Sheriff Chambers: This detective was there. Norman told him about the girl. The detective thanked him and he went away.
Lila: And he didn't come back? He didn't see the Mother?
Sheriff Chambers: Your detective told you he couldn't come right back because he was goin' to question Norman Bates' mother. Right?
Lila: Yes.
Sheriff Chambers: Norman Bates' mother has been dead and buried in Greenlawn Cemetery for the past ten years!
Mrs. Chambers: I helped Norman pick out the dress she was buried in - periwinkle blue.
Sheriff Chambers: It ain't only local history, Sam. It's the only case of murder and suicide on Fairvale ledgers. Mrs. Bates poisoned this guy she was involved with when she found out he was married. Then took a helping of the same stuff herself. Strychnine. Ugly way to die.
Mrs. Chambers: Norman found them dead together - [whispering] in bed.
Sam: You mean that old woman I saw sittin' in the window out there wasn't Bates' mother?
Sheriff Chambers: Now wait a minute, Sam. Are you sure you saw an old woman?
Sam: Yes! In the house behind the motel. I called and pounded but she just ignored me.
Sheriff Chambers: You want to tell me you saw Norman Bates' mother?
Lila: But it had to be, because Arbogast said so, too. And the young man wouldn't let him see her because she was too ill.
Sheriff Chambers: Well, if the woman up there is Mrs. Bates, who's that woman buried out in Greenlawn Cemetery?
