Quotes

Ash: Yeah!

[after shooting King Arthur's sword in half]

Ash: Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

[In a passionate moment of romance]

Ash: Gimme some sugar, baby.

[last lines]

Ash: [voiceover] Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I *am* king.

[Ash grabs girl close]

Ash: Hail to the king, baby.

[Ash kisses the girl]

Duke Henry: You Sir, are not one of my vassals... who are you?

Ash: Who wants to know?

Duke Henry: I am Henry the Red. Duke of Shale, Lord of the Northlands and leader of its peoples.

Ash: Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things, right now: Jack and shit... and Jack left town.

Ash: Klaatu Barada Nikto.

Wiseman: Well, repeat them.

Ash: Klaatu Barada Nikto.

Wiseman: Again.

Ash: I got it, I got it! I know your damn words, alright?

Old Woman: I'll swallow your soul!

Ash: Come get some.

Ash: Klaatu Barada N... Necktie... Neckturn... Nickel... It's an "N" word, it's definitely an "N" word! Klaatu... Barada... N...

[coughs]

Ash: [pause] Okay then... that's it!

[Upon getting the powered glove in place of his right hand]

Ash: Groovy.

Ash: Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

Ash: Hail to the king, baby.

Sheila: I may be bad... but I feel gooood.

Ash: [to the Witch] Yo, she-bitch! Let's go!

Possessed woman: Who the hell are you?

Ash: Name's Ash.

[cocks rifle]

Ash: Housewares.

Sheila: But what of all those sweet words you spoke in private?

Ash: Oh that's just what we call pillow talk, baby, that's all.

[from Director's Cut]

Ash: What are you? Are you me?

Evil Ash: Whad are do? Are do be? HAHAHAHAHAH! You sound like a jerk!

Evil Ash: Oh, you wanna know? 'Cause the answer's easy! I'm BAD Ash... and you're GOOD Ash! You're a goody little two-shoes! Little goody two-shoes! Little goody two-shoes!

Evil Ash: GOODY LITTLE TWO-SHOES! GOODY LITTLE...

Ash: [cocks shotgun and points it under Evil Ash's nose]

[nods head and shoots him]

Ash: Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

Ash: It's a trick. Get an axe.

[Sheila wants to apologize to Ash]

Ash: First you wanna kill me, now you wanna kiss me. Blow.

Arthur: Are all men from the future loud-mouthed braggarts?

Ash: Nope. Just me baby... Just me.

Sheila: You found me beautiful once...

Ash: Honey, you got reeeal ugly!

[as an evil Ash begins growing out of his shoulder]

Ash: Oh, dear God, it's growing bigger!

[when Sheila walks into the blacksmith's shop to talk to Ash]

Ash: What? Were you raised in a barn? Shut the door! Probably was raised in a barn, along with the other primitives.

Evil Ash: You're pissing me off, you ugly son of a bitch!

Ash: Now I swear the next one of you primates even *touches* me...

Ash: Maybe. Just maybe my boys can protect the book. Yeah, and maybe I'm a Chinese jet pilot.

[after Ash chops up Evil Ash with a chainsaw and throws him into a hole]

Evil Ash: You'll never retrieve the Necronomicon! You'll die before ya get it!

Ash: Hey! What's that you got on your face?

Evil Ash: Huh?

[Ash throws dirt on Evil Ash's face]

Ash: See how that works?

Ash: [trying to kill a small Ash that has jumped into his mouth and into his stomach, he gets a kettle of boiling water] Okay, little fella, here's a little

[shouts]

Ash: hot chocolate for ya! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Wiseman: When you removed the book from the cradle, did you speak the words?

Ash: Yeah, basically.

Wiseman: Did you speak the exact words?

Ash: Look, maybe I didn't say every single little tiny syllable, no. But basically I said them, yeah.

[first lines]

[opening monologue]

Ash: My name is Ash and I am a slave. Close as I can figure, the year is thirteen hundred A.D and I'm being dragged to my death. It wasn't always like this, I had a real life, once. A job.

Ash: [now Ash is in a flashback] Umm... Hardware aisle twelve, shop smart, shop S-Mart!

Ash: [back to monologue] I had a wonderful girlfriend Linda. Together we drove to a small cabin in the mountains. It seems an archeologist had come to this remote place to translate and study his latest find: Necronomiconexmortis. The Book of the Dead. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, this ancient Samarian text contained bizarre burial rights, funeral incantations, and demon resurrection passages, it was never meant for the world of the living. The book awoke something dark in the woods, something evil.

[something crashes through the window of the cabin and Linda screams]

Ash: It took Linda. Then it came after me, it got into my hand and it went bad, so I lopped it off at the wrist.

[Ash is seen cutting off his hand]

Ash: But that didn't stop it, it came back big time.

Ash: [Ash gets pulled into the vortex holding onto the doorway] For God's sake how do you stop it?

[Ash falls into the vortex and the opening credits start]

Wiseman: Only the Necronomicon has the power. An unholy book which we also require. Within its pages are passages that can send you back to your time. Only you the promised one can quest for it.

Ash: I don't want your book, I don't want your bullshit. Just send me back to my own time, pronto, today. Chop chop!
