    • [repeated line, usually when Max is about to do something bold but dumb]

    • Master: They called me master.
    • Master's Wife: Oh, really? Well. wait until you see what I'm gonna call you!
    • Miss Olin: Poor Thackery Binx. Neither his Father nor his Mother nor the entire town ever knew what became of him those 300 years ago. And so, the Sanderson Sisters were hanged by the Salem town folk. Now, there are those who say that on Halloween Night, a black cat still guards the old Sanderson House, warding off any who might make the Witches come back to life.
    • Max: Give me a break.
    • Miss Olin: Ah ha. We seem to have a skeptic in our midst. Mr. Dennison, would you care to share your California, laid-back, tye-dye point of view?
    • Max: Okay. Granted that, uh, you folks here Salem are into all these, uh, black cats and witches and stuff...
    • Miss Olin: Stuff?
    • Max: Fine, but everyone here knows that Halloween was invented by the candy companies. It's a conspiracy.
    • Allison: It just so happens that Halloween is based on the ancient feast called All Hallow's Eve. It's the one night of the year where the spirits of the dead can return to Earth.
    • Max: In case Jimi Hendrix shows up tonight, here's my number.
    • Boy in Class: Max, fat chance.
    • Thackery Binx: I want to show you something. Give you an idea of what we're dealing with.
    • Max: William Butcherson? Lost Soul?
    • Thackery Binx: Billy Butcherson was Winifred's lover, but she caught him sporting with her sister, Sarah. So she poisened him and sewed his mouth shut with a dull needle, so he couldn't tell his secrets, even in death. Winifred was always the jealous type.
    • Allison: You're Thackery Binx.
    • Thackery Binx: Yes.
    • Allison: Ha. So the legends are true.
    • Thackery Binx: Come along. Want to show you something else.
    • Dani: Where's Binx? Binx? Binx? Binx!
    • [Puts his hand out, as she lays her hand in his]

    • Allison: He's gone. He's gone, Dani.
    • Dani: But he can't die, remember? Wake up, Binx. Binx, wake up. Like last time.
    • [she begins crying over his feline body]
    • [In human spirit form]
    • Thackery Binx: Dani, come on. Please don't be sad for me.
    • Dani: Binx, is that you?
    • Thackery Binx: Yeah.
    • [laughs]
    • Thackery Binx: The witches are dead, my soul's finally free.
    • Ernie "Ice": Ding-ding. Ding-ding.
    • Jay: Oh, no!
    • [Some of his friends laughing]
    • Jay: So, you're doing a little trick-or-treating? Ding-dong!
    • Ernie "Ice": WHOO!
    • Max: I'm taking my little sister around.
    • Jay: That's nice.
    • [sees that he wears a costume]
    • Jay: WHOA! I love the costume! What do you suppose to be? A new kid on the block?
    • Dani: For your information: He's a little leaguer!
    • Jay: Whoa, I'm a little leaguer!
    • Jay: Stop and pay the toll, kid.

    • Jay: Dump out your dump sack.
    • Dani: Drop dead, moron.
    • Ernie "Ice": Yo, twerp. How'd you like to be hung off that telephone pole?
    • Dani: I'd just like to see you try it. Cause it just so happens I've got my big brother with me. Max!
    • [Jay and Ernie are not impressed by this. Max walks up and takes off the sunglasses]
    • Ernie "Ice": Hollywood!
    • [to the Sanderson sisters]
    • Thackery Binx: You hags! There are not enough children in the world to make thee young and beautiful!
