QUOTES FROM Richard Johnson CHARACTERS

Dr. John Markway
That proves it: one of you is a witch!
Dr. John Markway
You're liable to have that shut door ripped right off it's hinges
Dr. John Markway
You're liable to have that shut door ripped right off it's hinges.
Dr. John Markway
That's very good, Eleanor. You catch on quickly.
Theodora
(gets jealous and stands up) - I'm hungry. Let's go.
Dr. John Markway
Ghosts make the papers along with celebrities every day of the week.
Dr. John Markway
You wait here, Grace. I'll go in and get your things, and then call the police.
Grace Markway
No, no, no! No one must go back into that house again. Whatever's there might--?
Grace Markway
No, no, no! No one must go back into that house again. Whatever's there might?
Dr. John Markway
I'll be all right. The house has what it wants...for a while.
Dr. John Markway
I'll be all right. The house has what it wants, for a while.
Eleanor Vance
(panicking) - But where?
Dr. John Markway
Home of course.
Theodora
Back to your little apartment, where all your things are.
Dr. John Markway
Now. Which door?
Theodora
That one.
Dr. John Markway
Wrong. I've studied the map, it's this one. - [goes to his right and walks straight into the broom cupboard]
Dr. John Markway
When people believed the earth was flat, the idea of a round world scared them silly. Then they found out how the round world works. It's the same with the world of the supernatural. Until we know how it works, we'll continue to carry around this unnecessary burden of fear.
Dr. John Markway
It was an evil house from the beginning - a house that was born bad.
Dr. John Markway
It was an evil house from the beginning. A house that was born bad.
Dr. John Markway
It has taken 60 million years to develop the carnivorous biped you see before you, Luke Sanderson.
Theodora
Let's see what kind of martinis it makes.
Luke Sanderson
They should be pretty good. I majored in them at college.
Dr. John Markway
An evil old house, the kind some people call haunted, is like an undiscovered country waiting to be explored. Hill House had stood for 90 years and might stand for 90 more. Silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there...walked alone.

Eleanor Vance
I'm still so terrified from last night.
Dr. John Markway
You shouldn't be. It's silly to be frightened...
Eleanor Vance
Silly? You haven't been through it! This horrible unknown thing!
Dr. John Markway
Unknown.' That's the key word. 'Unknown.' When we become involved in a supernatural event, we're scared out of our wits just because it's unknown. The night cry of a child; a face on the wall; knockings, banging's. What's there to be afraid of? You weren't threatened. It was harmless, like a joke that doesn't come out.
Eleanor Vance
But the child...
Dr. John Markway
There was no child, remember? Just a voice!
Eleanor Vance
A voice.
Dr. John Markway
Look, Eleanor, put it this way. When people believed the Earth was flat, the idea of a round world scared them silly. Then they found out how the round world works. It's the same with the world of the supernatural. Until we know how it works, we'll continue to carry around this unnecessary burden of fear.
Eleanor Vance
Supposing it is in my imagination; the knocking, the voices. Everything...Every cursed bit of the haunting! Suppose the haunting is all in my mind.
Dr. John Markway
Well, you can't say that, because there are three other people here. We all resist the idea that what ran through the garden that first night was a ghost. What banged on the door was a ghost. What held your hand was a ghost. But there is certainly something going on in Hill House. We're getting closer, very close to finding out what it is.
Dr. John Markway
Look, I know the supernatural is something that isn't supposed to happen, but it does happen.
Col. J.D.H. Stewart
The disaster, Sir, has little to do with the loss of ten thousand men; it's their arms. Egypt was unequal to the challenge of these tribesmen when they had scarcely a pistol to call their own. What will she do now?
