  • Dr. Loomis: I prayed that he would burn in hell. But in my heart, I knew that hell would not have him.
  • [When Spitz pretends to be Michael Myers]
    Deputy Tom: Definitely not funny! Somebody could be dead right now!!
    Deputy Nick: Fortunately we're lousy cops.
  • [Michael Myers advances towards the deputies with a pitch fork]
    Deputy Nick: Somebody could get hurt with that thing.
    Deputy Tom: Hey! Somebody's gonna get hurt with that thing!
    Deputy Nick: Amazing, no respect for authority!
    Deputy Tom: Must be the parents.
  • [Talking into the woods]
    Dr. Loomis: Michael? It will destroy you too, one day, Michael! This rage which drives you. You think if you kill them all it will go away? It won't! You have to fight it, in the place where it's strongest! WHERE IT ALL BEGAN! If you want to get rid of this rage, Michael, go home, GO HOME! Go to your house! I shall be there waiting for you! You will find HER, waiting for you!


  • The bus that the Man in Black gets off of stops outside the exact same store where Jamie and Rachel went to get a Halloween costume in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.
  • Rachel's character was originally supposed to be stabbed in the throat with scissors but the actress, Ellie Cornell, felt it was too gruesome an end for her character, so it was changed.
