Ed: [over phone] Tell me something good.
Anna Fox: Something good.
Anna Fox: I wish you were here.
Ed: Who does that help, saying that?
Anna Fox: I can beat myself up if I want.
Ed: Go for it. It’s just an audience of one. I’m not playing.
Anna Fox: Tell me to go outside.
Ed: Why not make today the day you go outside?
Dr. Landy: Curiosity is evidence of a decreased depression pattern.
Anna Fox: People who snoop on their neighbors don’t kill themselves?
Dr. Landy: Let’s try this. People who attempt suicide lose the right to joke about it.
Ethan Russell: [to Anna] I can see your house from my room. I mean, normally. Right now, I can see my dad from your house.
Ethan Russell: I don’t know anyone here.
Anna Fox: You know me.
Ethan Russell: Not really.
Anna Fox: Well, you could.
Ethan Russell: Really? We can be friends?
Anna Fox: Sure.
Anna Fox: You’re Jane Russell.
Jane Russell 1: What makes you say that?
Anna Fox: Your son came by. Ethan.
Anna Fox: I can’t go outside.
Jane Russell 1: You didn’t go outside.
Anna Fox: No, I get panic attacks.
Jane Russell 1: Who doesn’t?
Anna Fox: I’m agoraphobic. I can’t go outside.
Jane Russell 1: Oh! Oh. You’re stuck inside this s**tty house. Oh. Oh, man. I’d hate to be stuck inside a house this s**tty.
Anna Fox: I counsel people.
Jane Russell 1: You counsel people? Oh, you’re a shrink. Oh! That’s a twist.
Jane Russell 1: Do you want to go outside?
Anna Fox: You know, I have a shrink of my own.
Jane Russell 1: Okay. Okay. I get it. I get it. Alright, sorry. That sounds very wise.
Jane Russell 1: Notice I’m not asking what made you this way.
Anna Fox: What way?
Jane Russell 1: Agoraphobic.
Anna Fox: I have anxiety. I have an anxiety disorder.
Jane Russell 1: [shows Anna a baby photo] He’s my guy. My little baby guy. You know, when you have a kid, you say, you know, “My kid. My guy,” You know, like he’s yours, like he belongs to you. That’s not really how it feels.
Anna Fox: You belong to them.
Jane Russell 1: Right. Right. You belong to them. And maybe you never belonged to anybody before. I mean, maybe you thought you belonged to your parents. You grew out of that. You certainly didn’t belong to your husband. Then this kid comes along, and he’s just got you. I don’t have to tell you that.
Anna Fox: I like your earrings.
Jane Russell 1: Oh. Oh, thanks, yeah. A gift. They’re a gift from an old boyfriend.
Anna Fox: Does your husband mind?
Jane Russell 1: I doubt he knows. He has trust issues.
Jane Russell 1: I worry about Ethan, because he’s sensitive. Family is complicated.
Anna Fox: Why is your family complicated?
Jane Russell 1: See how I changed the subject on you?
Anna Fox: I did.
Jane Russell 1: Yeah, you don’t know who you’re fooling with.
Dispatcher: [on the phone] 911, what’s your emergency?
Anna Fox: I think there’s somebody in my house.
Anna Fox: I didn’t know you were a handyman. I thought you were a singer-songwriter.
David: Which is why I am a handyman.
Alistair Russell: [over phone] Sorry, you heard what?
Anna Fox: A scream. A scream. A minute ago.
Alistair Russell: A scream?
Anna Fox: Yeah, from your house.
Alistair Russell: Sorry, the only people here are me and my boy. And we didn’t scream.
Anna Fox: Ethan, what’s going on over there?
Ethan Russell: He’s not a bad guy. He has a lot of stress. It builds up in him, and has to get it out. It’s alright!
Anna Fox: It’s not alright. Stop saying it’s alright. It’s clearly not alright.
Ethan Russell: Why are you so nice to me?
Anna Fox: Because children need protection.
Anna Fox: Look, Ethan, whatever is going on over there, no matter how bad it gets, this is a safe place. You can always come here. Always.
Ed: Don’t go look into other people’s houses.
Anna Fox: Karl says that curiosity is healthy.
Ed: And you said he was getting off on controlling you.
Anna Fox: And you said we could talk whenever I wanted to.
Anna Fox: I’m watching David leave the house.
Dr. Landy: Looks like fun, right?
Anna Fox: Looks like he’s escaping.

Anna Fox: She is across the street. I told you that, and you are not listening to me!
Dispatcher: Anna! Ma’am. Anna, did you stab your neighbor?
Anna Fox: What is this?
Detective Norelli: Ma’am, you alright?
Anna Fox: Why is he here?
Detective Little: Mr. Russell believes that you made a mistake.
Alistair Russell: You have never met my wife.
Anna Fox: She helped me one night. We spent the evening together.
Anna Fox: No! I know what I saw!
Detective Little: Nothing’s happened to anyone.
Anna Fox: Then where is she? Where’s Jane?
Jane Russell 2: [enters the room] I’m sorry we haven’t met. I’m Jane Russell.
Anna Fox: She’s not Jane.
Jane Russell 2: I promise I am.
Anna Fox: No, you’re not Jane. She’s not Jane. I know Jane. Jane’s been in my house.
Alistair Russell: This is absurd.
