Movie Quote Quiz

Henry: I've never seen ol' Gordo lose it man, but... but lately I've been startin' to see some cracks.

Doctor: You want to help her get better, don't you, Billy? We have to wake up Simon.

Gordon: I hit Wendy.
Phil: What?
Gordon: It was Friday night. I wanted to celebrate gettin' this job. I had the flowers, I had the champagne. I went into the kitchen. She was cookin' pasta. I wanted to kiss her. She turned around and before I knew it, there was a pot of boiling water all over my leg. And I don't know if it was the dog barkin', I don't know if it was Emma cryin', but I slapped her. I hit my wife. I love my wife. It was an accident. But I slapped her for it.

Gordon: What's the stupidest thing you've ever done?
Phil: You mean aside from coming to work for you?.. Well, I would have to say introducing Hank to Amy. That was pretty fucking stupid. I'd like to have that one back.

Henry: Madness is just overactive curiosity.

Doctor: If Mary is sick, then you are sick too, Billy.

Phil: He was a liability. I mean, he brought it on himself... Didn't he? I mean, it's typical. Typical Henry: The wrong place, at the wrong time.
Gordon: You did this?
Phil: Gordon! I need you to wake up, and take a really, really good look at him... You know what I wouldn't do? I wouldn't tell anybody about this, because if they find out about Hank, they're going to find out about the others.

Mike: Satanic Ritual Abuse Syndrome. It was big in the '80s.

Bill Griggs: They'd soak the nut-jobs in ice water, or they'd give 'em a lobotomy.

Henry: What are you... doing... here?

Phil: We'll take the tunnels. They're safer.
Jeff: "Safer"?

Henry: So, the loonies are out in the real world, and here we are with the keys to the loony bin, boys.

Phil: It says here that 19 were committed due to disappointed expectations, Hank, they're talkin' about you.

Phil: Look, you know what, can I ask you a quick question?
Security Guard: Yeah, sure.
Phil: Um, when was the hospital actually closed?
Security Guard: '85.
Phil: '85. Yeah, because, you know, I'm curious, because, you know, they got you, and you got the fire-arm on, and it's not like people are trying to get out, right?
Security Guard: No. No, not out - in.
Phil: In?

Factual error: When Mike first starts listening to the session tapes, the camera does a slow pan down the label on the box. Quite clearly, we can see that the patient's diagnosis is listed as "D.I.D.", along with a few names. Since the hospital closed in the mid 80's, it is not possible for her to have that diagnosis. Before the early 1990's, D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder) was known as M.P.D. (Multiple Personality Disorder). In later scenes it is correctly listed in the woman's files as Multiple Personality.

Trivia: The film was shot primarily at the Danvers State Asylum, an abandoned hospital. The script was written around the shooting location based on what rooms and corridors were safe to shoot in. Little to no set-dressing had to be done for the film, as it was suitably dilapidated and filled with abandoned medical equipment, which helped add to the film's atmosphere.
