  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "No no no. We're very professional here. 1408 gets a light turn once a month. I supervise, the maids work in pairs. We treat the room as if it's a chamber filled with poison gas. We only stay 10 minutes and I insist the door remain open. But still -- A few years ago a young maid from El Salvador found herself locked in the bathroom. She was only there for a few moments, but when we pulled her out she was --"
  • (John Cusack) "She was dead?"

  • (John Cusack) "Just give me the key. Listen, I stayed -- at the Bixby House. I brushed my god**** teeth right next to the tub where Sir David Smith drowned his whole family, and I stopped being afraid of vampires when I was 12. Do you know why I can stay in your spooky old room, Mr. Olin? Because I know that ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties -- don't exist. And even if they did, there's no God to protect us from them, now is there?"

  • (John Cusack) "There's a sofa, a writing desk, faux antique armoire, floral wallpaper. Carpet's unremarkable except for a stain beneath a thrift-store painting of a schooner lost at sea. The work is done in the predictably dull fashion of Currier and Ives. The second painting is of an old woman reading bedtime stories; a Whistler knockoff; to a group of deranged children while another Madonna and child watch from the background. It does have the vague air of menace. The third and final, painfully dull painting, the ever popular "The Hunt". Horses, hounds and constipated British lords. Some smartass spoke about the banality of evil. If that's true, then we've in the 7th circle of hell."
  • (John Cusack) "It does have its charms."

Samuel L. Jackson as Gerald Olin

  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "The first victim, Mr. Kevin O' Malley, sewing machine salesman, checked into the hotel the first week it opened, October, 1912."
  • (John Cusack) "Cut his own throat, right?"
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Well that's not the horrific part. Afterwards, in a fit of insanity, he tried to stitch himself back together using an old sewing needle before he bled to death."
  • (John Cusack) "Easy, man."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "I will let you have this, give you access to my office, you can take notes and put it all in your book. My only condition -- is that you do not stay in that room."
  • (John Cusack) "You'll let me look at all that stuff?"
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Hmm."
  • (John Cusack) "I never did get that drink."
  • (John Cusack) "Ooh, that is good."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Here, keep it. Compliments of the house."
  • (John Cusack) "I'm still staying."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Dammit to hell."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "What do you want, Mr. Enslin? You sought this room. Oh, that's right. You don't believe in anything. You like shattering people's hopes. Why do you think people believe in ghosts? For fun? No. It's the prospect of something after death. How many spirits have you broken?"
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "The causes of death in 1408 range from heart attack, stroke, drowning."
  • (John Cusack) "Drowning?"
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Yes, one Mr. Grady Miller drowned in his chicken soup."

  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Well done Mr. Enslin, well done."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Why do you think people believe in ghosts? For fun? No. It's the prospect of something after death."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Hotels are all about presentation and fertile creature comforts."
  • (Samuel L. Jackson) "Look, I'm not telling you not to stay in that room for your own good or for the profit of the hotel. Frankly, selfishly, I just don't want to clean up the mess."
