Malcolm Crowe: Wanna play a game? It's a mind-reading game. Here's how it works. I read your mind. If what I say is right, you take one step towards the chair. If what I say is wrong, you take one step back... towards the doorway. If you reach the chair, you sit down. If you reach the door, you can go. Wanna play? [Cole nods] Okay... When your mother and father were first divorced, your mom went to see a doctor like me, and he didn't help her. So you think I'm not going to be able to help you. [Cole takes a step forward] You're worried that she said she told him things—things she couldn't tell anyone else... Secrets. [Cole takes another step forwards] You have a secret, but you don't want to tell me. [Cole takes another step forwards…looking at Cole's watch] Your dad gave you that watch as a present just before he went away. [Cole takes a step back]

Malcolm Crowe: You keep pretty quiet in school, but... you're a good student, you've never really been in any serious trouble. [Cole takes another step back]

Cole Sear: We were supposed to draw a picture. Anything we wanted. I drew a man. He got hurt in the neck by another man with a screwdriver.

Malcolm Crowe: You saw that on TV, Cole? [Cole steps back again]

Malcolm Crowe: How do you draw now?

Cole Sear: I draw... people smiling, dogs running, rainbows. They don't have meetings about rainbows.

Malcolm Crowe: No, I guess they don't.

Cole Sear: What am I thinking now?
