  • Janet: Bud, why is it every other word you say is either hell or s**t or damn?
    Bud: Sorry, I guess I just f**k up all the time.
  • [After discovering Laurie is Michael's sister]
    Dr. Loomis: [to the Marshall] Turn this car around, now!
    Marshal: I can't do that. I have orders.
    [draws gun and points it at him]
    Dr. Loomis: Well those orders have changed!
    Marshal: Doctor, you're getting yourself into a lot of trouble.
    Dr. Loomis: What is it you guys usually do? Fire a warning shot, right?!
    [Loomis shoots out the window, and the car screeches and turns about.]
  • Bud: Rule number 1, never get involved with a patient. Nurses, that's a different story, but not patients, it never works out.
  • [After Michael disappears]
    Neighbor: What's going on out here?
    Dr. Loomis: Call the police! Tell the sheriff I shot him!
    Neighbor: Who?
    Dr. Loomis: Tell him, he's still on the loose!
    Neighbor: Is this some kind of joke? I've been trick-or-treated to death tonight.
    Dr. Loomis: [looks at the blood on his hand] You don't know what DEATH is!
  • Dr. Loomis: I shot him 6 times! I shot him in the heart-but... HE'S NOT HUMAN!


  • Dana Carvey made his movie debut in Halloween II playing an assistant. He can be seen receiving instructions from a blond reporter in front of the Doyle house.
  • Halloween II was originally written to take place in a high rise apartment building. Later in script meetings, however, the setting was changed to Haddonfield Hospital.
  • Jamie Lee Curtis had to wear a wig that matched her original hairstyle for the film.
  • This is the only Halloween film, aside from Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, in which Michael Myers is not referred to as the Bogeyman.
  • This is the only Halloween film to show the morning after the 31st, every other movie ends on Halloween night.
