But in the consideration son's services, we'd like to offer you with a certain sum in compensation.
Two hundred pounds.
He's badly hurt... but he is not in any pain...
Here lies our beloved Herbert
Come back... you'll be cold.
It is colder for my son.
The visitor had come to tell the Whites that their son had been caught in the machinery and died in the process. They have gotten the two hundred pounds they had wished for, but in exchange, Herbert had died. The camera is angled so that viewers could see that the visitor was ashamed and the horror on the Whites' faces.
You're mad! You don't know what you're saying!
We've had the first wish granted, why not the second?
The paw! Why hadn't I thought of this... Get it and wish my boy alive again!
This is an exclusive scene, showing Mr. and Mrs. White mourning their son's death. The camera, angled, once again, to be able to show the character's body language and expression.
It is foolish and wicked.
Mr. White was unable to sleep from the noises of his wife's sobs in the night. She is unable to let go of the grief she held of Herbert's death.
The close up scene illustrates the feverish expression of Mrs. White as she has the idea to bring her boy back to life and Mr. White's uneasy expression as he listens to her.
Was the first wish not enough for you?
Mr. White was hesitant of making the wish to bring his son back, for he remembered that last time he had wished for something that messed with the fate of their lives.
After Mr. White wishes his son back against his will, the wish immediately came true. As the knocks sounded at the door, he searched the ground in the dark, looking for the Monkey's Paw, while his wife tried to open the door. The moment she did, he had found it and sent Herbert back to his grave. Now, he stood comforting her, as her grief then overwhelmed her.
