  • Jimmy: Ted. I think...I think when we get to town I should call Betty.
    Ted: Jimbo, calling Betty is definitely a dead f**k thing to do.Look, first rule of love: never get rejected by the same girl twice, I mean that's useless. If you want to make a fool out of yourself, always do it with someone new.
    Jimmy: I don't know anyone new.
    Ted: Well, sex is a great way to meet them.
  • Ted: Let me put this into the ol' computer.
    Jimmy: Ted, I'm serious about this.
    Ted: Hey, the computer don't lie.
  • Jimmy: He thinks that's funny. He thinks that's a funny thing he's doing.
  • Axel: Jesus Christmas! Holy Jesus God damn! Holy Jesus jumping Christmas s**t!


  • Ted White, who plays Jason, refused to talk to the other actors on the set, because he thought it would diminish their fear of Jason.
  • It has been said that the only reason Tom Savini worked as makeup artist on this film was so he could kill the character he created (Jason Voorhees).
  • This is the only installment of the series to feature Jason actually running as opposed to his usual stagger.
  • Ted White has said he played Jason only for the money. In addition, he revealed that he had insisted his name be excluded from the film's credits because he felt uneasy about having played the role.
