Halloween Quotes

Sunday, May 1 by George Root

Even though the main character in "Halloween" (1978) never spoke a word, there are still many "Halloween" quotes that people remember from the movie. Because the main character is silent but so prominent, people can often forget that there are several good "Halloween" quotes. The next time you watch the movie, see how many of these "Halloween" quotes you recognize.

  1. "It was the boogeyman" – Laurie Strode. When Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) uttered these words, she summed the whole movie up in one line. This is one of the more significant of the "Halloween" quotes as it was the one that most people remember.
  2. "This isn't a man." – Dr.  Loomis. Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance) was assigned to treat killer Michael Myers (Nick Castle) after Michael killed his sister. But what Loomis decided was that Michael was best left locked up than treated. When Sheriff Leigh Brackett (Charles Cyphers) asked what kind of man would kill like Michael Myers does, this was the "Halloween" quote that Loomis gave as an answer.
  3. "It's Halloween, everyone is entitled to one good scare." – Sheriff Leigh Brackett. When the sheriff bumps into Laurie as she is walking home, and after Michael Myers was seen stalking Laurie, he makes her jump. The "Halloween" quote he gives after he startles her is prophetic as to what happens for the rest of the movie.
  4. "Death has come to your little town, sheriff." – Dr. Loomis. Loomis attempts to warn the sheriff throughout the movie about the dangers of Michael Myers. When the sheriff will not listen, Loomis shifts to more menacing words such as this quote.
  5. "He came home." – Dr. Loomis. Because Dr. Loomis is the only one that seems to know what is going on in the movie, he gets a lot of the good movie quotes. As he is piecing together the trail of the escaped Michael Myers, Dr. Loomis suddenly realizes where Myers is headed. Michael Myers is going back to his hometown of Haddonfield and back to the house he was born in.
