Barbara Maitland

Adam and Barbra Maitland

Barbara Maitland is the young wife of Adam Maitland.  On their way back from the hardware store, the two get into a tragic car crash taking both their lives.  After they discover their death, the two find out their home has already been sold and the Deetzes are moving in.

At first, the couple is unwilling to let their home go.  They hire bio-exorcist Beetlejuice to help remove the Deetzes from their home.  Then, of course, they meet their sweet daughter, Lydia.

Beetlejuice Quotes

Adam: What are your qualifications?
Beetlejuice: Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the Excorcist 167 times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time I see it. Not to mention the fact that you're talking to a dead guy! Now what do you think!? You think I'm qualified?

I'm the ghost with the most, babe.
