- ― Bailey to Dean sexually teasing him as foreplay for a failed act
Bailey was a supporting character in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre film series. She's part of the continuity of the remake series and appeared in the 2006 prequel film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.
She was the Hewitt's family second ever female victim and first female victim forced to live throughout the madness and macabre of the Hewitt residence.
Bailey is portrayed by actress Diora Baird.
Unlike the more machismo, confidant Eric, Dean had no desire to go to another country to kill people. Bailey convinced him that he should burn his draft card and the two could run away together.
They traveled with Eric and his girlfriend Chrissie across Texas on their way to the recruiting station. They stopped at a motel where Bailey and Dean had sex.
She tried enticing him with various bondage techniques, but Dean's mind was preoccupied with the notion of lying and ultimately disappointing his brother.
As they continued traveling in Eric's jeep, a group of bikers pulled up behind them and began terrorizing them. They eventually got away from the bikers and stopped at the Cele Community Center in Fuller to get some gas.
While the men were outside, Bailey and Chrissie went into the store. She told Chrissie about Dean's intent to not go to Vietnam, and Chrissie encouraged them to do whatever they felt was best.
After they left, they were once again harassed by the bikers. This altercation however, resulted in the jeep being overturned after Eric accidentally hit a cow. Bailey was injured in the crash, but what came after proved to be far worse.
The town's sheriff was actually a man named Charlie Hewitt who had operated under the alias Sheriff Hoyt. He pulled Eric, Dean and Bailey from the overturned vehicle (Chrissie had been throw clear of the jeep during the crash).
He brought them all back to the Hewitt residence, where each of them were tortured at length by the murderous cannibal family. Bailey was bound to the leg from the kitchen table and forced to watch as other members of the household conducted their bizarre festivities.
The Hewitt family matriarch, Luda May dressed Bailey's wounds and tried to clean her up. She told her that they were expecting company for dinner, and people should always look nice for company.
That evening, the Hewitts hosted their dinner. Bailey was seated at the table next to Dean, who had been rendered unconscious.
Chrissie was bound to a chair at the other end of the table. Eric, by this point, had already been tortured and killed. Bailey was in a severe state of shock by this point and unaware of her surroundings.
Chrissie screamed when Charlie showed her how all of Bailey's teeth had been removed. The enormous Thomas Hewitt, also known as Leatherface, came up behind her and slit her throat with a knife.
When Dean came to, her was stricken to see his girlfriend's dead eyes staring at him as blood pooled beneath her head.
