QUOTES FROM Craig Wasson CHARACTERS

Dr. Neil Goldman
(after reading "Amanda Krueger on the tombstone) - My God. You were his mother.
Dr. Neil Goldman
(after reading 'Amanda Krueger' on the tombstone) My God. You were his mother.
Phillip
Can I interject something just to save us all some time?
Dr. Neil Goldman
Sure, Phillip. Go ahead.
Phillip
Well, according to our kind hosts, our dreams are a group psychosis; sort of a mellow mass hysteria. The fact that we all dreamt about this guy before we ever met doesn't impress anybody. So we go in circles making minimal progress with maximum effort.
Dr. Elizabeth Simms
You won't make any progress until you recognize your dreams for what they are.
Nancy Thompson
And what are they?
Dr. Elizabeth Simms
The by-products of guilt; psychological scars stemming from moral conflicts and overt sexuality.
Kincaid
Oh, great. Now it's my di*k that's killing me.
Max
Say, listen Doc, I got a new theory about all these suicides...Right?
Max
Say, listen Doc, I got a new theory about all these suicides. Right?
Dr. Neil Goldman
Don't hold back on us, Max. We need all the help we can get.
Max
It's fu*ked up chromosomes, man. Think about it. All their parents dropped acid during the sixties.
Dr. Neil Goldman
Well, it beats Simm's theory. She thinks it's nothing but sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.
Max
Sh*t. That's what keeps people alive.
Dr. Neil Goldman
What was that nursery rhyme all about?
Nancy Thompson
It was just something that that the kids say to keep the Boogeyman away.
Nun
(talking to Neil) - Only one thing can save the children now. The unquiet spirit must be laid to rest...
Nun
(talking to Neil) Only one thing can save the children now. The unquiet spirit must be laid to rest.
Nancy Thompson
Neil? What are you doing up here?
Dr. Neil Goldman
Oh, I was just talking to... (Mary Helena is gone)
Nancy Thompson
To who?
Dr. Elizabeth Simms
I'm not going to take any more of this. How much longer are you going to go on blaming your dreams for your own weaknesses?
Kincaid
Lady, how much longer you gonna keep blowing smoke up our ass?
Dr. Neil Goldman
That's enough, Kincaid!
Dr. Elizabeth Simms
There will be no repeat occurrences of last night's events. From now on your doors will be locked during sleeping hours. We'll start a policy of evening sedation for everybody.
Kincaid
The fu*k you will! Anybody tries drugs on me gets his ass kicked!
Dr. Elizabeth Simms
Well, you just bought yourself a night in the quite room, Mister. Now sit down!
Kincaid
Fu*k you! You sit down!
