  • 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.
  • 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]


  • 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.
  • The woman at the check-in desk at the airport tells Alex that the plane leaves at 9:25 which is the same as his birthday (25th September). When he gets on the plane he sits in seat I (which is the 9th letter of the alphabet) and the seat is in row 25.
  • When the students are boarding the airplane, Alex looks down from the jetway and sees a luggage cart with the number 666 on it.
  • As well as footage, Final Destination borrows in other ways from the crash of TWA Flight 800. The July 17th, 1996 flight was also carrying a high school French club, it exploded suddenly and was investigated for a possible deliberate act causing the accident - first a bomb, then a surface to air missile. As with the movie, it was ultimately decided that the crash was a result of mechanical failure (explosion in the central fuel tank), although the FBI investigation is still open.
  • Much of the news footage shown is actual footage from the July 1996 explosion and crash of TWA Flight 800 off East Moriches, Long Island, New York.
