I love soul food. [Alice cries with fear, after Freddy eats Rick] Bring me more. [notices Debbie working out outside and laughs] Your shift is over.
  • [after healing a gaping wound in his chest and moving to kill Alice] I... am... eternal.
  • [imitating ninja trainer] A true warrior needs no eyes.

Debbie: Hey, yo, needle dick! I bet you're the only male in this school suffering from penis envy.

Debbie: How can you ride this health hazard? You know, it's no wonder that you have asthma.
Sheila: No, you see, asthma is an inherited condition. Read a book now and then, you might know something.

Kristen: [suddenly gets up, feeling drowsy instantly] What's wrong with me?
Elaine Parker: Adolescent anxiety... this will make it better.

Kristen: Jesus! Sleeping pills?!
Elaine Parker: Look Kristen I'm sorry it's just...
Kristen: Sorry?! Sorry after you and your tennis pals torched this guy and now he's after me?! In case you haven't been keeping score, it's his fucking banquet, and I'm the last course.

Kristen: Never! I'm the last!
Freddy: Why don't you reach out, and cut someone?
Kristen: No!

Alice: [Rick comes in and sits next to Alice, who is watching a video with Rick and Kristen in it in their happier days] You made her so happy then.
Rick: Yeah, before all this Freddy shit.
Alice: [Turns to Rick] You know, I saw it in my dream. Th-There was this horrible man--
Rick: [Interrupting Alice with a tone in his voice] Oh, who, Freddy? Freddy? Look, I don't want to hear about Freddy, okay. I heard it all from Kristen and I don't want to hear anymore. So just stop it.
Alice: I could smell the smoke. I can feel the fire. It wasn't a dream it was real!
Rick: I said stop it! She wasn't crazy and neither are you, so just stop it, please. God, why are you acting this way?

Dan: No. It's after every death.

Debbie: [in Alice's daydreams] Mm, there's Dan Jordan. Mm-hmm! We are talkin' one major-league hunk!
Alice: You know, you are one major-league hunk.
Dan: [laughs] Thanks, Alice.

Freddy: [in Sheila's dream] Wanna suck face?
Sheila: No!

Chorus Children: Now I lay me down to sleep. The Master of Dreams my soul will keep. In the reflection by my side...
