Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) Poster

Quotes

Grandpa Fred: [interviewing Brain Gremlin] Creature what is it that you want?

Brain Gremlin: Fred, what we want is, I think, what everyone wants, and what you and your viewers have: civilization.

Grandpa Fred: Yes, but what sort of civilization are you speaking of?

Brain Gremlin: The niceties, Fred. The fine points: diplomacy, compassion, standards, manners, tradition... that's what we're reaching toward. Oh, we may stumble along the way, but civilization, yes. The Geneva Convention, chamber music, Susan Sontag. Everything your society has worked so hard to accomplish over the centuries, that's what we aspire to; we want to be civilized.

[a Gremlin with a beanie cap acts goofy next to Brain]

Brain Gremlin: You take a look at this fellow here.

[Brain shoots the Gremlin in the head. The Gremlins in the bar laugh. Grandpa Fred and Kujitsu leave]

Brain Gremlin: Now, was that civilized? No, clearly not. Fun, but in no sense civilized. Now, bear in mind, none of us has been in New York before. There are the Broadway shows - we'll have to find out how to get tickets. There's also a lot of street crime, but I believe we can watch that for free. We want the essentials. Dinettes. Complete bedroom groups. Convenient credit, even though we've been turned down in the past.

Grandpa Fred: They put me on at 3am. People who are awake at 3am aren't afraid of the Wolfman. The only thing that frightens those people is sobering up and going to work.

Hulk Hogan: Okay you guys, listen up! People pay good money to see this movie! When they go out to a theater they want cold sodas, hot popcorn, and no monsters in the projection booth! Do I have to come up there myself? Do you think the Gremsters can stand up to the Hulkster? Well, if I were you, I'd run the rest of Gremlins 2! Right now! Sorry folks, it won't happen again.

[theater audience applauds and cheers]

Kate Peltzer: [enters elevator]

Elevator: [a bit garbled] Please state your desired floor.

Kate Peltzer: Thirty-Eight

Gremlins: Thirty Eight. *Thirty Eight* *Thirty Eight!*

Gremlins: Going up.

Kate Peltzer: [worried/unsure as the elevator starts going up at an alarming rate. The floor number indicator counts up faster and faster and soon passes floor 38, soon she panics] Elevator stop!

[the elevator stops with a jolt]

Kate Peltzer: [after a beat] Sound alarm.

Gremlins: [imitating alarm] Erhn! Ehrn! Erhn! Erhn!

Gremlins: [after a short while we are taken back to the scene where Kate is still stuck in the elevator worried] HA HA HA

Gremlins: [Grabbing Kate's Legs] Make a wish!

Gremlins: [Grabbing Kate's Hair] Ah, Hair!

Elevator: [talking gibberish and then one says clearly] Going down.

Lady: [the elevator goes down at an alarming rate. Many gremlins are on the outside of the lift as it rushes down and then crashes splattering them into a green mush]

Elevator: [all garbled up and dying as the doors open to reveal a couple and Kate about half a floor down inside covered with green gremlin blood] The elevator doors have opened. Please watch your step.

Kate Peltzer: [Kate looks around at the destruction and is left dazed] Uh, Uh

Lady: We'll... we'll get the next one.

Daniel Clamp: I'm not.

Kate Peltzer: You're not?

Daniel Clamp: For one thing, we're insured for the damages. For another, maybe it wasn't a place for people anyway. It was a place for things. You make a place for things... things come.
