-->"If you can get into that chair all by yourself, Paul," she said at last, "then I think you can fill in your own fucking n's." She then closed the door and locked it again. Paul sat looking at it for a long time, almost as if there were something to see. He was too flabbergasted to do anything else.

** [[spoiler:All whilst discussing her extremely nihilistic viewpoint of the world, with humans essentially being trapped rats with broken backs. It really gives an insight into how insane Annie really is.

** Apparently, Kathy Bates was ''[[NightmareFetishist looking forward]]'' to this scene in the movie, but it was deemed to be too [[{{Narm}} unintentionally]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice funny]] to film.

* The very first time we see Annie show her true colors in the film. Paul wakes up from his slumber in the middle of the night to see his caretaker, or rather captor, standing by his bed in a menacing fashion, having read Paul's latest Misery book and discovers that her beloved leading character was killed off. She does not take the news well. Paul tries to reassure her that in spite of her death, her spirit lives on. [[BerserkButton Big mistake]]:
-->'''Annie''': "[[SuddenlyShouting I DON'T WANT HER SPIRIT!! I WANT HER!! AND YOU MURDERED HER!!]]"

** Kind of an AdultFear for writers, or any other creative artist. Imagine working on something for months of your life, putting all you have into it... and now it's gone, and you will never be able to recreate it. Just to twist the knife, Paul thought the novel was really good, far better than his ''Misery'' novels.

* The scene in the movie where Annie convinces Paul that he needs to burn his new manuscript. While slowly tossing lighter fluid on his bed. All with a sweet smile on her face.

** This is toned down a good deal from the book [[spoiler:in which Annie chops off Paul's foot, to punish him for an escape attempt, and later his thumb, after an argument over problems with the typewriter she supplied him]].

Pretty much all of the horror of ''Misery'' comes from Annie Wilkes, one of the most horrifying women ever put to print and screen. How do we fear thee? Let us count the ways...

* While Annie is visiting her "Laughing Place," Paul ventures outside his room again for supplies. He picks up Annie's "Memory Lane" scrapbook and leafs through it. He finds out why she was "up there on the stand in Denver," and more importantly, that [[spoiler: she's an extremely crafty serial killer who's been murdering people since she was a child. He (not to mention the reader) now knows that Annie is much more dangerous and terrifying than he ever suspected.]]
