHLEEN? THE TIARA. SHE WANTS THE TIARA. DOLLS? NOW, THIS IS RIDICULOUS. PUT IT AWAY. PROBABLY BELONGS TO THE GARDENER'S CHILD. NOW, THIS IS VERY BAD FOR YOUR MOTHER. THEY'RE KATHLEEN'S DOLLS. I SAW THEM FLOAT UP FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE POND. ONE OF YOU HAS A BRILLIANTLY IMAGINATIVE AND SADISTICALLY EFFECTIVE MIND. I WISH I COULD KEEP UP WITH IT. DR. CALEB, TAKE THIS HOME AND STUDY IT! FISH THE REST OF THEM OUT. BURN THEM. [ WATER BUBBLES ] ARE YOU GONNA POUND I ALL OU ON THAT ONE LITTLE PIECE OF METAL? [ SIGHS ] I DON'T KNOW. YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES I GET THE FEELING YOU THINK I'M SOME SOR OF A CHRISTMAS-TREE DECORATION. HANG ME UP AND LOOK AT ME ON ALL THE HAPPY DAYS, AND TIE ME UP IN A BOX AND PUT ME IN A CLOSE WHEN IT GETS GLOOMY. YOU KNEW WHAT I WAS LIKE. OH, YES, I KNEW YOU WERE QUIET, BUT WHEN WE FIRST MET, I COULD SIT NEXT TO YOU IN THAT LITTLE APARTMENT, WATCHING YOU WORKING AND THINKING FOR HOURS. IT'S THIS PLACE. YOU KNOW IT IS. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY? NOTHING. KANE. BELIEVE ME -- I AM SORRY. I DON'T CARE WHETHER YOU'RE SORRY OR NOT. [ EXHALES SHARPLY ] OH, RICHARD, RICHARD, I KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS RUNNING AROUND IN THA BEAUTIFUL HEAD OF YOURS. I KNOW THAT ONE OF THEM IS YOU LOVE ME. OF COURSE I LOVE YOU. BUT YOU MUST UNDERSTAND. EVER SINCE KATHLEEN DIED, MY MOTHER'S BEEN RUNNING AROUND WITH SOME SORT OF CRAZY GUILT, LOOKING TO EVERY ONE OF US, TRYING TO PUT I ON ONE OF OUR HEADS. BILLY WAS ONLY 13, TWO MONTHS AFTER IT HAPPENED. HE USED TO WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGH AND COME SCREAMING INTO MY ROOM BECAUSE HE HAD NIGHTMARES ABOUT HER. MY OWN FATHER DIED WITH HIS WIFE REFUSING TO SEE HIM. NOW I FEEL IT'S BEEN PASSED ON TO ME. I'VE GOT TO WAIT, AND I'VE GOT TO WATCH TILL I CAN MAKE SOME SENSE OUT OF ALL THIS. THAT LEAVES IT UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHETHER YOU WANT TO SI AND WAIT WITH ME.

DID YOU EVER SEE WHERE MY ROOM IS? YOU HAVE TO GO DOWN A CORRIDOR WHERE NOBODY'S LIVED FOR THE PAST 50 YEARS, THEN UP A FLIGHT OF STAIRS WHERE MY GREA GRANDUNCLE OR SOMEBODY TRIPPED AND BROKE HIS NECK... AND THEN PAST THE SPO WHERE MY GRANDFATHER DIED OF A HEART ATTACK. I'D RATHER BE DEPRESSED HERE THAN IN THERE. POOR BILLY. NO WONDER YOU USED TO GE ALL THOSE NIGHTMARES. USED TO? I STILL GET THEM. WHAT ARE THEY LIKE? ARE THEY TERRIBLE? I DON'T KNOW. THEY'RE MORE STRANGE THAN TERRIBLE. I'M ALWAYS A LITTLE BOY, AND I'M IN MY ROOM. IT'S LATE. I HEAR SOMEBODY OUTSIDE MAKING A KIND OF A SCRAPING SOUND. I GET OUT OF BED, LOOK OUT OF THE WINDOW, AND THERE'S A MAN CLIMBING UP THE WALL, COMING CLOSER TOWARD MY WINDOW. I YELL FOR MY MOTHER, AND SHE COMES INTO THE ROOM JUST AS THE MAN IS COMING IN THROUGH THE WINDOW. I HOLD ON TO HER LEGS, CRYING. I'M SO SMALL I ONLY COME UP TO HER WAIST. THE MAN IS IN THE SHADOWS. YOU CAN ALMOST RECOGNIZE HIM, BUT NOT REALLY. HE SAYS THAT HE'S INSANE AND THAT SOMEONE ELSE IN THE ROOM IS INSANE ALSO AND THAT HE'S GOING TO NOD HIS HEAD, AND WHEN HE DOES, THAT OTHER INSANE PERSON WILL NOD THEIR HEAD. HE NODS... AND I LOOK UP AT MY MOTHER. AND SHE'S NODDING HER HEAD. AND THEN... SHE STARTS LAUGHING AT ME. AND SHE PICKS ME UP IN HER ARMS, AND RUNS OUTSIDE AND... THROWS ME INTO THE POND. [ EXHALES SHARPLY ] OH, BILLY, WE'VE ALL GOT TO GET OUT OF HERE. COME ON. GO TO BED. I'LL WALK YOU PAS ALL THOSE SPOOKY CORRIDORS. HURRY AND GET THERE BEFORE RICHARD THROWS US BOTH IN THE POND. WHAT'S WRONG? OH, NOTHING. YOU JUST MADE ME REALIZE -- THE MAN IN MY DREAM WHO CLIMBS UP MY WALL IS RICHARD. I'M SORRY. I JUST NEVER THOUGH OF IT BEFORE. JUST A DREAM.

[ DOOR OPENS ] A SHRINE -- BEAUTIFULLY DONE. I NEVER SAW THAT BEFORE. WHY, IT'S SKILLFULLY CARVED, I MUST SAY. I WORK IN IRON. REMEMBER? SIX YEARS AGO, YOU WORKED IN STONE. I NEVER DID THAT. EVERY ONE OF US WORKED IN STONE. MY FATHER LOVED TEACHING US. SOMEONE ELSE DID THAT. I DIDN'T. NO ONE ELSE PURSUED THIS INHERITED TALENT -- NOBODY. LEAVE HIM ALONE. HE TOLD YOU BEFORE HE'S NEVER SEEN IT, AND HE MEANT IT. COME ON, RICHARD. LET'S GO. NO. HE'S TRYING TO PLAY A GAME WITH ME. DON'T YOU SEE? YOUR MOTHER LIES IN BED IN A STATE OF SHOCK CAUSED BY SOMETHING OR SOMEBODY. I DON'T CALL THAT A GAME, RICHARD. HAS THE ALL-SEEING DOCTOR NOTICED THAT A CERTAIN MONEY-HUNGRY, CONNIVING LITTLE WOMAN HAS LEFT OUR MIDST, THAT MY MOTHER, IN A STRUGGLE, CLUNG ON DESPERATELY TO A VERY VALUABLE DIAMOND TIARA? BUT I THINK THAT SHRINE HAS BEEN IN THAT POND FOR FIVE OR SIX YEARS. I DON'T THINK THA FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO LOUISE HAD EVEN HEARD OF CASTLE HALORAN. DO YOU? WHAT DO YOU WAN OUT OF THIS, DOCTOR? OH, I DON'T KNOW -- JUST A SOLUTION TO THE NIGHTMARE THAT HAS DISTURBED THIS FAMILY FOR SIX YEARS. AFTER ALL, I AM THE FAMILY DOCTOR, YOU KNOW. I DIDN'T MEAN TO ANNOY YOUR BROTHER, 'CAUSE I THINK HE'S RIGHT. I THINK LOUISE DID TRY TO STEAL YOUR MOTHER'S TIARA, AND I THINK SHE'LL COME BACK. I THINK SHE'S HIDING SOMEWHERE IN TOWN. WILL YOU HELP ME LOOK FOR HER? SURE, IF YOU WANT ME TO. I DO, BECAUSE YOUR BROTHER'S UPSET, AND THE YOUNG GIRL, TOO. THAT LEAVES THE TWO OF US. WHAT DO YOU THINK? SURE, I GUESS YOU'RE RIGHT.

I'LL NEVER DOUBT YOU AGAIN. I PROMISE. WE CAN GET MARRIED NOW. YOUR MOTHER'S STILL SICK, AND SHE WON'T BE ABLE TO STOP US. NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO STOP US. [ DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS ] [ LAUGHTER ] WELL, THIS IS THE DEVIL'S OWN CLIMATE. GOOD FOR THE GROUSE AND THE COUNTRY DOCTORS. IF I HAD TO SURVIVE BY TREATING THE COMMON COLD, I MIGHT AS WELL RETIRE.

I DON'T KNOW. COME ON. LET'S GO. OH, THERE. YOU WOULDN'T BEGRUDGE AN AGING MAN HIS MOMENT'S REST, WOULD YOU? YOU KNOW, I THINK YOU KNOW THE ANSWER TO ALL THE PROBLEMS YOUR FAMILY'S BEEN HAVING BECAUSE, BILLY, YOU SAW YOUR LITTLE SISTER DROWN ALL THOSE YEARS AGO. NO, I DIDN'T. OH, YES, YOU DID.

NO, I HAVEN'T SEEN HIM. CONGRATULATIONS. THANK YOU. [ CONVERSATIONS AND MUSIC CONTINUE ] EXCUSE ME. YES? YOU KNOW, THE ONE THING IN THE WORLD THAT REALLY CHILLS MY BONES TO THE MARROW IS WHEN A PRETTY GIRL IN A WEDDING DRESS LOOKS AT ME AND FINDS ME REPULSIVE. OH, DON'T BE SILLY, DOCTOR. OH, I'M OFTEN SILLY -- ONE OF MY MAJOR VICES. ANOTHER ONE IS THE DESIRE ON MY PART TO HELP OTHERS, HOWEVER RANCID THAT MAY SOUND. THEN YOU CAN HELP ME BY TELLING ME WHERE RICHARD IS. I'M NOT SURE WHERE RICHARD IS, OR, INDEED, UH, WHAT HE IS. OH, AND YOU WONDER WHY YOUNG GIRLS IN WEDDING DRESSES GIVE YOU DIRTY LOOKS. NO, NO, NO. I'M QUITE SERIOUS. I'VE KNOWN THIS FAMILY FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I'VE BEEN AWARE OF THE ATMOSPHERE OF DEPRESSION AND THE SLIGHTLY DEMENTED QUALITY THAT HANGS OVER IT. BUT THESE ARE SUBTLE MATTERS, SO I NEVER SPOKE. I WILL TELL YOU, YOUNG LADY, THAT I KNOW THAT LOUISE DID NOT LEAVE, BUT WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM CASTLE HALORAN. PERHAPS EVEN HER HUSBAND, JOHN, DIDN'T ACTUALLY GO ON THAT BUSINESS TRIP. I DON'T KNOW WHA YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT, YOU THINK I'M SOME KIND OF VILLAIN. CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO TRY TO HELP OTHERS AND TO BE MISTRUSTED EVERY TIME? MY LIP TWISTS. THIS DOESN'T MEAN THA EVERY WORD I SAY IS SINISTER. I DON'T KNOW WHA YOU'RE TRYING TO SAY. WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY TO YOU -- THAT I'VE DISCOVERED THINGS IN THIS HOUSE THAT MAKE ME UNEASY, AND THAT YOU ARE PROBABLY IN A POSITION OF SOME DANGER. FROM RICHARD? PRIMARILY FROM RICHARD, BUT I'M NOT SURE. IT COULD BE ANYONE. WELL, MAYBE YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN, BUT I CERTAINLY HAVEN'T. I'M HIS WIFE NOW. AND THERE'S A SISTER AND A SISTER-IN-LAW AND HIS MOTHER... AND PERHAPS HIS ELDEST BROTHER. I SWEAR TO YOU, DR. CALEB, YOU ARE A VERY SICK MAN. KANE. WHAT'S THE MATTER, HONEY? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! I WAS JUST OUTSIDE HAVING A SMOKE. WELL, LET'S GET OUT OF HERE. I DON'T WANT ANYONE TO SEE ME CRYING. [ Singsong voice ] COME OUT, COME OUT, WHEREVER YOU ARE. THESE LITTLE NURSERY RHYMES ARE NOTORIOUSLY EXPRESSIVE. [ FROGS CROAKING ] COME ON. I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT YOU. WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT ME? NO ONE! EVERYONE! I DON'T CARE! LITTLE FISHY IN THE BROOK... ...PAPA'S HANGED YOU ON A HOOK. PAPA'S CAUGHT YOU ON THE HOOK? [ DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING ] [ EERIE MUSIC PLAYING ] [ DOOR CREAKS, CLOSES ] [ WOMAN SCREAMS IN DISTANCE ] WHAT IS IT? [ INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS, FROGS CROAKING ] DON'T TOUCH HER! [ SCREAMS ] [ KANE SCREAMS ] [ GUNSHOT ] [ GASPS ] FORGIVE ME, KATHLEEN. YOU CHILDREN PLAYED WITH STONE THE WAY OTHER CHILDREN PLAYED WITH BUILDING BRICKS. THEY ALL FORGOT WHAT A TALENTED LITTLE BOY BILLY WAS. WHAT ABOUT KATHLEEN? HE MADE A WAX DOLL, SOMETHING HE COULD PROTECT, TO RELIEVE HIS GUILT.
