  • Hey, she's dead? Hey, what the hell are you doing, you didn't say anything about a dead body, we were supposed to save her life!

Dialogue edit

Paul Conway: [Elvira rolls the basketball inside her house] Hey, you can't do that.
Elvira Parker: Oh yes, I can. My property. My house. My ball.
Tom: What a witch!

Samantha Pringle: [Samantha has a nosebleed] Do you have some ice?
Jeannie Conway: Oh my God. Come on in. Sit down. Paul, get some ice. [to Samantha] Hold your head back, back. [to Paul] Hurry. [to Samantha] What happened?
Samantha Pringle: Nothing. I just get them sometimes.
Paul Conway: Here you go.
Jeannie Conway: Listen, sweetheart, this may be butting in where I don't belong, but don't you think someone should say something?
Samantha Pringle: For what, a nosebleed? Come on, I've had them since I was a kid. Ice will take care of it. I just forgot to fill the tray.
Jeannie Conway: Oh, Sam, I don't like this.
Samantha Pringle: I hate them.
Jeannie Conway: C'mon you know what I mean. It's criminal. He could go to jail.
Samantha Pringle: He's my father. Sometimes I want to roll a truck over his face but he's still my father.

Neighbor: Old man Pringle and Mrs. Parker, both dead. His face was burned off.
Paul Conway: Elvira Parker?
Neighbor: Yeah, I heard somebody say she called the police. Said she saw Sam in her bedroom window. From what I hear, Elvira's head's all over the walls in there.

[Sam emerges into an evil version of BB and chokes Paul to his death, talking in a evil, whispering voice]
Samantha Pringle: Paul. Come with me, Paul.
Paul Conway: [screaming] NOOOOOOOO!
[Sam snaps Paul's neck]
Samantha Pringle: BB.
