She scratched them and made them go away.

She's not for sale.
Nothing's for sale in here.
Now, you must get out of here quick.

All the top partners from the firm will be there.
I'll be back in time.
I'm only going for a couple of days.
Well, that's good, Because I was planning on announcing our engagement then, And it would behoove you to be present.
"behoove me"-- I love it.
Every time you get in a snit, You act like I'm opposing counsel.
I'm sorry.
I didn't mean that.
I just wish you'd get this darn Antique store business over with.
Lloyd, you know I want to get it over with As quickly as you.
I don't know why this uncle lewis left me the store.
I hadn't even met him, let alone this cousin That I'm supposed to be sharing everything with.
(lips smacking) Maybe I can sue your cousin For a greater percentage of the inheritance.
I can get in some litigation experience.
(clears throat) (door closing) (chimes tinkling) Hello.
Anybody here? (chimes tinkling) Hello.
(groans) (sighs) (cackling) (screams) Oh.
Ow! Hey, hey, hey.
That hurt.
Don't tell me.

That's me.
Ryan the lion.
How'd you know? Uncle lewis' lawyer told me you'd be here.
I'm your cousin, micki.
How do you do? Michelle foster? (laughs) Michelle? Geez.
I I-I thought the telegram said michael foster.
I was expecting a guy.
Forgive me, please.
This, um, sure does change things, though.
Not really.
Place sure looks great, though, doesn't it? It'll be a blast Fixing this place up, hmm? Already looks blasted.
Oh, great.
No electricity.
(laughs) Well, it'll be turned on tomorrow.
Where are you going? To call my fiancé To let him know I arrived safely.
Is that all right with you? It's fine with me, sure.
Hope you can yell real loud.
Don't tell me.
(sighs) Something tells me you had a little turbulence On your flight or something, hmm? I've had a little turbulence all day.
Hey, hey.
Wow! Uncle lewis must have been a blast At Halloween, eh? What kind of a man would be interested in stuff like this? (sighs) My kind of guy, huh? Why do you think he left this place to us? Oh, he didn't.
The lawyer said it was in probate.
We won by default.
Lucky us.
Would you look at this! (ryan laughing) Please god, let this be The most fantastic car I've ever seen.

Where would m'lady care to go? Home, james.
And don't spare the horses.
(yowls) (micki shrieking) (grunts) (sighs) Oh! You know what that means.
Almost certain death.
(mewing) Micki, it was just a cat.
Look, I don't care.
Let's get down to business.
I think we should first get an appraisal of this property.
What are you doing? Don't you want to know what you inherited? All the ins and outs, nooks and crannies? No! I do.
Look, this place is ours.
Good, bad, or indifferent, we own it.
Whatever's behind that door is ours.
Listen to me-- I'm starting to sound like monty hall.
(doors creaking) (grunts) Ryan: What did I tell you? A veritable gold mine.
Unbelievable! Oh.
I don't know, ryan.
Something doesn't feel right about this place.
(metal clanks) What was that? I'll check it out.
(doors creaking) (metal clanging) Micki: Ryan! Ryan, stop fooling around.
Micki! Don't panic.
Ryan! Ryan: Micki! Micki?! Micki! (micki gasps) (squeals) Ryan: Micki! Micki, don't panic.

Micki! Micki, where are you going? Micki! Oh! (creaking) What's that? Look, I really don't care.
No, no, no, no, no.
Let's take a look here.
What do you think this is? It's a record of everything uncle lewis sold.
So what? Micki, come on.
I almost suffocated down there.
All right, all right, so we got a few kinks to iron out.
And that's not all.
There was this doll What about a doll? Never mind.
(sighs) Hey, don't blame me for all this.
You really are a tight ass, aren't you? (grunting) hey! (shattering) That's coming out of your share, okay? Oh! Hey, hey, hey.
No, no, no, no, no.
You might hit me this time.
(both sighing) Something tells me you don't want to run this store with me.
Look, ryan, this might come As a great shock to you, But I don't want this store.
I came here to sell everything off.
Sell it? This has been given to us as a sacred trust.
Passed down from generation to generation Oh, cut the crap, ryan.
We didn't even know uncle lewis.
Thank god for that.
What if I don't want to sell? Ryan We're selling.
Over my dead body.
(sighs) I don't know.
Maybe you're right.
Oh, it happens occasionally.
Yeah, I never wanted to run a business anyway.
You get her name and number? (sighs) There's nothing wrong with running a business, As long as it's not this one.
I hate this place.
Oh, yes, I know, I know.
to cost a thousand.
Man: Yes, but it's gone down since then.
Excuse me.
I was here about six months ago.
You had an antique doll.
Its mouth moved like a puppet? Yeah.
Yeah, I think we still got that.
Um Mm-hmm.
This the one? It sure is.
How much is it? Well, for you, I'll give it to you for, um I'm sorry, that's not for sale.
What do you mean? I mean it's not for sale.
I didn't know you were putting it out.
I'm really sorry.
Micki, what are you doing? I can't explain it.
What This is no go.
You said we got to sell everything.
This is everything, okay? Thank you very much.
I can't tell you how happy This will make my little daughter.
Ryan: Hey, our pleasure.
Simms: Will you take a check? Ryan: Sure.
By tomorrow, we should have just about everything sold, hmm? Just in time for you to go to that picnic With perry mason.
(door creaking) (chimes tinkling) (distant rattling) (whispers): What was that? (whispers): Probably nothing, like before.
Well, then, why are you whispering? (wood creaking) Terrific! Now We're being robbed! Drop it! (gasps) now! (poker clanging) Who are you? Who are Who are we? Who are you? Jack marshak.
I supply this store with antiques.
You got a funny way of delivering.
This isn't a delivery.
It's more of a pickup.
Lewis vendredi Always had a selective memory About paying my invoices.
But about you You knew uncle lewis? Uncle lewis? That's right.
He was our uncle.
You look too normal to be relatives of vendredi.
Why are you talking about him in the past tense? Uncle lewis is dead.
Lewis, dead? (sighs) Your Your uncle and I were boyhood friends.
I taught him his first magic, Read him his first tarot, Opened his eyes to the world beyond our own.
And, which one is that? The world of spirits-- the netherworld.
Oh, you don't expect us To believe that, do you? You can expect me to believe that.
You may not want to.
Look, lewis was always deathly afraid Of growing old, and he was passionate about wealth, And those two things ruled him Until he dabbled in things that I wanted no part of.
Like what? Like dusins.
Devil worship.
Very good.
How did you know that? Comic books.
Dusins is the name-- ancient name-- Given by the gauls for a demon or devil.
Jack: Yes, diablerie.
Lewis was always telling me That he'd done his research, And that he was ready to make a pact With the devil-- something to do with his antiques-- In exchange for which, he would get immense wealth And immortality.
Well, he couldn't have done that.
He wouldn't be dead, would he? It would seem so.
I suppose we'll never really know Unless, maybe, he left some kind of record About what happened to his antiques.
Guess what.
You found something? (creaking) Ah So, the manifest came from up there? Yeah, yeah, what are What's all the hieroglyphics on the side, though? Theurgical runes of the demogorgon, my boy.
That's black magic.
Lewis always liked secret compartments.
He had another one over here somewhere.
What's all this? Oh.
What is it? What's wrong? Oh, look up in the manifest for me, will you? See if If there's any metal weathervane That was sold this year.
Uh-huh, mm-hmm.
What date? Um, may 29.
On may the 30th, a man was struck by lightning Putting up a metal weathervane.
What about a 17th century ball gown In white, trimmed with lace? Yeah, there's a ball gown.
What date? March 14.
March 16, a woman died in a horrible fire Wearing that at a ball-- he made the pact.
And there's many more.
We're into some heavy-duty stuff here.
Come on, this is ridiculous.
If he had made this immortality pact with the devil, He'd still be alive, wouldn't he? Unless he tried to get out of it.
You don't break a pact with the devil.
Why? Uh, what happens? Belial, satan He wins both ways.
In this case, lewis lost his life, And the antiques remain cursed.
What about the antiques we sold? Those, too, I should think.
The doll.
What doll? The doll we sold.
The doll in the vault.
What are you talking about? I thought it was my imagination, But that doll turned and stared at me Like it was alive.
Mary: Oh, wow! Thank you, daddy.
Let's not let your mother know about this, okay? Okay.
Can you still talk? I can still do everything, mary, and more.
Simms: Harold, that daughter of yours Left her bicycle in the driveway again.
What about her? We can do anything we want.
(chuckling) (crickets chirping, dog barks in distance) Isn't it just like you To buy the child a present when she doesn't deserve one? But she liked it so much.
You know, when I first married you, That child was spoiled rotten.
All she had to do was snap her fingers, And you'd jump.
She just lost her mother.
I I tried to make up for it.
How do you expect a child to appreciate anything When she doesn't earn it? It would break her heart If I take that doll away from her now.
Let me handle it.
(sighs) Did you find it? No.
Here it is-- it's got the address.
I've got my coat.
You coming, jack? No, there are still things in this manifest That disturb me deeply.
There's a card reader I know, A medium.
May be able to shed some light.
You do know that it's not too late to go home And forget all of this ever happened.
No, I'm not going to think about going home Until we get it back.
I'm not totally convinced about this curse thing, But if there's the slightest chance That you're right, A little girl has that doll.
(music box plays lullaby) Are you having fun? Uh-huh-- are you? Lots.
You know Your mommy's really very mean to you.
She's not my real mom.
(sighs) I hate her.
Oh, I see.
She doesn't let you buy as many toys as your daddy, does she? Nope.
She didn't even want me to have you.
Hmm, I think that maybe she should be punished, don't you? Okay, who wants some more cake? Nobody can have any if they've been bad.
What do you think we should do? I think we should (door opening) Mary.
I want to have a little talk.
No, I'm having a tea party with my friends.
Don't you speak to me in that tone of voice, young lady.
I don't hate you, mary.
I don't like the way you've been acting very much.
All right.
Then I'll clean up my room.
I'm sorry, it's too late for that.
Now, you left your bicycle down on that driveway again After you promised me not to.
I'm going to have to take away your new doll.
Now, you can have her back in a week After you've had some time to think about Keeping your promises, mary.
No, you'll never take her away.
Mary, give me that doll.
Mary, you give me that doll this instant.
Now, you get in your room, young lady, And you stay there! (sighs) (closet door creaks shut) Are you sure you know what you're doing? No.
At least we have one thing in common.
All right, that's it.
You're asking for it now.
Give me that doll.
(eerie lullaby plays) Mary, did you hear me? I said, "give me that doll.
" (hissing) (gasps) (screams) (lullaby continues) (dog barking) (garbled radio transmission) Looks like we're too late.
Excuse me.
Do you know what happened? She fell down the stairs.
It's awful-- such a nice family.
Ryan: There she is.
With the doll.
Don't be afraid, I'm your friend.
We just want to talk to you for a minute.
You're not a friend.
Go away.

Simms: I'm here, sweetheart, I'm here.
Where am I? You're in the hospital.

Simms whimpers) No No! No! Oh, please! (lullaby plays) (cries): No.

): Nurse edward to ward five.
Ryan, I'm getting really scared.
We have to tell jack.

It's all over.
Yeah? What about the other antiques? (mary cries) Ow! Poor baby.
Oh, baby.
Ow! Oh, you're going to be okay.
(cries) come on.
(door creaks) Unfortunately, once the objects were cursed, They can't be destroyed, So that's the best place for them.
Locked away where no one else can get their hands on them.
And Vice versa.
So much for innocent playthings.
What do you think's going to happen to mary? Oh, a good shrink ought to be able to fix her up In 20 years.
Lloyd, honey, We'll have to put the caterers on hold.
Yeah, it's got to do with the wedding.
No, I don't know how long.
Uncle lewis left his affairs in a terrible state.
Lloyd, darling, you don't understand.
I have no choice, I Lloyd? (clicks) Lloyd? Maybe we should change the name of our place.
What do you think? I've always been partial to the name "curious goods," myself.
This means we have to get back Everything uncle lewis sold.
Every pin, every tie tack, Every stick of furniture.
Not to mention everything we sold.
Great inheritance, huh? Where do we begin? Oh, my god!
