Quentin Smith: Look, we're running out of time.

Nancy Holbrook: What do you mean?

Quentin Smith: [Reading a book] But then it says at the 70-hour mark the insomniac will begin to experience micro-naps. "His brain will begin to shut down its functions for several seconds in an attempt to recharge itself." Which basically means you're dreaming, but you don't know it. Like, even if you're awake. And then it says that after that, your brain will shut down, inducing a coma. Which is permanent sleep.

Quentin Smith: [Storms into his father's office] You killed Kruger.

Alan Smith: Where'd you here that name?

Quentin Smith: You chased him, you cornered him and you burned him to death. You hunted him!

Alan Smith: We were not hunting. We were protecting you.

Quentin Smith: [shouting] From what?

Alan Smith: From *him*. From what he did to you. From what you kids said he did to you.

Quentin Smith: [shouting] We were five! We would've said anything! Why didn't you do to the police?

Alan Smith: You were so young.

Quentin Smith: [Whipspers to himself] No. God! And the things we said he did. The cave. Did you ever find it?

Alan Smith: No.

Quentin Smith: How do you know that he was guilty?

[His father looks uncertain]

Nancy Holbrook: Oh, my god!

Quentin Smith: You killed an innocent man!

Alan Smith: Mm-mm. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about that night, Quentin.

Quentin Smith: Good, you deserve at least that.

Alan Smith: Quentin, when you grow up and you have kids, I hope you never know the feeling of utterly failing to protect them.

Quentin Smith: We were wrong. He's not after us because we lied. He's after us because we told the truth.

Freddy Krueger: [Nancy is screaming] Oh, that's music to my ears.

Nancy Holbrook: [struggling] I wanna wake up!

Freddy Krueger: You can't wake up. I had to keep you awake long enough so when you finally slept, you'd never wake up again. We're gonna be in here a long time. Did you really think your boyfriend could wake you up?

[puts claw on chest]

Freddy Krueger: I'm your boyfriend now.

Dr. Gwen Holbrook: [Voice-over] There was a man at the preschool. his name was Fred Kruger. He was a gardener. He lived in the basement of the preschool. And you kids were his life. We didn't want to believe it at first. You were all so innocent. And you, Nancy. You were his favorite of all. And then we started to notice things.

Quentin Smith: So what did you do? Did you call the police?

Dr. Gwen Holbrook: He left town before we got a chance to confront him. He's gone. He can't hurt you anymore.

Nancy Holbrook: I keep dreaming about children, too. And then there's also a school.

Quentin Smith: Well, it's gotta mean something.

Nancy Holbrook: Yeah, but, I mean, what? We didn't go to school together until, like, 6th grade.

Jesse Braun: Oh, please don't...

Kris Fowles: He said, "You're not real." He kept repeating it over and over again. Do you have any idea what that means?

Jesse Braun: No. I don't. Think about. What would it mean? Dean was on a truck load of medication when...

Kris Fowles: Jesse, when it happened, it was like somebody was making him do it but there was nobody there. Jesse, you have to believe me!

Jesse Braun: Kris, it was late and you were scared! Your mind was just playing tricks on you that's all...

Nancy Holbrook: [approaches Kris] I believe you.

Kris Fowles: You do?

Nancy Holbrook: I've seen, I saw...
