Laurie: Was that the Boogeyman?
Loomis: As a matter of fact, it was.

Laurie: Tommy, unlock the door! Come here, now you listen to me. I want you to go down the stairs, and out the front door. I want you to go down the street to the Mackenzie's house. I want you to tell them to call the police and tell them to send them over here. Now, do you understand me? Go do as I say.

Loomis: Ever done anything like this before?
Marion: Only minimum security.
Loomis: I see.
Marion: The only thing I can't stand is their gibberish... how they keep ranting on and on.
Loomis: You haven't anything to worry about. He hasn't spoken a word in fifteen years.

Laurie: Sleep tight, kids.

Tommy: But I saw the boogeyman! I saw him.
Laurie: Okay, what did he look like?
Tommy: Umm... the boogeyman.

Tommy: Laurie, what's the boogeyman?
Laurie: There's no such thing.

Marion: Don't you think it would be better if you referred to "it" as "him"?
Loomis: If you say so.
Marion: Your compassion's overwhelming, Doctor.

Tommy: What about the jack-o-lantern?
Laurie: After the movie.
Tommy: What about my comics?
Laurie: After the jack-o-lantern.
Tommy: What about the boogeyman?
Laurie: There's no such thing.

Laurie: Lynda, if this is a joke, I'll kill you.

Graveyard Keeper: Yeah, you know every town has something like this happen... I remember over in Russellville, old Charlie Bowles, about fifteen years ago... One night, he finished dinner, and he excused himself from the table. He went out to the garage, and got himself a hacksaw. Then he went back into the house, kissed his wife and his two children goodbye, and then he proceeded to.
Loomis: Where are we?
Graveyard Keeper: Eh? Oh, it's, uh, right over here.

Lynda: Now, when we get inside, Annie will distract Lindsey and we go upstairs to the first bedroom on the right. Got it?
Bob: First, I rip your clothes off.
Lynda: Don't rip my blouse. It's expensive, you idiot.
Bob: Then I rip my clothes off, then I rip Lindsey's clothes off. Yeah, I think I got it.

Lynda: So Annie, are we still on for tonight?
Annie: I wouldn't want to get you in deep trouble, Lynda.
Lynda: Oh, come on, Annie! Bob and I have been planning it for weeks.
Annie: All right, the Wallaces leave at seven.
Laurie: I'm babysitting the Doyles, it's two houses down. We can keep each other company.
Annie: Oh, terrific. I've got three choices: watch the kid sleep, listen to Lynda screw around, or talk to you.

Loomis: Stop here.
Marion: Shouldn't we go on up to the hospital and.
Loomis: Wait.

Continuity mistake: When Annie and Laurie leave the hardware store to go to their babysitting jobs it is broad daylight. When they reach the houses apparently just a few blocks away, it is already dark.

Question: Where did all of the kids' parents go that required babysitters for the entire night? Seems like a small town such as Haddonfield would not have many options.

Answer: There are only two families that hire babysitters in the film, the Doyle and Wallace families. Where they went is never explained, but it could be potentially anywhere. They could have gone on a trip out of town for the night, they don't have to be in Haddonfield.

Answer: Annual Halloween party as evidenced in the following instalment. Dr Mixtner was drunk and was at a party. The Strodes were also at a party, the same one if I recall correctly as the doctor.

Also we only SEE two families have babysitters. Other families could have had babysitters. We just don't see this. (I'm not sure if this adds anything additionally to the question asked, tho).
