30 Days of Night (2007)
The Stranger: Mr. and Mrs. Sheriff. So sweet. So helpless against what is coming.
Stella Oleson: He's just trying to freak us out.
Jake Oleson: It's working.
Sheriff Eben Oleson: We have more important things to think about. I'll check on Gus.
The Stranger: Check on Gus. Board the windows. Try to hide. They're coming. This time they're gonna take me with them... honor me. Yeah. For all that I have done.
Sheriff Eben Oleson: They? Who are they?

Sheriff Eben Oleson: Hell of a day.
The Stranger: Just you wait.

The Stranger: No whiskey. No rum.
Lucy Ikos: Alcohol's illegal this month. Folks have hard enough time in the dark without booze making it worse.
The Stranger: Well forget about... the liquor, Lucy. Just bring me a bowl of raw hamburger.
Lucy Ikos: You can only get meat two ways around here - frozen or burned.
[the Stranger grabs Lucy's hand]
The Stranger: You don't bring me what I want to eat. What I want to drink.
Sheriff Eben Oleson: That's enough, pal. Leave the lady be.
[the Stranger releases Lucy, and Eben sits down next to him at the counter]
Sheriff Eben Oleson: Hey, what do you say the two of us go outside and have a little talk, huh?
The Stranger: Now what's wrong with a man who wants a little fresh meat?

The Stranger: [upset] They didn't take me!

Sheriff Eben Oleson: All right, time to talk. Who are you here with? Who are you here with?
[the Stranger whimpers in pain]
Sheriff Eben Oleson: Who did that to Gus?
The Stranger: You're a dead man.
Sheriff Eben Oleson: Where are they?
The Stranger: [while foaming at the mouth] I don't talk to dead men. I don't talk to dead men!
Sheriff Eben Oleson: Well, if I'm dead no one lets you loose from here.
The Stranger: You're all dead!

[first lines]
Sheriff Eben Oleson: Strange.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: I can smell your blood.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: Yeah, it worked. But they're gonna cut off the power, so...
[the power suddenly goes out]

[last lines]
Stella Oleson: What did you do to yourself?
Sheriff Eben Oleson: What I had to. Should I go after them?

Stella Oleson: Eben... the dawn...

Stella Oleson: I should have fought harder, kept Wilson here.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: [upon finding Beau working on his truck] Got a problem?
Beau Brower: Nothing I can't handle my own fucking self.
[Eben sees oil leaking from his truck]
Sheriff Eben Oleson: This for generators?
Beau Brower: Yeah. Yeah, mostly.
Sheriff Eben Oleson: Well, Beau, I'm going to have to cite you for it. I can't have it leaking all over the street.
Beau Brower: What? For that? You don't... you don't have to cite me. You don't have to do anything. Isn't that why we live out here? You know, for a little freedom?
Sheriff Eben Oleson: [handing Beau the citation] Happy motoring.

Deputy Billy Kitka: You know, Beau's not so bad. Why'd you bother writing him up?
Sheriff Eben Oleson: He lives all alone out there on the south ridge. A little citation now and then lets him know he's a part of this town.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: [upon seeing pictures of Carter's family] Can't your wife bring you up a sweater or two? Or bring the whole tribe up while she's at it?
Carter Davies: They'll come when they're ready, I guess.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: [to the Stranger] Let me tell you what I got. You don't work at the refinery. You didn't fly in; somebody'd seen you. And you're definitely not from around here. How'd you get in?
[the Stranger remains silent]
Sheriff Eben Oleson: All right. Well, we got a long time to figure this out. Nobody's coming for you for a month.
[the Stranger smiles]

Sheriff Eben Oleson: Now I know why you wanted to go live with grandma.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: We'll sleep in shifts. We'll ration our food, and then we'll figure out the next step. We have two advantages - we know this town, and we know the cold. We live here for a reason: because nobody else can.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: They're burning down the town.
Denise: Nobody will know what happened. They'll just think it was some horrible accident.

Sheriff Eben Oleson: What?
Stella Oleson: Get in the fucking truck!
