- No, Daddy!
I just wanted to play with the dolls.
No, Daddy, no!
- Did you have a nightmare?
- Saw a strange man.
Can you sleep with me?
- What did we say about sleeping with mom and dad, hm?
- Only in thunderstorms.
- That's right, because you're a big boy now.
- Hey, Mommy, will you check under the bed for monsters?
- I think there's somebody in my bed.
- Oh, hey.
You aren't the owner by chance, are you?
- Oh, no, no, no.
My name's Johannes or Johann.
Friends call me Joe.
I fix things around here, the whole neighborhood.
- Hello, Johann.
- Hi, Joe.
- Is the real estate agent still inside?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, go right inside, take a look around.
This is a very special place.
But don't forget, you buy the house, you buy me too.
Because I'll be around.
I'm always here.
See you around.
- I love this old, old look.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
You must be Carrie, right?
I hope it's okay, Johann outside told us to come on in.
- Oh, Johann, he's a fixture around here.
You guys must be the Burrows.
And you're late, I was just about to lock up.
- Oh, yeah, sorry about that, the plane was delayed.
- There's still some time.
I can show you around the house if you'd like.
- Yes, we would love that.
What do you think?
Do you want to see the rest of the house, Johnny?
- Uh huh.
- Okay, let's do it.
- Alright, come on up.
- Really, really sorry we're late.
- That's okay, happens all the time.
- No, I feel terrible.
It was pretty hectic.
- And if you'll follow me this way.
- This is our main parlor room.
This room, actually this house was built in the late 1700s.
- Wow, pretty old.
- Yeah, it contains all of its original wood flooring.
You can see there's vaulted ceilings and...
- Yeah, and--
- Fireplace in here.
- Yeah, and this organ, is it a functioning organ?
- It's actually, it comes with the house.
It's a 200 year old organ.
It's actually been featured in shows
of Phantom of the Opera, you might actually remember that.
- We could learn to play the piano together.
- That would be fun.
- Do any of you guys play, you play at all?
- No. - No.
We've been talking about taking lessons.
- For a long, long time.
- Oh, well, now's your opportunity.
What about your son?
Does your son have any sports or--
- It would be the perfect age for him to learn as well.
Now exactly how old is he again?
- Eight years old.
- Oh, he's eight years old.
Yeah, that's a really, really good time
to start getting your kids into the arts.
- Yeah, it'd be the perfect timing,
he's like a little sponge.
- Look at this room.
- Aha, here you are.
Where have you been?
- This would be perfect for my work.
- Actually, this room was used as a home office before.
What did you say you do, Mr. Burrows?
- Oh, I'm a writer.
But my beautiful wife here is a neurophysicist,
she's practically a brain surgeon.
- No, no, he always gives me too much credit.
I don't have a MD, just a PhD.
No brain surgeries for me.
- Oh, wow!
- Jen, this is a sign.
- This, it's clearly a sign.
- Right, alright?
Wow, this is so cool. - It's a sign.
- Johnny, buddy, look at this.
This is an old, old, old typewriter, huh?
- So Stanley just got a new writing assignment
and that's sort of the reason
we left the New York City rat race
and opted for something a little bit more traditional.
- Oh, well, this place is perfect for your family.
Your son is gonna love it.
- I think we are all gonna love it.
What's in here?
- That cabinet was left here
by the original tenants.
It's a very old antique with quite a history.
- It's creepy.
And creepy dolls, huh?
- Oh boy.
- Also left by the last tenant.
- Well, you know what, you can go ahead and leave it here.
I could always use a little inspiration for my work.
- Stanley writes horror.
