[Hangs up the phone] I've got to go. Bye. [Looks at Erin]
Something the matter, child? You don't look so good.
I thought you said you didn't have a phone.
[Watches Henrietta cradle the baby after she discovered that it was related to the hitch-hiker] That's not your baby. [pause]
YOU STOLE HER!
She's MINE. [Erin starts feeling an overwhelming emotion of everything that's been going on in combination of the drugged-up tea. She walks a little ways through the hallway, into the living room and then faints]
rin, I'm dead. Please finish it. You can do it.
I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't.
here's a knife. Erin, do it. Do it!
I can't do it.
Do it! Do it! Do it!
Please forgive me. Please forgive me.
What the hell are you doing in my house?
All right, look. We're just looking for are friend, all right. Then we'll be out of here.
You ain't running things, boy except your mouth.
This guy's crazy.
You little turd, you're so dead, you don't even know it.
What are we gonna do?
I don't know... uh... we gotta call the cops, I guess.
Um, yeah, on a list of bad ideas, that one goes, way up there. Oh, police officers, please, as you inspect a crime scene, which is now our van, please, ignore the colorful pinata, filled with marijuana, in case you happen to come across it, because it played no part, you know, whatsoever in the demise of this unfortunate, young, woman.
The film which you are about to see is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of 5 youths. It is all the more tragic in that they were young. But had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected, nor would they have wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as they were to see that day. For them, an idyllic summer afternoon became a nightmare. For 30 years, the files collected dust in the cold-cases divison of the Travis County Police Department. Over 1,300 pieces of evidence were collected from the crime scene at the Hewitt residence. Yet none of the evidence was more compelling than the classified police footage of the crime-scene walk-through.
Adams (officer in walkthrough):
Test test test... OK, uh, this is, uh, August 20th, 1973. The time is, uh, 3:47 P.M. Our location is the Hewitt residence on Route 17; it's where victim one was found. We're gonna do a walk-through, and we're now descending the stairs into the furnace room... uh... There's - over here - there's scratch marks along the wall. There's some more over here, right over here. And, oh, there's something over here. Seems... Looks like a clot of hair and an embedded fingernail. All right, we're gonna go move into the actual furnace room.
The events of that day were to lead to one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history - the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
