Dylan Massett: You wouldn't want to actually hurt anybody though, would you?
Norman Bates: Of course I wouldn't want to. I've never wanted to hurt anyone. Except you once in a while.
In "Psycho" Norman tells Marion that he only stuffs birds. He stated he could never do a dog or a cat like other people. However, in "Bates Motel" he first acquires his interest in taxidermy with a dog and is seen working on other mammals as well.
Names in the main credits have one letter (in each part of the name) in blue neon, like the Bates Motel sign. The letter is usually at or near the middle of the name.
