- Cal: Morning, Ethel. My, don't you look lovely today.
- Ethel: Now, Sheriff, you better hear me, and hear me good. I want this looney bin closed down. You hear me, fella? Now these kids ain't nothing but trouble. They don't respect other's property, and they're all crazy!
- Junior: You tell 'em, Ma! Ha-hah.
- Cal: Ethel, these kids weren't doing...
- Ethel: Doing? Doing? You think I don't know what those two perverts were doing in my yard?
- Junior: Say it like you mean it, Ma!
- Ethel: Would you shut up?
- [The kids laugh for a minute]
- Ethel: Now, I'm going to tell all of you. You mark my words, the next little pervert that comes near my farm, I'm gonna blow your brains out. You hear me?
- Tucker: [approaching] Now, Ethel...
- Ethel: Don't you come near me, Sheriff, I warn you! I got a bomb on me. I swear to ya. You make one move toward me, I'm gonna blow us all up. Start the engines, Junior!
- [gets on motorbike]
- Ethel: That's it. My final words.

- Cal: What the hell's going on here?
- Roy Burns: You talkin' to me, Sheriff?
- Cal: What?
- Roy: Oh, I thought you was talkin' to me.
- Cobb: I don't care if you have to put your mother behind bars! Get me the damn psycho who's responsible for this mess!! What the hell's goin' on here?! I mean, this is a small town, man, and small towns are supposed to be safe!
- Cal: I know who it is.
- Cobb: What?
- Cal: I said I know who it is.
- Cobb: Who?
- Cal: It's Jason Voorhees.
- Cobb: Jason Voorhees? You're out of your mind. You've been out in the sun too long. Jason Voorhees is dead! His body was cremated. He's nothing but a handful of ash.
- Cal: [Tucker stands up firmly] You know that for sure, Mayor? Were you there? Did you see him cremated?
- Cobb: Jason Voorhees? [Tucker nods] I can't believe this! Look. [pulls out an ashtray] This is your "Jason Voorhees" here. [pours ashes out] This! [plants ashes in Tucker's hand] You're on the line here, Tucker. Are you getting that?
- [Cobb exits. Tucker, enraged, breaks the ashtray by throwing it against the wall]
- Vinnie: This is a mess. Now way. I refuse to do this! You understand? Pete!
- [Pete honks the horn loudly, startling Vinnie. He then begins to laugh]
- Pete: Aww, what's the matter, Vinnie? You scared of the dark? You all creeped out by that murder at the nuthouse?
- Vinnie: Oh, yeah. Sure. Look, as far as I'm concerned, all those loonies should be killed off one by one. Can you try it now?
- Pete: [engine is not starting] Geez, man. Can't you do anything? Stop screwing around! Get this thing done by the time I get back.
- Vinnie: I refuse to do this!
- Pete: Just do it, man. I mean it.
- [Pete walks away]
- Demon: You're going to get it!
- Anita: Lighten up, Demon.
- Demon: I'll feel a lot better when I'm out of here. This is gross.
- Ethel: That is one ugly man that goes there.

- Junior: I ain't so pretty myself, I know.
