【Season 5 Episode 5】
「Sometimes I see Mother when she's not really there. Sometimes I become her.」
【Season 5 Episode 6】
「Maybe it's time there's no secrets between us.
The only secret between us is that you don't exist. I made you up. My mother is not here. Now get out of my way.」
「It's hard to be lonely. But it's also hard to love people, and I think that that's the trap. The little private trap that everyone lives in. And we need people, but that need can destroy us. Once you care about someone, it rules you. And who even knows, at the end of the day, if that person is really who you think they are. Or if they're even real at all.」
「None of this makes any sense.
It was a horrible tragedy. Tragedies don't make sense. That is why they are so horrible.」
「You know what's scarier? Being trapped inside yourself, a private trap, never getting what you want.」
「The pain that I keep you from feeling, you need to feel it. Like Adam wanting all the knowledge and eating the apple in the Garden of Eden, you get the truth, but you also see the pain.」
【Season 5 Episode 8】
「The artificiality of scripted drama doesn't hold a candle to true crime.」
【Season 5 Episode 9】
「Everyone has multiple personalities. We pull out what we need when we have to.」
「I wouldn't kill anybody, Emma. You know that. It's me, Norman. Your Norman, your friend.
Where's Norman? Can I talk to Norman? Can you tell him that I miss him?」
「Norman's dangerous. → He's not dangerous to me. → You sound like Norma.」
【Season 5 Episode 10】
「She's dead, Norman. You have to deal with it. You need to come, and you need to turn yourself in, and we need to get you help.
That's what you want for me? To be shut up in some prison for the criminally insane and drugged out of my mind?
I don't know what I want for you! What I really want is something that can never happen, okay? I want you to be happy, and I want you to be well. I want Mom to be alive again. I want both of you to... I want you guys to meet ma daughter. I want to have a Christmases together, okay? I want all of these things to have never happened.
Well, if you believe hard enough, then you can make it that way.
No, you can't! You can't.」
