Jud Crandall: [from trailer] Sometimes, dead is better.

Ellie: His name's Church. It's short for Winston Churchill. He's someone who lived a really long time ago.

Jud Crandall: I know who Winston Churchill is.

Ellie: Wow. You must be really old.

Louis Creed: Hug your daughter.

Louis Creed: [from trailer] GAGE!

Jud Crandall: They said the ground was... bad.

Louis Creed: Sour. They said the ground was sour.

Jud Crandall: ...yes.

Rachel: [to Louis] Don't... bury... me in that place...

Rachel: How long have you lived here?

Jud Crandall: In Maine or in that old house?

Rachel: Either.

Jud Crandall: Well, the answer to both is all my life.

Rachel: In the woods today, Ellie discovered a charming little landmark.

Ellie: The Pet Sematary.

Louis Creed: A place to bury our pets and remember them. I know it seems scary, but it's not. Perfectly natural, just like dying is natural.

Ellie: Am I dead?

Jud Crandall: It was a myth. Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night. They knew the power of that place. They feared it. Those woods belong to something else. The ground is bad. It maybe just some crazy folktale, but there is something up in those woods, something that brings things back. Sometimes dead is better.

Jud Crandall: She won't come back the same.

Ellie: So many trees.

Rachel: It's beautiful, right?

Louis Creed: It's definately not Boston.

Jud Crandall: It's not some campfire story.

[referring to the symbols on the trees from the drawing in the book]

Louis Creed: I saw these on the trees up there.

Jud Crandall: They're warnings. The local tribes carved them before they fled. They fear that place. There's something up there, something that dates way back.

Louis Creed: [as they arrive at their new home] Here we go. Ok, so what do you think?

Ellie: Wow! This place is ours?

Louis Creed: I even got them to throw in a whole forest as a new backyard.
