Sometimes dead is better.  (taglines)

Louis Creed[edit]

  • Today is thanksgiving day for cats, but only if they came back from the dead.
  • God sees the truth... But waits.

Jud Crandall[edit]

  • The soil of a man's heart is stonier, Louis. A man grows what he can, and he tends it. 'Cause what you buy, is what you own. And what you own... always comes home to you.

Victor Pascow[edit]

  • The barrier was not meant to be crossed. The ground is sour.

Other[edit]

  • Ellie: [crying, after Church dies] But he's not God's cat, he's my cat... let God get his own if he wants one... not mine... not mine.
  • Irwin Goldman: [at Gage's funeral; to Louis] I knew this would happen. I told her when you were first married you'd have all the grief you can stand and more, I said. Now look at this. I hope you rot in hell! Where were you when he was playing in the road? You stinkin' shit! You killer of children! [punches Louis]
  • Zelda Goldman: Rachel, is that you? I've been waiting for you, Rachel. And now I'm going to twist your back like mine, so you'll never get out of bed again... Never get out of bed again! Never get out of bed again!
  • Zelda Goldman: I'm coming for you, Rachel... And this time, I'll get you... Gage, and I, will get you. For letting us die... [she cackles]

Dialogue[edit]

Louis Creed: Has anyone ever buried a person up there?
Jud Crandall: Christ on his throne no. Who ever would?

Louis Creed: I'll bite Jud. What's the bottom of the truth?
Jud Crandall: Well sometimes, dead is better. The person you put up there ain't the person that comes back. It might look like that person, but it ain't that person, because whatever lives on the ground beyond the Pet Sematary ain't human at all.

Rachel: It's okay, Ellie! You just had a bad dream.
Ellie: It wasn't a dream, it was Paxcow! Paxcow says daddy is going to do something really bad!
Rachel: Who is this Paxcow?
Ellie: He's a ghost! He's a good ghost! He was sent to warn us!

Gage Creed: [on the phone] First I play with Judd, then mommy came, and I play with mommy. We play daddy, we had a awful good time! Now, I want to play with you...
Louis Creed: What did you do?
[Gage laughs wickedly]
Louis Creed: WHAT DID YOU DO?!

Victor Pascow: I'm sorry Louis, I'm so sorry, but don't make it worse! Don't!
Louis Creed: I waited too long with Gage. But with Rachel... it will work this time! Because she just died, she just died a little while ago!
Victor Pascow: Please! Louis! No!

Taglines[edit]
