Tangina: There is no death. There is only a transition to a different sphere of consciousness. Carol Anne is not like those she's with. She is a living presence in their spiritual earthbound plain. They are attracted to the one thing about her that is different from themselves - her lifeforce. It is very strong. It gives off its own illumination. It is a light that implies life and memory of love and home and earthly pleasures, something they desperately desire but can't have anymore. Right now, she's the closest thing to that, and that is a terrible distraction from the real LIGHT that has finally come for them. You understand me? These souls, who for whatever reason are not at rest, are also not aware that they have passed on. They're not part of consciousness as we know it. They linger in a perpetual dreamstate, a nightmare from which they can not awake. Inside the spectral light is salvation, a window to the next plain. They must pass through this membrane where friends are waiting to guide them to new destinies. Carol Anne must help them cross over, and she will only hear her mother's voice. Now hold on to yourselves... There's one more thing. A terrible presence is in there with her. So much rage, so much betrayal, I've never sensed anything like it. I don't know what hovers over this house, but it was strong enough to punch a hole into this world and take your daughter away from you. It keeps Carol Anne very close to it and away from the spectral light. It LIES to her, it tells her things only a child could understand. It has been using her to restrain the others. To her, it simply IS another child. To us, it is the BEAST. Now, let's go get your daughter.
Teague: (Teague to Steve while tapping the supernaturally glaring porch-light) You afraid of burglars or you trying to attract every insect in Cuesta Verde?
Carol Anne: (puts a twizzler in the Tweety's coffin) For when he's hungry. Carol Anne: (puts a picture in Tweety's coffin) For when he's lonely. Carol Anne: (puts a piece of cloth in Tweety's coffin) For when it's bedtime. (breaks down in tears in Mom’s arms)
(Steve opens window next to neighbors house) Steve: We've got a good game going on here. Ben Tuthill: My kids wanna watch Mr. Rogers. Steve: I don't care what your watching Ben, just show a little mercy with that thing! Ben Tuthill: Move your set. (Ben flicks remote) Steve: Move your's Ben. (Steve flicks his remote) Steve: (Steve and Ben flick each other off)
Tangina: This house has many hearts.
(last lines) Robbie: Faster! Faster! Steve: Don't look back!
(first lines) Carol Anne: Hello? What do you look like? Talk louder, I can't hear you! Hey, hello! Hello, I can't hear you! Five. Yes. Yes. I don't know. I don't know.
Carol Anne: No more!
Robbie: Hey Mom! When it rots can we dig up the bones?
Tangina: You can't choose between life and death when we're dealing with what is in between. Now tell her before it's too late. Diane: Run to the light, baby. Mommy is in the light. Tangina: Tell her you're waiting for her. Diane: Mommy's waiting for you in the light. (under her breath to Tangina) Diane: I hate you for that.
Ben Tuthill: Mosquito ever suck on you, son? Tuthills's Son: I don't know, Dad.
Diane: (the canary has died) Oh... Oh shit, Tweety, couldn't you have waited until a school day?
Diane: Mmmmm... smell that mimosa. Steve: Well you better cut a bouquet and take it with you, because we're not staying.
Steve: You know Teague, he won't take "Go to Hell" for an answer. Diane: What are you going to do? Steve: I'm gonna give him directions.
Steve: You son of a bitch. You moved the cemetery, but you left the bodies, didn't you? You son of a bitch, you left the bodies and you only moved the head stones. You only moved the head stones. Why? Why?
