Keri Johnson: [after The Wraith has transformed into Jake] Jake!

Jake: [smiles] You know who I am.

Keri Johnson: It's close enough.

[They kiss]

Murphy: This kid smashed down a canyon through fire and bustin' glass.

Sheriff Loomis: Must've been a thousand degrees in that car.

Murphy: Uh-huh. At least.

Sheriff Loomis: Where's his eyes?

Murphy: Sent cats climbin' up my spine when I saw 'em haulin' this corpse outta that canyon - clean as if he'd come out of a hot tub. I'm worried, Loomis. Som'pin' ain't right.

Sheriff Loomis: Forget it, Murphy. Roadblocks won't stop somethin' that can't be stopped.

Murphy: Loomis, what're you sayin'?

Sheriff Loomis: I'm sayin' it's over. There's nobody left in Packard's gang to kill.

Sheriff Loomis: You listen to me, you son-of-a-bitch! There's a kid out there usin' his car to kill people, not that it's such a big deal since it seems to be your gang he's got it in for... so, if you guys try to take the law into your own hands, and that killer turns up dead, I'm gonna see you all sniffin' cyanide in the Arizona gas chamber.

Keri Johnson: [after kissing Jake] Nice.

Jake: I thought so, too.

Keri Johnson: Look, Jake, if Packard knew I was here with you... I mean, people are afriad of him for a reason.

Jake: People are afraid because guys like Packard prey on fear and weakness.

Keri Johnson: Well, I just think he's crazy. Try and be brave against Packard and he might kill you.

Jake: Or he might let you go. Courage isn't easy to come by. That's how he keeps those goons with him all the time. They're just scared.

Keri Johnson: So am I.

Jake: Keri, listen. There's gonna come a time when you'll have to take a stand. When you do that, that's when you'll free yourself of him. No sooner.

Packard Walsh: [catching Billy about to take Keri home] So what happened here? Looks to me like you ran out of those all-beef patties kind of EARLY today, huh?

Billy Hankins: Hey, don't worry, Pack. We still got plenty of dog food.

Oggie: Hey, Packard, let's grind up some meat, huh?

Billy Hankins: Hey, has this guy been wormed or is he just a naturally gifted child?

[Oggie makes a lunge for Billy but Packard detains him with a knife to his throat]

Oggie: [to Billy] I swear to God I'll... I'll rip your head off and piss down your throat.

Packard Walsh: Hold your water Oggie. This is business.

Rughead: This gang thing was okay when we had the edge, but now that there's that wraith out there that killed Oggie...

Skank: A what out there, man?

Rughead: A wraith, man! A ghost! A evil spirit - and it ain't cool!

Billy Hankins: [Talking about Keri] Me and her are pretty good friends. Well, actually she's... she used to be tight with my brother. She's got real problems with that lunatic she's with there now.

Jake: What kind of problems?

Billy Hankins: Well, Packard's a mistake of nature or a genetic misfire.

Jake: [laughing] He's what?

Billy Hankins: Packard gets crazy jealous if anybody even looks at Keri cross-eyed. You gotta wear dark glasses so he doesn't catch you at it.

Jake: Well, it's time for me to hit the road. My business here is finished. Before I do, I want you to have somethin'.

Jake: It's outside. Turbo Interceptor. The only one in existence. Does very special things. Take care of it, will ya?

[Having handed Billy the keys to his car, Jake quickly disappears down the street on his bike]

Billy Hankins: Wait a minute! Come back! Come back, bro!

Billy Hankins: [turns to look at the Turbo Interceptor he's just been given] Whoa. Ha-ha. Whoa! Cool. Hey, man, far out.

Billy Hankins: [calling out to the empty street] Hey, Jake, who are you?

Billy Hankins: [slowly realizing who Jake is] It couldn't have been... Jake! Jake! JAMIE!

[the gang is looking for The Wraith after he trashes their chop shop]

Packard Walsh: So where is he, tuna can?

Skank: Dude, we couldn't find the slimeball anywhere!

Gutterboy: Yeah, we went 'cross town, down to Crawford's Gully. We stopped for a... a box of Goobers...

Packard Walsh: You guys are pissin' me off! I want that faggot!

Minty: Yeah! This freak's into us for about 13,000 bucks!

Gutterboy: We spent all last night banging on the two bodies! I got scabs on my knuckles and everything like that!

Minty: It's your damn job, Gutterboy.

Rughead: [referring to the Wraith] What's he got with us?

Packard Walsh: What he's got is an ass full of trouble.

Skank: Yeah, it's about time we got into somebody's ass, huh, guys?

Gutterboy: Yeah, we'll beat him like a red-headed step-child!

Skank: I'm gonna knock his ass lower than whale shit.

Keri Johnson: You think I'd go to California with you? I'd rather go to Nogales, have the Gutterboy's cretin children and die than to be with you.

Packard Walsh: You better shut up now, Keri, or I'm gonna have to...

Keri Johnson: Yeah, you can kill me, too, Packard, but you can never make me love you.

Keri Johnson: I dreamed that the man in the moon was laughing at me.

Jake: He does laugh all the time. You ever notice that?

Keri Johnson: Then I was headed east on the back of a motorcycle and the driver was Jamie Henkins. What's strange is that Jamie's dead.

Sheriff Loomis: Well, you listen good, Skank. I know it's gonna be hard with your melon on chemical overload, but there's a killer out there and I'm gonna track the hairball down. So, when you two crater-heads get finished mining for nose gold and you get a relapse of memory, you let me know, huh? I'm just a phone call away.
