You will have one job: You do what I say. You clean up my house. Garbage bags, mops, bucket, broom - they are your tools. Breakfast. You will serve me breakfast, every morning for the rest of your life. You will not eat or drink anything without my permission. You only eat after I have eaten, and only what I have left on my plate.
You hear that? That means that I'm bringing one back. You have 10 seconds to open these locks. Every night I bring home a newspaper. After I finish reading it, I want you to try and find stories about missing people. You cut them out nice and neat and you put them in the scrapbook. There is no phone in this house. The TV is off limits unless I offer it. If someone knocks at the - well, no one's gonna knock. If you steal from me, you get a beating. If you try an' escape, or you don't keep the house clean, you get a beating. If you make me nervous, or get in my way at all, a beating. From now on this is your world. It is only you, me, and them. I will call you Rabbit.
Just study. You don't want to be shackled to this house for rest of your life, do you?
Good. There's hope for you yet. So, study hard and maybe you and I can work out a deal.
Deal for what?
Some freedom. You know, get off the chain, get out of the house. Get a girl. You're older now, I think that, uh, you should have a taste of a woman real soon.
Without education, you're f***ed. I mean, you've seen some things. I've showed you some things for sure, but you haven't understood them. You ever do a puzzle? You know the kind of puzzle that has the picture on the outside of the box? That's what people are. Pictures on the outside, pieces inside.
[after Rabbit stabs Angie]
I know - I know it hurts real bad, but you just gotta stay quiet, okay?
You stabbed me.
I had to or he would have.
[Rabbit takes off his shirt and places it over the wound]
I tried to miss the vital organs. I think I did okay.
How do you know? Look at me!
I told you. I know how your body works.
