The Exorcist Quotes: An Excellent Day for an Exorcism

by at . Comments

The Exorcist is the film that put the horror subgenre on the map. There are dozens of imitators, but none have managed to scare up the fear factor and box office success of the 1973 film. Besides killing it in the pop culture world in terms of its resonance, the film has produced its share of terrifying (and also funny) lines. Here are some of the best The Exorcist quotes.

Demon: What an excellent day for an exorcism.
Father Damien Karras: You would like that?
Demon: Intensely.
Father Damien Karras: But wouldn't that drive you out of Regan?
Demon: It would bring us together.
Father Damien Karras: You and Regan?
Demon: You and us. | permalink

Demon: Your mother sucks (expletive) in Hell, Karras, you faithless slime. | permalink

Father Merrin: Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Damien, and powerful. So don't listen to him. Remember that -- do not listen. | permalink

Regan MacNeil: But ya like him.
Chris MacNeil: Of course I like him. I like pizzas too, but I'm not gonna marry one. | permalink

Demon: Your mother's in here, Karras. Would you like to leave a message? I'll see that she gets it. | permalink

Demon: I'm not Regan.
Father Damien Karras: Well, then let's introduce ourselves. I'm Damien Karras.
Demon: And I'm the Devil. Now kindly undo these straps.
Father Damien Karras: If you're the Devil, why not make the straps disappear?
Demon: That's much too vulgar a display of power, Karras. | permalink

Psychiatrist: Is there someone inside you?
Regan MacNeil: Sometimes.
Psychiatrist: Who is it?
Regan MacNeil: I don't know.
Psychiatrist: Is it Captain Howdy?
Regan MacNeil: I don't know.
Psychiatrist: If I ask him to tell me, will you let him answer?
Regan MacNeil: No.
Psychiatrist: Why not?
Regan MacNeil: I'm afraid. | permalink

Father Merrin: I cast you out! Unclean spirit!
Demon: Shove it up your ass, you (expletive)!
Father Merrin: In the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ! It is he who commands you! It is he who flung you from the gates of Heaven to the depths of Hell!
Demon: (Expletive) him!
Father Merrin: Be gone...
Demon: (Expletive) him, Karras! (Expletive) him!
Father Merrin: ...from this creature of God! Be gone! In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! | permalink

Father Damien Karras: Take me. Come into me. God damn you. Take me. Take me. | permalink
