Norman Bates is bae
For me, Anthony Perkins is Norman Bates. My Psycho fics are based on Alfred Hitchcock's classic and the three sequels, Psycho II, Psycho III and Psycho IV: The Beginning. Specifically, but not exclusively, the friendship between Norman and Mary in Psycho II, a movie in which Norman is portrayed as a very sympathetic character. Tony Perkins was an underrated genius who brought Norman to life perfectly. The fact that he was never even nominated for an Oscar for Psycho will always be a travesty of justice!
Quotes from Psycho II
Mary: I thought you were wonderful today.
Mary: The way you handled that Toomey guy. What an a$$hole. I could have killed him, and you were so cool.
Norman: I don't kill people any more, remember?
Norman, after telling Mary how he poisoned his mother and being asked if he's all right now: Sure. Otherwise they wouldn't have given me a job in a diner, would they?
Mary (in Mother's room): Is this the room where you had your troubles?
Norman: One of them, yeah.
"See you tonight!" Norman, waving Mary off to work with a big proud grin on his face.
Norman: There hasn't been any trouble, has there?
Sheriff: Yes there has.
Norman: What sort?
Sheriff: The old sort.
Norman, after barricading himself and Mary in his bedroom: She'll kill you. I know she will.
Mary: Oh, Norman. You're mad, don't you know that? You're mad as a hatter!
