Grady daughters: Hello, Danny. Come and play with us. Come and play with us. Forever. And ever. And ever.
Injured Guest with Head Wound: Wonderful party, isn't it?
[Jack is trying to kill Wendy.] Jack: Do you have the slightest idea what a moral and ethical principle is, do you?
Bartender: What will you be drinking, sir? Jack Torrance: Hair of the dog that bit me, Lloyd!
Danny: Redrum! Redrum! Redrum!
Mr. Halloran: Mrs. Torrance, your husband inroduced you as Winifred. Now, are you a Winnie or a Freddy? Mrs. Torrance: I'm a Wendy! Mr. Halloran: Oh! That's nice, that's the prettiest.
Wendy Torrance: I just want to go back to my room to think things over. Jack Torrance: You've had your whole fucking life to think things over, what good's a few minutes more gonna do you now?
[Past guests at the Overlook Hotel.] Mr. Ullman: Four presidents, movie stars... Wendy: Royalty? Mr. Ullman: All the best people.
Mr. Halloran: Some places are like people: some shine and some don't.
Grady: My girls, sir, they didn't care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches and tried to burn it down. But I... CORRECTED them, sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I CORRECTED her.
Bartender: Women. Can't live with them, can't live without them. Jack: Words of wisdom, Lloyd, my man. Words of wisdom.
[About Wendy] Delbert Grady: I feel you will have to deal with this matter in the harshest possible way, Mr. Torrance. Jack: There's nothing I look forward to with greater pleasure, Mr. Grady.
Jack Torrance: You WERE the caretaker here, Mr. Grady. Delbert Grady: No sir, YOU are the caretaker. You've always been the caretaker. I ought to know: I've always been here.
Jack: Wendy! Wendy: Stay away! Jack: Darling! Light of my life! I'm not gonna hurt you. You didn't let me finish my sentence. I said, I'm not gonna hurt ya. I'm just gonna bash your brains in. I'm gonna bash 'em right the fuck in!
Jack Torrance: Here's Johnny!
Wendy Torrance: Hey! Wasn't it around here that the Donner Party got snowbound? Jack Torrance: I think that was farther west in the Sierras. Wendy Torrance: Oh. Danny Torrance: What was the Donner Party? Jack Torrance: They were a party of settlers in covered-wagon times. They got snowbound one winter in the mountains. They had to resort to cannibalism in order to stay alive. Danny Torrance: You mean they ate each other up? Jack Torrance: They had to, in order to survive. Wendy Torrance: Jack... Danny Torrance: Don't worry, Mom. I know all about cannibalism. I saw it on TV. Jack Torrance: See, it's OK. He saw it on the television.
Dick Hallorann: We've got canned fruits and vegetables, canned fish and meats, hot and cold syrups, Post Toasties, Corn Flakes, Sugar Puffs, Rice Krispies, Oatmeal... and Cream of Wheat. You got a dozen jugs of black molasses, we got sixty boxes of dried milk, thirty twelve-pound bags of sugar... Now we got dried peaches, dried apricots, dried raisins and dried prunes. [Then, telepathically to Danny] How'd you like some ice cream, Doc?
Delbert Grady: Did you know, Mr. Torrance, that your son is attempting to bring an outside party into this situation? Did you know that? Jack Torrance: No. Delbert Grady: He is, Mr. Torrance. Jack Torrance: Who? Delbert Grady: A nigger. Jack Torrance: A nigger? Delbert Grady: A nigger cook. Jack Torrance: How? Delbert Grady: Your son has a very great talent. I don't think you are aware how great it is. That he is attempting to use that very talent against your will. Jack Torrance: He is a very willful boy. Delbert Grady: Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir. Jack Torrance: It's his mother. She, uh, interferes. Delbert Grady: Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don't mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn't care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I "corrected" them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I "corrected" her.
Jack: Wendy! You have a surprise coming to you. Go check out the Snow Cat and the radio and you'll see what I mean. Go check it out!
Lloyd: How are things going, Mr. Torrance? Jack Torrance: Things could be better, Lloyd. Things could be a whole lot better.
