The clip explaining norman's behaviour from Psycho (1960) with John McIntire, Simon Oakland If anyone gets any answers it'll be the psychiatrist. Even I couldn't get to Norman and he knows me. You warm enough, miss? Yes. Did he talk to you? No. I got the whole story, but not from Norman. I got it from his "mother." Norman Bates no longer exists. He only half-existed to begin with. And now the other half has taken over, probably for all time. Did he kill my sister? Yes... and no. Now look, if you're trying to lay some psychiatric groundwork for some sort of plea this fellow would like to cop... [Chuckling] A psychiatrist doesn't lay the groundwork. He merely tries to explain it. But my sister is... Yes. Yes, I'm sorry. The private investigator too. If you drag that swamp somewhere in the vicinity of the motel, you'll... Uh, have you any unsolved missing persons cases on your books? Yes, two. Young girls? Like I said, the "mother." To understand it the way I understood it, hearing it from the "mother" that is from the "mother" half of Norman's mind you have to go back ten years to the time when Norman murdered his mother and her lover. He was already dangerously disturbed, had been since his father died. His mother was a clinging, demanding woman, and for years the two of them lived as if there was no one else in the world. Then she met a man, and it seemed to Norman that she threw him over for this man.
