Final Destination 2 (2003)
William Bludworth: Hello, Clear. I've been expecting you.

William Bludworth: Come to pick my brain?
Clear Rivers: Just a simple question and we'll leave you alone with your new friend.

Clear Rivers: Look, we drove a long way to get here, so if you happen to know how to stop Death, it would be really great if you told us.
William Bludworth: You can't cheat Death. There are no escapes.
Clear Rivers: Bullshit! You told me Death has a distinct design. But Alex and I cheated Death, not once but dozens of times. The design is flawed, it can be beaten.
William Bludworth: Such fire in you now. People are always most alive just before they die. Don't you think?
[rips off Evan's nipple piercing with a pair of pliers and begins to whistle as he cremates Evan's body]

Kimberly Corman: Look, please... if you know of anything that could help us, what harm could it do?
William Bludworth: Only new life can defeat Death.
Burke: What the hell does that mean?
William Bludworth: Some people say there's a balance to everything. For every life there's a death, for every death, there is a life. But the introduction of life that was not meant to be, that can invalidate the list, force Death to start anew. You have to follow the signs... Kimberly.
Kimberly Corman: How do you know my name?

William Bludworth: [whispering] Kimberly.

William Bludworth: Dead, yet still fresh.


Final Destination (2000)
Bludworth: In death there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps, and no escapes.

Bludworth: By walking off the plane you cheated death. You have to figure out when it's coming back at you.

Bludworth: I'll see you soon.

Bludworth: [to Alex] You already did that by walking off the plane. Now you gotta out when and how it'll come back at you. Play your hunch, Alex. If you think you can get away from it. But beware the risk of cheating the plan, disrespecting the design... could initiate a horrifying fury that would terrorize even the Grim Reaper - and you don't even want to fuck with that MacDaddy.

Bludworth: You have to realize is that we're just a mouse that a cat has by the tail, every single move we make from the mundane to the monumental, the red light that we stop at or run, the people we have sex with or want with us, the airplanes that we ride or walk out of, it's all part of deaths sadistic design. Leading to the grave.


Final Destination 5 (2011)
[last lines]
William Bludworth: You all just be careful now.

William Bludworth: Death... doesn't like to be cheated.

Sam: You warned us. At the memorial service. You said death didn't like to be cheated.
William Bludworth: It's just that I've seen this before.
Nathan: You've seen what?
William Bludworth: A lucky few survive a disaster. And then one by one... death comes for them all. You changed things on that bridge. There's a wrinkle in reality. And that wrinkle is you.
Nathan: So what, we're doomed to die? I mean is - is that it? We just got our lives back, so what kind of fucked up karma's that?
Sam: Are you saying we can't stop this?
William Bludworth: You were supposed to die on that bridge. You're not supposed to be here. You shorted death. So you let death have somebody else in your place, and you take their spot in the realm of the living. All the days and years that they have yet to live. And they take *your* place in death. Then the books are balanced.
Peter Friedkin: Wait a minute. We kill someone, we get their life? Is that what you're telling me?
William Bludworth: I don't make the rules. I just clean up... after the game is over.
