Lily: Bed time!
Nick: Come on, Sport. I’ll carry you. What’s the matter? Huh? You’re not scared of your room, are you?
Michael: It’s dark.
Lily: It’s the nightmares, Nick.
Nick: Michael, the cellar’s dark. Your room’s dark. Everything’s dark at night. Pretty soon, we’ll turn off all the lights and then it’ll be dark everywhere. You really like the dark, don’t you, Michael? You can be yourself in the dark. But, you know? There’s one dark place that we have to be very careful in. Do you know where that is? (points to his head and laughs creepily)
