Penny Wise: What artistic style do you like?
Woman: Hmmm...That! I want that piece of art.
Penny Wise: That's the sign for the restrooms.

Penny Wise: You've been praying?
Connie Kendall: Yes! Haven't you?
Penny Wise: Well, sure, but I didn't know everybody was in on it.
Wooton Bassett: That's one thing you can be sure everybody's in on. The praying I mean.

Connie Kendall: You're from Pennsylvania?
Penny Wise: Yeah, what do you think I was named after?

Connie Kendall: I don't know how Wooton does it. He didn't leave until midnight, and he said he had to be up at four. He must be exhausted, too.
Wooton Bassett: Good morning! How's everybody doing today?
Connie Kendall: I hate him.
