Polanski came back a little over two weeks later, after a trip to New York. Again, he and Samantha drove off in the late afternoon.
"When was the next time that you heard from Samantha?" Gunson asked.
"I had a phone call at about 6 o'clock," she began, and then paused to backtrack. "Before she went, she had indicated to me that she didn't like him. . . ."
Gunson cut her off. "May that be stricken from the record?"
"OK," she continued. "I asked her if she was OK. And she said, 'Uh-huh.' . . . . And I said, 'Do you want me to pick you up?' And she said, 'No.' And then Polanski got on the phone and he said they were at Jack Nicholson's house, and the sun went down so fast that they didn't get very many pictures, and there was artificial light there, and a Jacuzzi there, and that they were going to take some pictures there. . . .
"I thought, why a Jacuzzi? But I didn't say anything. I mean I just didn't. "
When Samantha returned some time after 8, she rushed to tell her mom something before Polanski walked in.
"She was kind of weird-looking. . . . I said, 'What's the matter?' because I thought something was really wrong. And she said, 'I told him I had asthma because I didn't want to get in the Jacuzzi. I just wanted you to know that.' "
Her daughter went to her bedroom to change as Polanski walked in.
"What did he say?" Gunson asked.
"Asked me about her asthma. . . . And I said, 'Yeah it's really too bad.' And then he said, 'What kind of medicine does she take for that?' And I said, 'Oh, lot of different kinds,' just fumbling around. . . ."
Gailey asked to see some of the photos from the previous shoot. Polanski brought a slide viewer from the car.
She, her boyfriend, and her 20-year-old daughter, Kim, gathered around to see.
"We looked at about five or six that were just head shots," she said. "And then all of the sudden there was a shot of Samantha bare to her waist with just her jeans on. And Kim stepped back. And I stepped back. And the dog peed on the floor, and Kim went for the dog and threw her out. . . . It must have been some kind of energy thing happening because she never does that.
"And then I just sat there and thought, 'Well, but I don't want to make a scene. . . . So I am going to . . . be calm for minute. . . .' I decided not to say anything so that Samantha would not feel like she did an awful thing and cause a big scene. I thought I would wait and get him out of the house. . . .
"He made a phone call, and then he gave Kim a lecture about how she shouldn't have disciplined the dog like that. And then he left."
Kim testified that later that night Samantha's boyfriend Steve came over and she heard the two of them talking about what had happened. Kim told her mother, who called the police.
