It's just a dream, Dylan.
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.
The outside of the Bates house is extremely small. The front porch is no more than 10 feet wide, and the whole house less than 25 feet wide, and perhaps 30 feet deep. (This is about the size of 4 of their hotel rooms.) And yet many of the rooms inside the house are much larger than this. The master bedroom alone is at least 30'x30', and it is just one room on the upper hallway, that includes a vaulted stairway.
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.
