Phillip Anderson: Can I interject something just to save us all some time?

Dr. Neil Gordon: Sure, Phillip. Go ahead.

Phillip Anderson: Well, according to our kind hosts, our dreams are a group psychosis. Sort of a mellow mass hysteria. The fact that we all dreamt about this guy before we ever met doesn't impress anybody. So we go in circles making minimal progress with maximum effort.

Dr. Elizabeth Simms: You won't make any progress until you recognize your dreams for what they are.

Nancy Thompson: And what are they?

Dr. Elizabeth Simms: The by-products of guilt. Psychological scars stemming from moral conflicts and overt sexuality.

Roland Kincaid: Oh, great. Now it's my dick that's killing me.

[Freddy lifts Kincaid by the throat]

Nancy Thompson: He's strong. He's never been this strong.

Freddy Krueger: Yes. The souls of the children...

[rips open his sweater revealing faces of children on his chest]

Freddy Krueger: ...give me strength.

Nancy Thompson: Oh, God.

Max: [walks in the TV room] Girl, what are you doing?

Jennifer Caulfield: Watching TV.

Max: I can see that. Why don't you read a book? You watch too much damn TV.

Jennifer Caulfield: Research.

Max: [sarcastically] Oh, right. You're gonna be a TV star.

Jennifer Caulfield: Wait and see.

Max: [about to turn off the TV] Well, if Simms catches you up here after lights out she is gonna chew my ass...

Jennifer Caulfield: [interrupting Max] I gotta stay up, Max!

Max: Jennifer.

Jennifer Caulfield: Just tonight, please? I can't handle the nightmare. Not after Phillip. Not tonight.

Max: Okay. But I never saw you.

Jennifer Caulfield: Thanks, Max.

Thompson: Fred Kreuger is dead. You've always had such a hard time understanding that.

Nancy Thompson: You know what he did. He's doing it again.

Dr. Neil Gordon: She's telling the truth, sir.

Thompson: I don't think we've ever met, friend. This doesn't concern you.

Nancy Thompson: I think we can stop him. Stop him for good this time, but we need to know where his bones were hidden.

Thompson: It was good seeing you again, princess. Next time, don't stay away so long.

Nancy Thompson: Hey! We should, find the others first.

Roland Kincaid: You think you're hot shit with the little mute kid, don't ya? Well let me see you come get a piece of me! Krueger! Pussy! Yeah, I knew he was a little chicken.

[Door appears behind them]

Roland Kincaid: Shit.

Roland Kincaid: But, it doesn't go anywhere.

Dr. Elizabeth Simms: I'm not going to take any more of this. How much longer are you going to go on blaming your dreams for your own weaknesses?

Roland Kincaid: Lady, how much longer you gonna keep blowin' smoke up our ass?

Dr. Neil Gordon: That's enough, Kincaid!

Simms: There will be no repeat occurrences of last night's events. From now on your doors will be locked during sleeping hours. We'll start a policy of evening sedation for everybody.

Kincaid: [Jumping out of his seat] The fuck you will! Anybody tries drugs on me gets his ass kicked!

Simms: Well, you just bought yourself a night in the quite room, Mister. Now sit down!

Kincaid: Fuck you! You sit down!

Dr. Neil Gordon: Don't hold back on us, Max. We need all the help we can get.

Max: It's fucked up chromosomes, man. Think about it. All their parents dropped acid during the sixties.

Dr. Neil Gordon: Well, it beats Simm's theory. She thinks it's nothing but sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

Max: Shit. That's what keeps people alive.

Lorenzo: The dispensary. I'm talking clean pharmaceutical high, a night at Club Meth.

Taryn White: I don't do that shit.

Lorenzo: [grabs Taryn's wrist exposing needle tracks on her arm] Yeah? What are those, beauty marks?

Taryn White: Those are ancient history.

Lorenzo: Oh, yeah? Well, if you're ever in the mood for a history lesson, I'm your teacher. Understand?

Taryn White: Stay out of my face, or I'll go straight to Max.

Lorenzo: Oh, yeah? Now who's going to take the word of a crazy junkie chick like you?

Nancy Thompson: He wears a dirty brown hat. He's horribly burned. He has razors on his right hand.

Taryn: Who is he?

Nancy Thompson: His name is Freddy Krueger. He was a child murderer before he died, and after he died he became something worse. Six years ago, he killed my friends. He almost killed me.

Will Stanton: Why is he after us?

Taryn: Yeah, what did we do?

Nancy Thompson: It's not you. Your parents, my parents, they burned him alive. And now we're paying for their sins. You are the last of the Elm Street children.
