Mrs. Snell: I'll drink to that.

Mrs. Snell: Mrs. White, I like to contribute five... ten dollars.
Margaret White: I see. I pray you find Jesus.

Carrie White: [coming down from upstairs, Margaret has called her down after the phone call she received] Mama? Who was that, that called?
Margaret White: You're a woman now.
Carrie White: Why didn't you tell me, Mama?
[Margaret strikes her over the head with the "Woman's Bible" and begins to read a verse]
Margaret White: [reading] And God made Eve from the rib of Adam. And Eve was weak and loosed the raven on the world. And the raven was called sin. Say it, the raven was called sin.
Carrie White: Why didn't you tell me, Mama?
Margaret White: Say it. [hits Carrie in the face] The raven was called sin. [hits her again]
Carrie White: No, Mama.
[Margaret hits her again]
Carrie White: And the raven was called sin!
Margaret White: And the first sin was intercourse. The first sin was intercourse.
Carrie White: I didn't sin, Mama.
Margaret White: Say it. [hits her again]
Carrie White: I didn't sin, Mama!
Margaret White: The first sin was intercourse. The first sin was intercourse. The first sin was intercourse.
Carrie White: And the first sin was intercourse! Mama, I was so scared. I thought I was dying . And the girls, they all laughed at me and threw things at me, Mama.
Margaret White: [hits her again] And Eve was weak, say it!
Carrie White: No!
Margaret White: Eve was weak!
Carrie White: No!
Margaret White: Eve was weak! Say it, woman!
Carrie White: No!
Margaret White: Say it!
Carrie White: Eve was weak. Eve was weak.
Margaret White: And the Lord visited Eve with the curse, and the curse was the curse of blood!
Carrie White: You should have told me, Mama! You should have told me!
Margaret White: [kneels down and grabs Carrie's hand] Oh, Lord! Help this sinning woman see the sin of her days and ways. Show her that if she had remained sinless, this curse of blood would never have come down on her!

Chris Hargensen: Don't be in such a hurry.
Billy Nolan: Don't be in such a hurry. I'm hurrying away from you, you know that?
Chris Hargensen: No, you're not.
Billy Nolan: Pain right in the ass.

Chris Hargensen: I want you do something.
Billy Nolan: What?
Chris Hargensen: Something important. [unzips Billy's pants and performs oral sex on him] Oh, Billy. Billy. Oh, Billy. Oh, Billy. Billy. Oh, Billy. Oh. Oh, Billy. I hate Carrie White.
Billy Nolan: Who?

Margaret White: Carrie, you haven't touched your apple cake.
Carrie White: It gives me pimples, Mama.
Margaret White: Pimples are the Lord's way of chastising you.
Carrie White: [after long pause] Mama?
Margaret White: Yeah.
Carrie White: Mama, please say that I've to try and get along with people better.
Margaret White: [giggles] What are you going on about, Carrie?
Carrie White: I've been invited to the prom.
Margaret White: [long pause, then looking sternly at Carrie] Prom?
Carrie White: Yeah, the prom. Everyone's goin--
Margaret White: It was that teacher that called, wasn't it?
Carrie White: Please see that I'm not like you, Mama, I'm fummy... [weird] I mean, all the kids think I'm funny, and I don't wanna be. I wanna be normal, I wanna start to try me, a whole person, before it's too late for me to--.
[Margaret throws tea on her face, Carrie wipes it off]
Carrie White: His name is Tommy Ross, and he's a very nice boy, Mama
Margaret White: No.
Carrie White: And he promised to come in and meet you--
Margaret White: I said no.
Carrie White: --and he'd have me home by midnight and--
Margaret White: No, no, no, no!
Carrie White: I've accepted, Mama! I accepted it!
Margaret White: Go to your closet!
Carrie White: No!
Margaret White: [pause] After all you've been taught, Carrie
Carrie White: Everything isn't bad, Mama! Everything isn't a sin!
Margaret White: Go to your closet and pray, ask to be forgiven.

Margaret White: Witch. Got Satan's Power.
Carrie White: It has nothing to do with Satan, Mama. It's me. Me. If I concentrate hard enough, I can move things.
Margaret White: You must renounce that power. You must never use it.

Margaret White: [referring to Carrie's prom gown] Red. I might have known it would be red.
Carrie White: It's pink, Mama. [presenting her corsage] Look what Tommy gave me, Mama. Aren't they beautiful?
Margaret White: I can see your dirty pillows. Everyone will.
Carrie White: Breasts, Mama. They're called breasts, and every woman has them.

Billy Nolan: That Carrie White, she sure is cute.
Chris Hargensen: Shut up.
Billy Nolan: I thought you said they were gonna win.
Chris Hargensen: They will. It won't even be close. I called in a few favors.

Carrie White: It was bad, Mama. They laughed at me. Hold me, Mama. Please hold me.
Margaret White: I should've killed myself when he put it in me. After the first time, before we were married, Ralph promised never again. He promised and I believed him. But sin never dies. Sin never dies. At first it was all right. We lived sinlessly. We slept in the same bed, but we never did it. And then, that night, I saw him looking down at me that way. We got down on our knees to pray for strength. I smelled the whiskey on his breath. Then he took me. He took me, with the filthy roadhouse whiskey on his breath, and I liked it. I liked it! With all that dirty touching of his hands all over me. I should've given you to God when you were born, but I was weak and backsliding, and now the devil has come home. We'll pray.
Carrie White: Yes.
Margaret White: We'll pray. We'll pray. We'll pray for the last time. We'll pray.

Miss Collins: The period's not up Hargenson.
Chris Hargenson: It is for me.
Miss Collins: (to the other girls) Keep running! Well there are ten minutes left.
Chris Hargenson: Stick them up your... (Miss Collins smacks her)
Chris Hargenson: You can't hit us! You'll get canned for this you bitch!
Miss Collins: One more word out of you and i'm gonna knock you down! Do you understand me?
Chris Hargenson: She can't get away with this if we all stick together! Norma? Helen? Sue!
Sue Snell: Shut up Chris. Just shut up.
Chris Hargenson: This isn't over. This isn't over by a long shot!
Miss Collins: You're out of the prom, Hargenson. Okay, the show's over. In place. Run! One, two. One, two. One two.
