Before you die, you see…the ring. (taglines)

Rachel Keller

  • I think before you die, you see the ring...
  • She wanted that child more than anything in the world. How could she have done that? She just wanted to be heard. Sometimes children yell, or cry... or draw pictures.

Aidan Keller

  • She's in the dark place now.
  • Don't you understand, Rachel? She never sleeps.
  • What will we tell the others who watch it?

Samara Morgan

  • 7 days.
  • Here we go, the world is spinning. When it stops, it's just beginning. Sun comes up, we all laugh. Sun goes down, we all die...
  • I love my mommy.
  • Everyone will suffer.


Katie: Becca, quit being a bitch.
Ruth: I spent four hours on the internet and I couldn't find one single case of a 16-year-old girl's heart just stopping. I spoke to three different doctors and not one of them could tell me exactly what happened to my daughter.
Noah: That was very student film.
Richard Morgan: What is it with reporters? You take one person's tragedy and force the world to experience it... spread it like sickness
Anna Morgan: All I ever wanted was you.


Katie: Did you know that millions of radio waves are passing through our brains every minutes that it makes our brain molecules unstable. Television companies know but doesn't do a thing about it.
Becca: This is more weird. Have you heard of a videotape. You start to play it and it's like somebody's nightmare. Then, there's a woman smiling at you. Then, when the tape's over, the phone rings. As if somebody knows you watched it and it says "seven days" then seven days later…

Teacher: Yes I know but these pictures.
Rachel: Are Aidan's way of working it out. He'll be okay.
Teacher: [referring to Katie] You said that she died 3 days ago?
Rachel: Yes.
Teacher: Aidan drew these last week.

Rachel: Would you say that I'm gullible?
Noah: No.
Rachel: Easily rattled?
Noah: Definitely not. I mean, you're a little highly strung maybe.

Rachel: He watched the tape.
Noah: Who? who watched it?
Rachel: Our son

Rachel: Honey, the house you drew for me...
Aidan: Uh huh.
Rachel: Where did you see it? Did you see it in your head? Is that why you drew it?
Aidan: In my head?
Rachel: Aidan, why did you draw that house?
Aidan: 'Cause she told me to.
Rachel: Who? Who told you to?
Aidan: The little girl.
Rachel: She talks to you?
Aidan: No, she shows me things.
Rachel: Did she show you the horses?
Aidan: She doesn't like it in the barn. The horses keep her up at night.
Rachel: So she still lives there?
Aidan: No, she lives in a dark place now.

Dr. Grasnik: See, when you live on an island you catch a cold, it's everybody's cold.
Rachel: No offense, ma'am, but what the hell does that mean?
Dr. Grasnik: It means ever since that girl's been gone, things have been better.

Library Clerk: 1978. Man, we're really going back in time, here.
Noah: Yeah, lady at reception said it should still be here.
Library Clerk: Should be. You say you're the patient's father, right?
Noah: Yep, Richard Morgan, that's me.
Library Clerk: What is your secret?
Noah: Diet and exercise, man.
Library Clerk: No shit.
Noah: Yeah, that's all it takes.
Library Clerk: You know, I'm not an idiot. You try and walk out of here with my file, and I'll be on you like white on rice, you understand?

Rachel: What did you do to her? She was your daughter! You killed Samara, didn't you? You killed her and when your wife found out...
Richard Morgan: My wife was not supposed to have a child!

Noah: I can't imagine being stuck down a well all alone like that. How long could you survive?
Rachel: Seven days.

Aidan: What happened to the girl?
Rachel: Samara?
Aidan: Is that her name?
Rachel: Mm-hmm.
Aidan: Is she still in the dark place?
Rachel: No. We set her free.
Aidan: You helped her?
Rachel: Yeah.
Aidan: Why did you do that?
Rachel: What's wrong, honey?
Aidan: You weren't supposed to help her.

Dr. Scott: You don't want to hurt anyone.
Samara Morgan: But I do, and I'm sorry. It won't stop.


  • Before you die, you see…the ring.
  • In the well, no one will see...
  • Everyone will suffer!
  • Did she show you the horses?
