Gerald Olin: You do drink, don't you?
Mike Enslin: I did say I was an author.

[yelling] I give room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel TEN SKULLS!

Mike Enslin

[preparing a flaming whiskey bottle] "All right, if that's the way it has to be." [throws bottle against the wall, room goes up in flames] "GO TO HELL!"

Mike Enslin

Look, I just don't want to clean up the mess.

Gerald Olin

Mike Enslin: Why don't you just kill me?
Room 1408: Because everyone of our guests has free will, Mr. Enslin.

Virginia McCain: Well, whoever she is, she sure likes to read a lot.
Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain: Virginia, I'm flattered that you think I have that kind of energy. I figure that if I can't find Paul Sheldon, at least I'll find out what he wrote about.
Virginia McCain: Well, what do you expect to find? A story about a guy who drove his car off a cliff in a snowstorm?
Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain: You see, it's just that kind of sarcasm that's given our marriage real spice.

Virginia McCain: [talking to Jim Taylor] No, he's not here. I don't know where he is, he never tells me anything any more. Probably out having an affair somewhere.
[Buster walks in]
Virginia McCain: Oh, here he is.
[hands Buster phone]
Virginia McCain: It's Jim Taylor, he wants to know who you're having an affair with.

Now that's an oogie mess.

Annie Wilkes

Annie Wilkes: It's the swearing, Paul. It has no nobility.
Paul Sheldon: These are slum kids. I was a slum kid. Everybody talks like that.
Annie Wilkes: THEY DO NOT! At the feedstore do I say, "Oh, now Wally, give me a bag of that F-in' pig feed, and a pound of that bitchly cow corn"? At the bank do I say, "Oh, Mrs. Malenger, here is one big bastard of a check, now give me some of your Christ-ing money!" THERE, LOOK THERE, NOW SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!
