Scream 2 is a 1997 film, the second part of the Scream trilogy. As with the other films in the trilogy, Scream 2 combines straight-forward scares with dialogue that satirizes conventions of slasher films, in this case slasher film sequels.

Directed by Wes Craven. Written by Kevin Williamson.


Maureen Evans: Why does she have to be naked? What does that have to do with the plot of the storyline of her being butt-ass naked?
Phil Stevens: I don't know, but I'm feeling a little stiffy.
Maureen Evans: You better loosen up that wrist!
Casey Becker: [in the movie Stab] Hello?
Phone Voice: Hello.
Casey Becker: Who is this?
Phone Voice: Guess.
Casey Becker: No, really, who is this?
Phone Voice: Were you expecting somebody?
Casey Becker: No.
Maureen Evans: Bitch! Hang up the phone and star 69 his ass, damn!

(Everyone shushes Maureen including Phil Stevens)

Casey Becker: Who is this?
Phone Voice: Who would you like it to be?
Casey Becker: I don't like games. Who is this?
Phone Voice: Look out back. Do you see your boyfriend anywhere?
Casey Becker: I don't even have a boyfriend right now.
Phone Voice: Would you like one?
Maureen Evans: (To Phil) Can I- Give me some money. I need to buy something.
Phil Stevens: You got money.
Maureen Evans: I've got my money! I ask for your money!
Phone Voice: What do you say?
Phil Stevens: (Annoyed) Cheap ass!
Maureen Evans: (Singing) Thank you!
Phone Voice: Come on. Cat got your tongue?
Casey Becker: You know, I don't even know you, and I dislike you already.

Debbie Salt: Excuse me, Ms. Weathers? Um? Could I have a minute?
Gale Weathers: No.
Debbie Salt: Just one second. I-I know you probably get this all the time, but I just wanted to say I am such a big fan of your work. I just finished your book. I-I couldn't put it down. Insightful, probing... I just really, really loved your book.
Gale Weathers: Thank you.
Debbie Salt: Sure
Gale Weathers: Thanks. [she is about to leave, but Debbie follows her]
Debbie Salt: I'm a writer myself. I write for the local paper, for the Post Telegram. I'm Debbie Salt. [shakes Gale's hand] I took your seminar in Chicago last year. I was the one in the front row asking all the questions.
Gale Weathers: Right. I thought you looked familiar.
Debbie Salt: Oh, thank you. Um, can't wait to see the movie. You know, you must be getting quite a lot of flak on that, right? I mean, with all the violence-in-cinema issues. What is your position going to be?
Gale Weathers: No comment.
[Gale leaves, as Debbie keeps following her]
Debbie Salt: Miss Weathers, please... I-I would... It would be such an honor for me if I could just get a quote from you for my story.--- [Gale stops]
Gale Weathers: Okay. Begin quote:
Debbie Salt: Great.
Gale Weathers: [quoting] "Your flattering remarks are both desperate and obvious."
[Gale walks away, leaving Debbie speechless]

Gale Weathers: Hello, Sidney.
[Sidney turns to Gale with Joel who began to record their interview]
Gale Weathers: How are you?
Sidney Prescott: Hi... What do you want, Gale?
Gale Weathers: Well, I was hoping I might get just a few words with you.
[Cotton appears]
Sidney Prescott: Cotton.
Cotton Weary: Hi, Sidney.
[Gale starts her report, while Joel is recording]
Gale Weathers: [reporting] "Here we are at Windsor College, where Sidney Prescott has just been reunited with Cotton Weary for the first time, since she wrongly accused him of murdering her mother."---
Sidney Prescott: [interrupts her interview] What the hell are you doing?
Gale Weathers: We want to know how you feel? [continues her interview] Tell us everything that's happened, looking back on the last two years?
[Gale aims her microphone to Cotton, who began to talk to Sidney]
Cotton Weary: Uh Sidney, I'd just like to say that I forgive and forget. And just like you, I'd like to get back on with my own life.
Gale Weathers: [reporting] Do you have any comments?
Sidney Prescott: You... bitch!--- [lunging at Gale]
Gale Weathers: Ah-ah.
Derek Feldman: [stops Sidney and calms her down] Whoa, Hey, hey, hey hey, Deep breaths, Lot of deep breaths.
[Sidney began to leave]
Gale Weathers: Oh Sidney, share with us, please!--- [Sidney turns around and punches Gale in the face]
Sidney Prescott: [lunges at Gale] I'll share with you!
[Derek manage to grab Sidney away from Gale]
Derek Feldman: Okay, okay, okay.
[Hallie walks to Joel]
Hallie McDaniel: [to Joel] Did you get that on film?
Joel: [mocks Hallie while recording] "Yes, I got that on film"!

Cici's Friend: [on phone] I love those guys. Are they still together? I haven't seen it in, like, three weeks.
Cici Cooper: No, they broke up again.
Cici's Friend: [on phone] Really?
Cici Cooper: Mm-hmm. Sarah found out that Bailey slept with Gwen. She dumped him, like, two episodes ago.
Cici's Friend: [on phone] I wish she'd get her shit together.
[phone rings, tied on her phone to her friend]
Cici Cooper: Hold on. Someone's calling. [hangs up the call to her friend; shifts to talk to someone] Omega Beta Zeta.
Phone Voice: Hello?
Cici Cooper: Yes?
Phone Voice: Who is this?
Cici Cooper: Cici. Who's this?
Phone Voice: Who do you think?
Cici Cooper: Ted? Where are you? Are you drinking? Hold on. [shifts to her friend's call] Ted's on the other line. He sounds drunk. I'll call you back.
Cici's Friend: [on phone] That shit only calls you when he's drunk. Don't go over there, Cici.
Cici Cooper: Okay, All right. I'll call you back. [shifts back to someone's call] Okay, Ted. You sound loaded. What's up?
Phone Voice: Who's Ted?
Cici Cooper: Oh, I'm sorry. My bad. I thought you were someone else.
Phone Voice: That's okay. I am.
Cici Cooper: Who are you calling for? Nobody's here.
Phone Voice: Where is everybody?
Cici Cooper: We're cosponsorlng the acid rain mixer at Phi Gamma Alpha tonight.
Phone Voice: Why aren't you there?
Cici Cooper: I'm "sober sister". I need to be here in case a drunk sister calls and needs a ride.
Phone Voice: That's too bad.
Cici Cooper: "Drink with your brain." That's our motto. Who are you calling for?
Phone Voice: What if I said you?
Cici Cooper: What if I said goodbye?
Phone Voice: Why would you want to do that?
Cici Cooper: Why do you always answer a question with a question?
Phone Voice: I'm inquisitive.
Cici Cooper: Yeah, and I'm impatient. Look, do you want to leave a message for someone?
Phone Voice: Do you want to die tonight, Cici?
[Cici's eyes widen in shock]

[The phone rings. Cici's friend Dawnie answers it]
Dawnie: Omega Beta Zeta.
Phone Voice: Is Cici there?
Dawnie: Mm-hm. Who's calling?
Phone Voice: It's Ted.
Dawnie: [to Cici] It's your ill-conceived boyfriend. [Gives her the phone] Okay, so, I'll see you later, and don't forget to set the alarm. Bye.
[She leaves. Cici answers the phone]
Cici Cooper: Hello, Ted.
Phone Voice: You wish it was Ted. [Cici's eyes widen in shock] "Don't forget to set the alarm."

[Sidney picks up the phone]
Sidney Prescott: Hello?
Phone Voice: Hello, Sidney. Remember me?
Sidney Prescott: What do you want?
Phone Voice: I want you. It's showtime.
Sidney Prescott: So, why don't you show your face, you fucking coward?
Phone Voice: My pleasure. [Ghostface reveals himself]

[Gale smokes a cigarette, stops, turns to Dewey and Randy]
Gale Weathers: Sorry. All right, let's just assume the killer is repeating Woodsboro...
[Gale's phone rings; she answers it]
Gale Weathers: Yes?
Gale's Agent: [on the phone] I have Bob calling.
Gale Weathers: I'll have to call you back. [hangs up phone]
Randy Meeks: That doesn't explain Sidney's attack. Sidney wasn't killed in Woodsboro. Wasn't for a lack of trying. The killer is trying to finish what was started.
Gale Weathers: Well, Sid's under protection, right?
Randy Meeks: Yeah.
[Gale's phone rings again; she answers it]
Gale Weathers: What?
Gale's Agent: [on the phone] Bob really needs to talk to you.
Gale Weathers: Tell Bob I'll call him back. [hangs up phone]
Deputy Dewey Riley: When'd she start smoking?
Randy Meeks: Ever since those nude pictures on the Internet.
Gale Weathers: It was just my head. It was Jennifer Aniston's body. Anyway, you're forgetting something. In Woodsboro, there were more victims before the homestretch.; Tatum, my cameraman, Himbry...---
Joel: Time out! I don't need to be hearing about no dead cameramen, all right? Now I'm warning you, guys. I am a verb away from vacating these premises. I'm gonna get me some coffee, donuts, Prozac, see if I can find some crack, Special KX, not Malcolm, and I'll be back when you guys start talking about something a little more Saved By The Bell-ish, all right?
[Joel leaves]
Deputy Dewey Riley: He seems a little shaky.
Gale Weathers: Don't worry about him. If the killer is following a pattern, maybe we can figure out who's next.
Deputy Dewey Riley: I wouldn't follow a killer's pattern. We were all involved in Woodsboro. Could be any one of us.
Gale Weathers: So what do you wanna do, bonehead? Sit here, wait and see who drops next?
Deputy Dewey Riley: Well, I don't know... [Gale's phone rings again] "Phonehead"!
[Gale's phone kept ringing; Randy gets her phone and answers it]
Randy Meeks: Gale's not here!---
Phone Voice: I'm not interrupting anything, am I? You three look deep in thought. Have you ever felt a knife cut through human flesh and scrape the bone beneath? [laughs evilly]
Randy Meeks: It's him.
Deputy Dewey Riley: Who?
Randy Meeks: The killer. He can see us.
Deputy Dewey Riley: Just keep him on the phone.
Randy Meeks: What do you want me to say?
Deputy Dewey Riley: I-I don't know. Just keep him talking. Come on, Gale.
Randy Meeks: Uh...hi.
Gale Weathers: What are we doing?
Deputy Dewey Riley: Look for somebody with a cell phone.
Randy Meeks: So, uh... what's your favorite scary movie?
Phone Voice: You'll never find me.
Randy Meeks: What do you care? Let 'em have their fun. So, uh... what's up?
Phone Voice: What's your favorite scary movie?
Randy Meeks: Showgirls. Absolutely frightening. What's yours? Wait. Let me guess. The House on Sorority Row? The dorm that dripped blood? Splatter university? Graduation day? Final exam? Am I close?
Phone Voice: Closer than you think. [A random person bumps into Randy] Too slow, geek. Do you want to die?
Randy Meeks: Is that the best you can do? Because Billy and Stu were much more original.
Phone Voice: Why are you even here, Randy? You'll never be the leading man.
Randy Meeks: FUCK! YOU!
Phone Voice: No matter how hard you try, you'll never be the hero and you'll never, ever get the girl.
[Randy attacks a man on a phone next to a van, believing he's the killer, but he's not]
Randy Meeks: Sorry.
Phone Voice: Wrong guy, dead boy.
Randy Meeks: Oh, yeah? Well, let's re-direct the moment, Mr. I'm So Original. Huh? Where's your motivation? Huh? Why copycat two high school loser ass dickheads? Stu was a pussy-ass wet rag. And Billy Loomis? Billy Loomis, what the fuck? Jesus! What a rat-looking, homo-repressed momma's boy! Why not set your goals higher, huh? You wanna be one of the big boys? Huh? Manson, Bundy, O.J, Son of...
[Ghostface attacks Randy and kills him]

[Sidney is struggling to free Derek]
Derek: Oh, thank God, Sidney, I thought I was gonna be up there until opening night.
Sidney Prescott: I'm gonna get you out of here. Derek, he killed Hallie.
Derek: What are you talking about?
Sidney Prescott: The killer! He's here!
Derek: Where?
[Ghostface appears]
Ghostface: [speaking in the Phone Voice] Right here. You're fast, Sid. I wouldn't do that if I were you. You really wanna trust your boyfriend? [The voice suddenly changes to Mickey's voice] Don't you know history repeats itself? Hm? Sid?
[Ghostface takes off the mask to reveal himself as Mickey, who brings out the voice changer and speaks through it]
Mickey/Phone Voice: Surprise, Sidney!

[Debbie Salt, who is actually Mrs. Loomis, Billy's mother, has revealed herself to be the mastermind behind the killings and has just shot her accomplice Mickey]
Mrs. Loomis: Two birds, one stone. Oh, Mickey was a good boy, but, my God, that whole "blame the movies" motive. Did you buy that for one second? Poor boy was completely out of his mind.
Sidney Prescott: And you're not?
Mrs. Loomis: No. I'm very sane. My motive isn't as '90s as Mickey's. Mine is just good, old-fashioned revenge. You killed my son. And now I kill you. And I can't think of anything more rational.
Sidney Prescott: You're never going to get away with this.
Mrs. Loomis: Of course I will. Everything's traceable back to Mickey, including the cop gun he used to kill everybody. But let's just suppose that you had gotten hold of the other cop's gun, and you chased Mickey, and there was a big shootout and a big scuffle, and you shot Mickey, killed Mickey dead, but not before he got off one shot at you. Okay. So, have I covered everything? Are there any questions, any comments? You know what, though? Who gives a flying fuck, anyway?! Let them try and track down the second possible killer! Debbie Salt doesn't exist.
Sidney Prescott: You're as crazy as your son was.
Mrs. Loomis: [angered] What did you just say? Was that a negative, disparaging remark about my son? About my Billy?
Sidney Prescott: [sarcastically] No, Billy was a good boy. Billy was perfect. You did a bang-up job, Mrs. Loomis.
Mrs. Loomis: It's not wise to patronize a woman with a gun, Sidney. Randy spoke poorly of Billy, and I got a little knife-happy. I was a good mother. You know what makes me sick? I'm sick to death of people saying that it's all the parents' fault, that it all starts with the family. You wanna blame someone? Why don't you blame your mother?! She's the one who stole my husband and broke up my family! And then you took my son. You don't know what it is to be a mother, to raise a child, and teach him, and guide him...
Sidney Prescott: [annoyed] And abandon him?! [Mrs. Loomis stops ranting, shocked at what Sidney just said] Isn't Mickey supposed to be dead?
[Mrs. Loomis immediately turns around, allowing Sidney to attack her]

[Cotton Weary, carrying a gun, arrives as Mrs. Loomis is holding Sidney hostage with a knife to her neck]
Cotton Weary: Okay, okay, okay. Everybody slow down. I have had a very, very bad day, and I would like to know exactly what the fuck is going on here. Sidney?
Sidney Prescott: Cotton, meet Billy Loomis' mother. She's the killer.
Cotton Weary: What? [Notices Mickey's body] Then who's that?
Sidney Prescott: The other killer, Mickey.
Cotton Weary: Okay.
Sidney Prescott: Look, Cotton...
Cotton Weary: Shut up. [Speaks to Mrs. Loomis] So...hi. You're, uh, not Debbie Salt, are you? You're not with the Post Telegraph.
Mrs. Loomis: No, but I can still help you, Cotton.
Cotton Weary: Ah-ah-ah.
Mrs. Loomis: [desperate] You don't need her. Let me kill her! As long as she's alive, you're never going to be the lead story. That's what you really want, isn't it, Cotton? If you really wanna be in the spotlight, just let me kill her...right now. Then you're the only survivor. You're the star! [Yells in rage] SHE SENT YOU TO PRISON FOR A YEAR! Personally, I think it's rather poetic!
[Cotton thinks about something]
Sidney Prescott: No. No, Cotton, don't you listen to her.
Cotton Weary: Oh.'s quite a predicament you're in, Sid.
Sidney Prescott: Cotton...
Cotton Weary: I mean, she makes a good point. [chuckles] Let me think about this. Maybe you should, too. Bet you that Diane Sawyer interview's looking real good right about now.
[A few tense moments pass as Cotton continues holding his gun at Sidney and Mrs. Loomis, while Mrs. Loomis smiles, believing she had successfully convinced Cotton to let her kill Sidney, until Sidney finally speaks...]
Sidney Prescott: Consider it done.
[Upon hearing those words, Mrs. Loomis becomes horrified, realizing that she has actually not convinced Cotton to let her kill Sidney at all, just as Cotton ultimately fires the gun, striking Mrs. Loomis in the neck and killing her, while Sidney remains unharmed]
Cotton Weary: Wow. That...was intense.

Gale Weathers: [checking Mrs. Loomis' body.] Is she dead?
Sidney Prescott: I don't know. They always come back.
[Mickey starts to rise, but Sidney and Gale shoot him many times, until he is dead.]
Cotton Weary: Whoa!
[They all turn around to Mrs. Loomis as Sidney shoots her in the head.]
Sidney Prescott: Just in case.
[Sidney drops the gun and leaves.]

Sidney Prescott: 300 people watched. Nobody did anything. They thought it was a publicity, for Christ sakes.
Randy Meeks: [Speaking in an Australian accent humorously] And it would have been a good one, too.
Sidney Prescott: It's starting again, Randy.
Randy Meeks: It's not. A lot of shit happens at the movies. People get robbed, shot, maimed, murdered. Movie theaters are very dangerous places to be these days.
Sidney Prescott: [persistent] Yeah, and you are in extreme denial.
Randy Meeks: You should be, too. This has nothing to do with us.
Sidney Prescott: [frantic] Randy! A guy in a ghost mask hacked up two people in a movie theater filming our life story.
Randy Meeks: Coincidence?
Sidney Prescott: You know what happened at Woodsboro, Randy. You can't ignore it.
Randy Meeks: [speaking normally now] I know, Sid, and I don't want to go back there again. Can't we just go back to our pseudo-quasi happy existence?
[Derek, Sidney's boyfriend catches up with them]
Randy Meeks: HELLO, DEREK, how you doing?
Derek: [kisses Sidney] Hi, Sid, I heard you weren't in class.
Sidney Prescott: Yeah, I know. I skipped it because I couldn't take the "Death to her" looks.
Derek: Is there anything I could do?
Sidney Prescott: Yeah, do you have any tricks for getting back to a pseudo-quasi happy existence?
Derek: [thinking decisively] You know? I might just have one for that.
Randy Meeks: Oh, yeah, what is that?
[Derek turns to Sidney, brings her in for a couple romantic kisses while Randy looks away, jealous and embarrassed]
Sidney Prescott: [smiles] That was pretty good.
[Derek and Sidney walk away]
Randy Meeks: Get a room.
