  • [to Sally] So you got your choice. You can be crazy or dead.
  • [last line] It's a good scream. It's a good scream.


  • Ya know, the only trouble I ever got into was when I was TOO careful!


  • Sam: I didn't hire her for her scream, Jack, I hired her for her tits!


Jack Terry: Jesus, that's terrible.
Mixer: That's a terrible scream. Jack, what cat did you have to strangle to get that?
Jack Terry: The one you hired. That's her scream.
Mixer: You mean you didn't dub that?

Jack Terry: I'm trying to save our asses!
Sally: I'll look after my own ass, thank you.
