Jack Torrance: Okay, let's talk. What do you wanna talk about?
Wendy Torrance: I can't really remember.
Jack Torrance: You can't remember... Maybe it was about... Danny? Maybe it was about him. I think we should discuss Danny. I think we should discuss what should be done with him. What should be done with him?
Wendy Torrance: I don't know.
Jack Torrance: I don't think that's true. I think you have some very definite ideas about what should be done with Danny and I'd like to know what they are.
Wendy Torrance: Well, I think... maybe... he should be taken to a doctor.
Jack Torrance: You think "maybe" he should be taken to a doctor?

Jack Torrance: You think his health might be at stake.
Wendy Torrance: Y-Yes!
Jack Torrance: You are concerned about him.
Wendy Torrance: Yes!
Jack Torrance: And are you concerned about ME?
Wendy Torrance: Of course I am!
Jack Torrance: Of course you are! Have you ever thought about my responsibilities?
Wendy Torrance: Oh Jack, what are you talking about?
Jack Torrance: Have you ever had a SINGLE MOMENT'S THOUGHT about my responsibilities? Have you ever thought, for a single solitary moment about my responsibilities to my employers? Has it ever occurred to you that I have agreed to look after the OVERLOOK Hotel until May the FIRST. Does it MATTER TO YOU AT ALL that the OWNERS have placed their COMPLETE CONFIDENCE and TRUST in me, and that I have signed a letter of agreement, a CONTRACT, in which I have accepted that RESPONSIBILITY? Do you have the SLIGHTEST IDEA, what a MORAL AND ETHICAL PRINCIPLE IS, DO YOU? Has it ever occurred to you what would happen to my future, if I were to fail to live up to my responsibilities? Has it ever occurred to you? HAS IT?
Wendy Torrance: (swings the bat) Stay away from me!

Jack Torrance: Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
