Thersa Caputo: Okay -- your father's showing me, like a, like a big pot of SAUCE! [ the client smiles ] Okay, he wants you to know he's at peace... and he has the sauce.

Thersa Caputo: [ excited ] Oh, my God... I really AM a MEDIUM!!

Thersa Caputo: One of the problems with being a medium on Long Island, is that a lot of people have shared experiences with their loved ones.

Thersa Caputo: Okay... uhhh... who had the grandfather who choked on a meatball parm?

[ everyone in the room raises their hand ]

Everybody. Okay... uhhhh... His name was Sal.

Thersa Caputo: Short for SalvaTore.

Thersa Caputo: Well, they're all at peace... and they're all bowling.

[ everyone in the room claps their hands ]

Thersa Caputo: Yes! This is what I do!

[ cut to Theresa solo ]

Thersa Caputo: The thing about Long Island is, no one's phased by a medium just coming up to you!

[ cut to Theresa approaching a woman in the supermarket ]

Thersa Caputo: My name is Theresa, I talk to the dead...

Wife: Yeah?

Thersa Caputo: I've seen your husband...

Wife: Yeah?

Thersa Caputo: He's in a very bad place... he looks a mess, he looks terrible.

[ pan over to reveal the husband standing right there ]

Husband: Hey, FUCK you!

[ cut to Larry Caputo ]

Larry Caputo: Theresa's always working. Last week, we went to this nice picnic. Just the four of us -- her, me, our daughter... and this little guy! [ he points to his goatee ] Of course, Theresa -- she can't help herself.

[ cut to the Caputo Family on a picnic ]

Thersa Caputo: I'm seeing nuts... whose father loved nuts? Anybody? [ she turns to a squirrel ] Was it you? Okay. He wants you to know that he loves you... and he's at peace.

Thersa Caputo V/O: Being a medium isn't just my job. It's my life!
