Thersa Caputo: Does the word “Caribbean” [?] mean anything to you? It’s like a little… metal thingy that you use when you go rock-climbing.
Woman #2: [ crying ] My whole FAMILY died rock-climbing!
Thersa Caputo: [ excited ] Oh, my God… I really AM a MEDIUM!![ cut to Theresa solo ]
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.[ one man lowers his hand ]
Thersa Caputo: Short for SalvaTore.[ the man raises his hand again ]
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!
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…
Thersa Caputo: I’ve seen your husband…
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.[ cut to footage from all the previous locations ]
Thersa Caputo V/O: Being a medium isn’t just my job. It’s my life!
