Jim Morar says: Wait a minute...the spirit killer her?

Jim Morar says: Wait a minute, the spirit killer her?

Brandon Sinclair says: Yes, and I think he cut your phone line too so I couldn't warn Linda about the Ouija. And he probably killed Lloyd. By that time I think he was after you!

Sarabeth says: You ever heard of the word "Malfeitor" before?

Sarabeth says: (asking about the spirit) Was David Portuguese?

Brandon Sinclair says: No, I don't think so.

Sarabeth says: And he was only ten years old?

Brandon Sinclair says: Yeah.

Jim Morar says: Don't mention it...to anybody!

Jim Morar says: Don't mention it, to anybody!

Jim Morar says: (talking to Brandon, as he's weirded out about the strange looking psychic) - This is your expert? Where did you find her, in the circus?

Jim Morar says: (talking to Brandon, as he's weirded out about the strange looking psychic) This is your expert? Where did you find her, in the circus?

Brandon Sinclair says: Okay, so she's a bit strange. But--

Brandon Sinclair says: Okay, so she's a bit strange. But...

Jim Morar says: A bit strange? Her head looks like a freaking rainbow!

Brandon Sinclair says: (at Jim's work) - Alright when someone uses a Ouija alone, like Linda, she's very susceptible to the spirit she contacts. And the wrong spirit will take advantage of this. At first, he'll be extremely helpful and friendly, so that's she's lured into using the board more and more. Pretty soon all she wants to do is use the board. Everything else, like going to classes, becomes unimportant. This is called "progressive entrapment" - When she reaches this stage the spirit changes. He starts to frighten and terrorize her. Gradually breaking down her resistance...and once that's done...he's able to possess her.

Jim Morar says: (thinks for a moment, and nods his head) So, what you're telling me is that I'm living with Linda Blair?

Brandon Sinclair says: (screams) DAMN IT JIM I'M SERIOUS!

Jim Morar says: (laughing) - I know...that's what makes it so funny.

Jim Morar says: (laughing) I know that's what makes it so funny.

Jim Morar says: (laughing) I know, that's what makes it so funny.

Brandon Sinclair says: (at Jim's work) - Has Linda been acting strange lately? She hasn't been to a single one of her classes all week.

Brandon Sinclair says: (at Jim's work) Has Linda been acting strange lately? She hasn't been to a single one of her classes all week.

Brandon Sinclair says: (begins to walk away) I should have known better.

Jim Morar says: Hey! Hey! Jesus man you use to have a sense of humor.

Brandon Sinclair says: Okay, can you be serious for one minute please?

Jim Morar says: I'll give it a shot.

Brandon Sinclair says: (talking on the phone with Linda about Jim) - Tell me, did he cry at the funeral? - Face it Linda...the man has ice in his veins. I've known him since I was seven and I never seen him cry once...not for anybody or anything.

Brandon Sinclair says: (talking on the phone with Linda about Jim) Tell me, did he cry at the funeral? Face it Linda, the man has ice in his veins. I've known him since I was seven and I never seen him cry once, not for anybody or anything.

Brandon Sinclair says: (yells) - Those are brand new tires, now how do you explain it?!

Brandon Sinclair says: (yells) Those are brand new tires, now how do you explain it?!

Jim Morar says: (laughs) - I don't know man. Maybe your buddy Casper did it.

Jim Morar says: (laughs) I don't know man. Maybe your buddy Casper did it.

Brandon Sinclair says: That's right. Because you made him angry!

Jim Morar says: Then why didn't he flatten my tire?

Brandon Sinclair says: Why? 'Cause I was in control of the board...He held me responsible!

Brandon Sinclair says: Why? 'Cause I was in control of the board. He held me responsible!

Jim Morar says: (laughs) - You're crazy.

Jim Morar says: (laughs) You're crazy.

Brandon Sinclair says: (playing the Ouija board with Linda; talking to the spirit David) - David...will you be able to choose your parents when you return?

Brandon Sinclair says: (playing the Ouija board with Linda; talking to the spirit David) David, will you be able to choose your parents when you return?

Linda Brewster says: (repeats what the Ouija board spells out) - "Yes".

Linda Brewster says: (repeats what the Ouija board spells out) 'Yes'.

Jim Morar says: Bullsh*t.

Brandon Sinclair says: Why? You can't believe you were stupid enough to pick your parents.

Jim Morar says: Hey, I don't talk to cardboard.

Brandon Sinclair says: (the Ouija board starts moving frantically) - Careful Jim, you're upsetting David.

Brandon Sinclair says: (the Ouija board starts moving frantically) Careful Jim, you're upsetting David.

Jim Morar says: What's he gonna do haunt me?

Brandon Sinclair says: (talking to the Ouija) - David are you alright?

Jim Morar says: (talking about David) Yeah maybe he's late for the last flight back to limbo.

Brandon Sinclair says: (before playing the Ouija board) - Alright one more thing before we begin. The spirits are lousy spellers and a lot of them like to lie. So just to play it safe I'm gonna try to contact David; the spirit of a little boy who died about thirty years ago. (A guy at the party asks: "You mean you actually talked to the spirit before?") - Yeah I contacted him several times. For some reason he is connected to this particular board.

Yeah I contacted him several times. For some reason he is connected to this particular board.

Linda Brewster says: Why's that?

Brandon Sinclair says: Well I don't know really. It's just that every Ouija board seems to have its own dominate spirit. Maybe it's because this board was made the day David died.

Jim Morar says: (being a wise ass) - How do you know when that board was made?

Jim Morar says: (being a wise ass) How do you know when that board was made?

Brandon Sinclair says: David told me.

Jim Morar says: (being a wise ass) - How do you know he wasn't lying? I mean you said they like to lie. Didn't you...didn't you say that?

Jim Morar says: (being a wise ass) How do you know he wasn't lying? I mean you said they like to lie. Didn't you, didn't you say that?

Brandon Sinclair says: It's pronounced Ouija. Not "Ouige". It comes from the French and German words for "Yes"..."Oui" and "Ja"..."Ouija"! ...(Grabs the planchette) - And this is a planchette.

Brandon Sinclair says: For your information dude, the Ouija board has been around since recorded history. It was in wide use as far back as 540 BC.

Jim Morar says: (being a wise ass) - I guess if Barbie dolls have been around that long, you'd be...you'd be talking to them too?

Jim Morar says: (being a wise ass) I guess if Barbie dolls have been around that long, you'd be,you'd be talking to them too?

Brandon Sinclair says: Beats talking to you.

Jim Morar says: That's 'cause I use words with more than one syllable.
