- [slams on the brakes] Let me tell you something about Steve King. Steve King wishes he could write like me. and I've sold way more books than him, but nobody ever talks about that! Way more books!
- Okay, look... Where do I begin? When I was younger, I suffered from terrible allergies that kept me indoors. And all the kids threw rocks at my window and called me names. So I created my own friends - monsters, demons, ghouls, to terrorize my neighborhood and all the kids that made fun of me. And they became real to me, and then one day, they actually... became real. My monsters literally leapt off the page. As long as the books remain locked, we're safe, but when they open... well, you've just seen what happens.
- Every story ever told can be broken down into three parts: the beginning… the middle… and the twist.
- Well, my mom said to me, "Zach, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?" And I said, "Can we please move to Madison, Delaware?" That'd be my dream.
- You see the endings coming from a mile away, its like, stop trying to be Stephen King man...
- Zach, it's time to move on, now open the book, scaredy cat.
- Y'know how they say teenagers have no fear of death? That they're never gonna get hurt? Well not me, OK? I was born with the gift of fear.
- Champion: The Abominable Snowman just crawl out of a book, that doesn't just happen!
- R. L. Stine: You just released every monster I've ever created!
- Champ: What was that?
- Stine: It's the Invisible Boy.
- Champ: [getting slapped by Brent the Invisible Boy] Ow!
- Stine: Ah, he's such a crack up.
- [Zach has called in the police to investigate screams coming from Stine's house, but they are revealed to be from his television]
- Stine: Surround sound. I didn't know being an audiophile was a crime.
- Officer Brooks: Being a what... a what-a-phile?!
- Officer Stevens: [calming her] Whoa, whoa, whoa. That just means that he is a connoisseur of high-end audio equipment.
- Officer Brooks: Oh.
- [during a chase in the grocery store, the werewolf crashes in an aisle of food, then R. L. Stine trips and gets placed in a shopping cart, and Zach pushes the cart]
- Robert: What are you doing? Get me out! [the werewolf starts coming after Zach and Stine] Oh, no, no, no, no, no, keep going!
- Hannah: [quietly] Did you unlock a book?
- Zach Cooper: I'm sorry. I'll put it back where it belongs. Look, here it is.
- Hannah: No, don't open it! [Zach accidentally opens a manuscript which releases the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena, the Abominable Snowman touches a light of a ceiling lamp, which stings his finger] [whispering] Nobody make a sound. [Champ screams in terror which the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena hears him, then he starts to charge at him, but Zach pushes him aside, then the Abominable Snowman breaks out of the house]
- Hannah: So you're the new neighbor?
- Zach: Yeah. I'm Zach, by the way.
- Hannah: I'm Hannah.
- Stine: [from behind her] Hannah!
- Hannah: I gotta go.
- [R. L. Stine appears at the window]
- Zach: Hey, we're just moving in.
- Stine: [referring to the fence between their 2 houses] You see that fence?
- Zach: Uh, yes...
- Stine: [sternly] Stay on your side of it.
- [Stine leaves the window]
- Zach: [an army of lawn gnomes start popping out] Maybe, they're friendly. [1 lawn gnome throws a knife next to him, then its eyebrows turn angry] Not friendly, definitely not friendly! [one lawn gnome jumps and starts to attack Stine, but Champ smashes it with a frying pan]
- Zach: Alright, everyone, find anything you can to barricade the doors.
- Hannah: We cannot let the monsters inside.
- Zach: [referring to Hannah's dad] He's a big teddy bear.
- Hannah: Don't take it personally. He doesn't really like anyone.
- Hannah: [to Zach] C'mon, scaredy-cat!
- Stine: As long as the books remained locked, we're safe, but when they open, Well, you've just seen what happens.
