"Penny Dreadful" And Hell Itself My Only Foe (TV Episode 2015) Poster

David Haig: Oscar Putney



  • [Mr. Clare discusses what true evil looks like to Oscar Putney] 

    John Clare : True evil is... above all things, seductive. When the Devil knocks at your door, he doesn't have... cloven hooves. He is beautiful and offers your heart's desire in whispered airs. Like a Siren, beckoning you to her ruinous shore.

    Oscar Putney : And what do you do, when that Siren sings?

    John Clare : You save your soul... or you give it to her.

    Oscar Putney : But then you're damned.

    John Clare : But you're not alone.

  • [Mr. Clare and Oscar Putney discuss the exhibit of Pandora's box] 

    Oscar Putney : Interestingly, I thought about putting Pandora and her wicked box in the exhibit. But in the end I didn't. I mean, how could you show what the box contained?

    John Clare : I could tell you. A mirror. Nothing but a mirror.

  • [Oscar Putney talks to Mr. Clare in his cage] 

    John Clare : Why am I here?

    Oscar Putney : It's your new home. Albeit a bit on the wee side... but you'll soon have compatriots to ease the boredom.

    Octavia Putney : It's where he belongs. Animals are right in cages!

  • [Oscar Putney tells Mr. Clare he will be the Putney's freak attraction] 

    John Clare : You're to put me on display?

    Oscar Putney : Not just you, pet. What can the carnival escapologist or fortune teller compare to living, breathing freaks?

    John Clare : You can't keep me here.

    Oscar Putney : But of course we can. That's the point, Sonny Jim. Scream your lungs out if you like. No one will hear. And even they could, who would care? You know Londoners. What care they for the suffering of malformed brutes? They will look and they will point... and they will pay. I've tasted success, Sir... and it's a meal I now wish to devour.
