Carrie (2002) (TV)
[Speaking about Carrie White]
Detective John Mulcahey: Was she a friend of yours?
Sue Snell: Carrie didn't have any friends.
Detective John Mulcahey: When I was in high school, even the biggest losers had a bird of a feather.
Sue Snell: She wasn't a loser. She just didn't belong.
Detective John Mulcahey: Why do you think that is?
Sue Snell: It's not brain surgery. We are talking about Carrie White.
Detective John Mulcahey: Maybe she didn't want to belong.
Sue Snell: Everybody wants to belong. Anyone who tells you they don't is lying. I think Carrie wanted it more than any of us.

Sue Snell: [watching Chris walk in] Has Chris said anything?
Helen Shyres: Only that she hates your guts.

Sue Snell: It wasn't your fault. It wasn't all your fault.
[pause]
Sue Snell: We shouldn't be here. People thinking you're dead is sort of contingent on nobody seeing you alive.
Carrie White: Where am I going to go?
Sue Snell: I don't know. Somewhere where they don't know you.
[pause]
Sue Snell: I'll drive you as far as Florida. Then I have to come back.

Carrie White: You're doing this because you feel sorry for me.
Sue Snell: This is not a pity thing. I don't feel sorry for you.
Carrie White: Yeah, you do. You feel sorry for me because you think you're better than me.
Sue Snell: I don't think I'm better than you.
Carrie White: It's okay. Everyone does. Doesn't mean it's true, though.

Detective John Mulcahey: Do you consider yourself anti-religious, Sue?
Sue Snell: No. I just think some people take it too far, that's all.
Detective John Mulcahey: And you disapprove?
Sue Snell: Look, I'm all for believing whatever it is that you want to believe; but you say "religion" and I'm thinking Da Vinci's "Last Supper". Jesus looks sad, the apostles look miserable - I don't want to go to their party. Shouldn't religion be more like "Dogs Playing Poker?"
Detective John Mulcahey: Dogs playing...?
Sue Snell: Poker. I can't tell you what any of the apostles are doing in "The Last Supper", but I can tell you that the little white bulldog is holding an ace under the table. See? That's fun. I'm engaged. There's awe and wonderment... That other stuff is just ritual and punishment, and it's way too weird and way too serious.

Detective John Mulcahey: You and Christine Hargenson, friends until the end?
Sue Snell: I wouldn't say that.
Detective John Mulcahey: What would you say?
Sue Snell: We had our differences.
Detective John Mulcahey: Differences about Carrie White?
Sue Snell: Differences about a lot of things. I played with Barbie, she played with horses. She's a back to front, I'm a front to back.


Carrie (2013)
Sue Snell: No! Carrie please don't hurt me.
Carrie White: Why not? I've been hurt my whole life.

[last lines]
Sue Snell: Carrie had some sort of power. But she was just like me... like any of you. She had hopes, she had fears, but we pushed her. And you can only push someone so far before they break.

Miss Desjardin: [the Ewin High School halls. We hear a bell ring, students and teachers walk through the halls, quiet chit-chat. Ms. Desjardin faces Tommy and Sue as she stands across fro them. She is angry yet she begging for an answer, from the two teens] Come on Sue, you and Chris are best friends if you 2, if you 3 are planning on playing a joke a lonely, defenseless girl...
Sue Snell: This has nothing to do with Chris, or you Ms.Desjardin, and for me-
[Tina Blake passes by them, all three of them notice her. She locks eyes with Sue, giving her the death stare. They know for sure, she WILL tell Chris about this]
Tommy Ross: Listen, due respect, Ms. Desjardin this is between Sue and Me, you know it's kinda like a private thing. A- And what is the big deal anyways, its just for one night, right? Famous athletes, like Tim Tebow, he- he takes kids to prom all the time and everyone loves him for it.
Miss Desjardin: [Ms. Desjardin looks at him, shes still angry and now annoyed, her face says, "are you serious right now? You cant b serious right?"] Really? Your hardly a famous athlete this is a really big deal for her.
Tommy Ross: I- I- I- *exhales deeply* Listen, it doesn't matter. She said no.
[Sue's eyes widen, she didn't know this. She steps up to him and looks into his eyes]
Sue Snell: So you'll try again.
Miss Desjardin: [Not a question] Don't!
Tommy Ross: [giving up to easily] Ok.
Sue Snell: [Sue is begging and pleading, she really wants for him to take her] Its not ok.
Miss Desjardin: Tommy.
[She steps up closer to Tommy]
Miss Desjardin: When you show up to prom with Carrie White on your arm, don't you think you're gonna look the tinniest bit ridiculous?
Sue Snell: [Steps up in front of Tommy] We don't care how we look?
[to Tommy]
Sue Snell: Do we?
Tommy Ross: [the second bell rings] No.
Sue Snell: [Sue grabs Tommy's arm arm and the two begin to walk they don't wanna be late for class] Come on
[They walk right by Ms. Desjardin, she turns to watch them, shes not happy but she can't do anything]

Sue Snell: [Sue walks in, she sees Carrie and Margret on the floor. She is upset and nervous] Carrie.
[Carrie turns to her]
Sue Snell: Let me help you Carrie.
Carrie White: [Carrie is crying, she looks down at Margret and back to Sue] Why couldn't you leave me alone?
Sue Snell: [Sincerely upset] I'm sorry.
Carrie White: [Carrie looks down at Margret and back at Sue. She Flexes. Upset and gentle] Look what you turned me into.
Sue Snell: [Sue's throat is tight, she's gasping to make words] Don't hurt me Carrie.
Carrie White: [a sadistic smile on her face, she says, gently and in one breath] Why Not?
[the smile slowly fades]
Carrie White: I've been hurt my whole life.
[Carrie releases her grip on Sue's throat. She lifts up Margret and starts to make her way towards Sue. There is rumbling sounds through the house]
Carrie White: [Gentle and Crying] I- I killed my mom. I want her back. I'm- I'm sc- I'm scared.
[She looks at Margret and Sue between lines, and lets out one of those crying chuckles]
Carrie White: [Sue is shocked and upset. This is traumatizing. Rocks start falling through the house, Carrie looks up and then back at Sue. The force is to strong, Carrie falls to her knees. Sue drops to for no reason]
[Sue gets back up. If they stay here longer, they will be dead. She can't just leave Carrie behind, what type of person does that. Carrie is cradling Margret's dead body from the rocks, as Sue runs over to her]
Sue Snell: [Yelling over the noise] We gotta get out of here. Give me your hand. Give me your hand. Come on.
[Carrie's mouth drops, she puts her hand to Sues belly and hears a heartbeat. She didn't know Sue was pregnant, neither did Sue. Carrie smiles]
Carrie White: [Gently and Happy] Its a girl.
Carrie White: [Confused] What?
Carrie White: [Confused and Gentle] You don't know?
Sue Snell: [Shocked] Oh my God!
[Carrie is still upset, she wont leave Momma, but Sue won't leave without her, and if Carrie let that baby die she'd hate herself. Carrie Flexes. Sue rises up from the ground]
Carrie White: [Crying, Upset, and Angry] Get Out! Get out!
[Sue goes flying out the house and gently lands at the end of the front lawn, near the street]


Carrie (1976)
Chris Hargenson: She can't get away with this. I'm gonna get her.
Sue Snell: Let it go, Chris.
Chris Hargenson: Like Hell, I will!

Miss Collins: The period's not up, Hargenson.
Chris Hargenson: It is for me.
Miss Collins: [to the other girls] Keep running!
[to Chris]
Miss Collins: Well, there are ten minutes left.
Chris Hargenson: Stick 'em up your...
[Miss Collins slaps her]
Chris Hargenson: You can't hit us! You'll get canned for this, you bitch!
Miss Collins: One more word out of you, and I'm gonna knock you down! Do you understand me?
Chris Hargenson: She can't get away with this if we all stick together! Norma? Helen? Sue!
Sue Snell: Shut up, Chris. Just shut up.
Chris Hargenson: This isn't over. This isn't over by a long shot!
Miss Collins: You're out of the prom, Hargenson.
[she turns to the other girls]
Miss Collins: Okay, the show's over. In place! Run! One, two! One, two! One, two!

Tommy Ross: What is the big deal?
Miss Collins: Because it is a very big deal for Carrie White, and you know it!
Tommy Ross: Well, she already said no, anyway.
Sue Snell: Yeah, well, with a little effort, you can change that.
Tommy Ross: Don't count your chickens.
Miss Collins: Just don't try!
Tommy Ross: Fine. I won't try.
Sue Snell: Hey, wait a second! It's not fine! You can't order someone not to take someone to the prom.
Miss Collins: Well, you know, I can make sure that you don't hurt Carrie White anymore.
Sue Snell: We're not trying to hurt her, Miss Collins. We're trying to help her!
Miss Collins: How? Hey, Tommy. Um, don't you think you're just gonna look a little ridiculous when you walk in the prom with Carrie White?
Sue Snell: We don't care how we look. Do we?
Tommy Ross: Well...


The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)
Sue Snell: I had a traumatic experience in high school. I tried to help someone, and it backfired horribly.

Sue Snell: You've heard of Carrie White, haven't you?
Rachel Lang: Supposedly, she set the fire as some sort of revenge-suicide thing, Elvis was her date and they escaped in a UFO.
