Dr. Sam Loomis[edit]

  • I shot him 6 times! I shot him in the heart-but... HE'S NOT HUMAN!

Dialogue[edit]

Doyle Neighbor: What's going on out here?
Dr. Loomis: Call the police! Tell the sheriff I shot him!
Doyle Neighbor: Who?
Dr. Loomis: Tell him, he's still on the loose!
Doyle Neighbor: Is this some kind of joke? I've been trick-or-treated to death tonight.
Dr. Loomis: [looks at the blood on his hand] You don't know what death is!

Sheriff Brackett: You know, doctor, I'm just about there.
Dr. Loomis: What?
Sheriff Brackett: The point where I stop taking orders from you.

Deputy Hunt: [getting out of a police car] Leigh? Leigh, they found three bodies.
Sheriff Brackett: Where?
Deputy Hunt: Across the street from the Doyle house. Three kids. Leigh, one of them was Annie!
Sheriff Brackett: [shocked] What?! [he, Deputy Hunt, and Dr. Loomis get in the car and drive off]

Jimmy: God, they should have handled him more carefully.
Laurie: Who?
Jimmy: Michael Myers.
Laurie: Michael Myers?
Jimmy: Yeah, he's the guy who was after you tonight.
Laurie: You mean from the Myers House? That little kid who killed his sister? But he's in a hospital somewhere!
Jimmy: He escaped last night.
Laurie: How do you know?
Jimmy: It's all over the radio. Television too, it's on right now.
Laurie: [gasps] Why me? I mean, why me?

Janet: Julie saw him, you know.
Budd: Who?
Janet: Michael Myers.
Budd: Come on...!
Janet: I swear, yesterday when she was coming to work.
Budd: Where'd she see him?
Janet: You know the Shop And Bag out by the mall? She stopped at the light and saw him walking in that field behind the Lost River Drive In. Julie said he was so creepy.
Budd: Julie's full of shit. He didn't escape until last night.
Janet: You don't have to swear about it.
Budd: She's a goddamn moron anyway.
Janet: Every other word you say is either hell or shit or damn.
Budd: Sorry. I guess I just fuck up all the time.

Deputy Hunt: [as he, Sheriff Brackett, and Dr. Loomis get out of the car and approach the Wallace house] Not now.
Sheriff Brackett: [after positively identifying his deceased daughter Annie and sadly closing her eyes before she is taken away] I uh... have to... uh... go and tell my wife before somebody else does.
Deputy Hunt: Go on home, Leigh. Go on home. I'll take care of everything.
Sheriff Brackett: [glares at Dr. Loomis] Damn you!
Dr. Loomis: I'm sorry.
Sheriff Brackett: What have you done?!
Dr. Loomis: I haven't done anything.
Sheriff Brackett: YOU LET HIM OUT!
Dr. Loomis: [as Sheriff Brackett angrily leaves] I didn't let him out; I gave orders for him to be restrained.
Deputy Hunt: Now, is there anything else that we can do for you?
Dr. Loomis: If that wasn't Michael Myers burning up in that car, then a lot of other kids are going to be slaughtered tonight.
Deputy Hunt: He's dead. You saw it.
Dr. Loomis: I saw a man in a mask.
Deputy Hunt: It was him.
Dr. Loomis: I want to believe you, but I have to be sure. I cannot stop until I'm certain he's dead.
Deputy Hunt: You're talking about him like he's some kind of animal.
Dr. Loomis: He was my patient for fifteen years. He became an obsession with me until I realized that there was nothing within him, neither conscious nor reason nor that was... even remotely human. An hour ago I stood up and fired six shots into him and then he just got up and walked away. I am talking about the real possibility that he is STILL OUT THERE!

Officer: [as he, Deputy Hunt, and Dr. Loomis examine a broken window at the elementary school] He got in here. And here.
Dr. Loomis: [after seeing a drawing Michael made of him and his family with the stolen knife protruding from a stick figure of Judith] Sister.
Deputy Hunt: Is that it?
Officer: No. Here. [as they approach the blackboard, a car pulls up in front of the school; Marion Chambers gets out of the car, along with a Marshal]
Deputy Hunt: What's this?
Officer: It's gibberish.
Dr. Loomis: No. It's a Celtic word. Samhain. It means "the lord of the dead." The end of summer. October 31st. The festival of Samhain.
Marion: [entering the classroom] Dr. Loomis?
Dr. Loomis: Yes?
Marion: I have to talk to you.
Dr. Loomis: Oh, I didn't recognize you. What are you doing here?
Marion: Privately. [Dr. Loomis follows her out of the room; in the hallway, he lights a cigarette in her mouth] Thanks. Dr. Loomis, you've been ordered back to Smith's Grove.
Dr. Loomis: Ordered? He can't order me.
Marion: No. No. But the governor can. He spoke to Dr. Rogers personally a few hours ago.
Dr. Loomis: [feigning surprise] The governor... [laughs] Well, well.
Marion: Dr. Loomis, this thing is all over the state: Patient escapes once, murders three teenagers, you shoot him with a gun, he escapes again.
Dr. Loomis: Someone should've listened to me earlier.
Marion: I know. I'm sorry. Dr. Rogers is just afraid this could jeopardize our whole rehabilitation program. He doesn't want anyone from the mental health department anywhere near Haddonfield.
Dr. Loomis: Why'd he send you down here, then?
Marion: In case you'd already found him... alive.
Dr. Loomis: Tell Dr. Rogers... tell him you couldn't find me, tell him anything. I can't leave Haddonfield now.
Marion: I'm afraid you don't have a choice. There's a Marshal waiting for you outside.

Deputy Hunt: [as he, Marion, and Dr. Loomis walk out of the school] We'll find him.
Dr. Loomis: Where are you going to look?
Deputy Hunt: [with uncertainty] I don't know.
Dr. Loomis: Neither do I. [Dr. Loomis reluctantly walks to the Marshal, who guides him to the car; he and Marion get in the back as the Marshal gets in and starts the engine; Deputy Hunt uneasily watches as they drive off]

Dr. Loomis: [as he, Marion, and the Marshal drive out of Haddonfield] You didn't believe me, nobody did.
Marion: I'm sorry.
Dr. Loomis: Don't feel sorry for me, feel sorry for that little town back there; it'll be years before they forget this. Did you see the blackboard back there in the elementary school?
Marion: Yeah.
Dr. Loomis: In order to appease the gods, the Druid priests held fire rituals. Prisoners of war, criminals, the insane, animals... were... burned alive in baskets. By observing the way they died, the Druids believed they could see omens of the future. Two thousand years later, we've come no further. Samhain isn't evil spirits. It isn't goblins, ghosts or witches. It's the unconscious mind. We're all afraid of the dark inside ourselves.
Marion: Dr. Loomis, please, listen to me; this is very important. There's a file on Michael Myers that nobody knew about.
Dr. Loomis: I've seen everything.
Marion: No! No. It was hidden, sealed by the court after his parents were killed. Now after the Governor heard what happened tonight, he authorized Dr. Rogers to open it.
Dr. Loomis: What file?
Marion: This isn't fair. They should've allowed you to examine everything. That girl, that Strode girl, that's Michael Myers' sister! She was born two years before he was committed. Two years after, his parents died, and she was adopted by the Strodes. They requested that the records be sealed in order to protect the family!
Dr. Loomis: [realizing why Michael returned home to Haddonfield] Don't you see what he's doing here in Haddonfield?! He killed one sister fifteen years ago, now he's trying to kill the other! Tonight, after I shot him, where did they take her?
Marion: The clinic.
Dr. Loomis: The clinic, where-- [To the marshal] Do you know this area well?
Marshal: A little bit.
Dr. Loomis: Where is the hospital located?
Marion: Dr. Loomis, we're under orders from the governor!
Marshal: It's back on Route 17, about 3 miles.
Dr. Loomis: Turn this car around now!
Marshal: I can't do that. I've got orders.
Dr. Loomis: [pulls out his pistol and points it at the marshal] Those orders just changed!
Marion Chambers: Dr. Loomis!
Marshal: [calmly] Doctor, you're getting yourself into a lot of trouble.
Dr. Loomis: What is it you fellows usually do? Fire a warning shot, right? [shoots out window. The marshal stops the car and turns it around]

Dr. Loomis: [he, Marion, and the Marshal have just arrived at the hospital] I ought to handcuff you to the wheel, but I have a feeling I'm going to need you in there. Can I trust you?
Marshal: What have I got to lose, except my job?

Dispatcher: Unit calling, identify.
Marion: Marion Chambers with Dr. Loomis at the clinic - he's here!
Dispatcher: Ah, ten-four. Unit calling, identify suspect.
Marion: Michael Myers! Just get your ass over here!

Dr. Loomis: I'm sorry I left you. Are you all right?
Laurie: Why won't he die?
