Bill Denbrough: Leave!

Ben Hanscom: Derry is not like any town I've been in before. They did a study once and, it turns out, people die or disappear at six times the national average. And that's just grown ups. Kids are worse. Way, way worse.

Stanley Uris: When you're a kid, you think that you'll always be... protected, and cared for. Then, one day, you realize that's not true. If you open your eyes, you will see what we're going through.

Georgie Denbrough: Bill's gonna kill me!

Bill Denbrough: He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

Bill Denbrough: Look, you don't have to come in with me, but what happens when another Georgie goes missing, or another Betty, or another Ed Corcoran, or... one of us? Are you just gonna pretend it isn't happening like everyone else in this town? Because I can't. I go home and all I see is that Georgie isn't there. His clothes, his toys, his stupid stuffed animals... but he isn't. So, walking into this house, for me, it's easier than walking into my own.

Beverly Marsh: It wants to divide us!

[repeated line]

Eddie Kaspbrak: My mom's gonna kill me.

Pennywise: Egg boy.

Beverly Marsh: [beating at Pennywise's hands around her beck] I'm not afraid of you!

Eddie Kaspbrak: My mom will have an aneurysm, okay, if she finds out we're playing down here, I'm serious.

Eddie Kaspbrak: I think it's great we're helping the new kid, but we also need to think of our own safety. I mean, he's bleeding all over and you guys know that there's an AIDS epidemic out there right now, as we speak, right? I mean, my mom's friend in New York City got it just by touching a dirty pole in the subway and enough of AIDS blood got into his system from a hangnail. A hangnail!

Eddie Kaspbrak: There's a kid outside looks like someone killed him.

Stanley Uris: What's the Black Spot?

Eddie Kaspbrak: The Black Spot was a night club that was burned down years ago by that racist cult.

Stanley Uris: What?

Eddie Kaspbrak: Don't you watch Geraldo?

Eddie Kaspbrak: Okay, so let me get this straight. It comes out, from wherever, to eat kids for, like, a year, and then what? It just goes into hibernation?

[gesturing toward the sheep]

Leroy Hanlon: . You waste time hemming and hawing and someone else is gonna make that choice for you. Except you won't know it, until you feel that bolt between *your* eyes.

Pennywise: This isn't real enough for you, Billy? I'm not real enough for you? It was real enough for Georgie.
