Jim Hopper: Joyce, this is Hawkins, okay? You wanna know the worst thing that’s ever happened here in the four years I’ve been working here? Do you wanna know the worst thing? It was when an owl attacked Eleanor Gillespie’s head because it thought that her hair was a nest.

Nancy Wheeler: My mom was young; my dad was older, but he had a cushy job, money, came from a good family. So, they bought a nice house at the end of the cul-de-sac and started a nuclear family.

Jonathan: Screw that

Nancy: Yeah, screw that


Jonathan: My dad took me hunting on my birthday. Made me kill a rabbit.

Jonathan: What? I’m a fan of Thumper.


Jim: Will’s body, it was a fake….you were right…..this whole time you were right.

Chapter Eight: The Upside Down [S1.E8]


Martin Brenner: Six.

Joyce Byers: What?

Martin Brenner: Six. Six people have been taken this week. This thing that took your son… We don’t really understand it. But it’s behavior is predictable. Like all animals, it eats. It will take more sons. More daughters. I want to save them. I want to save your son. But I can’t do that. Not without your help.


Joyce Byers: Stop. I know who you are. I know what you’ve done. You took my boy away from me! You left him in that place to die! You faked his death! We had a funeral. We buried him. And now you’re asking for my help? Go to hell.


Eleven: No more…


Jim: You think I actually wanted to come to this?

I was just hungry!
