Gale Weathers
Gale Weathers: How's that for nostalgia, fucker?

36Gale Weathers OtherQuotesQuotes

Gale Weathers
Gale Weathers: He didn't get me. Tell Sidney he never got me.


Mindy: Fuck this franchise.

38Mindy OtherQuotesQuotes

Mindy: But we're not in a sequel. Because nobody just makes sequels anymore. We're in a franchise, and there are certain rules to a continuing franchise.

39Mindy OtherQuotesQuotes

Mindy: Rule one - everything is bigger than last time. Bigger budget, bigger cast, bigger body count, longer chases, shoot outs, beheadings, you gotta top what came before to keep people coming back.

40Mindy OtherQuotesQuotes

Mindy: Rule two - whatever happened last time, expect the opposite. Franchises only survive by subverting expectations. If the killers last time where whiny snowflake film nerds with Letterboxed accounts instead of personalities, you can bet the opposite will be true here.

41Mindy OtherQuotesQuotes

Mindy: And rule three - no one is safe. Legacy characters are cannon fodder at this point. Usually only brought back in some cheap bid for nostalgia. It's not looking too good for Gale and Kirby. And that's not even the worst part. The worst part is franchises are just continuing episodic installments designed to boost an IP. Which means, main characters are completely expendable now, too. Laurie Strode, Nancy Thompson, Ellen Ripley, Sally Hardesty, Jigsaw, Tony Stark, James Bond, I mean, even Luke Skywalker, all died so their franchises could live on. That means it's not just the friend group, any of us could go at any time, especially Sam and Tara.

42Sam OtherQuotesQuotes

Sam: Always gotta shoot 'em in the head.

43Tara OtherQuotesQuotes

Tara: You died a fucking virgin.
