  • Norman Bates: Uh, I saw someone!
    Dr. Raymond: Where?
    Norman Bates: Up there! In that window!
    Dr. Raymond: I haven't had a tenant in the house for years.
    Norman Bates: I guess I'm just nervous!
    Dr. Raymond: Well, that's understandable under the circumstances.
    Norman Bates: Yeah.
  • Norman Bates: I don't kill people anymore.
  • Dr. Raymond: Norman was not convicted of murder. He was found not guilty by reasons of insanity, and since he is no longer insane, he has the right to live a normal life like you and I.
  • Norman Bates: Mary, I'm becoming confused again, aren't I?
    Mary: Of course not!
    Norman Bates: [holding the knife] Don't lie to me! Not you!
    Mary: Yes, Norman, you are becoming confused again!
  • Norman Bates: Would you care to share my toasted cheese sandwich?
    Mrs. Spool: No thank you.


  • Although never stated in Psycho I or II, Lila apparently married her murdered sister's boyfriend Sam Loomis.
  • Not based on the book of the same name.
  • The original house set was used and the motel was reconstructed.
  • Anthony Perkins was very jealous of Meg Tilly and how the press was making more of a big deal about her role, so he tried to get her fired many times while making the film.
  • The reflection of young Norman Bates in the doorknob when he flashes back to his mothers' poisoning is Oz Perkins, Anthony Perkins son.
