A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Rooney Mara: Nancy Holbrook
Quentin Smith : Look, we're running out of time.
Nancy Holbrook : What do you mean?
Quentin Smith : [Reading a book] But then it says at the 70-hour mark the insomniac will begin to experience micro-naps. "His brain will begin to shut down its functions for several seconds in an attempt to recharge itself." Which basically means you're dreaming, but you don't know it. Like, even if you're awake. And then it says that after that, your brain will shut down, inducing a coma. Which is permanent sleep.
Freddy Krueger : [Nancy is screaming] Oh, that's music to my ears.
Nancy Holbrook : [struggling] I wanna wake up!
Freddy Krueger : You can't wake up. I had to keep you awake long enough so when you finally slept, you'd never wake up again. We're gonna be in here a long time. Did you really think your boyfriend could wake you up?
[puts claw on chest]
Freddy Krueger : I'm your boyfriend now.
Quentin Smith : Look, if you really wanna talk, how come over the last couple of years, whenever I've invited you out, you've just never shown up?
Nancy Holbrook : I don't know if you've noticed, but I don't exactly fit in.
Quentin Smith : Ok, look. If we survive the next 24 hours, then I'll take you out on a real date.
Nancy Holbrook : And what if I say no?
Quentin Smith : Why don't you sleep on it?
Quentin Smith : [Storms into his father's office] You killed Kruger.
Alan Smith : Where'd you here that name?
Quentin Smith : You chased him, you cornered him and you burned him to death. You hunted him!
Alan Smith : We were not hunting. We were protecting you.
Quentin Smith : [shouting] From what?
Alan Smith : From *him*. From what he did to you. From what you kids said he did to you.
Quentin Smith : [shouting] We were five! We would've said anything! Why didn't you do to the police?
Alan Smith : You were so young.
Quentin Smith : [Whipspers to himself] No. God! And the things we said he did. The cave. Did you ever find it?
Alan Smith : No.
Quentin Smith : How do you know that he was guilty?
[His father looks uncertain]
Nancy Holbrook : Oh, my god!
Quentin Smith : You killed an innocent man!
Alan Smith : Mm-mm. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about that night, Quentin.
Quentin Smith : Good, you deserve at least that.
Alan Smith : Quentin, when you grow up and you have kids, I hope you never know the feeling of utterly failing to protect them.
Resident : I'm gonna give you a little something for the pain. It'll put you right out.
Nancy Holbrook : No, mom, I don't want it. I don't want it, mom, I don't want it.
Dr. Gwen Holbrook : Shh, it's okay. It's okay.
Nancy Holbrook : No, mom, no. I don't want it. I don't want it. Don't let her do it.
Resident : This might sting a bit.
[Her hand becomes Freddy's glove]
Nancy Holbrook : [Shrieks] NO!
Nancy Holbrook : [after Quentin storms out of his father's office] Quentin! Quentin, wait!
[Quentin punches the lockers]
Nancy Holbrook : Wait!
Quentin Smith : WHAT?
Nancy Holbrook : Slow down!
[Nancy grabs his arm]
Nancy Holbrook : Stop!
Quentin Smith : We got him killed. Our stories... Our lies.
Nancy Holbrook : What if we can make him stop?
Quentin Smith : What if we can't?
Nancy Holbrook : Hey, Quentin. Nightmare's over.
Freddy Krueger : Little Nancy. Now that you caught me, what game do you wanna play next?
Nancy Holbrook : Fuck you!
Freddy Krueger : Ooh, sounds like fun. It's a little fast for me. How about we hang, first?
[Freddy grabs Nancy and makes her turn to face the bodies of her friends]
Nancy Holbrook : No. It's not real.
Freddy Krueger : It's real. I'm real.
Freddy Krueger : Little Nancy. All grown up.
Nancy Holbrook : [backing up] You're just a nightmare.
Freddy Krueger : [moving closer to Thompson] That's right. No one can ever prove I was ever here.
Nancy Holbrook : Who are you?
Freddy Krueger : You don't remember? You must. You're my number one. You're my... little Nancy.
[licks Thompson's cheek]
Nancy Holbrook : [moves face away] I set the alarm.
Freddy Krueger : Yes, you did. In your dream.
[sinister laugh; holds Thompson's hand in his clawed one; sniffs her hair]
Freddy Krueger : You smell different.
Nancy Holbrook : Why would you lie to me?
Dr. Gwen Holbrook : I didn't lie.
Nancy Holbrook : It's right here. Why would you lie to me? Stop lying to me! Quit lying to me!
Dr. Gwen Holbrook : I am not lying to you! I am not lying to you!
Nancy Holbrook : Stop lying to me!
Dr. Gwen Holbrook : I am not lying to you! I didn't want you to have to go through your life with this memory! I didn't want you to remember! I wanted you to forget!
Nancy Holbrook : Remember what? What happened at that preschool?
Kris Fowles : Dean said something right before he died...
Jesse Braun : Oh, please don't...
Kris Fowles : He said, "You're not real." He kept repeating it over and over again. Do you have any idea what that means?
Jesse Braun : No. I don't. Think about. What would it mean? Dean was on a truck load of medication when...
Kris Fowles : Jesse, when it happened, it was like somebody was making him do it but there was nobody there. Jesse, you have to believe me!
Jesse Braun : Kris, it was late and you were scared! Your mind was just playing tricks on you that's all...
Nancy Holbrook : [approaches Kris] I believe you.
Kris Fowles : You do?
Nancy Holbrook : I've seen, I saw...
Jesse Braun : You didn't see anything. You weren't there. Kris was. She's already fucked up, so leave her alone!
Nancy Holbrook : [Kris and Jesse leave] You have no idea what I've seen...
Nancy Holbrook : [Sees a book in their pile] What's this one doing here?
Quentin Smith : It's The Pied Piper of Hamelin. I saw it in one of my dreams. It's about a guy who's betrayed by a town and gets his revenge by taking away their children.
Nancy Holbrook : I keep dreaming about children, too. And then there's also a school.
Quentin Smith : Well, it's gotta mean something.
Nancy Holbrook : Yeah, but, I mean, what? We didn't go to school together until, like, 6th grade.
Nancy Holbrook : Memories don't kill you.
Nancy Holbrook : Tell me what happened to Kris, Jesse.
Jesse Braun : Someone killed her in her sleep!
Nancy Holbrook : What? What are you talking about?
Jesse Braun : Don't pretend you don't know, because you do!
Jesse Braun : You said it at the funeral. He's the one who's trying to kill us in our dreams!
Nancy Holbrook : All I keep hearing is the song!
Jesse Braun : What song?
Nancy Holbrook : [singing] One, two, Freddy's coming for you.
Jesse Braun : Freddy!
Jesse Braun : That's his name and he's all in our heads, Nancy!
Nancy Holbrook : [Cuts off Freddy's hand] It hurts now, doesn't it? That because you're in my world now, bitch!
