The Freddy nursery rhyme
Freddy's claw screeching
NANCY: "I dreamed about a guy in a dirty red and green sweater..."
TINA: "You dreamed about the same creep I did!"
GLEN: "Morality sucks!!!"
FREDDY: "THIS is God!!!"
NANCY: "Screw your pass!!!"
FREDDY: "No running in the hallway!"
FREDDY: "Come to Freddy!!!"
Freddy laughing with his claw screeching
ROD: "There was this guy...he had knives for fingers!!!"
MARGE/DOCTOR: "What the hell are dreams, anyway?"
NANCY: "There's this guy...he's after us in our dreams..."
NANCY: "Do you know who that is mother...cause he's after me now!!!"
NANCY: "Screw sleep!!!"
NANCY: "I'm into survival"
MARGE: "He was a filthy child murderer who killed at least 20 kids..."
MARGE: "We lit the whole thing up and watched it burn..."
NANCY: "Whatever you do, don't fall asleep!!!"
FREDDY: "I'm your boyfriend now, Nancy!!!"
DONALD: "What's the coroner got to say?"
PARKER: "I don't know...he's been in the john puking since he saw it..."
FREDDY: "I'm gonna split you in two!!!"
