Now, I'm trying to tell you...

that we can't afford

to keep you here any more.

You already owe two months

worth of back rent.

It's mine,

and you're not taking it away.

Read the will, Nell.

It states, in plain language:

"The executor shall have

the right to dispose of...

any and all personal property

as he shall see fit."

- He's not even real family.

- Yeah, well, maybe not.

But clearly, Mother thought Lou

would be much better equipped...

to deal with these

unpleasant details than you.

"Unpleasant details" ?

What have I been dealing with

for the past 11 years ?

I've cooked, cleaned, mopped up

her urine ! You call that

an "unpleasant detail" ?

- Hey, your sister

didn't write the will.

- We all know what you've done.

- We're trying to help.

- Do not help me !

Oh, Ritchie.

Just go sit on the couch, okay ?


Anyway, once probate closes,

we can put this apartment

on the market,

and we all might be able

to make a few bucks.

Also, we know how much you love

Mom's car, so we're giving it to you.

You're taking away my home

and giving me a 20-year-old car ?

Absolutely. We'll deduct the value

from the proceeds of the apartment.

Who are you ?

Do you understand

that I have nowhere to go ?

We've been talking,

and Lou and I are very busy.

We could use someone to help us

with the cleaning and the cooking,

looking after Ritchie ?

Eleanor, help me. I gotta pee.

Ritchie, not now!

Get outta my home.

Well, suit yourself.

We'll let the courts handle it.

Get out of my home.

Honey, let go. That's right.

Oops. Sorry. Okay.

Here you go, honey.

Follow Daddy.

Come live with us, Nell.

You have no idea

how hard it is out there.

No,Jane. You have no idea

how hard it was in here.


Yes, this is Eleanor.

Where ?

I see it.

"Research subjects.

Nine hundred a week."

Here's how they're organized. The groups

have very different personalities.

Scored all over the Kiersey Temperament

Sorter, just like you asked for,

and they all score very high

on the insomnia charts.

Oh, what a beautiful profile.

A classic dependent

personality disorder.

However, we were looking

for "suggestible."

Her mother died

two months ago.

She really wants to do this.

And what are your feelings,

Mary ?

Tell me what

your intuitions say.

I put my favourites

on top.


What else have we got here ?

"Low self-esteem,

high narcissism,

chronic feeling of emptiness,

identity disturbance. "

Good, good. Very good.

Is this where we're going ?

That's Hill House.

That's perfect, isn't it ?

- The Hill House Project--

- Is absolutely essential

to my research, Malcom.

No, just listen.

I grant you,

fear and performance

is a big, sexy idea.

- But as chairman

of this department, I cannot--

- I know you clinical guys...

don't like to ask these questions,

but think about it.

What is fear, anyway ? It's a series of

automatic responses to a given stimulus,

characterized by increased

heart rate, respiratory activity

and adrenaline function.

The only problem with fear

is that it has largely become

inappropriate and nonadaptive.

Do sweaty palms

help to talk to your boss ?

Does a racing pulse help

some kid's score on an SAT ?

And yet we carry with us

these primordial fear responses...

that do the opposite of what

they were intended to do.

- So why is that ?

- David, David, no one is saying...

that these aren't

provocative questions.

But you can't conduct this research

ethically or responsibly.

And on top of that,

you're bringing your insomniacs...

to this house
