Dammers: Sheriff! You are violating my territorial bubble.
Dammers: My body is a roadmap of pain. And pain has its valves.
Dammers: We have a body count of... twenty eight. You're a very dangerous man, Mr. Bannister.
Sheriff Walt Perry: For Christ's sake, you're not seriously suggesting that Frank is responsible for.
Dammers: You're way out of your depth here, Sheriff Perry. Please leave.
Sheriff Walt Perry: Frank Bannister is my prisoner.
Dammers: By the power invested in me by the president of the United States, I am telling you to get the hell out of this room.
Stuart, Bannister's Ghostly Assistant: Come on. You're out of your mind. You're talking about a mythical figure. A pseudo-religious icon from the 12th century.
Judge: Save your pea brain prattle for the classroom, boy. That was the soul collector and he's been taking people out since time began. He's been going about some dark business here in Fairwater and we ain't nothing but worm bait. When your number's up, that's it.
Judge: Give it up, Frank! Death ain't no way to make a living.
Patricia Ann Bradley: Patronising do-gooder bitch.
Johnny Charles Bartlett: Oh Patricia, you kill her, I'll watch.
Judge: When a man's jawbone drops off it's time to reassess the situation.
Patricia Ann Bradley: I'm in the mood for a little vivisection.
Dr. Lucy Lynskey: Tell me, why is it that you can see Ray and I can't?
Frank Bannister: I was in an accident. A car accident... about five years ago. I don't know. They say that sometimes when you have a traumatic experience that it can alter your perception.
Cyrus: You know if I wanted to get shot at everyday, I'd move my black ass to Los Angeles.
Old Lady Bradley: The wicked will be punished.
Ray Lynskey: Got a kiss for Honey Bunny? I know, I know it's the way I look. It's this damn ectoplasm stuff. It turns you off, doesn't it? Come on Lucy you're not listening to me.Look, baby I know we have a great relationship. It's just that lately I don't feel you've been giving hundred percent.
Sergeant Hiles: I am not one of your shitty little emanations, Bannister.
Ray Lynskey: Alright, Bannister. Can you at least give me a ride so I don't miss my funeral.
Frank Bannister: Catch you later, Hiles.
Sergeant Hiles: Hey, my tour of duty runs another 85 years! There's a piece of dirt up here with your name on it, Bannister! I'm waiting for you, you little maggot.
Sergeant Hiles: Get back in the goddamn ground you unorganized grab-asstic gob of teleplasmic shit.
Chosen answer: For the most part, the actors playing the ghosts were shot separately on blue-screens, and then comped into the scenes. (By removing the blue background through a process called "color keying", and placing them over the scenes) They were simply given a blueish glow and made semi-translucent to complete the effect. It was pretty cutting edge back in the 90's, but nowadays, it'd be very easy to make the exact same effect using a simple program like Adobe After Effects.
