Halloween (1978)
Laurie: Lynda, if this is a joke, I'll kill you!

Annie Brackett: [Michael Myers' car cruises by the girls walking home from school] Hey, jerk! Speed kills!
[the car screeches to a halt]
Annie Brackett: God, can't he take a joke?
Laurie: You know Annie some day you're going to get us all in deep trouble.
Lynda: Totally.
Annie Brackett: I HATE a guy with a car and no sense of humor.

Annie Brackett: Still spooked?
Laurie: I wasn't spooked.
Annie Brackett: LIES!
Laurie: I wasn't! I saw someone standing in Mr. Riddle's back yard.
Annie Brackett: Probably Mr. Riddle!
Laurie: He was watching me.
Annie Brackett: Mr. Riddle was watching you? Laurie, Mr. Riddle is eighty-seven!
Laurie: He can still watch.
Annie Brackett: That's probably all he can do!

Lynda: It's totally insane. We have three new cheers to learn in the morning, the game is in the afternoon, I have to get my hair done at five, and the dance is at eight! I'll be totally wiped out!
Laurie: [sarcastically] I don't think you have enough to do tomorrow.
Lynda: Totally!

Tommy Doyle: Laurie, what's the boogeyman?
Laurie: There's no such thing.

Lynda: [concerning Annie] The only reason she baby sits is to have a place for...
Laurie: [realizing she had forgot something] Shit.
Annie Brackett: I have a place for *that*!
Laurie: I forgot my chemistry book.
Lynda: So who cares? I always forget my chemistry book and my math book, and my English book, and my, let's see, my French book, and... well who needs books anyway, I don't need books, I always forget all my books, I mean, it doesn't really matter if you have your books or not... hey isn't that Devon Graham?

[the Shape is lurking by a bush on the sidewalk]
Laurie: Annie, look!
Annie Brackett: Look where? I don't see anything.
Laurie: That guy who passed us in the car before, the one you yelled at!
Annie Brackett: Subtle, isn't he?
[marches over to the bush]
Annie Brackett: Hey, creep!
[pauses]
Annie Brackett: Laurie, dear. He wants to talk to you. He wants to take you out tonight.
Laurie: [seeing there's nobody there] He was standing right there.
Annie Brackett: Poor Laurie! Scared another one away. It's tragic, you NEVER go out. You must have a small fortune stashed away from babysitting so much.
Laurie: Guys thinks I'm too smart.
Annie Brackett: I don't, I think you're wacko. Now you're seeing men behind bushes!

Lynda: So Annie, are we still on for tonight?
Annie Brackett: I wouldn't want to get you in deep trouble, Lynda!
Lynda: Oh come on Annie! Bob and I have been planning it for weeks.
Annie Brackett: All right, the Wallaces leave at seven.
Laurie: I'm babysitting the Doyles, it's two houses down. We can keep each other company!
Annie Brackett: Oh terrific, I've got three choices: Watch the kid sleep, listen to Lynda screw around or talk to you!

Tommy Doyle: I don't like that story anymore.
Laurie: I thought King Arthur was your favorite.
Tommy Doyle: Not anymore.
[takes a stack of comics from under the couch]
Laurie: Why do you keep them under there?
Tommy Doyle: Mom doesn't like me having them.
Laurie: Laser Man. Neutron Man, I can understand why. Tarantula Man
Tommy Doyle: Laurie, what's the Boogey Man?

Lindsey Wallace: I'm scared!
Laurie: There's nothing to be scared of.
Tommy Doyle: Are you sure?
[Laurie nods]
Tommy Doyle: How?
Laurie: I killed him...
Tommy Doyle: [shouts] But you can't kill the boogie man!

Tommy Doyle: But I saw the boogeyman! I saw him!
Laurie: Okay, what did he look like?
Tommy Doyle: Ummm...
[pauses and thinks]
Tommy Doyle: the boogeyman!

Laurie: [to herself, watching kids trick-or-treating] Well, kiddo, I thought you outgrew superstition.

[last lines]
Laurie: It was the boogeyman...
Dr. Sam Loomis: As a matter of fact, it was.

Laurie: [sees Annie wearing a shirt because her clothes are in the laundry] Oh, fancy!
Annie Brackett: This has not been my night. I spilled butter all over my clothes, they're in the wash. I got stuck in the laundry room...
Laurie: Listen, I want you to call Ben Traemer and tell him you were just fooling around.
Annie Brackett: I can't.
Laurie: Yes, you can.
Annie Brackett: No, I can't. He went drinking with Mike Godfrey and won't be home until late. You'll have to call him tomorrow. Besides, I'm on my way to pick up Paul.
Laurie: Wait a minute...
Annie Brackett: If you watch her, I'll consider talking to Ben Traemer in the morning. Deal?
Laurie: Deal.
Laurie: [to herself after Annie leaves] The old Girl Scout comes through again.

Laurie: [in the Wallace house, and noises are coming from upstairs] All right you meatheads, joke's over.
[silence]
Laurie: Come on, Annie. That's enough.
[more silence]
Laurie: It's most definitely stopped being funny, now cut it out! You'll be sorry.

Tommy Doyle: What about the jack-o-lantern?
Laurie: After the movie.
Tommy Doyle: What about my comics?
Laurie: After the jack-o-lantern.
Tommy Doyle: What about the boogey man?
Laurie: There's no such thing.

Tommy Doyle: [screaming hysterically] It's the boogeyman! The boogeyman's outside!
Laurie: Oh Tommy, stop it! You're scaring Lindsey. There's nobody out there, now if you don't stop this I'm going to have to turn the TV off and send you to bed.
Tommy Doyle: Nobody believes me!
Lindsey Wallace: I believe you, Tommy.

Laurie: [Tommy's scared of the boogeyman] We're getting nowhere. Look, the boogeyman can only come out on Halloween right? Well I'm here, I'm not about to let anything happen to you.
Tommy Doyle: Promise?
Laurie: Promise.

Laurie: Sleep tight kids.

Laurie: Tommy unlock the door! Come here, now you listen to me. I want you to go down the stairs, and out the front door. I want you to go down the street to the Mackenzie's house. I want you to tell them to call the police and tell them to send them over here. Now do you understand me? Go do as I say!


Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998)
Laurie Strode: How about you? Are you tired of my bullshit?
Will Brennan: I'm a counselor; I'm attracted to it.

Will Brennan: What should I do?
Laurie Strode: Try to live.

Laurie Strode: My brother killed my sister.
Will Brennan: How did he do that?
Laurie Strode: With a really big, sharp kitchen knife.

Norma Watson: Oh. Miss Tate. I didn't mean to make you jump. It's Halloween. I guess everyone's entitled to one good scare.
Laurie Strode: I've had my share.

Laurie Strode: Okay, John. I know that you get your smart mouth from my side of the family, so I'll cut you a break.

Laurie Strode: My name's not Keri Tate.
Will Brennan: Oooh, what is it?
Laurie Strode: Laurie Strode.
Will Brennan: [laughs] Strode?

[Laurie, Will and the kids have just survived from Michael]
Will Brennan: Who was that?
Laurie Strode: My brother.

Laurie Strode: [it's just her and Michael left at the school] MICHAEEEEL!

Laurie Strode: I'm not who you think I am.
Will Brennan: Okay. Who are you?
Laurie Strode: My name's not Kerri Tate.
Will Brennan: Oooh. What is it?
Laurie Strode: Laurie Strode.
Will Brennan: Strode?
Laurie Strode: Strode. I changed my name when I went into hiding.
Will Brennan: Oh, I like that. That's like... like... like the Witness Protection Program. What did you, like, rat out the mob, or something?
Laurie Strode: My brother killed my sister... when she was 17.
Will Brennan: Well, that's... suck-y. How'd he do that?
Laurie Strode: With a really big, sharp kitchen knife.
Will Brennan: That's terrible. Take off your clothes.
Laurie Strode: You said you'd listen.
Will Brennan: Okay.
Laurie Strode: They locked him up for a long time, but he got out and... he came after me. But I got away. But he killed a lot of my friends. It happened -...
Laurie Strode, Will Brennan: - -On Halloween.
Laurie Strode: You've heard the story.
Will Brennan: Who hasn't? Michael Myers. It's like 20 years ago, right?
Laurie Strode: 1978.
Will Brennan: And the girl that... What happened to the sister? She died, right?
Laurie Strode: No. She faked her death... and, now, she's the head mistress of a very posh, secluded private school in Northern California.
Will Brennan: What?
Laurie Strode: Hoping and praying every year... that her brother won't find her.
Will Brennan: You're telling me the truth?
Laurie Strode: Now, do you want a drink?

John: [His mother won't let him go away on an overnight school camping trip] Dad would let me go.
Laurie Strode: Well, *Dad* is an abusive, chain smoking, methadone addict.
John: Who would attract someone like that?
Laurie Strode: Ouch.
John: And to think *he* left *you*!
Laurie Strode: John! I know you get your smart mouth from my side of the family. But point check, you're going too far!


Halloween (2007)
Tommy Doyle: I heard that on Halloween night, the boogeyman comes out at night and attacks kids.
Laurie Strode: He likes to eat little boys like you.

Laurie Strode: [crying] Was that the boogeyman?
Dr. Samuel Loomis: As a matter of fact... I do believe it was.

Laurie Strode: [after talking to Annie on the phone] Guess what, Tommy.
Tommy Doyle: What?
Laurie Strode: Lindsay Wallace is coming over!
Tommy Doyle: What? She can't come over here! What if the guys see her?
Laurie Strode: So?
Tommy Doyle: 1: She's a girl. 2: She's not a boy. And 3: She smells like you.
Laurie Strode: This is going to be a long night.
Tommy Doyle: ...for the both of us.

Laurie Strode: [screaming and grabbing Tommy] IT'S THE BOOGEYMAN!

[Falls to her death]

Laurie Strode: Are you afraid of me, Michael?

Laurie Strode: I knew you'd come for me sooner or later. What took you so long?

[first lines]
Laurie Strode: You've heard of the tunnel. The one we all go through sooner or later. At the end, there's a door. And waiting for you on the other side of that door is either Heaven or Hell. This that door.
