Jim Morar
Wait a minute...the spirit killer her?
Jim Morar
Wait a minute, the spirit killer her?
Brandon Sinclair
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!
Jim Morar
Man, are you listening to yourself? You're telling me that there's a ten year old ghost flying around Fairfield killing people.
Sarabeth
You ever heard of the word "Malfeitor" before?
Sarabeth
You ever heard of the word 'Malfeitor' before?
Brandon Sinclair
Malfeitor? It's Portuguese; it means "someone evil". Why?
Brandon Sinclair
Malfeitor? It's Portuguese; it means 'someone evil'. Why?
Sarabeth
(asking about the spirit) - Was David Portuguese?
Sarabeth
(asking about the spirit) Was David Portuguese?
Brandon Sinclair
No, I don't think so.
Sarabeth
And he was only ten years old?
Brandon Sinclair
Yeah.
Sarabeth
Whoa, he must've taken some mega vitamin 'cause he was a real toughie.
Brandon Sinclair
Something's bothering you, what is it?
Sarabeth
(looks frightened) - I see danger ahead!

Brandon Sinclair
Uh, Ta-Ta for Now. (About the psychic) Uh, thanks for letting me bring her.
Jim Morar
Don't mention it...to anybody!
Jim Morar
Don't mention it, to anybody!
Jim Morar
(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
(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
Okay, so she's a bit strange. But--
Brandon Sinclair
Okay, so she's a bit strange. But...
Jim Morar
A bit strange? Her head looks like a freaking rainbow!
Brandon Sinclair
(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
(being a wise ass) You wanna know if she snores?
Brandon Sinclair

Brandon Sinclair
(begins to walk away) I should have known better.
Jim Morar
Hey! Hey! Jesus man you use to have a sense of humor.
Brandon Sinclair
Okay, can you be serious for one minute please?
Jim Morar
I'll give it a shot.
Brandon Sinclair
(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.

What? This is my fault?
Brandon Sinclair
(yells) - Those are brand new tires, now how do you explain it?!
Brandon Sinclair
(yells) Those are brand new tires, now how do you explain it?!
Jim Morar
(laughs) - I don't know man. Maybe your buddy Casper did it.
Jim Morar
(laughs) I don't know man. Maybe your buddy Casper did it.
Brandon Sinclair
That's right. Because you made him angry!
Jim Morar
Then why didn't he flatten my tire?
Brandon Sinclair
Why? 'Cause I was in control of the board...He held me responsible!
Brandon Sinclair
Why? 'Cause I was in control of the board. He held me responsible!
Jim Morar
(laughs) - You're crazy.
Jim Morar
(laughs) You're crazy.
Brandon Sinclair
(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
(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
(repeats what the Ouija board spells out) - "Yes".
Linda Brewster
(repeats what the Ouija board spells out) 'Yes'.
Jim Morar
Bullsh*t.
Brandon Sinclair
Why? You can't believe you were stupid enough to pick your parents.
Jim Morar
Hey, I don't talk to cardboard.
Brandon Sinclair
(the Ouija board starts moving frantically) - Careful Jim, you're upsetting David.
Brandon Sinclair
(the Ouija board starts moving frantically) Careful Jim, you're upsetting David.
Jim Morar
What's he gonna do haunt me?
Brandon Sinclair
(talking to the Ouija) - David are you alright?
Brandon Sinclair
(talking to the Ouija) David are you alright?
Jim Morar

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

Linda Brewster
Why's that?
Brandon Sinclair
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
(being a wise ass) - How do you know when that board was made?
Jim Morar
(being a wise ass) How do you know when that board was made?
Brandon Sinclair
David told me.
Jim Morar
(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
(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
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.

Lloyd
I don't care what you call it dude. It's just like a game, like Checkers or Chess.
Brandon Sinclair
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
(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
(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
Beats talking to you.
Jim Morar
That's 'cause I use words with more than one syllable.
