R. L. StineEdit

  • [Slams on the brakes] Let me tell you something about Steve King. Steve King wishes he could write like me. And I've sold way more books than him, but nobody ever talks about that! Way more books!
  • It's Slappy's Revenge. Slappy's Revenge. That's a good title.

Zach CooperEdit

  • Well, my mom said to me, "Zach, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?" And I said, "Can we please move to Madison, Delaware?" That'd be my dream.
  • You see the endings coming from a mile away. It's like, stop trying to be Stephen King, man.

Hannah StineEdit

  • Zach, it's time to move on, now open the book, scaredy cat.

ChampEdit

  • Y'know how they say teenagers have no fear of death? That they're never gonna get hurt? Well not me, OK? I was born with the gift of fear.

DialogueEdit

Robert Lawrence Stine: [introducing himself to a classroom] Hello. My name is R. L. Stine. Every story ever told can be broken down into 3 parts - the beginning… the middle… and the twist.

[Stine sucks the Abominable Snowman back into the manuscript, saving Zach, Hannah, and Champ.]
Stine: All of you in the car NOW!

[Stine throws a candelabra which misses Zach and Champ.]
Stine: I could've killed you!
Zach: [Confused] How?
Champ: That was a terrible throw.

Zach: Maybe they're friendly.
[A gnome throws a knife next to Zach.]
Zach: Not friendly! Definitely not friendly!

[After trapping some gnomes in the oven, Zach, Hannah, and Champ untie Stine.]
Champ: I really imagined something different. "Come over to my house. There'll be girls. I'm your wingman."
[Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ turn to see the rest of the gnomes rebuilding themselves.]
Champ: No, no, no, no, no.
Zach: We gotta get out of here. We need to get to the basement.
Stine: It's locked.
Zach: I picked it.
[Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ run to the basement, with the gnomes following behind.]
Stine: That's breaking and entering!
[Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ run down the stairs to the basement, with the gnomes following behind.]
Stine: Watch out for the bear traps!
[Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ jump over the bear traps.]
Champ: Why'd it have to be bear traps?!
Zach: Hurry! Come on, hurry! Come on!
[The gnomes gets snapped up and broken by the bear traps. Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ run up the basement stairs that lead outside. Stine opens the door leading to the basement and he, Zach, Hannah, and Champ run out of it. Right as the gnomes are about to get out of the basement, Stine slams the door shut, with Zach locking it with a padlock. Stine presses his back against the door to catch his breath.]
Zach: Why couldn't you have written stories about rainbows and unicorns?
Stine: Because that doesn't sell 400 million copies.
Champ: Whoa. Domestic?
Stine: No, worldwide. It's still very impressive. Shut up.
[Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ see some ashes in the air.]
Hannah: What is that?
[Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Champ run over to a burning book on the ground.]
Hannah: He's burning the books.
Zach: Why is he doing that?
Stine: So there's no way to get the monsters back inside. It's Slappy's Revenge. Slappy's Revenge. That's a good title.
[Zach, Hannah, and Champ look at Stine.]

Champion: The Abominable Snowman just crawl out of a book, that doesn't just happen!
R. L. Stine: You just released every monster I've ever created!
Champ: What was that?
Stine: It's the Invisible Boy.
Champ: [Getting slapped by Brent the Invisible Boy] Ow!
Stine: Ah, he's such a crack up.

[during a chase in the grocery store, the werewolf crashes in an aisle of food, then R. L. Stine trips and gets placed in a shopping cart, and Zach pushes the cart]
Robert: What are you doing? Get me out! [the werewolf starts coming after Zach and Stine] Oh, no, no, no, no, no, keep going!

Hannah: [quietly] Did you unlock a book?
Zach Cooper: I'm sorry. I'll put it back where it belongs. Look, here it is.
Hannah: No, don't open it! [Zach accidentally opens a manuscript which releases the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena, the Abominable Snowman touches a light of a ceiling lamp, which stings his finger] [whispering] Nobody make a sound. [Champ screams in terror which the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena hears him, then he starts to charge at him, but Zach pushes him aside, then the Abominable Snowman breaks out of the house]

Hannah: So you're the new neighbor?
Zach: Yeah. I'm Zach, by the way.
Hannah: I'm Hannah.
Stine: [from behind her] Hannah!
Hannah: I gotta go.
[R. L. Stine appears at the window]
Zach: Hey, we're just moving in.
Stine: [referring to the fence between their 2 houses] You see that fence?
Zach: Uh, yes...
Stine: [sternly] Stay on your side of it.
[Stine leaves the window]

Zach: [an army of lawn gnomes start popping out] Maybe, they're friendly. [1 lawn gnome throws a knife next to him, then its eyebrows turn angry] Not friendly! Definitely not friendly! [one lawn gnome jumps and starts to attack Stine, but Champ smashes it with a frying pan]

Zach: Alright, everyone, find anything you can to barricade the doors.
Hannah: We cannot let the monsters inside.

Zach: [referring to Hannah's dad] He's a big teddy bear.
Hannah: Don't take it personally. He doesn't really like anyone.

Hannah: [to Zach] C'mon, scaredy-cat!

Stine: As long as the books remained locked, we're safe, but when they open, Well, you've just seen what happens.

Mr. Black (The real R. L. Stine): Hello, Mr. Stine.
Mr. Stine: Hello, Mr. Black.
