Neil: Can you see my dog, Bub? He was hit by an animal rescue van. Tragic and ironic.
Grandma: There's nothing wrong with being scared Norman, so long as you don't let it change who you are.
Aggie: Aggie... My name was Aggie... I - I remember... My mommy brought me here once. We sat under the tree and she told me stories. They all had happy endings. Then those horrible men came and took me away and I never saw her again!
Norman Babcock: Sometimes when people get scared, they say and do terrible things. I think you got so scared that you forgot who you are. But I don't think you're a witch. Not really.
Aggie: You don't?
Norman Babcock: I think you're just a little kid with a really special gift who only ever wanted people to understand her. So we're not all that different at all.
Aggie: But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?
Norman Babcock: Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere.
Aggie: I just want my mommy.
Norman Babcock: I'm sorry, Aggie. She's gone.
Aggie: That story you were telling. How does it end?
Norman Babcock: I think that's up to you.
Aggie: Is this where they buried me?
Norman Babcock: It's a pretty good place to sleep. Then you can be with your mom again.
Mr. Prenderghast: Pssstttt, you know who I am?
Neil: The weird stinky old bum who lives up the hill?
Mr. Prenderghast: [Points at Norman] I was asking him!
Norman Babcock: Dad says I shouldn't talk to you anymore, Grandma.
Grandma: Jackass, if I were a poltergeist I'd throw something at his head.
Movie Zombie: Grrr. Brains!
Grandma: What's happening now?
Norman Babcock: Well, the zombie is eating her head, Grandma.
Grandma: That's not very nice. What's he doing that for?
Norman Babcock: [chuckles] Because he's a zombie. That's what they do.
Grandma: He's gonna ruin his dinner. I'm sure if they just bothered to sit down and talk it through, it would be a different story.
Courtney: Mom, tell the Zombie to stop saying stuff about me!
Courtney: [to the angry mob] Everyone STOP trying to kill my little brother, you're adults! .Stop it!
Aggie: I burnt the book into dust. Now I don't have to listen to that stupid story anymore! Leave me alone.
Norman Babcock: No. No, I'm not leaving. Just listen to me! Uhh... Once upon a time, long ago, there was a little girl.
Norman Babcock: A - a little girl who was different... Who was different from the other people in her village.
Aggie: I'm not listening! La la la la la...
Norman Babcock: She could see and - and do things that no one could understand! And that made them scared of her!
Aggie: I don't like this story!
Norman Babcock: She turned away from everyone and became sad and lonely, and had no one to turn to!
Aggie: STOP IT.
Norman Babcock: The more she turned away from people, the more scared they were of her. And they did something terrible! They became so scared that they took her away and they killed her!
Norman Babcock: And even - and even though she was dead, something in her came back!
Norman Babcock: And this part of her, wouldn't go away even after three hundred years!
Aggie: SHUT UP.
Norman Babcock: And the longer it stayed, the less there was of the little girl.
Aggie: I'll make you suffer!
Norman Babcock: Why?
Aggie: Because... Because...
Norman Babcock: Because you want everyone to hurt just as much as you are. So whenever you wake up, you play this mean game, but you don't play fair!
Aggie: They hurt me!
Norman Babcock: So you hurt them back?
Aggie: I wanted everyone to see how rotten they were!
Norman Babcock: You're just like them, Agatha!
Aggie: No, I'm not!
Sandra Babcock: Sometimes people can say things that seem mean, but it's just because they're afraid.
Norman Babcock: He's my father, he shouldn't be afraid of me.
Sandra Babcock: He's not afraid OF you, he's afraid FOR you.
Courtney: O MG, you are such a liar.
Norman Babcock: God, I'm not making this up, I swear. She talks to me all the time.
Courtney: Oh yeah. Prove it
Norman Babcock: [smirks] She said, it not very lady like. To hide photos of high school quarterback with his shirt off, in your underwear drawer.
Courtney: [GASP] I... KNEW IT! UGH, YOU'VE BEEN SNEAKING AROUND, IN MY PERSONAL... UGH.
Norman Babcock: No I haven't grandma told me.
Courtney: YOU ARE THE WORST!
Norman Babcock: [discovering the identity of the town witch] How could you? She was just a kid.
Neil: [to the mob, about Norman] All night long he's been trying to save you guys.
Mitch: Yeah, but all you want to do is burn and murder stuff, burn and murder stuff, just burning and murdering.
Sandra Babcock: Not believing in an afterlife is like not believing in astrology.
Aggie: I don't want to go to sleep. And you can't make me.
Neil: So what do we do now?
Norman Babcock: Uhh... I... I - I really don't know.
Courtney: Yes you do, Norman. You've gotta get to that witch's grave.
Norman Babcock: But...
Courtney: But nothing, you listen to me, buster. We didn't turn away when Daleridge High was slaughtering our volleyball team, did we?
Norman Babcock: Yeah, we did.
Courtney: No, we didn't. I have cheered the un-cheerable, Norman. And I'm not letting you give up now.
Sandra Babcock: Norman, I know you and grandma were very close, but we all have to move on. Grandma's in a better place
Norman Babcock: No she's not, she's in the living room.
Perry Babcock: Your grandmother was old and sick, and she died. That's ll there is to it.
Norman Babcock: Hey dad, grandma said can you turn up the heating, her feet are cold.
[Courtney pops her gum, and Perry fall off ladder]
Sandra Babcock: Now Perry.
Perry Babcock: How many time to we have to go through this son. YOUR GRANDMOTHER IS DEAD!
Perry Babcock: This is where it stops! It's one thing being a mental case in front of your family, but not the whole freaking town! There's not gonna be any more talking to ghosts, or grandmas, or, or... what is it now?
Sandra Babcock: I think it's trees.
Perry Babcock: You're grounded! You hear me?
Norman Babcock: This is ridiculous. I wish everyone could see what I see! I didn't ask to be born this way!
Perry Babcock: [Perry mutters as he slams his door shut] Funny, neither did we.
Courtney: [after a night of adventure and danger with zombies and witches, Norman's sister tries to further her relationship with Neil's older brother, whom she regards as "ripped"] So, I was thinking, maybe we could catch a movie sometime. Nothing scary.
Mitch: [Mitch is looking around the town square, seeming a bit distracted, even calling her by the wrong name] That sounds great, Cathy. You know, you're gonna love my boyfriend. He's like a total chick-flick nut.
