Bud: Rule number 1, never get involved with a patient. Nurses, that's a different story, but not patients, it never works out.
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.]
[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!
This is the only Halloween film to show the morning after the 31st, every other movie ends on Halloween night.
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.
A fictional town called Russellville is mentioned in the film. In Bowling Green, Kentucky (near John Carpenter's home town) one of the main streets is called Russellville Road.
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.
Jamie Lee Curtis had to wear a wig that matched her original hairstyle for the film.
