A Phoenix secretary embezzles $40,000 from her employer's client, goes on the run, and checks into a remote motel run by a young man under the domination of his mother.
Anthony Perkins was paid US$40,000 dollars for his role, which is exactly the same amount of money that Marion Crane embezzles.
The rain didn't last long, did it? So... where are you off too?
Norman Bates: Sorry. I didn't mean to pry.
Marion Crane: Oh, I don't know. I guess I'm looking for a private island someplace where I can be alone and no one can find me.
Norman Bates: What are you running away from?
Marion Crane: Why do you...
When Marion pulls into the motel during the rain and sees the office, she drives over to it and stops. In the next shot two lights on a stand can be seen to the immediate left of the office, left by the crew.
