    • Casey: Who's there?
    • Ghostface: Never say "who's there?" Don't you watch scary movies? It's a death wish. You might as well come out to investigate a strange noise or something.
    • Randy: Listen up. They found Principal Himbry dead. He was gutted and hung from the goal post on the football field.
    • Drunk teen: Well, what are we waiting for? Let's go over there before they pry him down!
    • Stu: I wanna see breasts. I wanna see Jamie Lee's breasts. When do we see Jamie Lee's breasts?
    • Randy: Breasts? Not until "Trading Places" in 1983. Jamie Lee was always a virgin in horror movies. She didn't show her tits 'til she went legits.

    • Phone Voice: They'll never make it in time.
    • Sidney Prescott: How do you - gut someone?
    • Stu: You take a knife and you slit 'em from groin to sternum.
    • Billy: Hey. It's called tact, you fuck-rag.
    • Billy: It's called subtlety, Stu. You should look it up.
    • Sidney Prescott: But this is life. This isn't a movie.
    • Billy: Sure it is, Sid. It's all a movie. It's all one great big movie.
    • [pauses]
    • Billy: . Only you can pick your genre.
    • [last lines]
    • Gale: Okay I think it's going to go something like this, just stay with me. Hi, this is Gale Weathers with an exclusive eyewitness account of this amazing breaking story. Several more local teens are dead, bringing to an end the harrowing mystery of the masked killings that has terrified this peaceful community like the plot of some scary movie. It all began with the scream of a 911, and ended in a bloodbath that has rocked the town of Woodsboro. All played out here in this peaceful farmhouse, far from the crimes and the sirens of the larger cities that its residents have fled. Okay, let's take it back to one. Come on, move it! This is my big shot. Let's go.
    • Randy: Now that Billy tried to mutilate her, do you think Sid would go out with me?
    • Ghostface: Wait, I thought we were going to go out.
    • [uneasily, starting to feel nervous]
    • Casey: Um, I don't think so.
    • [in a warning tone]
    • Ghostface: Don't hang up on me.
    • [she hangs up. The phone rings again]
    • Casey: Yes?
    • [in an ominous, taunting threatening tone]
    • Ghostface: I told you not to hang up on me.
    • Casey: What do you want?
    • Tatum: No, please don't kill me, Mr. Ghostface, I wanna be in the sequel!
    • Stu: I will totally protect you. Yo, I am so buff, I got you covered, girl.
    • Tatum: Hey Sid, just think - if they make a movie about you, who's gonna play you?
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: I shudder to think.
    • Sidney Prescott: I see you as a young Meg Ryan, myself.
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: Thanks, Dewey, but with my luck I'd get Tori Spelling.
    • [when Randy reveals that he's still alive]
    • Sidney Prescott: Oh, my God. Randy I thought you were dead.
    • Randy: I probably should be. I never thought I'd be so happy to be a virgin.
    • [speaking into voicebox]
    • Stu: Surprise, Sidney.
    • Phone Voice: Do you like scary movies?
    • Sidney Prescott: What's the point? They're all the same. Some stupid killer stalking some big-breasted girl who can't act who is always running up the stairs when she should be running out the front door. It's insulting.
    • Randy: It's the millennium. Motives are incidental.
    • Principal Himbry: You make me so sick. Your entire havoc-inducing, thieving, whoring generation disgusts me.
    • [quoting Norman Bates]
    • Billy: We all go a little mad sometimes.
    • Phone Voice: Name the killer in Friday the 13th.
    • Casey: Jason! Jason! Jason!
    • Phone Voice: I'm sorry. That's the wrong answer!
    • Casey: No, it's not. No it's not. It was Jason.
    • Phone Voice: Afraid not. No way.
    • Casey: Listen, it was Jason! I saw that movie 20 goddamn times!
    • Phone Voice: Then you should know that Jason's mother, Mrs. Voorhees was the original killer. Jason didn't show up until the sequel. I'm afraid that was a wrong answer.
    • [Weeping]
    • Casey: You tricked me.
    • Phone Voice: Lucky for you there's a bonus round, but poor Steve... I'm afraid he's OUT!
    • [about Casey Becker's death]
    • Tatum: It's so sad. Her mom and dad found her hanging from a tree limb, her insides on the outside.
    • Randy: There are certain RULES that one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie. For instance, number one: you can never have sex.
    • Randy: See, you push the laws and you end up dead. Okay, I'll see you in the kitchen with a knife.
    • [crowd boos]
    • Randy: BIG NO NO! BIG NO NO! Sex equals death, okay? Number two: you can never drink or do drugs.
    • [crowd cheers and raises their bottles]
    • Randy: The sin factor! It's a sin. It's an extension of number one. And number three: never, ever, ever under any circumstances say, "I'll be right back." Because you won't be back.
    • Stu: I'm gettin' another beer, you want one?
    • Randy: Yeah, sure.
    • Stu: I'll be right back.
    • [crowd cheers]
    • Gale: Guess I remembered the safety that time, bastard.
    • [licks "blood" from his fingers]
    • Billy: Mmmm... corn syrup. Same stuff they used for pig's blood in "Carrie."
    • Ghostface: What's your favorite scary movie?
    • Tatum: Cut Casper, that's a wrap!
    • Stu: Liver alone!
    • [Gale, Sid and Randy are looking at Billy's body]
    • Randy: Careful. This is the moment when the supposedly dead killer comes back to life, for one last scare.
    • [Billy starts to rise]
    • [shoots Billy]
    • Sidney Prescott: Not in my movie.
    • Billy: What do I have to do to prove to you that I'm not a killer?
    • Gale: Looks like we've got a serial killer on our hands!
    • Gale: I'm sorry, am I keeping you?
    • [Turning back to her, he removes his hat]
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: If I may say so, Miss Weathers, you are much prettier in person.
    • [He gives her a flirty smile and turns away again to run up the school steps]
    • [delighted]
    • Gale: So you do watch the show!
    • [Dewey stops and turns back]
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: I'm 25. I was 24 for a whole year.
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: Well, a "serial killer" is not really accurate. Gotta knock off a couple more to get that title.
    • Gale: Well, we can hope, can't we? I mean, we certainly don't have any leads. Have you located Sidney's father yet?
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: No, not yet.
    • Gale: Well, he's not a suspect, is he?
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: We haven't ruled him out as a possibility.
    • [He becomes aware that he is gazing too long at her eyes]
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: If you'll excuse me.
    • [Dewey turns away, but Gale pursues and grabs his arm]
    • [Gale runs across the school campus to Dewey]
    • Gale: You know, in a demographic study, I proved to be most popular amongst males 11 to 24. I guess I just missed you.
    • [giggles flirtatiously]
    • Gale: Of course, you don't look a day over 12. Except in that...
    • [She looks him up and down, admiringly]
    • Gale: ... upper torso area. Does the force require you to work out?
    • [Charmed, despite his common sense:]
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: No, ma'am. 'Cause of my boyish good looks, muscle mass has increased my acceptance as a serious police officer.
    • [They smile at each other]
    • Gale: Is there a problem on campus?
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: No. Everything's under control.
    • [seductively]
    • Gale: Well, of course. You're here.
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: You're not supposed to be here.
    • Gale: I know. I should be in New York covering the Sharon Stone stalker, but who knew?
    • [giggles]
    • Gale: You look awfully young to be a police officer.
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: I'm 25 years old.
    • Sidney Prescott: You know, if, if I was wrong about Cotton Weary, then the killer's still out there.
    • Tatum: Don't go there, Sid. You're starting to sound like some Wes Carpenter flick or something. Don't freak yourself out, okay? We've got a long night ahead of us.
    • [first lines]
    • Casey: I think you have the wrong number.
    • Phone Voice: Do I?

    • Casey: Hello?
    • Phone Voice: Hello.
    • Casey: Yes?
    • Phone Voice: Who is this?
    • Casey: Who are you trying to reach?
    • Phone Voice: What number is this?
    • Casey: Well, what number are you trying to reach?
    • Phone Voice: I don't know.
    • Stu: Because there's no way a girl could have killed them.
    • Tatum: That is so sexist. The killer could easily be female. Basic Instinct.
    • Randy: That was an ice pick. Not exactly the same thing.
    • Stu: Yeah, Casey and Steve were completely hollowed out. Takes a man to do something like that.
    • Tatum: Or a man's mentality.
    • Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley: He's my superior!
    • Tatum: Janitor is your superior.
    • Phone Voice: You still haven't told me your name.
    • [smiling]
    • Casey: Why do you want to know my name?
    • Phone Voice: Because I want to know who I'm looking at.
    • [looks around, frightened]
    • Casey: ... What did you say?
    • [short pause]
    • Phone Voice: I said I want to know who I'm talking to.
    • Casey: That's not what you said.
    • [serious tone]
    • Phone Voice: What do you think I said?
    • [Talking on the phone to Ghostface]

    • Casey: Oh, just some scary movie.
    • Phone Voice: Do you like scary movies?
    • Casey: Uh huh.
    • Phone Voice: What's your favourite scary movie?
    • Casey: I dunno.
    • Phone Voice: You have to have a favourite, what comes to mind?
    • Phone Voice: Why don't you wanna talk to me?
    • Casey: Who is this?
    • Phone Voice: You tell me your name, I'll tell you mine.
    • Casey: I don't think so.
    • [checks popcorn]
    • Phone Voice: What's that noise?
    • Casey: Popcorn!
    • Phone Voice: You're making popcorn?
    • Gale: There she is! Sidney, hi, what happened? Are you alright?
    • Tatum: She's not answering any questions alright. Just leave us alone.
    • Sidney Prescott: No, no Tatum it's OK. She's just doing her job, right Gale?
    • Gale: That's right.
    • Sidney Prescott: So how's the book?
    • Gale: Oh it'll be out later this year.
    • Sidney Prescott: Oh, I'll look for it.
    • Gale: I'll send you a copy.

    • [voice]
    • Phone Voice: Hey, we're not finished yet. Final question. Are you ready?
    • [trembling]
    • Casey: Please... leave me alone...
    • [voice]
    • Phone Voice: Answer the question and I will. Which door at I'm at?
    • Casey: What?
    • [voice]
    • Phone Voice: There are two main doors to your house. The front door and the back patio door. If you answer correctly, you may live. Very simple.
    • Casey: Please... don't do this. I can't do this... I don't want to play this game anymore.
    • [voice]
    • Phone Voice: Your call.
