Heather Donahue[edit]

  • I hate crossing streams on logs. If I never cross another stream on a log for the rest of my life, I will die a happy girl!
  • (screaming, as she catches a glimpse of the Blair Witch) OH, MY GOD!! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?!?! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?!?!
  • (sobbing) I just want to apologize to Mike's mom and Josh's mom and my mom. I'm sorry to everyone. I was very naive. I am so, so sorry for everything that has happened. Because in spite of what Mike says now, it is my fault. Because it was my project and I insisted. I insisted on everything. I insisted we weren't lost. I insisted we keep going. I insisted that we walk south. Everything had to be my way and this is where we've ended up. And it's all because of me that we're here now: hungry and cold and hunted. I love you mom and dad. I am so sorry. … (She hears an ominous noise) What is that? (hyperventilates) I'm scared to close my eyes and I'm scared to open them. We're going to die out here!

Joshua Leonard[edit]

  • Okay, here's your motivation. You're lost, you're angry in the woods, and no one is here to help you. There's a witch, and she keeps leaving shit outside your door. There's no one here to help you! She left little trinkets, you took one of them, she ran after us. There's no one here to help you! We walked for 15 hours today, we ended up in the same place! There's no one here to help you, that's your motivation! That's your motivation!
  • [Looking through Heather's camera] It's not the same on film is it? I mean, you know it's real, but it's like looking through the lens gives you some sort of protection from what's on the other side.

Michael Williams[edit]

  • I could help you, but I'd rather stand here and record.
  • [Arguing with Joshua and Heather after they hit him in a fit of rage over him throwing away the map] The map wasn't doing shit all day! THAT MAP WAS USELESS! THAT MAP WAS USELESS!


Mike: What bugs me out is that we're so damn deep in the woods, and people are gonna try and come out here and mess with us, then they gotta have something wrong with them, and I'm not gonna play with that.
Heather: But how do we know it was people?
Mike: Well, even if it wasn't, I'm not gonna play with that either!

Heather: Woke up this morning, just like two seconds ago, and there are piles of rocks outside of our tent. There are three, actually.
Josh: Are you seriously fucking positive those weren't there when we set up camp last night?
Heather: I am seriously fucking positive these were not here. How would we've, like, just made a campsite in between three piles of rocks, just by coincidence?

Heather: Whose shit was thrown around? Whose, specifically?
Josh: It's my shit!
Heather: Why you?
Mike: Let's go, let's go. [shouting] Are you not scared enough?!
Heather: But why you?

Joshua: I heard two noises coming from two separate areas of space over there. One of them could have been an owl, but the other one sounded like a cackling.
Heather: No way!
Joshua: Yeah, it was like a serious cackling.
Heather: See, my problem is that I sleep like a fucking rock.
Michael: If I heard a cackling, I would have shit in my pants!

Joshua: Screw that, you think you guys are heroes for killing innocent people?
Michael: Well, maybe if the people in our country stopped eating donuts, and started realizing what our government is doing to the world, assholes like them, wouldn't even exist!

Michael: What are some of your favorite things to do?
Heather: [laughs mirthlessly] Well, on Sundays I used to like to go hiking, but now...

Heather: How's east?
Michael: East?
Heather: Yeah, we've been going south all this time. How's east?
Michael: Wicked Witch of the West, Wicked Witch of the East. Which one was bad?
Heather: Wicked Witch of the West was the bad one.
Michael: Then we should go east.

[After hearing Josh's screams in the darkness]
Heather: Whatever it is, it knows that Josh is gone.
Mike: If that was Josh, he would've said where he was.
Heather: [whispering] Whoever it was sounded like Josh.
