Quotes

Jack Sayer: You're huntin' it, ain't ya? Yeah, you're huntin' it, all right. Just like me.

Dr. Loomis: What are you hunting, Mr. Sayer?

Jack Sayer: Apocalypse, End of the World, Armageddon. It's always got a face and a name. I've been huntin' the bastard for 30 years, give or take. Come close a time or two. Too damn close! You can't kill damnation, Mister. It don't die like a man dies.

Dr. Loomis: I know that, Mr. Sayer.

Dr. Loomis: Ten years ago, he tried to kill Laurie Strode. Now he wants her daughter.

Sheriff Meeker: Are you talkin' about Jamie Lloyd?

Dr. Loomis: Wherever she is, that little child is in mortal danger.

Sheriff Meeker: Myers has been locked up since before she was born. He's never laid eyes on her!

Dr. Loomis: Six bodies, Sheriff! That's what I've seen between here and Ridgemont! A filling station in flames! I'm telling you Michael Myers is here, in this town! He's here to kill that little girl and anybody who gets in his way!

Deputy Logan: What are we doin'?

Sheriff Meeker: Making sure no one can get in here.

Deputy Logan: Isn't all this a little paranoid?

Sheriff Meeker: If you'd seen that police station, you wouldn't even ask.

[Rachel catches Brady with Kelly]

Brady: I mean, you blow off our date at the last minute...

Rachel Carruthers: So, you hop on to the next best thing? I thought you were different from other guys.

Brady: Oh, I'm different. It's just- it's just that... I just- I just got pissed off, that's all.

Rachel Carruthers: Oh, really? Well, I'll just let you get back to little Miss Hot Panties.

Earl: Martians could land on Ben's doorstep and all he'd do is spit once and get himself a shotgun.

[the power worker sees Michael Myers]

Power Worker: Hey, you! This is city property! No trespassing! What are you, deaf? Don't try that Halloween shit with me.

Security Guard: Yeah, the one you're picking up, just thinkin' about him gives me the willies. A decade ago, Halloween night, he murdered sixteen people, maybe more, trying to get to his sister. Nearly got her, too. But his doctor, of all people, shot him six times, then he set him on fire. Both of them nearly burned to death. Yeah, I'll be glad to see this one gone. Oh, yes indeed-dee!

Kelly Meeker: I didn't know you and Brady had anything, okay?

Rachel Carruthers: You knew. You just didn't care.

Kelly Meeker: He's not married. Besides, I've got a right to do what's best for me.

Rachel Carruthers: Don't you mean what you do best?

Kelly Meeker: Wise up to what men want, Rachel... or Brady won't be the last man you lose to another woman.

[the attendants are in the ambulance with Michael Myers, unaware that he is coming out of his coma]

Woman Attendant: Did Hoffman say anything about living relatives?

Man Attendant: Yeah. A niece living in his hometown.

Woman Attendant: And?

Man Attendant: "And"? She's too young to be his legal ward.

Woman Attendant: So, the state owns him? Great.

[Loomis and Dr. Hoffman arrive at a river where the ambulance containing Michael Myers crashed into]

Dr. Hoffman: When did this happen?

Trooper #1: Sometime in the night. They probably lost the road in the storm and came down the embankment. It happens.

Dr. Hoffman: An accident?

Trooper #1: Yes, sir?

Dr. Loomis: Do you believe that?

Dr. Hoffman: Why shouldn't I?

Rachel Carruthers: We have to get out of Haddonfield. The state police are on their way. Let them handle it.

Unger: I don't know about you, Earl, but that makes sense to me. Let's get the hell out!

Big Al: We've got a police station. Let the troopers have him. That's what they get paid for.

Earl: Screw it. Let's get out of here.

[after all the cops at the station are slaughtered]

Sheriff Meeker: How could a man do this, Loomis? Tell me.

Dr. Loomis: This isn't a man.

Sheriff Meeker: What is he? Tell me! What the hell are we dealing with?

Dr. Loomis: Evil.

[Wade is waiting to approach Kelly]

Brady: Hey, Wade, why don't you go ahead and make your move?

Dr. Loomis: [encounters the Shape in gas station] Michael? Why now? You waited ten years. I knew this day would come. Don't go to Haddonfield. If you want another victim, take me. But leave those people in peace. Please, Michael?

[pause]

Dr. Loomis: Goddamn you.

[Loomis shoots]

Man Attendant: I'd assume Dr. Loomis would be here. Michael Myers is still his patient.

Dr. Hoffman: If Loomis read memos he'd be here. Fortunately, his position is more ceremonial than medical. And with Myers gone, my hope is that he'll either transfer, retire, or die.

Dr. Hoffman: Now where are you going?

Dr. Loomis: Haddonfield. It's a four hour drive. You can reach me through the local police. If you don't find him in four hours, I'm sure I will.

Darlene Carruthers: We'll be at the Fallbrooks. The number's next to the phone.

Rachel Carruthers: I know, and next to that is police, hospital, fire, and probably the National Guard.

Richard Carruthers: I want you two to have fun tonight. Make sure Jamie's in bed by 9:30.

Rachel Carruthers: You're gonna be late. You don't wanna blow your promotion.

Darlene Carruthers: Don't make fun. Tonight is the difference between vacations in Bermuda, and spending another two weeks with your grandmother in Cleveland.

Darlene Carruthers: You'll have to watch Jamie tonight.

Rachel Carruthers: Not tonight. I've got that date with Brady. You know how important that is.

Darlene Carruthers: Well, tonight is very important for your father and me.

Rachel Carruthers: Can't you find somebody else?

Darlene Carruthers: It's too late.

Rachel Carruthers: What am I suppose to tell Brady? "Sorry, but I've gotta babysit my foster sister. Go and have fun by yourself"?

Darlene Carruthers: It's not exactly the end of the world, for goodness' sake.

Rachel Carruthers: Sure, it is. I think tonight Brady was ready to make a commitment. But now, my future relationship, my engagement, my marriage, my children, and your grandchildren have all been wiped out because I have to babysit. Oh, joy.

Jamie Lloyd: [standing at the doorway, hearing everything] I'm sorry I ruined everything. If I wasn't here, you can go out.

[Rachel groans]

Richard Carruthers: Good job, Rachel. That little girl needs all the love we can give her, and all you can do is think about yourself.
