Who is it?

Hi. My name is Quinn.

I was looking for Elise.

It's okay, Warren. Go upstairs.

I'm Elise.

Hi. Gosh, I'm sorry

to bother you like this.

I got your name

from Claire Ortisky's mom.

Mrs. Ortisky. Emily.

Sorry, Emily Ortisky.

Yeah, she told me

you worked as a psychic

and that you were really amazing

when she saw you.

I remember Emily.

Yeah. She's awesome.

She's like, she's really nice.

And she told me how great you were.

She gave me a phone number for you,

but it wasn't working.

So, you know, I... I'm really sorry

to have just shown up like this.

It's okay.

But if you're looking for a reading,

unfortunately, I don't do those anymore.

- I have money. I brought like $50.

- No, no, no, no. It's not that, honey.

- I just can't, and I'm pretty busy, so...

- Okay.

Where did you come from?

Whealan Park.

That's a long way.

Yeah, it's no big deal though.

I mean, I'm the one who just showed up.

I'm really sorry

that I've wasted your time.

Why don't you come in for a minute?

A good chat is never time wasted, right?

- I love the style of your house. It's so cool.

- Thank you. Have a seat.


You're a very smart girl, Quinn.

- Depends who you ask.

- No, you are. You read a lot.

You have a lot of books

in that bag of yours.

Yeah. Yeah. I love reading.

What made you come

all the way here today?

I wanna talk to someone

who's not around anymore.


My mom.

She died a year and a half ago.

She had cancer.

I mean, well, first she had breast cancer

and then she had a mastectomy,

but it decided to hang around

and travel to her lungs.

So, I guess you could say

it wanted to be with her

just as much as everyone else did.

Well, tell me about her.

I mean, she was great.

Like, I mean, she could always hang out

with all of my friends.

God, she loved old music,

like vinyl records and stuff,

and she always wanted to talk to me.


I'm sorry.

No, no. That's okay.

It's like...

It's like sometimes

I can feel her around me.

Like at night I'll be in my room,

or I'll be sleeping

and something will wake me up.

Or, you know,

I'll find things in weird places.

Like I'll find my diary

somewhere strange.

I don't know.

- I mean, I guess it's kind of crazy.

- Not to me, it isn't.

You've tried to contact your mother

on your own, haven't you?

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, I've...

I mean, I've asked her to talk to me

but, you know, she never does.

That's why I came here.

You know? I really need

to ask her some questions.

I know what that's like.

All right. You have to give me a moment,

and I can't promise anything.

Here, please take a little bit of money.

No. I got out of this business.

If I accept that from you, I'm back in it.

Normally, we do this downstairs

in my reading room.

What's your mom's name?

Lily. Lily Brenner.

Lily Brenner.

I'm calling out and trying

to make contact with Lily Brenner.

Lily, if you can hear me,

please talk to me.


Are you out there?

- I can hear someone.

- Is it my mom?

No, it isn't your mother.

Go away.

Go away. Go away.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry. There's a reason

I had to stop doing this.

There's other people that do this.

You have to find one of them.

You're gonna be okay, Quinn.

But take my advice

and do not try to contact your mother

on your own anymore.

You have to be very careful.

If you call out to one of the dead,

all of them can hear you.

Are you there?


Are you there?

Today? No. Today?

No, I don't think so. No.

Hey, you know what?

What I mean is that I can't be

in two places at the same time.
