    • Ruby: And you dress like Norman Bates when he dresses like Norman Bates' mother.

      Referencing the 1960 movie Psycho, which initially chronicles the exploits of a secretary embezzling money from her employer. She hides at an isolated motel owned by Norman Bates, who likes to stuff animals. He claims to have a mother who lives in the house at the top of the hill, but it is eventually revealed that she is a figment of Norman's delusional mind, and he dresses up like her to kill anyone who offends "Mother."
