The Ring (2002)
Aidan Keller: What happened to the girl?
Rachel Keller: Samara?
Aidan Keller: Is that her name?
Rachel Keller: Mm-hmm.
Aidan Keller: Is she still in the dark place?
Rachel Keller: No. We set her free.
Aidan Keller: You helped her?
Rachel Keller: Yeah.
Aidan Keller: Why did you do that?
Rachel Keller: What's wrong, honey?
Aidan Keller: You weren't supposed to help her.

Rachel Keller: I think before you die, you see the ring...

Rachel Keller: Honey, the house you drew for me...
Aidan Keller: Uh huh.
Rachel Keller: Where did you see it? Did you see it in your head? Is that why you drew it?
Aidan Keller: In my head?
Rachel Keller: Aidan, why did you draw that house?
Aidan Keller: 'Cause she told me to.
Rachel Keller: Who? Who told you to?
Aidan Keller: The little girl.
Rachel Keller: She talks to you?
Aidan Keller: No, she shows me things.
Rachel Keller: Did she show you the horses?
Aidan Keller: She doesn't like it in the barn. The horses keep her up at night.
Rachel Keller: So she still lives there?
Aidan Keller: No, she lives in a dark place now.

Rachel Keller: He watched the tape.
Noah: Who? who watched it?
Rachel Keller: Our son.

Innkeeper: This is your card, right?
Rachel Keller: That's it.

Rachel Keller: Katie told you she was going to die?
Aidan Keller: She said she didn't have enough time.

Rachel Keller: Would you say that I'm gullible?
Noah: No.
Rachel Keller: Easily rattled?
Noah: Definitely not. I mean, you're a little highly-strung maybe.
[gesturing to her clothes]
Noah: Not much of a dresser.

Noah: I can't imagine being stuck down a well all alone like that. How long could you survive?
Rachel Keller: Seven days.

Harvey: You're fired.
Rachel Keller: No, I'm not.
Harvey: Yes, you are.
Rachel Keller: No, I'm not! I'm cooking too good a story.

Rachel Keller: She wanted that child more than anything in the world. How could she have done that...? She just wanted to be heard. Sometimes children yell, or cry... or draw pictures...

Rachel Keller: What did you do to her? She was your daughter! You killed Samara, didn't you? You killed her and when your wife found out...
Richard Morgan: My wife was not supposed to have a child!

Dr. Grasnik: See, when you live on an island you catch a cold, it's everybody's cold.
Rachel Keller: No offense, ma'am, but what the hell does that mean?
Dr. Grasnik: It means ever since that girl's been gone, things have been better.

Rachel Keller: Four people are dead.
Noah: Not from watching a videotape.

Rachel Keller: So, what was on this tape?
Kellen, Male Teen #1: Well, I haven't seen it, obviously.

Rachel Keller: I'll take cabin 12

Rachel Keller: [Referring to Samara] Was there anything wrong with her?
Dr. Grasnik: You mean... medically?
Rachel Keller: I mean whatever you mean.
Dr. Grasnik: [Looks at her grandson] When Darby there was born... we knew something wasn't right with him, but we loved him anyways.
[Referring to The Morgans]
Dr. Grasnik: It takes work you know... some people have limits.

Teacher: Yes, I know, but these pictures...
Rachel Keller: Are Aidan's way of working it out. He'll be okay.
Teacher: [referring to Katie] You said that she died 3 days ago?
Rachel Keller: Yes.
Teacher: Aidan drew these last week.

Rachel Keller: Come on, we shouldn't be in her room.
Aidan Keller: It isn't her room anymore.

Dr. Grasnik: She wanted a child more than anything, poor Anna. They tried hard for years, but sometimes it's just not meant to be. Then one winter they went away, when they came back it was with Samara, adopted they said, never said from where; said the mother died of complications. But they had their baby, they had their horses, everything was fine, until Anna started coming to see me. Said she was suffering visions, seeing things, horrible things, like they'd been burned inside her. And it only happened around Samara, like the girl put them there.
Rachel Keller: Were you Samara's doctor too?
Rachel Keller: Was there anything wrong with her?
Dr. Grasnik: You mean medically?
Rachel Keller: I mean whatever you mean.

Noah: [Referring to the tape] Look I'm sorry but I'm not gonna get all hung up on some high schooled rumor.
[Rachel gives him a weird look]
Noah: What are you thinking?
Rachel Keller: I'm thinking this is the part where I tell you that you're a slug who never finishes anything and then you say I'm an obsessive bitch. Then I storm out all pissed off, kicking myself for ever thinking that you could just GROW UP!

Rachel Keller: Hey Noah, can you pretend for a second that I don't read "Video Geek Magazine"?
Noah: Okay, when you record a tape, the makeup on the track is like a signature for whatever did the recording like a VCR, camcorder, or whatever, so the control track can tell us where it came from. But to not have one, I mean that's like being born without finger prints.
Rachel Keller: Then how did this get recorded?
Noah: I don't know.

Aidan Keller: We don't have enough time.
Rachel Keller: Oh, honey, I know I've been working a lot and I'm sorry. But I promise you, I'm going to make it up to you.
Aidan Keller: I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about time before we die.
Rachel Keller: You have lots of time.
Aidan Keller: So, you know when I'm going to die?
Rachel Keller: No, no one does. But I know you don't have to worry about it.


The Ring Two (2005)
Evil Samara: Mommy!
Rachel Keller: I'm not your fucking mommy!
[Rachel pushes the lid of the well shut, trapping Samara]

Rachel Keller: Whenever you feel alone, you just call my name. I'll follow the sound of your voice.

Max Rourke: You know how I can tell you used to work at a real newspaper?
Rachel Keller: Why is that?
Max Rourke: Because you're the only one who keeps her office door closed.

Rachel Keller: [to Samara] You can't have my son!

Rachel Keller: Honey, tell me, what happened in your dream?
Aidan Keller: I don't remember.

Evelyn: It was you! You did it!
Rachel Keller: What did I do?
Evelyn: You let the dead get in.

Rachel Keller: It's always open... Her only way out is always open.

Rachel Keller: What kind of doctor did you say you were?
Dr. Emma Temple: I'm a psychiatrist, yeah.

Aidan Keller: Let's watch some TV together.
Rachel Keller: It's kind of late, Honey. Don't you think you should sleep?
Aidan Keller: I never sleep.
Rachel Keller: Then let Mommy make you something.

[last lines]
Rachel Keller: Promise me something?
Aidan Keller: Yeah. Anything, mom. Anything.
Rachel Keller: Just call me Rachel. At least for a while.

Aidan Keller: Mommy, I love you!
Rachel Keller: I love you too, honey, but you're not my son.

Rachel Keller: All I ever tried to do for him was the right thing. It only ever made things worse.
Max Rourke: Then it wasn't the right thing, was it?

Rachel Keller: What's wrong? It's just water.


Ringu (1998)
Yoichi Asakawa: You know what, Mother?
Reiko Asakawa: Yes?
Yoichi Asakawa: Tomo-chan watched the cursed video!

Reiko Asakawa: So that video is...
Ryuji Takayama: It's not of this world. It's Sadako's fury. And she's put a curse on us.

Reiko Asakawa: Take my photo...
[hands Ryuji a Polaroid camera]
Ryuji Takayama: Look at me.
Reiko Asakawa: Hurry up!
[Ryuji takes the picture and looks at it. The picture of Reiko's face is blurred]

Reiko Asakawa: Four people died from watching this videotape!
Ryuji Takayama: [laughing] Then go to the shrine and get exorcized!

[on the ship to Oshima Island]
Reiko Asakawa: How did the rumours about the video even start in the first place?
Ryuji Takayama: This kind of thing... it doesn't start by one person telling a story. It's more like everyone's fear just takes on a life of its own.
Reiko Asakawa: Fear...
Ryuji Takayama: Or maybe it isn't our fear, maybe it's what we secretly hope is true.

Reiko Asakawa: Ryuji? When it's time for me to die... Stay with me.

[Reiko grabs Ryuji's arm]
Reiko Asakawa: Please. Please, it might help you find a way out. If you figure it out, look after Yoichi ...
Ryuji Takayama: Stop it! Have you forgotten there was a girl with Tomoko when she died? That girl's now in a mental institution. Who knows what could happen to be.
Reiko Asakawa: But you could stay with me, Ryuji! You'd be fine!
Ryuji Takayama: Why? Because I'm already insane?

Reiko Asakawa: It's strange, but I feel peaceful.
[Ryuji rubs her hand soothingly where the bruise Sadako gave her is]

Ryuji Takayama: Let's find Sadako's body!
Reiko Asakawa: If we do that it'll lift the curse? Will it save Yoichi?
Ryuji Takayama: It's all we have left to do.
Reiko Asakawa: [whispering] Just one more day...

[on Yoichi]
Ryuji Takayama: Why not just let things run its course, are our lives really worth saving? Why don't we let our line die out? Good idea! Yoichi was a mistake, anyway.
Reiko Asakawa: Stop it!

Ryuji Takayama: Is Yoichi okay alone at this hour?
Reiko Asakawa: [sadly] He's used to it.


Ringu 2 (1999)
[Reiko's blood is spilling out over the road. It runs towards Yoichi like it's trying to reach for him. Yoichi watches solemnly]
Reiko Asakawa: Yoichi... Yoichi...


Ring (1999)
Sun-ju: You have given birth to something haven't you?
