You know what, the rest of you may hate your insomnia but I'm not sure I want a cure for mine. That's when I get all my best ideas... I'm alone, occasionally... with no distractions. My mind is racing with creative ideas and come 3am I feel like a genius.

Luke: I don't know, I just think Dr. Marrow's up to something. And you know what, I'm going to find out. Right after I check on Theo that is. I wonder how she's doing.
Eleanor "Nell" Vance: Doing or wearing?
Luke: Yeah no kidding. Did you see what she had on yesterday? Hey I definitely got a soft spot for Theo.

Jane: Also, we know how much you loved Mom's car so we're giving it to you.
Eleanor "Nell" Vance: you're taking away my home, and giving me a twenty year old car? Who are you?

We should have stopped this when Mary got hurt. And definitely when Eleanor... Jesus Christ, we have to get out of here.

Dr. David Marrow

You know all my life, I have been waiting for an adventure. I thought it would never happen to me. I mean adventures are for Soldiers, or for bullfighters, the women fall in love with. Now, here I am. Paintings are moving and strange voices are calling for me at night, and all it cost me was FIVE GALLONS OF GAS.

Luke: And you I'm gonna guess, are a les...
Theo: Don't even start.
Luke: Wow, You're so bossy and domineering...
Theo: Thanks. Theo.

I'm not staying in this freaking house another second, so come on.

Luke

Dr. David Marrow: The gate is still locked we have to wait until the Dudleys arrive.
Luke: What? That's really compassion. Yeah "Let's wait until the morning, so tomorrow I have time to write a few more Welcome Home Eleanor's".
Dr. David Marrow: Luke, I didn't write that stuff, OK?
Luke: Of course you didn't that wouldn't be ethical, would it doc...
Theo: Would you guys just shut up?

Dr. David Marrow: Ok, so what do we all need in life? What are the basics? Food, water, shelter...
Theo: ...Sex.

Theo: Hi. Don't worry I'm not an obsessive packer it's just a cheap and exploitative way of making new friends, I'm Theo.
Eleanor "Nell" Vance: Eleanor, but everybody calls me Nell.
Theo: Well, "Everybody Calls Me Nell", don't you love it here? It's like Charles Foster Kane meets the Munsters.

Theo: Is this one of your sick jokes, Luke?
Luke: What? You really think I wrote that?
Theo: You found it; you could have.
Luke: How, with the twenty-foot ladder I keep in my back pocket?

Dr. David Marrow: Let me explain what's happening. You're participating in a study on group fear and hysteria.
Luke: What, and you were waiting for her to have a total nervous breakdown before you said it, I mean, what is your problem?
