Carol Anne: Can I take my goldfish to school?

Dr. Lesh: Some people believe that when people die, there's a wonderful light, As bright as the sun. But it doesn't hurt to look into it. All the answers to all the questions that you ever want to know are inside that light. And when you walk to it, you become a part of it forever. And then, some people die but they don't know that they've gone.
Robbie: They think they're still alive?
Dr. Lesh: Yes. Maybe they didn't want to die. Maybe they weren't ready. Maybe they hadn't lived fully yet or they'd lived a long, long time and they still wanted more life. They resist going into that light, however hard the light wants them. They just... hang around. Watch TV, watch their friends grow up feeling unhappy and jealous and those feelings are bad. They hurt. And then, some people just get lost on the way to the light, and they need someone to guide them to it.
Robbie: So some people get angry and throw things around - like in my bedroom?
Dr. Lesh: Yes. Just like in school. Like some kids are nice to you, some kids are mean.
Robbie: I got beat up once by three kids. They took my lunch money. Maybe they got hit by a truck and they're upstairs right now!

Eric Bowen: Yes, ma'am. Really?
Amy Bowen: Yes.
Eric Bowen: Wow.
Amy Bowen: Take if off.
Eric Bowen: Alright.
Griffin Bowen: [Eric's pants are down just when his kid enters the room] Dad?
Eric Bowen: Yes?
Amy Bowen: Aaah!
Eric Bowen: Hey... What's up buddy?

Boyd: Let me ask you something. Your dad... he's been out of work a while, right?
Griffin Bowen: Yeah, I guess.
Boyd: Hmm. That's okay. Nobody's perfect. I was just thinking about it. You know if he really wanted to make some money quick... a poltergeist abduction isn't a bad idea. Even if it turned out to be a fake. You go public with it, do some TV appearances. You get your own reality show. How cool would that be?
Griffin Bowen: We don't want a reality show. We just want Maddy back.
Boyd: You're good, kid. Very good.
