Steve: Somethin's funny goin' on here next door. Somethin', uh --
Diane: We were wondering if maybe you had experienced any disturbances lately? ... Oh you know, like dishes or furniture moving around by themselves.


Steve: Tomorrow I'm going to call someone --
Diane: Oh yeah? Who, for instance? I already looked in the Yellow Pages. "Furniture Movers" we got; "Strange Phenomenon", there's no listing.

Steve: You know Teague, he won't take "Go to Hell" for an answer.
Diane: What are you going to do?
Steve: I'm gonna give him directions.

Tangina: Help me tie this around my waist.
Diane: What do you think you're doing?
Tangina: I'm going in after her.
Diane: She won't come to you. Let me go.
Tangina: You've never done this before.
Diane: Neither have you.
Tangina: [pause] You're right. You go.

Tangina: I'd give my strongest feeling. The point of origin is in the child's closet upstairs.
Diane: Yes, I believe that too.
Tangina: Honey, are you gonna be strong for me and for your daughter? I can do absolutely nothing without your faith in this world and your love for the children.
Diane: I will, believe me I will.
Tangina: And will you do anything I ask, even if it comes contrary to your beliefs as a human being and a Christian?
Diane: Yes, I promise, please.
Tangina: There is no death. It is only a transition to a different sphere of consciousness. Carol Anne is not like those she's with. She's a living presence in their spiritual, earth-bound plane. They're attracted to the one thing about her that's different from themselves. Her life-force - it is very strong. It gives off its own illumination. It is a light that implies life and memory of love and home and earthly pleasures, something they desperately desire but can't have anymore. Right now, she's the closest thing to that, and that is a terrible distraction from the real light that has finally come for them. Do you understand me? These souls who for whatever reason are not at rest are also not aware that they have passed on. They're not part of consciousness as we know it. They're in a perpetual dream state, a nightmare from which they cannot wake. Inside this spectral light is salvation - a window to the next plane. They must pass through this membrane with friends who are waiting to guide them to new destinies. Carol Anne must help them cross over, and she will only hear her mother's voice. Now, hold onto your selves. There's one more thing - a terrible presence is in there with her. So much rage, so much betrayal. I've never sensed anything like it. I don't know what hovers over this house, but it was strong enough to punch a hole into this world and take your daughter away from you. It keeps Carol Anne very close to it and away from the spectral light. It lies to her. It says things only a child can understand. He's been using her to restrain the others. To her, it simply is another child. To us, it is the Beast. Now let's go get your daughter.

Tangina: You can't choose between life and death when we're dealing with what is in between. Now tell her before it's too late.
Diane: Run to the light, baby. Mommy is in the light.
Tangina: Tell her you're waiting for her.
Diane: Mommy's waiting for you in the light. [under her breath to Tangina] I hate you for that.

No, don't touch my baby!

Run to the light, Carol Anne. Run as fast as you can! Mommy is in the light! Mommy is waiting for you in the light.

[Bodies begin shooting out of his house & yard; to Teague] You son of a bitch, you moved the cemetery but you left the bodies, didn't you? You son of a bitch, you left the bodies and you only moved the headstones!! YOU ONLY MOVED THE HEADSTONES!!! WHY?! WHY?!

[Diane says she has never done this before] You're right. You go.

[readying her deceased pet bird for burial in his eternal cigar box] For when he's hungry ... for when he's lonely ... and when it's nightime.

[Steven is trying to pull Diane out of the closet] Steven, not yet!

[to the TV] Hello? What do you look like? Talk louder, I can't hear you! Hey, hello! Hello, I can't hear you! Five. Yes. Yes. I don't know. I don't know.

A three meter board is like an air pocket, sweetheart. When you dive off, it's like free-falling.

Bastards, she's just a baby! Help her, help her. Can't you hear what's happening? Help her.
