Let's begin.

Very good.

What was your wife's name?

- Mary.

- Mary, alright.

He seeks the spirit

of Mary Browning.

Mary, we invite you

into our circle.

Mary Browning,

we invite you into our circle.

- We seek you in love and light.

- Dad, don't give this woman our money.


Mary, if that's you,

give us a sign.

Blow out the candles.

Welcome, Mary.

You may ask three questions.

Why just three?

Mary, we ask that you let

the candle burn if the answer is "Yes".

Blow it out

if the answer is "No".

Ask your question, sir.


Are you in pain,


She's not

The pain she felt

before she passed,

she's saying it was an illness.

- Cancer?

- Yeah.

She's restored.


She's young again, beautiful.

Beautiful forever now.

Mary, I...

Can you forgive me?

For all the things.

She says yes.

She forgives you.

And she ask for

your forgiveness in return.

Okay, I don't know

how are you doing...

Do not break the circle.

Anyone can shake a table

with their knee.

She won't be here much longer.

Ask your last question.


I have to ask you about Jenny.

She's seeing this young man, Don,


- they want a lot of money for me.

- Don't.

I have to mortgage the house.

It's suppose to be a terrific investment

and he says he'll marry her

if it turns out right.


I don't know how she's doing this

but this is a scam, Dad.


I'm so sorry.

The spirit world is unpredictable.

She sounded angry,

so angry.

It's hard to explain.

Well, uh.

- Thank you for your time.

- Oh, no, no, no.

No, I can't

Just remember what

she came to say.

She's at peace and she loves you.

That's all to take away from today.

The rest is the business of the living.

Uh, yeah.

Yeah, thank you.

What was that?

You almost gave that poor man

a heart attack.

Paulina Zander, get in here.

She deserved it, Mom.

She was just trying to steal her dad's money.

That isn't what we do here.

It's our job to comfort them

not judge them.

It's your job

to stand at the curtains,

and not attack the clients.

- And you, young lady.

- I heard screaming, I got scared.

I didn't mean

to knock things down.

This is unacceptable.

That lady was unacceptable.

She's a real b*tch.


I'm not sorry.

It caused us $5.

Let me see that.

He is so much weight on the table,

it was hard for me to latch on.

What's a scam?

The lady said we were a scam.

Doris, listen to me.

Scam is a lie.

We don't lie

We help people.

We give them closure.

We give them peace.


We heal their hearts.

And that's not something that can happen

without some showmanship.

We tell them the true.

We just need to help them believe it.



Well, we're going to need to

spice that showmanship up a little

because it's getting kind of stale.

And if we aren't here to judge them

why did you blow out the last candle?

Well, none of us is perfect, Lina.

She really was a b*tch, wasn't she?

You are Miss Lizzy Borden,

I presume.

I must say you are

not exactly what I expected.

I'm not Miss. Lizzy.

I'm Emma.

Oh, the sister.


Well, let's see, it's been a year

since your mother and father were...

Oh, Mom.

10 more minutes.


I'm sorry, sweetie, it's a school night.

My sister was acquitted.

And we never talk about it.

Of course you don't.

But the public is interested, you know.

Now, I represent the

Sacramento Record.

- You're one of those reporters?

- That's right.

I'm saying good night now

because I'm tired

and I didn't have

a very good day at school.

Because Terry is still

picking on my skirt.

So, please send us the money
