“Try not to panic, Mr. Peterson. The dreadful fact of the matter is that something has gone wrong.”
It isn’t a matter of what you want. It’s what I want. And need. And what I have the power to get.
The brick wall which burst open and released the spirit of the Reverend Trask has somehow been sealed up again.
I tried to summon you earlier, but you resisted me.
Are you sure that you convinced her that you killed me earlier this evening?
Sam is determined not to let his handicap get in the way of his social life.
No, you don’t believe he tricked you. You wouldn’t be so upset about it!
That’s where you and I differ. I do have the slightest idea.
You spend much too much time thinking about the problems of other people.
There’s a chance your father may have the same dream, very soon.
By the way, Mr. Peterson, don’t be afraid. At worst, she can only use you.
We must think of a new plan to destroy the witch.
What shall I do with you? I could turn you into an animal.
Tell her I’ve discovered the original.
If it fails, and you have to go to her, you must lot — let — let her know that I am alive. Is that understood?
I shouldn’t be a bit surprised if I did.
If that dream was as terrifying for him as it was for me…
I’ve told you witches are dreadfully clever.
Death, in all its forms and manifestations.
What I’ve done with you before now has been mere child’s play.
No one — not even the evil woman who hates him most — is aware of his plight.
I came to see how your willpower had held out.
Well, what about the dream? You said there was some danger.
Don’t un-overestimate my influence with him.
All right, I knew he was alive.
And how is our favorite witch?
You have no concept of the power that I have.
Either your law practice is not yet lucrative, or your taste in furniture is deplorable. I do hope it’s the former.
No, all of those things would be quite unappropriate.
I’m going to give you something to think about — something to fill your every waking moment.
A pouch of pipe tobacco, which I promptly analyzed.
What was all that about your father having the same dream you had?
Tomorrow: That Endless Summer.
Dark Shadows bloopers to watch out for:
Stokes instructs Tony, “You must use all your willpower to resist as long as you can. If it fails, and you have to go to her, you must lot — let — let her know that I am alive.”
Maggie asks Joe about Adam: “What was he doing here with Pop that night, when you came in?” She’s referring to yesterday’s episode, when Joe found Adam at the Evans cottage. That scene took place in the morning.
In act 2, Stokes and Maggie talk over each other:
Stokes: There’s a chance your father may have the same dream —
Maggie: You’ve got to be —
Stokes: — very soon.
Maggie: You’ve got to be mistaken!
When Cassandra tells Tony, “I tried to summon you earlier,” somebody coughs in the studio.
Behind the Scenes:
The green glass lamp appears in three places today; they must have had more than one. There’s a green lamp on the desk in Tony’s apartment, and another near the front door at the Evans cottage. Then the credits run over a shot of Tony’s apartment, and there’s a larger green lamp next to the couch. (Thanks to prop-spotter Prisoner of the Night.)
Tomorrow: That Endless Summer.
