Marge: You want to know who Fred Krueger was? He was a filthy child killer who got at least twenty kids, kids from our area, kids we all knew. It drove us all crazy when we didn't know who was doing it. But it was even worse when they caught him.
Nancy: What happened?
Marge Well, the lawyers got fat and the judge got famous, but someone forgot to sign the search warrant in the right place, and Fred Krueger was free, just like that. So a bunch of us parents tracked him down after they let him go. Found him in an old boiler room. We poured gasoline all around the place, left a trail out the door, locked the door, then let it burn. He's dead, Nan. He can't get you. Mommy killed him.

Nancy: I know you're there, Krueger.
Freddy: You think you was gonna get away from me?
Nancy: I know you too well now, Freddy.
Freddy: And now you die.
Nancy: It's too late, Krueger. I know the secret now. This is just a dream, too. You're not alive. The whole thing is a dream. I want my mother and friends again.
Freddy: You what?
Nancy: I take back every bit of energy I ever gave you. You're nothing. You're shit.

[about Tina] She dreamed this would happen. She had a nightmare about somebody trying to kill her last night. That's why we were there, Mom. She was afraid to sleep alone.

[to Glen] I asked you to do just one thing. Just stay awake and watch me. Just wake me if it looked like I was having a bad dream. And what did you do, you shit? (hits Glen's knee) You fell asleep.

I'm into survival.

[to Glen] Whatever you do, don't fall asleep.

[to Marge] His name is even in it, written right in here! Fred Krueger. Fred Krueger! You know who that is, Mom? You better tell me, cause now he's after me!

[preparing to sleep] Okay, Krueger, you bastard. We play in your court.

[to Freddy] Come out and show yourself, you bastard.

[to Freddy] Hey, can't catch me!

I'm gonna kill you slow.
