Why can't you do it?
Because my father keeps the damn room locked. We need Edward to get us in.
Well can't you just take the key when he's sleeping or something?
You don't understand. The only thing that guy hangs onto tighter is his dick.
Will he be OK, Doc?
The years spent in isolation have not equipped him with the tools necessary to judge right from wrong. He's had no context. He's been completely without guidance. Furthermore, his work - the garden sculptures, hairstyles and so forth - indicate that he's a highly imaginative... uh... character. It seems clear that his awareness of what we call reality is radically underdeveloped.
But will he be all right out there?
Oh yeah, he'll be fine.
Why are you hiding back there? You don't have to hide from me - I'm Peg Boggs, your local Avon representative and I'm as harmless as cherry pie... [sees Edward come toward her]
Oh - I can see that I've disturbed you. I'll just be going now...
[sees his scissor hands] Oh, my. What happened to you?
I'm not finished.
