You think she can handle that?

Janet Baring: Don't worry. I a-gonna go nowhere.

Jerry: Let's take this one step at a time. Stay here. I'm gonna go back inside.
Sheriff Todd Peterson: Jerry, I can't let you go back in there. We don't even know what that thing is.
Jerry: It's a human being and she's frightened.
Sheriff Todd Peterson: Well, what are you gonna do?
Jerry: Talk to her... if I can.
