  • (Fred Gwynne) "It's that damn road. It uses up lots of animals. Cats and dogs mostly."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "The soil of a man's heart is stonier, Louis. A man grows what he can, and he tends it. Because what you buy is what you own. And what you own -- always comes home to you."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "Louis, You all right?"
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Yeah. I just lost my happy thoughts there for a second."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "A man doesn't always know why he does things, Louis. I think I did it, 'cause your daughter ain't ready for her favorite pet to die. Maybe with more time, she'll learn what death really is, which is where the pain stops and the good memories begin."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "It was the Ragman who told me about the place. He was half Micmac himself. He knew how I felt about my dog Spot. Spot had got caught in barbed wire that infected. When he died, I thought I was going to die. Ragman did for me what I did for you last night. Only I wasn't alone when Spot came back. My mother was with me. You could still see the barbed wire marks on him"
  • (Jud's Mother) "Jud, come and get your dog. He stinks of the ground you buried him in. Jud."

  • (Fred Gwynne) "Louis, afraid you may have a spot of trouble here."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Jud? What trouble?"
  • (Fred Gwynne) "Well, there's a dead cat over here at the edge of my lawn."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Oh, Jesus."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "I think it might be your daughter's."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "At least it don't look like he suffered."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Well, Ellie will suffer. She'll suffer plenty."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "Louis -- you asked me if anyone had ever buried a person up there in the Micmac grounds. I lied to you when I said no. It's been done. What you've been thinking of has been done. He was a local boy. It was towards the end of the second world war. His name was Timmy Baterman."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "He was killed on his way home from the second world war. His father Bill Baterman was so grief-struck. He was so grief struck, he buried his son up there before he ever had a chance to get to the bottom of the truth."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "You're thinking thoughts best not thought of, Louis."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "I thinking about going to bed."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "I'm responsible for more pain in your heart than you should have tonight. For all I know, I may even be responsible for the death of your son."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "What? Jud, you're talking crazy."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "You are thinking of putting him up there. Don't deny the thought hadn't crossed your mind, Louis."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "When you talk to them -- not one word about what we done tonight."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "What did we do tonight, Jud?"
  • (Fred Gwynne) "What we did, Louis, was a -- secret thing. Women are supposed to be the ones who are good at keeping secrets, but any woman who knows anything at all will tell you she's never seen into a man's heart. The soil of a man's heart, Louis, is stonier, like the soil up there in the old Micmac burial ground."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "You see, Louis, what I'm getting at here, you understand?"
  • (Dale Midkiff) "You're telling me that place knew Gage was going to die?"
  • (Fred Gwynne) "I'm saying -- that place might have made Gage die because I introduced you to the power. I may have murdered your son, Louis."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "Meantime, Doc, here's to your bones."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "And your bones."

  • (Denise Crosby) "Yes, but you have to take them to someone who grooms animals though, and I think it's pretty expensive."

  • (Dale Midkiff) "I'll cough up the money, Ellen."
  • (Blaze Berdahl) "I hate that smell."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Yes. I hate it, too."

  • (Miko Hughes) "Uh-Oh."
  • (Blaze Berdahl) "Daddy, look, this one's a goldfishy."

  • (Blaze Berdahl) "Is Missy in heaven, do you think?"
  • (Dale Midkiff) "I don't know, honey. Different people believe in all sorts of different things. Some believe in heaven or hell, and some believe we come back as little children, and some believe we just wink out, like a candle flame when the wind blows hard"
  • (Blaze Berdahl) "Do you believe that?"
  • (Dale Midkiff) "No. I think we go on"

  • (Dale Midkiff) "That was a silly dream, wasn't it?"

Dale Midkiff as Louis Creed

  • (Dale Midkiff) "I'll bite Jud. What's the bottom of the truth?"
  • (Fred Gwynne) "Well, that sometimes, death is better."
  • (Fred Gwynne) "The person you put up there ain't the person that comes back. It may look like that person, but it ain't that person. 'Cause -- whatever lives in the ground beyond the Pet Sematary ain't human at all."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "I don't like this dream."
  • (Brad Greenquist) "Who said you were dreaming?"
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Hi, baby. How's everything in Chicagoland?"
  • (Blaze Berdahl) "Grandma and grandpa gave me all sorts of neat things. How's Church, daddy? Does he miss me?"
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Well -- I guess he's just fine, Ellie. I haven't seen him this evening, but, ah --"
  • (Blaze Berdahl) "Well, make sure you put him down in the cellar before you go to bed so he won't run out in the road. And, kiss him good night for me."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Yuck. Kiss your own cat."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Hey, why are you here?"
  • (Brad Greenquist) "I want to help you because, Louis? Because you tried to help me."

  • (Fred Gwynne) "Sure, it was dark. But his head swiveled on his neck like it was full of ball bearings. When you moved him, he pulled out of the frost, Louis. Sounded like a piece of ticky tape coming off a letter. Live things don't do that. You only stop melting the frost under where you're laying when you're dead."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "I'm going to bust you out, son."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "How's that bellyache of yours?"
  • (Susan Blommaert) "No better. No worse."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "You know, I can take a look at that for you."
  • (Susan Blommaert) "It'll pass. They always do."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Go on. Lay down. Play dead."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Be dead."

  • (Fred Gwynne) "I'd get him fixed if I were you. Fixed cat don't tend to wander."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "How the hell did you get in here."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "If it doesn't work -- If he comes back -- and he's like Jud said Timmy Baterman was, well, I'll just put him back to sleep. They don't have to know. Rachel and Ellie, don't ever have to know."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Come back to me, Gage. Come back to us."

  • (Fred Gwynne) "I had my reasons."
  • (Dale Midkiff) "Church will be just the same. Well, almost the same, and we won't have to worry about him getting run over in the road by trucks. Church will be all right, honey."
  • (Blaze Berdahl) "You promise, daddy?"
  • (Denise Crosby) "Don't shilly-shally, Louis, give the little girl a promise."

And they'll come home, and they'll say I murdered her by choking. They'll say, "You hated her, Rachel", and that was true. And they'll say, "You wanted her to be dead", and that was true too. And then she died. And I started to scream. I ran out of the house screaming, "Zelda's dead. Zelda's dead. Zelda's dead." And the neighbors they came out and they looked --"

  • (Dale Midkiff) "If you were, I salute you for it. And If I ever needed another reason to not like your father and mother I have one now.
