Flashback: Edward Saksehånd

I guess it would have to start with scissors.
-- Scissors?
Well, there are all kinds of scissors. And once there was even a man who had scissors for hands.
-- A man?
Yes
-- Hands? Scissors?
No, scissorhands. You know that mansion on top of the mountain? Well, a long time ago, an inventor lived in that mansion. He made many things I suppose. He even created a man. He gave him insides, a heart, a brain, everything…well, almost everything. You see, the inventor was very old. He died before he got to finish the man he created. So the man was left by himself, incomplete and all alone.
-- He didn’t have a name?
Of course he had a name. His name was Edward.
