[Richie Tozier drives up to the Derry Library and quickly runs up to the young female library aide (played by Megan Leitch) standing at the front desk]
LIBRARY AIDE: May I help you?
RICHIE: [out of breath] Mike Hanlon ...
LIBRARY AIDE: He stepped out a short while ago. I'm pretty sure he's coming back.
RICHIE: Good. Uh, I'm gonna sit here, I'm gonna wait here for him ...
[he sits down and tries to get his mind off things by reading a magazine]
RICHIE: [to himself] Come on, Tozier. Get a grip ...
[from off-camera, the library aide tries handing him a cup of water, which startles him and causes him to scream]
LIBRARY AIDE: [apologetically] You looked like you could use this ... It's just water.
RICHIE: [takes the cup] Thank you ...
LIBRARY AIDE: [smiles and walks away]
RICHIE: [stares at her backside as she's walking away]
PENNYWISE: [speaking from off-camera in a voice that only Richie can hear] A little young for you, isn't she, Richie?
[Richie nervously starts looking around]
PENNYWISE: [from off-camera] Beep beep, Richie!
RICHIE: [out loud] I didn't hear that ... I didn't!
MALE PATRON: [sitting next to Richie] I beg your pardon?
PENNYWISE: [from off-camera] Come on up, Richie!
[Richie looks up to the second floor of the library and sees Pennywise the Clown hiding his face behind a newspaper]
PENNYWISE: I got a balloon for you ... [evil laugh]
[Pennywise puts the paper down to reveal his face]
PENNYWISE: Don'cha want a balloon? [evil laugh]
[Pennywise suddenly gets up from his chair, as it is clear that the other patrons in the library are oblivious to his presence]
PENNYWISE: Wattsamatta? One balloon not enough? Try a bunch!
[he points to the ceiling, as a large number of balloons - that only Richie can see - fall and being to pop, spraying all of the patrons (who, again, are oblivious to all of this) and covering them in blood]
RICHIE: [screams as a balloon pops right in his face and covers him with blood]
[Pennywise continues to laugh hysterically, as Richie stumbles towards the front desk and the confused library aide]
LIBRARY AIDE: Is everything all right?
PENNYWISE: [yelling from the second floor] Last chance, Tozier! Get out, before it gets dark tonight! You're too old to stop me! You're all too old!
RICHIE: [to the library aide] Tell Mike Hanlon, if you see him--
PENNYWISE: [puts his leg over the bannister and starts yelling to no one in particular] Excuse me, sir! Do you have Prince Albert in a can? You do? Well, you better let the poor guy out! [crazy laughter]
RICHIE: [starts yelling at the library aide in order to drown out the noise Pennywise is making that only he can hear] Tell Mike Hanlon, that I had to go ... that I had to get cleaned up! Tell him! Tell him! Tell him I'll see him tonight!
PENNYWISE: Get out!
[Richie heads for the exit, as the library aide fidgets nervously after having to deal with this strange man]
PENNYWISE: [yelling after Richie as he heads for his car and drives off] Last chance, Tozier! Get out! Get out while you can ... Excuse me, ma'am! Is your refrigerator running? It is? Well, you better catch it before it runs away! [crazy laughter] Oh, I kill myself!
It is important to highlight that all the childhood members of the Losers' Club grow up to be "unusually successful" professional adults, contrasting sharply with their status as adolescent Losers and misfits. Their success and accompanying affluence appear to have been the result of some supernatural tinkering, as their collective success has insured their physical distance from Derry and thereby aided It in setting up barriers to the memory of their adolescent summer together. Only Mike Hanlon (Tim Reid) has remained behind to "keep the lighthouse for us," taking up his own father's role as amateur historian for Derry, and It in particular. When he notes that Pennywise operates in thirty-year feeding cycles and that the worst tragedies in Derry have always coincided with one of these cycles, he summons each of his childhood friends with the same question: "Do you remember?" Reunited thirty years later, the adult Losers realize that their collective memory is only partial, that recollections of events fade over time as a child moves on to adulthood and forgetfulness. Pennywise uses this to intimidate Ricky Tozier (Harry Anderson) in the Derry library the day of his return: "Get out of town by sunset. You don't remember enough. You're too old."
IT (1990, made-for-TV). Tim Reid is the small town librarian who stays behind while all the others go off to become rich and famous. "IT" comes and makes all the books fly off the shelves in the library.
"It" also features a librarian, Mike Hanlon, in a critical role. Hanlon is the town librarian of Derry, Maine; he calls his old, widely scattered childhood friends back together some 30 years after the events that first brought them into the grip of terror in their struggles with the monstrous alien entity know as It. Hanlon also contributes an "unauthorized town history" of Derry, which appears in a number of interludes scattered through the novel. which appears in a number of interludes scattered through the novel.
As a child, Hanlon was one of the local "losers," in his case because he was black. Now, he notes, "On one level of my mind I was and am living with the most grotesque, capering horrors; on another I have continued to live the mundane life of a small-city librarian." He is the only one who hears the rumblings of It's awakening, for among his friends only he has remained in Derry, in the home ground of the evil embodied by It. Hanlon initiates the reunion of the old circle in the renewed battle against it. Hanlon acquits himself well, both as town historian and as a participant in the battle. In the occasional scenes in which Hanlon performs library work, he also acts like an actual librarian.
