  • It's because they both have a give called "The Shining," which means they can communicate with just their minds.
  • Danny says that Tony has told him he's not supposed to talk about it.

  • Then when he wakes up, he can't quite remember everything.
  • Hallorann wants to know if Tony has ever told Danny anything about the Overlook Hotel.
  • But Danny asks if Hallorann is scared of the hotel and Hallorann says no. He says that the hotel just has a "shining" like some people do.
