  • Billy Hitchcock: Carter, you dick!
  • Tod Waggner: We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we believe it's in a far and distant future. Not to have any connections with the day already began, or that death could arrive this same afternoon...
  • Bludworth: There are no accidents, no coincidences, and no escapes.
  • Billy Hitchcock: There they go, here we stay. [As he watches the plane take off and then explode]
  • Carter: As far as I know, this s**t can circle around and get us all again. But for right now, I'm the safest f**ker in the world, because you're still NEXT.


  • The numerous appearances of '180' in the movie refer to the film's original title of 'Flight 180'. New Line decided to rename the film to Final Destination through fear of confusion of other movies like Air Force One or Con Air.
  • When Alex and Clear's baby is born, the time of birth is 9.25. The same number is coming back several times in the movie, e.g. the time of the departure of the flight.
  • Another character named after a historic horror film maker is Larry Murnau, named after F.W. Murnau, director of the "first" Dracula film Nosferatu‚ eine Symphonie des Grauens
  • During the opening credits, all of the deaths in the movie are foreshadowed. There is a hanging doll, a guillotine, and a picture of a knife in someone's chest.
  • Before his death Tod's name is torn from the magazine, Tod is also the German word for death.
