    1. Ullman: I don't suppose they told you anything in Denver about the tragedy we had in the Winter of nineteen seventy.
    2. Jack Torrance: I don't believe they did.
    3. Ullman: My predecessor in this job left a man named Charles Grady as the Winter caretaker. And he came up here with his wife and two little girls, I think were eight and ten. And he had a good employment record, good references, and from what I've been told he seemed like a completely normal individual. But at some point during the winter, he must have suffered some kind of a complete mental breakdown. He ran a muck and killed his family with an axe. Stacked them neatly in one of the rooms in the West wing and then he, he put both barrels of a shot gun in his mouth.

Well, maybe things that happen leave other kinds of traces behind. Not things that anyone can notice, but things that people who "shine" can see; just like they can see things that haven't happened yet. Well, sometimes they can see things that happened a long time ago. I think a lot of things happened right here in this particular hotel over the years. And not all of them was good.

    1. Jack Torrance: Wendy, let me explain something to you. Whenever you come in here and interrupt me, you're breaking my concentration. You're distracting me. And it will then take me time to get back to where I was. You understand?
    2. Wendy Torrance: Yeah.
    3. Jack Torrance: Now, we're going to make a new rule. When you come in here and you hear me typing (types) or whether you DON'T hear me typing, or whatever the F**K you hear me doing, when I'm in here, it means that I am working, THAT means don't come in. Now, do you think you can handle that?
    4. Wendy Torrance: Yeah.
    5. Jack Torrance: Good. Now why don't you start right now and get the f**k out of here?

    1. Ullman: I don't suppose they told you anything in Denver about the tragedy we had in the winter of nineteen seventy.
    2. Jack Torrance: I don't believe they did.
    3. Ullman: My predecessor in this job left a man named Charles Grady as the winter caretaker. And he came up here with his wife and two little girls, I think were eight and ten. And he had a good employment record, good references, and from what I've been told he seemed like a completely normal individual. But at some point during the winter, he must have suffered some kind of a complete mental breakdown. He ran amuck and killed his family with an axe; stacked them neatly in one of the rooms in the West wing and then he, he put both barrels of a shot gun in his mouth.
    4. Jack Torrance: Well, that is quite a story.
    5. Ullman: Yeah it is. It's still hard for me to believe it happened here. It did, and I think you can appreciate why I wanted to tell you about it.
    6. Jack Torrance: I certainly can and I also understand why your people in Denver left it for you to tell me.
    7. Ullman: Well obviously some people can be put off by staying alone in a place where something like that actually happened.
    8. Jack Torrance: Well you can rest assured Mr. Ullman, that's not going to happen with me. And as far as my wife is concerned, I'm sure she'll be absolutely fascinated when I tell her. She's a confirmed ghost story, and horror film addict.

    2. Wendy Torrance: (cries) Jack
    3. Jack Torrance: Wendy! I have let you fuck up my life so far, but I will not let you fuck this up!
