Townsend: Was your friend OK?
Sheryl: Excuse me?
Townsend: Your friend?
Sheryl: Oh, yeah, he just had some hiccups. He’ll be fine.
Townsend: I’m glad. I knew a man that had hiccups like that; he had a heart attack and died.
Sheryl: I’m so sorry.
Townsend: That’s all right. He was suicidal anyway.

Ben: You don’t really believe in this crap?
Vanessa: Ninety-five percent of what we shoot is helped along, but the other 5 percent – I’ve seen some stuff you can’t exactly explain.

Acosta: What if it’s not delusions?
Kristen: Dr. Boggs has graduated Johns Hopkins. He’s got 30 years treating schizophrenia, but I mean sure, let’s just get his professional opinion and ignore it.
Acosta: I understand that. All I’m asking is what if her possession is not delusion.
Dr. Boggs: You’re calling me here and asking me to believe, but I deal in facts, psychiatry. I look at her and see a very sick woman who needs a doctor’s care and may die without it.
Acosta: And we see a very sick woman who may die if we stop.

Dr. Boggs: This is not supernatural Father. This is a sick woman who is in danger of harming herself.
Father Amara: No, she is in danger of being harmed by supernatural forces.

Sheryl: Ok, take it off.
Townsend: I’m practically naked here.
Sheryl: Wait, what color are your underwear? Let me guess: They’re boxers, and they’re Cupid hearts.
Townsend: Worse, Jedi knights.

Once upon a time there was a girl who was so burned by her parents that she looked like a monster. No one could look at her for more than a minute. She couldn’t go outside because people were too scared of her. They would scream and they would run away, but Halloween night was the only night she could go out because she could wear a mask and no one thought it was weird. And no one was scared of her until she took it off.
